Becca Kufrin starred on Arie Luyendyk’s incredible season of The Bachelor and then she became The Bachelorette herself in 2018. Though she’s been through her fair share of ups and downs on reality TV, it finally seems like Kufrin’s in a good place.
From losing somebody very important to her political beliefs, here are five fast facts you need to know about the former star of The Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin.
In the Beginning
Kufrin was born in Benson, Minnesota, but she was raised in Prior Lake, Minnesota. She spent her entire adolescence in Minnesota and even attended Minnesota State University, Mankato, which is where she received her degree in Mass Communications.

While on Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor, Kufrin got engaged. She and Luyendyk seemed happy, but he decided to call off their engagement in order to pursue a relationship with his runner-up, Lauren Burnham.
