Marlena Wesh has it all. She runs her own real estate company, flaunts a stunning net worth and she even is an Olympian. Now, all Marlena needs is a man to settle down and start a new family. And who better than the Bachelor 26 star Clayton Echard to try her luck on?
Let’s learn all about this beautiful Bachelor 26 contestant as this Marlena Wesh Bio proceeds.
Marlena Wesh On Bachelor 26
ABC’s The Bachelor never fails to deliver us with a variety of contestants, and Marlena Wesh surely was one of a kind this season. Introduced as one of 32 contestants vying for Clayton Echard’s heart, Marlena was labeled “the full package” over ABC’s bio.
They shared — “to say Marlena’s accomplished, would be an understatement.” And given her success, we couldn’t agree more. However, her accomplishment in the love department fell far behind. She’s worked very hard in life, only to find herself alone when she hit her 30s.
Now, Marlena is trying her best to find the man of her dreams. She says she isn’t only a hard worker, but also a hard lover.
But her chance of winning over Clayton wasn’t looking good.
As per the Bachelor expert, Reality Steve — Gabby W., Rachel R., and Susie E. were the final three ladies who made it to the top 3. But, he didn’t exactly know who stole Clayton’s heart.
Promoting her appearance on the show, Marlena took it to her IG on Dec 16 to write, “got sick and tired of swiping left so I swiped right on over to Clayton’s…. heart. Cash me inside”
