Who Is the Next 'Bachelorette'?

Just one day after we learned, on the finale of The Bachelor, that Becca Kufrin was ruthlessly dumped by Arie Luyendyk Jr., we learn that Becca has been chosen to be the next star of The Bachelorette. If we were more cynical, we might think that that whole scenario was staged to set Becca up as a popular heroine for the franchise.

Via Us Weekly.

Becca Kufrin is ready to put Arie Luyendyk Jr. in her rearview mirror! Kufrin, 27, will be the next bachelorette, Chris Harrison announced on the Tuesday, March 6, episode of After the Final Rose.

The race-car driver proposed to Kufrin during the Monday, March 5, finale of The Bachelor. However, only a few weeks into their relationship, he broke it off to rekindle things with runner-up Lauren Burnham. He got engaged to Lauren just moments before Becca was announced as the bachelorette.

Becca’s new journey began right on that stage when Chris brought out four different men, including one who played the banjo and had written a song for her while another apologized for his gender! Then the fifth, a man named Blake, brought up a horse with him. “As the saying goes, ‘When you fall off the horse, you’ve got to get back up again,'” he said, before helping her onto the horse.

Becca is “very excited” to become The Bachelorette, but it did “take her a little time to make the decision,” an insider told Us. “She got her heart broken by Arie and was really hurt,” a source explains. However, her feelings for Arie were not the reason she was hesitant.
