'The Bachelor' bachelorette Becca Kufrin's ex-boyfriend revealed by ABC as season's surprise ex-boyfriend

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/23/2018 

The Bachelor previews have spent all season teasing a bachelorette's ex-boyfriend crashing the show's production determined to win his girl back, and ABC has now revealed the man is Becca Kufrin's ex.

Previews have teased for weeks that one girl's ex-boyfriend shows up on The Bachelor this season, demanding a chance to reconcile with her.

And Good Morning America released a new clip on Friday for the upcoming February 26 episode announcing the crasher is the former boyfriend of Becca, a 27-year-old publicist from Minneapolis, MN.

In addition, the clip also showed him meeting one-on-one with Arie Luyendyk Jr. and telling The Bachelor star of his intentions.

"She's the love of my life. I want to marry her. I'm going to go get her," the handsome man tells Arie during a face-to-face conversation.

While Arie is dressed casually in a T-shirt and jean during the meeting, Becca's ex is wearing proposal-worthy a dress shirt and suit.

"If Becca were to leave, I would just be crushed," Arie notes.

The clip also shows Arie admitting, "I've had my heart ripped open, and I don't know how this is going to end."

While ABC's clip didn't identify him by name, the ex-boyfriend who crashes The Bachelor set is Ross Jirgl, according to prior spoiler reports.

As fans recall, Becca said she was in an on-again, off-again relationship with her former love for seven years.

It's unclear how long before Becca appeared on The Bachelor that she split once and for all from Ross, who currently works as a sports performance coach for the Stanford University football team.

Becca told Arie that she struggled to leave her tumultuous romance in the past because he had helped her through the difficult days of her beloved father's passing from a brain tumor when she was 19 years old. Becca, however, insisted to Arie she was over that guy and ready to move forward with her life.

Ross will appear on The Bachelor during the season's final days in Peru, just before the final Rose Ceremony.

Ross will approach Becca about getting back together, and according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, he will propose marriage to the bachelorette!

However, Becca will allegedly reject Ross' proposal and choose stay on The Bachelor path. She picks a chance with Arie over marriage with her ex.

Becca and Ross reportedly met in college when Ross played football for the Division II football team at Minnesota State University, which they both attended. Ross graduated from the university in 2013 with a degree in biomedical science.


Becca graduated from Minnesota State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Mass Communications. Before appearing on The Bachelor, she worked as a senior account executive at Skyaa, a technology PR firm.

Ross arrived at Stanford after one season at South Alabama, where he worked with the men's basketball team.

And before South Alabama, Ross held down positions in strength and conditioning for the men's basketball teams at Wisconsin-Green Bay and Indiana State.
