Never give up! Becca Kufrin hasn’t stopped looking for The One despite having a several very public breakups through the time.
Former Bachelorette, who was set to fall in love when she was a part of Bachelor Nation in the year 2018 -however, her happy ever after ended up being ruined when Arie Luyendyk. decided to end their short engagement and moved on to Lauren Burnham.
The Bourdon founder decided to return to reality television later that year, in hopes of finding an enduring partner. But, she was on her own after splitting with former lover Garrett Yrigoyen in August 2020.
Even with the majority of ups and downs of her romance, Kufrin has been vocal about the benefits of joining her fellow members of the Bachelor Family — and the reason she’s not afraid to put her heart on the line again and time.
“When people ask me if the Bachelor is ‘real’ or ‘really works,’ I always say yes,” the former Bachelor Live Tour cohost wrote on Instagram in October of 2020, alongside an image of his friend Caroline Lunny. “Because I found love in my friendships, and this girl is proof of how worthwhile that journey was.”
A month before, Kufrin revealed why she was not on the verge of settling down following two unsuccessful engagements.
“I’m thirty. I’m about to be content to not have to put all my eggs into one basket,” she explained during the September 2020 episode of Rachel Lindsay’s “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast. “Just kind of enjoy the experience that life and dating have to offer.”
She added: “I feel like, it’s this strange the most magical place I’m currently in. Perhaps it’s because I’ve also relocated into L.A. and it’s this new chapter. It’s as if it’s magic.”
Kufrin finally tried her hand at a reality TV romance once more at the end of the season in 2021. She joked the phrase “third times the charm” after having a chance encounter with Thomas Jacobs on Bachelor in Paradise. Although they briefly broke up during the show’s Oct. 2021 finale, the couple confirmed that they were dating.
“I’m sorry for breaking up with you on national television, but I’ll take every day to make it up to you, Tommy,” Kufrin’s captioned Instagram video following the show’s finale was aired. “Thanks that you made my heart smile more than it’s ever. Now it’s time to begin living the life of a real person.”

“I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” she said in a tearful episode of Lindsay’s and her podcast back in the day. “After numerous conversations and discussions, we reached the decision. This wasn’t something we had to make a decision at the whim of a night. It wasn’t solely based off the content of an Instagram post or someone else’s views or comments. There’s additional to this. For any relationship, there’s lots of layers and it’s not my job to share specifics. There’s no way to know anything except the information I’m giving you now.”

Following her breakup from Yrigoyen in the year 2020, Kufrin sparked romance speculation with Horstmann who was third-placed contestant during the Bachelorette season. The couple’s closeness caused some viewers to believe that the two were not acquaintances.
After Kufrin, the Colorado native suggested in the month of August that she and B the Label designer were “talking” before she joined season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise, Kufrin has clarified their relationship. “Blake as well as I’ve always been good friends. We’ve always been supportive of each other,” she said on an episode in August on”Click Bait,” a “Click Bait” podcast. “In terms of the ‘talking,’ yeah, we’ve been in touch very sporadically, but nothing that I would say would warrant … a potential relationship.”
Horstmann reacts to Kufrin’s comments in the next month’s “Behind the Rose” podcast. “Listen, I was hurt by the podcast,” Horstmann said in his explanation. “Like you mentioned it’s not a secret that we had been in a relationship prior to that. It wasn’t something secret. Like there was no secret any way. But, more than anything I was hurt by it.”
