Who are the final four on The Bachelor?
According to Reality Steve, the four girls who get hometown dates are 26-year-old Tia Booth from Little Rock, AK, 27-year-old Rebecca "Becca" Kufrin from Minneapolis, MN, 25-year-old Lauren Burnham from Dallas, TX (though she takes Arie to Virginia Beach), and 26-year-old Kendall Long from LA.
In a post to a Bachelor spoilers Reddit thread last month, an anonymous fan wrote, "Even though the production is still shooting home dates, as spoiled by Reality Steve, there seems to be a consensus between the producers and the contestants that Rebecca Kufrin is going to be Arie’s final rose. Apparently, she’s been a clear favorite for some time, and if he chooses anyone but her, it would be pretty shocking. Can’t cite my source, in order to protect their job. Take this information for what it is. Believe it or not, but you’ve heard it here first."
Most fans seemed pleased by the revelation, and one user even stated that the chemistry between Becca and Arie during a group date in LA last month was obvious. "I was observing their body language throughout the group date, and they both seemed really into each other," the user wrote. On that note...
Who wins The Bachelor 2018?
Arie Luyendyk Jr. is engaged to Becca Kufrin. Since ABC has yet to officially announce the Season 22 cast, little is known about Becca at this point, but according to her LinkedIn, the Minneapolis native works as a senior account executive at Skyya, a technology PR firm. She graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2012 with a B.S. in Mass Communications. Her mother is a breast cancer survivor, who's currently in remission, and her father passed away about eight years ago. She returned to Instagram on Thanksgiving after a two-month hiatus. We can't wait to watch the duo's love story unfold!
