Cassidy Timbrooks has some of the other girls questioning her intentions on the Jan. 10 episode of The Bachelor. A preview for the episode shows Cassidy telling another contestant, “There’s one guy that I’ve been hooking up with one and off.” Later on, that woman appears to confront Clayton Echard with the information, telling him, “She was FaceTiming him right before she met you.”

Another sneak peek shows Cassidy slacking off on the group date, where the ladies were tasked with planning a birthday party for a group of kids. Instead of doing the task she was assigned, Cassidy pulled Clayton aside for one-on-one time. “I don’t really care if the girls are a little miffed,” she admits. “Ultimately, I’m here to date Clayton.” The other girls are not happy with Cassidy’s actions, and someone even calls her “disrespectful.” Meanwhile, Cassidy declares that she’s a “frontrunner” for Clayton’s heart. We’ll see how it all goes down when the episode airs, but for now, he’s more to know about Cassidy:
