The Bachelorette is back — and she’s already confirmed that yes, she found “The One” while filming.
“It felt so great to say yes to this position, and I was excited to finally really find love,” The Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin, told The Hollywood Reporter of signing on to the show. “I thought that it worked last time and that it would work again.”
Kufrin was engaged to the previous star of The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr., but he cruelly broke off the engagement on camera — an act that earned him harsh (and understandable) criticism from fans of the hit ABC show.
But Kufrin handled the breakup in a classy way, telling THR that she was “hopeful” this time around, especially because the pool of suitors is so big. She didn’t go into it expecting an engagement, though.
“I was very upfront the entire time about if it’s not 1,000 percent right, I don’t want any party involved to feel pressure to get down on one knee and give a ring,” she said. “And if it led to that, I would have been fine with that.”
When does season 14 of The Bachelorette start?
Kufrin’s turn on The Bachelorette starts with a two-hour special on Monday, May 28 — Memorial Day — at 8 p.m. EST/7 p.m. CST.
The show will again be on ABC and hosted by Chris Harrison.
How many men are competing on The Bachelorette?
There will be 28 different men competing for Becca Kufrin’s heart on The Bachelorette. They range in age from mid-20s to mid-30s with eclectic backgrounds in professional sports and construction. There’s even one guy who’s a self-described “colognoisseur,” a couple of contestants with long, luscious locks and one guy that, according to press photos, showed up wearing a chicken costume.

Does Becca Kufrin get engaged on The Bachelorette?
So, does she find love? Yes — and she revealed she’s already engaged, though she (obviously) didn’t spoil the show.
“I did develop really strong feelings for a couple of them, and I did fall for two guys at the end, yes,” she told CNN.
“I wanted to share my excitement. It’s big news. It was something that I felt was important to share because people have been with me on the journey for so long from start to finish,” she added to THR.
However, there are no immediate marriage plans yet.
“We’re living in the moment,” she added. “We’re really excited for the premiere and to start this entire journey and watch it all play back at this point.”
