‘The Bachelorette’ Season 14: Everything We Know About Becca Kufrin
Season 22 of The Bachelor ended on a crazy note with Arie Luyendyk Jr. leaving the woman he proposed to, Becca Kufrin, for the runner-up. But the good news is that Kufrin gets the opportunity to find love on Season 14 of The Bachelorette.
We learned a little bit about the Minnesota native throughout the season from her tattoos to being a fan of Sister Act 2. But here are seven more things to know about Becca Kufrin.
1. She has pledged donations sent to her to go to Stand Up to Cancer
After Arie Luyendyk Jr. brutally broke their engagement in front of cameras, fans tried to show their support for Kufrin. So they donated money to her through Venmo and by the time of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, there was $6,000 in donations for her to mend her broken heart with food and drink.
“I don’t even know what to think,” she said on the show. “I love my wine don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think I can drink that much. I don’t know.”
So instead she has decided to give the money to Stand Up to Cancer. Kufrin’s own father died of brain cancer when she was 19 years old. After the announcement, Kate Couric tweeted, “PS I’m matching Becca’s donation too! If you want to help us make more cancer patients cancer survivors, please go to http://StanduptoCancer.org Thank you again Becca and thank you all! @BachelorABC @thebkoof”

2. She has forgiven Luyendyk Jr. for breaking their engagement
Kufrin has opened up about her feelings toward Luyendyk Jr. since their televised breakup. It seems like she has moved on by forgiving him.
He’s a good person, I don’t think he’s a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way. But it’s just the result of his actions. At the end of the day, I don’t think he thought through everything of how ending things with Lauren would be, how being engaged to me would be and what breaking up with me and going back to her would be. I don’t think he thought it through, but I don’t think he did it maliciously to break my heart.

3. Her engagement ring did not go to Clare Crawley
Bachelor Nation pays close attention to detail and noticed that Clare Crawley from Bachelor Winter Games’ engagement ring looked very similar to Kufrin’s engagement ring. So similar that there was a running theory that Crawley got the ring after Kufrin gave it back.
This isn’t true according to Neil Lane, the jeweler who provides the rings to the show. “Both are handmade, and although similar in design, they are not the same ring,” he told People. “On first glance they do look similar.”
