Susie Evans and Clayton Echard have been through some hardships and obstacles throughout their relationship.
From getting sent home, to leaving Clayton in Iceland, to reconciling and getting back together and facing criticism from fans, and most recently, the alleged cheating scandal by a famous TikToker.
However, the duo has overcome these trials and seems more in love and happier than ever. Their playful, humorous personalities really come out when they are together.
Clayton Echard toyed with Susie Evans by telling her he didn’t think she was really the athletic type of girl
Susie took that as a challenge and set out to prove her boyfriend wrong as they took their first pit stop on a long road trip from Arizona back to Virginia Beach, where the two have decided to live together.
Their first stop was Moab, Utah, and as Susie ran up the steep incline of the red rocks in a video, she wrote, “This week Clayton called me a non-athlete … This will show him.” In the background, she had Good Day by Greg Street featuring Nappy Roots playing.
As she got to the top, she flexed her arms and did a little jig to show just how athletic she truly is. She also captioned the video, “Moments after I fell straight on my butt downhill …. #moab.”
What did Bachelor Nation have to say about Clayton’s comment and the video?
Bachelor Nation alums and fans also took to the comments to agree with Susie and condemn Clayton for even saying that to her.
The first person to comment on the video was Hunter Haag, who was on Clayton’s season with Susie. She wrote, “It’s giving ‘as if you can outrun me, as if you could fight me off. I’m designed to kill,'” poking fun at the vampire series, Twilight.
A lot of the fan comments centered around the fact that Susie is seasoned in Jiu-Jitsu, and that was shown during the season on hometowns. One fan said, “Take care of him back on the mats lol.”
Another stated, “Jokes exist, but u literally do jiu jitsu soooo (rolling eyes emoji and tongue-sticking-out emoji).” One other gave Susie props for showing Clayton up, as she wrote, “You showeddd himmm (laughing/crying emoji and red-heart face emoji).”
Even more, fans couldn’t believe Clayton would say that, even if he was joking, as Susie has proven herself more than once on the mats. They wrote things like, “Your not athletic give him a little ju Jitsu karate,” and “Holddd up, he called you a “non-athlete” after you triangle choked his a** on camera?! The AUDACITY (laughing/crying face emoji).”
Another fan was dumbfounded as they posted, “A ‘non-athlete’? WTAF? (three red X’s).” Even one more gave some smack back to Clayton, as he declared, “And he shouldn’t be talking. He never even played in the NFL (laughing/crying face emoji).”
While it seems like Clayton was just trying to get a rise out of Susie and joking with her, she took to those rocks ready to show him and prove him wrong.
Bachelor Nation fans are looking forward to seeing where their next stop is going to take them on their couple’s road trip back to Virginia.
