After enduring what can only be described as human torture at the hands of ABC, the network has rewarded Becca Kurfin with a starring gig on “The Bachelorette.”
The announcement came just minutes after she was forced to watch her former fianceé
Arie Luyendyk Jr. propose to the girl he called to reconcile with while they were still engaged.
Despite all of these things, Becca still wants to be on “The Bachelorette,” even though Chris Harrison and his crew have aleady lied to her face. Chris told her, “it means the world to me and all of us that you trust us enough to give us your heart again and to let me, help you find the love of your life. I take that job very serious.”

Chris, no you don’t. And your track record is abysmal.
Here’s the full press release:
The gut-wrenching finish to Becca Kufrin’s romance with Arie Luyendyk Jr. left Bachelor Nation speechless. In a change of heart, Arie broke up with America’s sweetheart just weeks after proposing to her – stealing her fairytale ending and her future. Now, the humble fan favorite and girl next door from Minnesota returns for 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 The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. The announcement was made tonight on the live “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” special.
With the help of her family and friends, Becca Kurfin was able to pick up the pieces and put the focus back on herself, moving forward with her life. 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.
Becca was raised by her parents Jill and Steve Kufrin, who provided a consummate example of what a marriage should be. She also looks up to her older sister, Emily, the epitome of confidence and charisma. Her father’s passing when she was 19 was pivotal and made her look at life through a different lens, where she learned to appreciate each day to the fullest. When Becca isn’t making a splash at the boutique public relations agency where she works or planning her next overseas trip, she can be found at home hosting dinner parties for her friends.
Will Becca be ready for another engagement after such a heartwrenching breakup? Or will her past haunt her own journey to find the one? Becca believes she can find love again – this time, forever!
