Becca Kufrin Defends Garrett Yrigoyen After He Didn’t Appear on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ with Her

Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen got engaged at the end of her season of The Bachelorette. They are still together, but only Kufrin appeared on Bachelor in Paradise for Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson’s wedding. Find out why Yrigoyen didn’t go and why Kufrin is defending their relationship.

Fans think Becca Kufrin dodged a bullet with Blake Horstmann

Blake Horstmann entered Bachelor Nation by being on Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. He was the runner-up and Kufrin chose Yrigoyen over him.

Horstmann has caused a stir on this new season of Bachelor in Paradise. That’s because he hooked up with multiple cast members before the season started.

It was revealed he slept with Kristina Schulman, then spent the next night with Caelynn Miller-Keyes. When Horstmann got flack for it he released alleged text messages between him and Miller-Keyes.

The whole situation led to fans commenting on Kufrin’s recent posts. The former reality star posted a picture drinking something by a pool with the caption, “Catching up on that Paradise drama whilst in paradise.”

One fan commented, “I have been watching and all I have to say is I am so glad you picked @gy_yrigoyen and not Blake!” Another wrote, “You seriously dodged a bullet!”

She attended Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson’s Wedding

The season 22 star appeared on Bachelor in Paradise to attend Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson’s wedding. Many noticed Yrigoyen wasn’t there with her.

She talked about fans reacting to his absence in a video. “So many people have been DMing me about why Garrett wasn’t with me at the wedding. Blah, blah, blah,” the former reality star said according to Us Weekly. “It’s actually kind of annoying me because we still are individuals and we still sometimes like to do our own thing.”

She said that she was fine and got to “catch up with people like Tia [Booth] and Kendall [Long] and Chris and Krystal and Bibiana [Julian] and all of the lovely people who I haven’t seen in a while.”

Kufrin noted, “It’s okay to do your own thing in a relationship sometimes.” She added, “Sorry, guys. You know we can’t do everything together, as much as I want to. But he’s also not with me this weekend because he’s at home with the fur baby because he’s on dad dog duty. ”

Some fans went straight to Kufrin’s messages to tell her what they think about Yrigoyen not going to the wedding. One touched a nerve because Kufrin publicly responded to it, according to People.

One person wrote, “He don’t really like you or he would be with you. I’m married 36 years and we do it as a team. You need to find a man that stays by your side with special events. You look lonely. Good luck.”

Yrigoyen posted a screenshot of it in her story. She circled “don’t” and added “doesn’t.” She also wrote, “Don’t be such a Sharon, Sharon” referring to the writer’s Instagram name.

It looks like the couple is still together, but happy to do things separately. They reportedly are still holding off on planning their wedding.
