Drama was brewing in the house following last week's episode of The Bachelor, during which frontrunner Sarah Trott collapsed mid-rose ceremony.
Things only got worse when Sarah decided to crash a group date, which she was not part of, after realizing how difficult it was competing with all the other women for Matt James's heart.
Taking time away from the women on the group date, some of whom have yet to have one-on-one time with Matt at all, did not sit well among the house. Despite receiving validation from Matt, with a target on her back, Sarah ended up hiding in her room the next day, refusing to interact with the ladies. However, Sarah eventually slid into the group just in time for the date card, which opened up a very uncomfortable confrontation.
After being called "calculated," "manipulative" and "toxic" by multiple women, Sarah was told she had "burned all bridges." Kit Keenan told Sarah, "I hope that your connection with Matt is very strong right now, because the rest of your living situation here is going to be horrible."
Ostracized from the group, Sarah ultimately decided to leave The Bachelor, as she revealed to Katie, whose time with Matt she had previously interrupted, that she had decided to leave the show because she didn't want to lose time with her father, who has been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
As Katie delivered the news to the rest of the women, reminding them to "stay classy" during this time, Bachelor Nation fell more in love with the contestant who hilariously showed up with a sex toy on day one.
Meanwhile, Sarah delivered the news to Matt, which ended with a tearful goodbye. "I've prayed about this, and I've thought about it, and, like, I just feel really called to, like, go home and be with my family. I just don't think I'm ready for this," Sarah told Matt, who responded, "That doesn't mean I'm gonna stop thinking about you and praying for your dad and thinking about your family. When you're ready, some guy is gonna be extremely lucky, and I'm bummed that it's not me, but I've learned so much from you already and what it means to sacrifice and do anything for the family and for people you love, and I'm gonna miss you."
"This isn't the best Sarah, and Matt deserves the best. I gave it my all. I just can't do this. But part of me thinks I'm making a mistake because he is so incredible," said Sarah as she left the show sobbing.
