A preview for the Feb. 14 episode of The Bachelor shows Mara Agrait confronting Clayton Echard with some claims that have him doubting some of the other ladies. “I’ve been nothing but honest with you,” she says. “I’ve been vulnerable, I’ve been sweet, cute, flirty. I’ve done literally everything that you say you’re looking for and I’m getting nothing in return. You’ve been adamant saying that you’re looking for a wife, children and long-term. But women that you’re directing your attention to don’t reflect that.”

Mara also says that “age” is a factor with some of the women. When Clayton points out that Sarah Hamrick is the youngest woman in the house, Mara admits, “She’s definitely one of the people I would think is maybe not fully ready.” Mara’s confession leaves Clayton wondering who is actually on the show for the right reasons. As we wait to see how it plays out for him, learn more about Mara here:
