'The Bachelor' star Jenn Tran says her parents had a troubled relationship.

While Jenn hasn't publicly disclosed many details about her parents, she does tell Joey their relationship encountered significant challenges during her formative years. This upbringing resulted in her facing her own trials in relationships and grappling with doubts about her worthiness of love and commitment.

She recounts a period when her parents' relationship deteriorated to the point of constant fighting, leaving her feeling like a failure, as she lacked a positive model of a loving partnership. Eventually, her parents even resorted to sleeping in separate rooms, with her father residing in the basement for nearly six years.
