It's that time of year, Bachelor fans! Though we're still a little less than a month away from the premiere of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season, thanks to Reality Steve, we have details on this year's winner — given that the finale was filmed last month. Want to know more? Scroll down for your 2018 spoilers (or, if you'd rather just be privy to which lucky ladies get a hometown date, you can check out an overview of the final four here!)
Who does Arie pick on The Bachelor?
Arie is engaged to Becca Kufrin, a 27-year-old senior account executive at technology PR firm Skyaa, who also gets the first one-on-one date of the season! The Minneapolis, MN, recently returned to Instagram on Thanksgiving after a two-month hiatus. "Nothing like a strong bond over the love for gravy. #twinning," she captioned a pic with her dog.
According to her LinkedIn, Becca graduated from Minnesota St. University, Mankato in 2012 with a degree in Mass Communications. Reality Steve states that her father died about eight years ago and that her mother is currently in remission for breast cancer.
As for Arie's runner-up, 25-year-old Lauren Burnham gets the boot right before he proposes in Cusco, Peru. Like Becca, she recently returned to social media, updating her profile pic on Facebook. According to her LinkedIn, the blonde beauty works as a business solutions sales executive for phone company Vonage. She graduated from Old Dominion University in 2015 with a Bachelors in Psychology.
Rounding out the top four are 26-year-old Kendall Long, who Reality Steve says makes it to the final three without ever having a one-on-one date (until hometowns, that is). And 26-year-old Tia Booth gets kicked to the curb after introducing Arie to her family in Jonesboro, AR. (Fun fact: Tia is good friends with Nick Viall's runner-up, Raven Gates.) We wonder which of these women will end up being our next Bachelorette!
