ABC producers promised that the 26th season of The Bachelor with Clayton Echard was to be dramatic… And we have to say that they didn’t lie. So far, there has been drama with several contestants including Cassidy Timbrook and Shanae Ankney, who appears to be this season's villain. 

In the second episode, Ankney was part of a group date and she caused some trouble. She seemed jealous of fellow contestant Elizabeth Corrigan, who was having the most time with Clayton Echard. So, she decided to speak with him, calling Corrigan “two-faced” because she ignored her during a pool day. 

Then, fans learned that Elizabeth actually suffers from ADHD, as she explained herself with Shanae. "It's really hard for me to have multiple auditory inputs because I can't process the information. I have ADHD. I've had it really bad since I was a kid," she said. But Shanae didn’t react well about it, sharing the information without her permission, mocking her and even claiming Elizabeth was lying.
