Chris Harrison says that Bachelorette Becca empathizes with Arie post his breakup
Arie Luyendyk Jr. is remembered for the way he brutally ended his relationship with Becca Kufrin in Season 22 of the Bachelor.
He dumped Becca in order to take things forward with runner-up Lauren Burnham. Becca Kufrin was given the title of the newest Bachelorette and has many handsome suitors for her to choose from.
As reported by ET, host Chris Harrison shared how Becca being in Arie's position could have given her a new perspective on the breakup.
"I think she definitely sympathizes with Arie now. I don't know if she's going to go down the same road as Arie, but I think she understands now how that can happen."
During Arie's season of the Bachelor, the 36-year-old had narrowed down his choices to Kufrin and Burnham and had told both the women that he loved them.
During the finale episode, he sent Burnham home in tears after choosing to propose to Becca Kufrin which she accepted.
Within a couple of weeks, Luyendyk Jr. seemed to have a change of heart and decided to call off his engagement, telling Becca that he had made the wrong choice and he wanted to see where things went to Lauren, leaving his ex-fiancee and fans absolutely stunned and heartbroken.
After the filming of the final episode, he managed to reconnect with Burnham and ended up proposing to her during the live show. During the same show, Kufrin was given the title of the new Bachelorette and was also introduced to some of the men who would be competing for her heart.
Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette is all set to premiere next month and Harrison shared that he was excited for the viewers to get to know her better.
"I can't wait for people to actually see her and get to know her as well as we do. Everything you think of her, add about 10 times to that about how awesome she is. We love her… she's an awesome Bachelorette," he shared.
