Season 14 of The Bachelorette premiered this week with Becca Kufrin looking for love after Arie Luyendyk broke her heart on the last season of The Bachelor, and the final rose spoilers are already all over the internet. It happens every season, but this time things are a bit different. Did Kufrin ruin this season all by herself?
Life & Style reports that the first impression rose is a franchise tradition, and in the premiere, Kufrin gave it to Garrett Yrigoyen. And, if you know anything about past seasons, that means he has a good chance of winning the whole thing. The Bachelorette gives the first impression rose to the contestant who stands out the most, and in the past three seasons, the guy who got the first impression rose also got the final one.
Welp I meant to post this earlier but I was on a flight and just bad at this whole social media thing. BUT – Before you all join me in watching the beginning of my love story tonight, I want to take a second to give thanks. Thank you to everyone for all of the love, support and kind words that I’ve received over the past year. It fills my heart in places that I didn’t even know existed. I also want to ask that you keep an open heart in watching this all unfold. 28 guys came on this journey with me from all across the country and laid their hearts on the line for a chance at love. There are many different personalities, interests and perspectives, but every man deserves to feel the same support and openness that I’ve received over the past few months. It’s not an easy thing to do, to give up your life and put everything on display, especially in this social climate. But these men were brave enough to do that with me, and that’s something truly special. To the 28 of you who went through this crazy journey with me – thank you. You all added to my story in some way. You taught me about yourselves and even about myself along the way. I think it’s safe to say (one last time) that we did the damn thing together. I also want to thank the entire production team and crew. Each and every one of you is driven and kind, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of your hard work. It doesn’t go unnoticed, so thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks for reading this novel, I vow to never write this long of a post again. NOW LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED! ?
And, those relationships are still going strong. Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is still with Shawn Booth, season 12 Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are still flaunting their love on Instagram, and season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay is still in love with Bryan Abasolo.
But, it’s not just the fact that Kufrin gave Garrett the first impression rose that is leading people to believe that the two are now engaged. She dropped a hint on social media by coming to his defense after he deleted his Instagram account when people realized he followed pages filled with anti-immigrant and anti-transphobic memes. Kufrin told fans that they need to be open-minded.
“I want viewers to be open to everyone, and I want them to go through this season with me and watch my love story unfold with all these men…because that’s how I went into this journey,” Kufrin said. “I can’t fault anyone for what they believe and who’s to say that anyone is truly what they believe in if they just double tap.”
In addition to Kufrin’s behavior, Reality Steve and TMZ have been on top of things when it comes to which guy makes it to the end.
Steve reveals that the final four this season are 29-year-old Jason Tartick from Buffalo, New York, 28-year-old Blake Horstmann, a Coors sales rep from Denver, 26-year-old Colton Underwood, an NFL free agent from Aurora, Colorado, and (surprise) Garrett Yrigoyen, a surgical technology consultant from Manteca, California.

Kufrin then narrowed things down between Yrigoyen and Horstmann, with Yrigoyen being the man who won Kufrin’s heart. And, we know this because TMZ published photos from the final rose ceremony in the Maldives.
Reality Steve declined to purchase the pics, but TMZ couldn’t pass them up. So now, we have proof that Kufrin and Yrigoyen are engaged, and the question is how ABC will react now that we all know how the show ends just a few hours into the season.
