As teased online by Bachelor in Paradise, Mara Agrait has arrived on the beach! It’s been a while since viewers last saw the contestant from Clayton Echard’s Bachelor season, who was sent home after getting into drama with Sarah Hamrick, suggesting she was too young to be thinking seriously about an engagement.

So, where has Mara been since The Bachelor? Here’s everything to know about Mara, in case you need a refresher.

Mara’s Job

Though Mara’s Bachelor bio simply identified her as an entrepreneur from Collingswood, New Jersey, her online presence provides a closer look at her work. On what seems to be Mara’s LinkedIn account, she’s listed as a director of development at SilverSmart Tech, an organization that aims to empower seniors through technology.

Mara also works in entertainment and event planning, with experience as a “dancer and crowd motivator.” She even has a separate Instagram page, @agreateventcompany, dedicated to her services in that area. Good thing, too, because according to her Bachelor bio, “she considers herself the life of the party and is looking for a man to settle down with and keep life fun.” She even has a #vanlife Instagram, @themapquester. and apparently took a break to film The Bachelor — but returned with a telling post this March. “Getting lost 🌲To find myself ⛰,” she wrote.

Mara’s Instagram

Speaking of Instagram, Mara’s personal account features plenty of snaps of nights out with friends — “because there is nothing better than surrounding yourself with beautiful, successful and loving women that encourage you to be your best self,” she wrote in one post, where she posed with fellow Bachelor alum Kira Mengistu.

Mara’s also met up with more Bachelor friends, including several familiar faces from this season of Paradise.

She also shares photos from her travels. Post-Bachelor, those locations have included visiting the beach in Puerto Rico (where she was born), skiing in Vermont, and celebrating her birthday in New York.

Mara’s Instagram also suggests she’s pretty close with her family, including four-legged member Jaxon Rue, an adorable Cavapoo whose Instagram account Mara co-manages.

Mara After The Bachelor

Though she went home single, Mara clearly was open to giving her journey another try via Bachelor in Paradise. Wondering how that’s going to go? There are just a few episodes left, but — and spoilers ahead for Bachelor in Paradise Season 8! Reality Steve reports that Mara is not one of the final couples, despite reportedly getting into a love triangle during her brief time on the show.
