The gut-wrenching finish to Becca Kufrin’s romance with Arie Luyendyk Jr. left Bachelor Nation SHOOK! In a change of heart, Arie broke up with the Minnesota native just weeks after proposing to her–and is now engaged to her rival, Lauren Burnham.
Host Chris Harrison didn’t see it coming. Or probably he did. In any case, the humble fan favorite and girl next door returns for
more misery a second shot at love, starring on The Bachelorette, when it premieres for its 14th season on Monday May 28 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC. The announcement was made tonight on the live The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special.
Will Becca be ready for another engagement after such a terrible blindside? Why not! This time, she calls the shots and won’t walk away empty handed. There are television careers and social media empires to build. So let the games begin.
Actually, the games DID begin on the After the Final Rose special, where Becca met four of her Bachelor suitors. And it was pretty awkward. Looking for more? We’ll be live blogging The Bachelorette when it premieres this spring.
