Both Becca and Kendall first appeared in The Bachelor Season 22 with Arie Luyendyk Jr. But both reality stars had completely different experiences with the franchise.

In The Bachelor finale, Arie picked Becca, and the couple got engaged. However, Arie broke up with Becca to be with his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. Then Becca moved on to The Bachelorette Season 14, and she got engaged to her final pick, Garrett Yrigoyen. But Becca and Garrett ended their engagement in 2020.

Meanwhile, Kendall was sent home in week 9 of The Bachelor. Then she went on Bachelor in Paradise Season 5, where she met Joe. Kendall and Joe got together after the show, but they split in early 2020.
