Sarah Trott is out! The 24-year-old former broadcast journalist said goodbye to Matt James on Mondays episode of The Bachelorafter a rollercoaster episode that fans didnt see coming. 

Sarah, who connected with Matt James on one of the first one-on-one dates of the season last week, left the show after sharing she felt compelled to be home with her dad, who has ALS and could have just "weeks" to live. But that wasnt all that led to her decision. After angering the women by stealing time with Matt on a group date she wasnt on and subsequently isolating herself from the cast, Sarah told Matt about how she was attacked by allegedly "cruel and malicious" cast mates. 

Before heading over to Matts place to say goodbye, Sarah had a heart-to-heart with Katie, whose conversation she interrupted on the group date. Though mad at the time, Katie came to check in on Sarah, and told her she didnt like how some of the women responded to her attempted apology. 

"Ive already made up my mind. Ive decided Im going to leave. I cant do this," Sarah told Katie. "Its been a combination of things. It wasnt just last night." 

"I really believe in the feelings I have for him, but Im not cut out for this. I just cant give this my all. All my worst insecurities are coming out. I really have to put my well-being first, and Im not in a good headspace here," she continued. "I havent really opened up to you about the situation with my dad, but he has a terminal illness, and its not like, years or months, its like, weeks. So, its really weighing on my heart too -- time away from him. And I thought I was ready for this, but I have to be true to myself." 

"Its so hard to explain what the past two days have been like, and Im just like, so sorry," she began, sitting down with Matt. "Our connection is amazing, but like, Ive been processing it, and Im just doubting everything and if Im ready and if I can truly do this. And I told you how important family is to me, and being away from them -- I think its just weighing so hard on me." 

"I just feel like, so alone here, and I was just completely attacked by so many of the women in the house," she added. And I just feel like Im not welcome."

Matt asked Sarah to reveal more about how the women were treating her. "I went downstairs to like, apologize to the women for being in my room all day, and was like, completely attacked. Some of the women in there are just cruel and malicious, and its like, really hard for me," she said. 

"I cant imagine what youre going through from a standpoint of your family back home and what its like to be in the house," Matt replied, but assured Sarah he wanted her there. "You shared with me your heart, and that meant something to me.... I dont want to lose you." 

Sarah thanked Matt, but said she made up her mind. "Ive prayed about this, and Ive thought about it, and I just felt really called to go home and be with my family. I just dont think Im ready for this," she expressed. "I wish you could see my heart."
