Met On: The Bachelorette, Season 14

Current Status: Split

After Becca Kufrin was dumped on-camera and devastated by Arie Luyendyk Jr. after his The Bachelor proposal on Season 22, Becca went on to star on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season in 2018.

Becca fell in love with two men, Garrett Yrigoyen and Blake Horstmann, but she selected Garrett at the Final Rose Ceremony filmed in the Maldives, and he in turn proposed marriage.

Following the August 2018 finale, Becca and Garrett appeared to be madly in love and they began enjoying traveling together and spending time with their friends.

Although they had a tough time deciding where to live together, Becca, who was originally from Minneapolis, MN, and Garrett, who had been living in Reno, NV, chose to start fresh and move to San Diego, CA, together.

Living together was an adjustment, according to Becca, but something the couple seemed to have managed.

However, in June 2020 Becca admitted her future with Garrett was suddenly uncertain given they have dramatically differing views on political and social issues.

Garrett posted a thin blue line showing solidarity with police forces on his Instagram account on June 4, sparking criticism that he was not supportive of the nationwide protests triggered by the killing of George Floyd and the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

Becca made it known on the June 9 episode of her Bachelor Happy Hour podcast she co-hosts with The Bachelorette Season 13 star Rachel Lindsay that she did not "align" or "agree with" Garrett's social-media post -- and their differences were having a negative impact on their relationship.

On the June 16 episode of Becca and Rachel's podcast, Becca also shared an additional update and said, "I want to say to our listeners out there -- because I'm sure many will hear this back and wonder and ask and have opinions -- for those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is I don't know."

"I can't give anything more than that. It's something that we are trying to work through and discuss and do work on at home at this time and that's where the work will remain and that's really the best I can give you at this point."

The June 2020 incident was not the first time Garrett's social-media postings have negatively impacted his relationship with Becca.

Garrett came under fire in 2018 as Becca's The Bachelorette season was airing on ABC for his taste in sexist, homophobic and politically-extreme Instagram memes involving undocumented immigrants and Parkland shooting survivors. 

In late May 2018, Garrett issued a public apology, saying he never knew "the power" behind "a mindless double tap on Instagram," referring to how he had liked offensive and insensitive content.

Becca -- who wasn't aware of Garrett's social-media behavior while her The Bachelorette season was filming -- also tried to defend Garrett when news his behavior surfaced while the season was airing.

"I did things in the past that I'm sure wasn't the best thing, but I just want people to stay open-minded to everyone," she told Entertainment Tonight at the time.

"I can't fault on anyone for what they believe and who's to say that anyone is truly what they believe in if they just double tap," Becca continued.

"I can't speak to that because that's just not me. I am a strong woman and I do believe in certain things, but again, that's what's so great about our country -- everyone is entitled to their own opinions."

In early August 2020, E! News reported Becca and Garrett have broken up, however neither Becca or Garrett immediately confirmed the split.

Several weeks later, Becca finally confirmed the couple had called off their engagement and split.

"I [want] to address what's been going on with me and my relationship over these past couple of months. Although this is very difficult and a quite personal matter for me, I do truly value and care for all of our listeners and the questions and concerns you've had these past few weeks. So I just want to share with you directly what I've been going through," Becca said on the September 1 episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast she co-hosts with former The Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay.

"I want to preface this by saying I am sitting in my apartment alone, recording this by myself. I didn't think it was fitting to bring anyone else into this conversation when my relationship was only made up of two people, which was obviously myself and Garrett."

She continued, "I know there has been so much speculation and curiosity out there regarding where he and I stand. I've seen countless headlines and stories ran by news outlets and countless Instagram posts confirming something that, to be honest, I don't think was anyone else's place or right to do."

"No one has any right to confirm this unless it comes directly from the source and from the horse's mouth, which is, in this moment, me."

Becca's voice then changed and it sounded like she was starting to cry.

"So I don't think it's going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement," Becca shared.

"If you followed us on Instagram for the past couple months, you'll have noticed I spent a lot of time in Minnesota. I was with family and close friends, and he was out on the West Coast doing the same. We were really just trying to take the time and gain some clarity as to what was the next best step in our lives, whether that was together or as individuals."

Becca said she and Garrett had slowly arrived at the decision to break up "after many conversations."

"It wasn't something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn't based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else's opinions or comments. There's much more to it," Becca explained.

In November 2020, Garrett went public with his new girlfriend Alex Farrar.

And the following year, Becca appeared on the 2021 season of Bachelor in Paradise -- where she met her current fiance, Thomas Jacobs.
