Bekah is a 22-year-old nanny from Fresno, CA, who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. She pulled up to the Los Angeles mansion on Night 1 in a cherry red 1968 Mustang and introduced herself to Arie when Season 22 debuted on January 1.
Bekah stood out in Arie's mind not only because of her grand entrance, but because she is beautiful, smart and rocked a pixie haircut -- much unlike the rest of her competition.
Her apparent strong interpersonal skills also made Arie nervous and lose his train of thought. When Becca put the Bachelor on the spot and asked him to name three things that excite him during the premiere, Arie responded, "Excitement... and pizza too."
Bekah did not receive the First Impression Rose, but she did earn herself a rose at the season's first official Rose Ceremony.
