On The Bachelor's 26th season, Shanae told Clayton that Elizabeth was "a bully" and "toxic" to the house, and Lyndsey Windham also left a conversation with Clayton crying during a group date because Shanae had tattled on her for allegedly being a bully as well.
Sierra dished her thoughts on Shanae's accusations during a Wednesday appearance on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast hosted by Becca Kufrin and co-hosted by Serena Pitt.
"I think Shanae and how she handled it was just completely ridiculous. She is delusional, because she's like, 'No one took my shrimp! I offered shrimp!' And then you literally see the clip of [Mara Agreat] taking the plate of shrimp and sharing it with the women in the hot tub," Sierra said.
"It's like, 'Okay, what did you want?' It's just hilarious to me. It's hilarious to me how out-of-hand it got and how much she held onto the hold shrimp thing, you know?"
Sierra noted, "It just makes me think if something that small can push you over the edge and make your cup overflow, then there are some things you need to work on!"
Since viewers haven't seen Shanae give a tangible reason or example of how she was supposedly bullied while filming the show, Becca asked Sierra if Shanae had ever confronted the other women and addressed her feelings considering calling someone a bully is an extreme statement to make.
"Whenever we talked at the cocktail [party] and you see me asking her, 'Hey, can you give us actual reasons of when you experienced this bullying?' And we also tried again at the other cocktail [party]. We tried again to talk to her," Sierra explained.
"And she will not give you an explanation. She won't. Her immediate reaction is to defend and then deflect."
Sierra claimed Shanae would immediately write someone off and just say, "I'm done!"
"[Shanae would say], 'I'm done talking about this. I don't want to talk about it any more. I'm done,'" Sierra recalled.

"But I'm like, 'No! If you're going to say [Elizabeth or Lyndsey is a bully] and accuse people of something, you need to give an explanation, especially when you call people bullies and you're the one bullying.'"
Shanae and Elizabeth's feud ran through multiple episodes of The Bachelor.
It all began when Shanae accused Elizabeth of being "fake" and "two-faced" because Elizabeth had allegedly acted like her friend one minute only to ignore her the next.
Shanae told Clayton that she noticed a big "red flag" with Elizabeth, who then apologized to Shanae for making her feel left out. Elizabeth explained she may not have heard Shanae talking to her in a group setting because she struggles with ADHD and processing multiple auditory inputs at once.
Shanae believed Elizabeth -- who allegedly did not acknowledge Shanae's presence while she was sitting in a hot tub -- had turned everyone against her.
The argument came to be known as #ShrimpGate, which Sierra said was "100 percent hilarious because it's so ridiculous that it's funny."
Although Elizabeth attempted to bury the hatchet with Shanae multiple times and respectfully move on from the drama, Shanae proceeded to tell Clayton that Elizabeth was a "bully" and "a liar" and that she had created a toxic environment.
Elizabeth was then sent packing after spending most of her time with Clayton defending herself.
Elizabeth said during a recent appearance on "Click Bait with Bachelor Nation" that Shanae began targeting her during a group date hosted by ZIWE, when Elizabeth was able to sit next to Clayton for a game of truths and Shanae was jealous of that.
"I'm sorry, Elizabeth, for what you're going through. I wish I could have seen what was happening when I wasn't there," Clayton wrote.
"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. I would have sent Shanae home immediately for making fun of you for being neurodivergent, had I known."
Clayton also said watching Season 26 back "hasn't been fun" because he's seeing "the damage" he caused and "the repercussions" from his decisions.
Clayton promised he's learning from his mistakes and wants to come out of this experience a better man, and he reminded everyone that "mental health matters," including his own.
He also recently tweeted, "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."
Elizabeth replied to Clayton's tweet, "I'm ready," and later posted a lengthy statement on Instagram about how she had felt tormented, attacked, bullied, and physically abused while competing for Clayton's heart.
Meanwhile, Shanae has not apologized or shown any indication of remorse on social media.
Instead, she posted lighthearted video clips of shrimp and herself dancing in her "The Bachelor Bowl" jersey while watching Monday night's episode.
