Engaged ‘Bachelorette’ Becca Kufrin ‘Fell for Two Guys’ on Season 14
Becca Kufrin may have been jilted by Arie Luyendyk Jr., who brutally broke up with her just weeks after giving her his final rose during the finale of The Bachelor last season, but it looks like there was plenty of love to go around for Kufrin during her upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with the new Bachelorette on Wednesday (May 23), where Kufrin revealed that she fell for not one, but two suitors while filming her season.
"I did develop really strong feelings for a couple of them and I did fall for two guys at the end, yes," Kufrin shared, adding that after her heartbreaking experience on The Bachelor, she wanted to make sure she treated all the contestants "with respect."
"Until you're in this position, you don't realize how much pressure there really is, and how difficult it is to navigate certain relationships," the 28-year-old publicist continued. "Because if you're doing it right, you should be developing feelings for multiple people to really sift through every personality, every relationship, to exhaust the ones that aren't right for you."
And the strategy was a success: On Tuesday (May 22), ABC confirmed that Kufrin got engaged during her season.
"[I love] so many things [about the man I chose]," she gushed. "Just that he put up with me through the entire journey ... It feels so different because the relationship and the guy is different. And this time, it feels better suited for me, it's like this better fit for me and what I need in my life. And I am willing to do anything it takes to make it work to support my partner."
As for their future? "He better marry me!" she joked.
Meanwhile, Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancée, Bachelor Season 22 runner-up Lauren Durham, recently announced they plan to get married in Hawaii on January 12.
Season 14 of The Bachelorette airs Monday, May 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
