'Bachelor in Paradise' spoilers: Are Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs still together? Did the 'Bachelor in Paradise' couple get engaged? (SPOILERS)
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/21/2021
Bachelor in Paradise's seventh season has shown Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs' relationship taking off, so did they continue dating in Mexico or did they split up and leave single? Did Becca and Thomas go all the way to the Final Rose Ceremony and get engaged -- and, if so, do spoilers reveal the couple is still together now?
Becca, 31, initially appeared on Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor, which wrapped in early 2018. Becca went on to star on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season and get engaged to winner Garrett Yrigoyen.
Becca announced her split from Garrett in early September 2020.
Thomas, 29, just competed for Katie Thurston's heart on The Bachelorette's seventeenth season and was dumped for allegedly being on the show for the wrong reasons. At one point, he confessed to thinking about possibly becoming the next The Bachelor star for Season 26.
Katie was concerned that Thomas had been using her as a stepping stone to boost his career and fame.
Katie even called Thomas "a liar" as well as "selfish" and "unkind" when she eliminated him at a Rose Ceremony. (Thomas later apologized for his insulting behavior on The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All.)
In late June, Katie said on "The Viall Files" podcast hosted by Season 21 The Bachelor star Nick Viall, "I am nervous for any woman who interacts with Thomas, honestly. He's a smooth talker. I wouldn't be surprised if he recycles some lines with me on some of these women... Good luck to them."
"If he's on Paradise, I don't care who he's with, I'm going to be like, 'Watch out, girl!'" Katie said, adding that she wasn't "open" to "changing [her] mind" about the bachelor either.
Once Becca and Thomas left for their date, their co-stars questioned Thomas' intentions. Thomas was accused of finding "the perfect victim" given Becca is so famous, and Demi Burnett wondered if Thomas was being genuine or just putting on a show.
Despite drama Thomas had been involved in, Becca expressed to the cameras how she wasn't going to hold Thomas' edit on Katie's The Bachelorette season against him.
"I have been blindsided in the past, but I said that I was going to come in here open-minded and with no expectations or any pre-conceived notions. So I'm going to give him a chance," Becca noted.
Becca explained to Thomas on their dinner date how she had been engaged before and thought she was going to marry Garrett and have children with him, and so when things ended, she put walls back up.
"I'm scared to be doing this," Becca confessed to Thomas.
Thomas said it was okay to be afraid but he'd never want to leave "what if" on the table. Thomas shared how he also felt trepidation to join the Paradise cast but felt really good by Becca's side, and she gushed about how she was "smitten" and couldn't stop smiling.
Thomas and Becca then danced and laughed to the sounds of a mariachi band, and Becca was ultimately glad she had traveled to Mexico to find love again.
"I'm starting to feel tonight what I think Paradise should be," Becca said.
Later on, Thomas let Tammy down gently that he was more interested in pursuing a future with Becca.
"I had feelings for someone else last night and I didn't feel guilty about it," Thomas confessed to Tammy.
Aaron called it "karma" for Tammy since she had previously dumped him for Thomas, and then Tammy was shown fighting for Thomas and trying to convince him to choose her.
Thomas said he wasn't sure if he and Tammy could have a serious and lasting relationship in the real world, and he admitted to feeling more stability with Becca.
Tammy started to cry and said she had risked a lot for Thomas only to get hurt and "feel like a fool." Thomas assured Tammy that she's amazing, sweet, capable and worthy, but she didn't want to hear it.
"Everyone [warned] me but I believed you!" Tammy shouted, before walking away and bawling her eyes out.
Thomas then found Becca and made out with her, and he ended up giving Becca his rose at the season's third Rose Ceremony.
"If I knew it was going to end up like this, I would not have chosen Thomas over Aaron... I'm so angry at myself. I feel so betrayed, I feel so stupid," Tammy lamented. "I feel like an idiot. I came here to find a deeper connection than ever before, and I did, but it was all a lie."
Becca reportedly dated Thomas in Paradise during most of her time in Mexico.
But Becca and Thomas broke up before the overnight Fantasy Suite dates and they both left the show single, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
But spoiler sleuths on @bachelorettewindmill recently noticed that Thomas and Becca seemed to be hanging out in the same kitchen earlier this summer.
And Carbone reported in late August Becca and Thomas reunited in the real world and are currently dating!
"Becca and Thomas break up before the finale and leave the show separately. There's been rumors floating around given the amount of DM's and emails I've gotten on it, and yes, those rumors are true," Carbone wrote in an August 31 blog post.
"Becca and Thomas have gotten back together post filming and are dating."
While many Bachelor in Paradise viewers are concerned about the seemingly sweet and good-hearted Becca dating Thomas, Becca appears to have total confidence in her love interest.
Becca recently posted a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram of Thomas rubbing her feet in Paradise, and she captioned the image, "This little piggy went to the beach."
Thomas commented on the picture, "Little do people know, you're actually smiling at the floor to ceiling stack of Doritos behind me."
One of Becca's followers commented, "This guy has 'red flags' written all over him."
But Becca clapped back and wrote on September 8, "Red is my favorite color."
Katie Thurston even showed that she is supportive of Becca and Thomas' romance when she commented on Becca's social-media picture of the couple, "Obsessed with this. [Sunglasses emoticon]. look how you look at him!"
