Sarah has good looks, charm and a graceful presence, but she's the youngest bachelorette left on Clayton's season.
Mara Agreat therefore warned Clayton that Sarah didn't seem prepared for an engagement and to become a wife. The conversation left Clayton wondering if Sarah was on the show just to have a good time, travel and make new friends.
But when Clayton confronted Sarah about the allegation, she was "shocked," disturbed and incredibly emotional.
"I absolutely see myself being engaged at the end of this... That is why I am here... and I wouldn't be here if I wasn't ready for that and if I didn't see that with you," Sarah insisted during a one-on-one date with Clayton in Hvar, Croatia.
When Clayton took a moment to himself to think things over, Sarah burst into tears when talking to a producer.
"What the f-ck?! It's clearly someone upset who's questioning their relationship and feels the need to tear down someone that seemingly has a good relationship. It's a b-tch-ass move. Why would you do that to me?!" Sarah lamented.
She yelled out, "What the actual f-ck?!... It's complete bullsh-t... It's like a Hail Mary, like, 'Oh, I'm going home this week and so I might as well throw this girl under a bus who's getting her second one-on-one.'"
Clayton could see Sarah's heart and how genuine she was being, and so The Bachelor star decided to give her a rose -- but Mara and Sarah's feud will likely continue on the show.
Sarah was adopted by a white family. She is 30 percent Vietnamese, French and Irish, and so she says she looks different from her family.
Sarah's biological parents welcomed her into the world when they were 20 years old and not ready to raise a child.
Sarah said she grew up ashamed of her adopted background because she always felt like a second choice; however, she grew up feeling love and eventually recognized her adoption was a blessing.
