As seen in the clip above, Mackenzie is immediately envious of Ashley I.’s chastity, telling her that Soules will love it — and may even keep her around longer because of it. “Every guy likes it,” the 21-year-old dental assistant insists. “Because guys like taking your virginity.”

Later, in a confessional, Mackenzie says she wishes she were in the same boat. “When Ashley told me she was a virgin, I was like, ‘Seriously?’ I’m so jealous,” she admits. “I can’t even use that because I have a kid.”
