The gut-wrenching finish to Becca Kufrin's romance with Arie Luyendyk
Jr. left the Bachelor Nation speechless. In a change of heart, Arie
broke up with America's sweetheart just weeks after proposing to her –
stealing her fairy tale ending and her future. With the help of her
family and friends, Becca was able to pick up the pieces and put the
focus back on herself, moving forward with her life. It is strong
willpower and a firm set of Midwest values that lead Becca to one
certain conclusion: She is willing to take another leap of faith to look
for her soul mate, the love of her life, again. But this time, it will
be on her terms and forever. Now, the humble fan favorite and girl next
door from Minnesota returned for a second shot at love, starring on The
, when it premiered for its 14th season on MONDAY, MAY
28, on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Pristine beaches, unique jungle settings, dream villas and exclusive
romantic locations will take the spotlight in the upcoming finale of
ABC's The Bachelorette. The idyllic private island will enchant
Becca and her bachelors as they savor memorable moments at the resort.
During her time at the resort, Becca will experience a date like never
before, at one of the most exclusive locations on Earth, right on the
Equator. Aboard Shangri-La's luxurious 21-meter-long Horizon yacht,
Becca will experience acrobatic dolphins frolicking around at sunset,
romantic strolls around the island, taking in the unique scenery of
towering banyan trees, coconut palms and natural lagoons offering a
unique backdrop for intimate moments, followed by a swim and paddle
boarding in the stunning turquoise waters of the tranquil lagoon, to
name a few.
