The new Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin

A finalist on the latest season of The Bachelor, Becca won over Arie Luyendyk Jr’s heart, only to be publicly humiliated in the show’s final moments.

But Becca’s back on the reality TV bandwagon, this time looking for love as the newest Bachelorette

She already won hearts with her laidback attitude and girl-next-door smile, so we’re hopeful that she’ll find her Prince Charming in this year’s line-up of eligible bachelors. 

Here’s what we know about Becca so far:  

1. Her catch phrase is “let’s do the damn thing.”

An appropriate representation of her journey and her personality. 

2. She’s totally over Arie.

Insiders reveal that Becca falls in love with not one but TWO men in her upcoming season. Let’s hope she’s more decisive than he was when it comes to the finale (although she did say she has more sympathy now for what he went through). Whether she shares the extent of her feelings with both men is unknown. 

3. She’s into football players.

One of Becca’s exes coaches the football team at Stanford University, and her celebrity crush is Michael Strahan who plays for the New York Giants. 

4. She also loves country music.

It cheers her up and helped her through the trainwreck grieving period that was her last Bachelor experience. 

5. She’s 28 years old.

Not that that’s important. 

6. She has a Bachelor of Science.

Becca completed her degree at Minnesota State University in 2012. Prior to her TV career she was working for a technology public relations agency.   

7. She has a criminal past.

In 2009, Becca was busted for “underage consumption.” She plead guilty and was stung with a $450 fine. 

8. She lost her dad when she was 19.

A pivotal point in her life, Becca says her father’s passing makes her look at life through a different lens, and appreciate every single day. 

9. She loves to host dinner parties.

Maybe we’ll see her on MKR next. 

10. She’s already engaged. 

That’s right! Filming for The Bachelorette finished up last month, and the yet-to-be-revealed winner reportedly already put a ring on it. Becca told People magazine it was the happiest moment of her life, “I still pinch myself, like, did that all just happen?”

We're excited to see how it all unfolds!

Becca's season of The Bachelorette premieres Tuesday 29 May, same day as the U.S. on TVNZ OnDemand
