The cameras lingered as Kufrin tried in vain to find privacy to cry and so did Luyendyk despite Kufrin's repeated requests that he leave. "I'm ready for it", she said.
Luckily, she has a lot of "bigger and better things" to look forward to, like the fact that she'll be the one handing out the roses when The Bachelorette returns to ABC for it's 14th season on Monday, May 28. Turns out that Christensen, 24, a lifelong Savage resident, knew of Kufrin, 27, when they both attended Prior Lake High School. "I find the irony in that tragically amusing".
She said she "feels" for Kufrin and is eager to see her as the next "Bachelorette".
Becca shows up in a new gold dress and she's ready for a new chapter!
And in another shocking twist, Arie manages to leave this whole process smelling like a rose because how can you argue with love and heavy-handed production? "If a girl's feeling the butterflies for a guy already, when she gets into that state, her feelings just become more powerful, so she's probably more willing to tell that guy she loves him", she continued.
Members of #TeamBecca have also Venmo'd her more than $6,000 in wine money.
"The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of the 'The Bachelor, '" the bill reads. Drew Christensen tweeted that he would draft a bill banning Arie from the state if he was re-tweeted 1,000 times. Arie Luyendyk Jr. could soon be banned from the state of Minnesota. Still, it's amusing that after all this hubbub about Lauren being Arie's second choice, that it's actually Arie who might be the rebound man.
"And it took a long, hard road to get here", Arie said. It's something people dream of, and you robbed me of that. "It would have happened regardless".
According to the engaged Bachelor couple, the wedding will happen this year.
After a season of low ratings and a rather bland bachelor in Arie Luyendyk Jr., ABC was clearly desperate for a hit.
