'Bachelorette' defends fiancé in first public appearance since Instagram controversy

Irene MckinneyAug 07, 2018

Garrett Yrigoyen, the newly-crowned victor of The Bachelorette, said Monday that he "didn't mean to offend anyone" after it was discovered shortly after the show's premiere this summer that the he had previously liked a series of highly inflammatory Instagram posts.

"It's gut wrenching", Chris told ET ahead of the three-hour finale event on Monday, August 6. "I got to see who he is, his heart and his soul", she said. "I have his back.' Because I can't give away the ending". "So when you make that decision, I'm willing to be absolutely crushed at the end of this, even if it isn't me, just as long as you're happy". "You've made me know that I can fall in love again".

Kufrin accepted his proposal without hesitation, jokingly noting that this is the last time she would do this.

"The Instagram situation, I don't condone that and he stands by his apology", she added.

He apologized in a statement on Instagram, writing "I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my "likes" on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive", Garrett wrote on his new Instagram, after deleting his former account. He later apologized, writing he's "taking steps to grow, become more educated, and be a better version of myself". "He is everything I could ever want". Then Garrett proposes, Becca says yes, and they are engaged.

Why the Maldives? Because, as Becca explains, it's the flawless place to finally tell one of the men that she loves them (also, money). "There's just one piece with somebody else that I am not ready to say goodbye to yet".

"I think my jaw hit the sand". Harrison had talked up the breakup to the point where I thought we were going to see Blake hurl himself into the ocean or something, saying that "what you're about to see no words can describe". Horstmann told Kufrin's sister, Emily, that he couldn't imagine his life without the Bachelorette with him.

"It was affecting her, and that was hurting me the most". "I know he stands by his apology, and he feels so bad for everyone that he did offend. You were not wrong". As Harrison made a point of mentioning, Kufrin's mom didn't look too happy about that.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. has revealed he flew out to the Maldives to meet with his ex-fiancee, Becca Kufrin, as part of the current season of The Bachelorette.

Kufrin said she grieved after the public break-up. "So I stand by everything that I posted in my apology, and I'm just trying to grow as a person, be a better person on a daily basis". "I still wanted to find my partner, and I wasn't going to let anything stop me".

The rejection: It's a credit to the producers that they were able to keep us guessing (or at least some of us) until nearly the final moment, when the man she was about to reject stepped out of a motorboat onto the beach. He always surprises me.
