Shanae sparked drama when she told Clayton that Elizabeth was "fake" and "two-faced" for allegedly acting like her friend one minute and then ignoring her the next.
Elizabeth explained she struggles to process multiple auditory inputs at once because she's had severe ADHD ever since she was a child, but Shanae didn't buy the story and mocked Elizabeth's disorder.
"ADHD my ass," Elizabeth snapped.
Shanae later told Clayton that she felt The Bachelor environment was "toxic" and several women -- namely Elizabeth -- were bullying her and lying to Clayton about their actions.
Although all the women in the house had teamed up against Shanae, Clayton only saw glimpses of Shanae and Elizabeth's bickering, and so he chose to send Elizabeth packing.
Elizabeth cried following her ouster, saying that Shanae "wants to destroy everyone and anyone in the room."
Shanae, however, wasn't about to let a bunch of "mean girls" send her home, and she continued to woo and pursue Clayton aggressively. The bachelorette even crashed a football group-date afterparty that she hadn't been invited to.
Until viewers can watch what happens between Shanae and Clayton onThe Bachelor this season going forward, let's get to know this controversial and polarizing bachelorette a little better right now.
Below is a list of eight facts Reality TV World has compiled about Shanae Ankney.
And the final piece of advice Elizabeth gave her followers was, "BE A GOOD PERSON!!"
When Elizabeth uploaded her video, she also wrote, "It's okay to not be okay."
Clayton wishes he sent Shanae home much earlier
Clayton apologized to Elizabeth for denying her a rose after all the drama with Shanae.
After apparently receiving backlash from Bachelor Nation for eliminating Elizabeth and keeping Shanae on his season, Clayton posted a public apology to on his social media accounts.
"I'm sorry, Elizabeth, for what you're going through. I wish I could have seen what was happening when I wasn't there. I obviously knew y'all weren't in a good place with each other, but I thought at the time that it was, solely, petty drama," Clayton wrote in postings he made on both Twitter and Instagram.
"I would have sent Shanae home immediately for making fun of you for being neurodivergent, had I known."
Clayton admitted watching Season 26 back so far has brought him anxiety and feelings of guilt.
"Overall, the experience for me watching hasn't been fun, simply because I'm seeing all the damage that I caused," Clayton stated.
"I really meant well, but my actions weren't always the best as I now can see the repercussions from my decisions."
Clayton went on to promise The Bachelor fans that he's "learning" from "the mistakes."
"[I] am doing everything in my power to come out the other side a better man," Clayton concluded.
As The Bachelor was airing its fourth episode, Clayton reminded his followers that "mental health matters" and people should keep that in mind before hitting "send," which suggests people had been sending Clayton hate and criticism for his decisions.
Clayton also tweeted -- seemingly in response to Elizabeth and Shanae's feud on the show -- "I'm looking forward to having an open and honest discussion at [The Women Tell All] with what all happened."
"It's important to hold people accountable, including myself. #TheBachelor," he added.
Elizabeth replied to Clayton's tweet, "I'm ready."
