Inside Becca Kufrin's Surprising Return To The Bachelor Franchise

Becca Kufrin is one of Bachelor Nation's most infamous stars. As fans of the franchise will already know, she first appeared on season 22 of "The Bachelor" in 2018 where she actually won Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s heart and he proposed to her — only, he then dumped her for Lauren Burnham before the season even finished airing on ABC. Ouch.

But Becca didn't give up looking for love on reality TV. She then went on to appear on the franchise again as The Bachelorette on Season 14 of the ABC dating show later that year. Becca appeared to find love with Garrett Yrigoyen after sifting through the roster of single guys and the two ended up engaged during the season finale. But, sadly, that one didn't work out either. Becca confirmed she and Garrett gone their separate ways while speaking with her fellow former Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay on their "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast in September 2020, admitting she didn't think the news would "come as a shock to anyone."

Well, let's hope third time's the charm, as she's now back for more. Read on for what you need to know about Becca Kufrin's third shot at love on reality TV and her dramatic entrance.

Becca Kufrin is a fashionably late addition to 'Bachelor In Paradise'

Becca Kufrin is back! And this time she's in paradise. People confirmed that Becca has officially joined the cast of Season 7 of "Bachelor In Paradise" where she'll be looking for love alongside one of the men from her season of "The Bachelorette." The drama!

Becca is a late addition to the show, as she wasn't announced with the main cast when ABC revealed who would be taking part in the season. It's thought she'll make a dramatic entrance in Mexico too, as she won't appear in the first episode airing on August 16 and will instead join the show a little later on in the season.

In a sneak peek dropped by ABC on August 9, Becca can be seen seemingly getting cozy with Season 17 "The Bachelorette" star, Thomas Jacobs. The two appeared to be on a date and Becca looked pretty happy as she admitted she "can't stop smiling." It's not clear how things will go down with Joe Amabile, who appeared on Becca's season, though he seemed to be pretty taken by Serena Pitt, who appeared on Matt James' season of "The Bachelor."

"Bachelor In Paradise" Season 7 is the first not hosted by Chris Harrison after he officially stepped back from the franchise in June. Instead, the series will feature a roster of special guest hosts, including David Spade.
