Becca was heartbroken after Bachelor Arie dumped her. Now she's starring on The Bachelorette.

Who does Becca choose on The Bachelorette? Before we answer that, let's back up a bit. It was a TV moment unlike any other. Becca Kufrin was a contestant on The Bachelor and fell hard for Arie Luyendyk Jr. The two ended the season engaged and apparently happy. But several weeks later Arie threw a bombshell into their bliss. On camera, he told Becca that he still had feelings for one of the other contestants, Lauren Burnham.

Fans were stunned to see the break-up unfold and reactions to the episode were angry, with former contestants even calling out the decision to air it. 

Arie ended up engaged to Lauren but Becca had to start over in her quest to find love. Where is she now and is she a bride to be? Read on to find out.

1. The break up.

Becca was floored when Arie told her they were not going to be getting married. She told People that she wished he had handled it differently. “It was embarrassing the way he broke up with me with the full cameras and crew around. There was a better and more tactful way to do it,” she added.

“A breakup is hard enough, and to have it all filmed and have to re-watch it and know that people all across the country are watching you get your heart broken, it is embarrassing. It’s not fun. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It was like a slap in the face.”

2. Arie explains.

Arie tried to defend his choice at the time, saying that filming the break-up would mean that Becca could be the Bachelorette and have a second chance at reality show love. He also hoped to make it clear that he was the bad guy, saying “I think for me, I really wanted everyone to know that this was on me, this was my fault. I felt like filming that would let people know that. That, if there were any questions on the breakup, those would be squashed if they saw the breakup. I hope I gave her a little bit of closure.”

3. Moving on.

Becca says she went through the normal emotions related to a break-up and part of her was scared to try again. But she agreed to star in The Bachelorette in the hopes of finding lasting love. "It does scare me. I’m sure it would [scare] any human, knowing that I was just engaged, I was in love. But I have so much love to give and I want just a partner in life. I’m not afraid to date these guys and find the one who is the best fit for me — I welcome that with open arms.”

4. The new season.

Filming has recently wrapped on the new season of the reality show. Becca had a full slate of suitors to choose from, with 28 different men vying for her affections. 

Kufrin told People that she did find true love during filming and she's delighted to announce that she's once again engaged. She told People, “It was the happiest moment of my life. And it feels so good to say it. I still pinch myself, like, did that all just happen? It’s been a whirlwind.”

6. Who's the frontrunner?

There are rumors flying the frontrunnerr for Becca's affections is Garrett Yrigoyen, a surgical technology consultant from Reno, NV. The former baseball player is said to have gotten the "first impression rose, which is a sign of good things to come. The last three Bachelorettes have all chosen their first impression recipient at the end of the show.

7. Second choice again?

After being forced into the runner up position on The Bachelor, would Becca be willing to be someone's second chance? We may find out on this season. Garrett Yrigoyen is definitely divorced so Becca will be wife #2 if he's her fiance. He was married for less than a year in 2015, splitting from his wife in 2016.

All the romance and drama will be revelaed soon. The new season premiers on May 28 on ABC.
