The Former Olympian recently participated as a contestant in The Bachelor season 26th, featuring the 28-year-old Clayton Echard, a medical sales representative from Eureka, Missouri.

Being one of the 32 contestants vying for Clayton Echard’s heart, Marlena was labeled “the Full Package” over ABC’s bio.  They said, “Marlena is definitely the full package, and to say she’s accomplished would be an understatement.”

Marlena is not only the vice president of human resources but also runs her own real estate company, thereby owning several properties. She also won the 400-meter sprint for Clemson in April 2012 at the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Outdoor championships with a time of 51.43 seconds, which was a meet record and her 4th consecutive 400-meter ACC championship. It is a current American college record and 17th best in the world, and this time made her eligible to compete in the Olympics for both Haiti and America. Out of her parent’s five children, Wesh is the only one that considers themselves Haitian-American.


In March 2012 at Boise State University in Idaho, Marlena earned All-American designation in Division I Championship.

When Marlena loves, she loves hard and is looking for the right partner with whom to settle down. Wesh prefers to travel solo and has visited more than 15 countries and she says there’s nothing or no one in this world who could convince her to go bungee jumping.

Wesh is now trying her best to find the man of her dreams. She is not only a hard worker but also a hard lover, though her chance of winning Clayton’s heart wasn’t looking good. While promoting her appearance on the show, she wrote on her Instagram page on 16th Dec ” got sick of and tired swiping left so I swiped right on over to Clayton’s…….heart. Cash me inside.”
