Who Is Becca Kufrin? 5 Quick Facts About ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Before Season 14 Premieres

For most fans, it seemed fitting that Becca Kufrin would become the next Bachelorette. She was heartbroken in March after Arie Luyendyk broke up with her on live television, months after he said he wanted to spend his life with her on the Season 22 finale of The Bachelor. But Kufrin was given a chance at another happy ending when ABC decided to make her the new Bachelorette. Now, it will be Kufrin’s turn to choose from a plethora of men as she tries to find a shot at love again.

“With the help of her family and friends, Becca was able to pick up the pieces and put the focus back on herself, moving forward with her life,” her biography on ABC reads. “It is strong willpower and a firm set of Midwest values that lead Becca to one certain conclusion: She is willing to take another leap of faith to look for her soul mate, the love of her life, again. But this time, it will be on her terms and forever.”
