Samantha Jeffries On Bachelor 26
Samantha announced her participation in the 26th season of The Bachelor on the 16th December 2021. She went to her Instagram and posted her photo with captions “I can explain [grimace emoji]..…… #TheBachelor premieres Monday, January 3, on ABC!”
The post also had a The Bachelor contestant introduction of Samantha. In the introduction, Samantha was described as an “outgoing go-getter who always has a glass-half-full attitude”. The introduction also says that Samantha was ready to find “a man with whom to grow a family”.
Samantha’s ideal man is friendly, outgoing, loyal, and supportive. And she loves someone who can clean up after himself. She does not want someone who she has to take care of. And she came to The Bachelor thinking that Clayton Echard might be that man.
To say a little about Clayton Echard, he is a former football player who comes from Missouri. Clayton played professional football for Missouri Tigers for a few years. In 2016, he even got signed with Seattle Seahawks. However, he never got to play in the league for the Hawks.
He retired from professional football in 2019 and has since been working in marketing. Clayton entered the Bachelor Universe as a contestant in the 18th season of The Bachelorette with Michelle Young as the leading lady. He could not win Michelle’s heart but quickly found himself as the next pick for The Bachelor.
According to the reports that have come so far, Samantha was not successful in her pursuit of an ideal man. At least, she was not successful on The Bachelor. Reality Steve recently revealed the top three of the Clayton Echard season. And apparently, Clayton Echard’s top three ladies are Gabby Windey, Rachel Recchia, and Susie Evans.
