Clayton Echard’s father is the newest and most unexpected critic of his son’s actions in the most recent preview for the upcoming episodes of The Bachelor.
The preview starts out on a high with clips of Clayton’s final three women gushing about The Bachelor as they take on stunning dates together.
Clayton himself reveals he could see a future with any of the three women as he kisses Susie Evans in a waterfall, cuddles up to Rachel Recchia in a helicopter, and laughs with Gabby Windey on a dirt road.
However, things quickly take a turn for the worst once Clayton reveals to the women that he is in love with all three.
Clayton Echard’s dad tells him he’s to blame for how The Bachelor ends
Clayton’s revelation leaves the women sobbing and questioning their relationships with The Bachelor.
In the brand-new preview, Clayton’s dad slams his son and tells him he has no one to blame but himself for the fallout of his controversial declaration.
“I had no idea this is what was going to happen,” Clayton appears to tell his stern-faced parents.
“Don’t blame anybody but yourself,” his dad snaps back. He shuts his son down again when he appears ready to argue. “You’re grasping at straws.”
Clayton seems upset and exasperated by his father’s unwillingness to listen to his explanation.
“This is exactly what I was afraid of,” Clayton says in another clip. “How can I go forward? I don’t believe in anything anymore.”
The preview ends on a cliffhanger with Clayton uttering the long-awaited “I’m so broken” line as he drops his head to cry.
