The Jan. 11 episode of The Bachelor ended in the middle of Matt James‘ second rose ceremony. He was about halfway through giving out his roses when one woman, Sarah Trott, abruptly left the rose ceremony because she felt like she was going to faint. The episode ended as a ‘To Be Continued,’ with the medical team rushing to Sarah’s aide and Matt checking in and trying to calm her down.
Sarah first made headlines during The Bachelor premiere, when viewers pointed out that she looked just like Annie Murphy, who plays Alexis Rose on Schitt’s Creek. Matt fell for Sarah during their first meeting, which led to him giving her one of the first one-on-one dates of the season. Things went well between the two, as Sarah got vulnerable and opened up about her dad’s battle with ALS. Even though she got a rose on the date, she started to become overwhelmed by the process at the second rose ceremony. As we wait to see Sarah’s fate, here’s more to know about her:
1. She previously worked in TV news. Sarah studied Broadcast Journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and graduated in 2018. Throughout college, she worked as a reporter for KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. After graduation, she became the Weekend Morning Anchor at CBS Local 2 news in Palm Springs, California. However, Sarah quit her job in television news in June 2019 to care for her father, who was suffering from ALS.
