The Bachelorette finale: Blake ‘hysterical’ after Becca dumps him

Share

Anyway, the episode wasn't as bad as Arie's, but there were still some upsetting scenes during the finale, in which Becca got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen and dumped Blake Horstmann.

Becca Kufrin's season of "The Bachelorette" ended on Monday night, and given that she walked away with Garrett, fans might immediately think that Blake is the natural pick for "The Bachelor's" next season. For the show, Garrett's social-media behavior is not a problem because it "offended" people, and it's certainly not a problem because it espouses nauseating, false, and dehumanizing political stances. It sounded like a softball question, but really, he was teeing up a rather uncomfortable moment. It's a problem because Garrett revealed beliefs that were "going against" Becca's, and this makes them seem less like fairy-tale soul mates.

'He was great on night one, but, I could tell he was nervous and I wasn't sure if he could get past the cameras, ' she said.

This became quite the controversy online, and almost overshadowed the actual show.

In a sneak peek of the season premiere of "Bachelor in Paradise", the two are reunited on the beach in Mexico. Before Becca can make her choice, though, there has to be a montage of Blake, Becca, and Garrett staring off into the middle distance as they get ready for the proposal - or public humiliation.

Still alive, though, Becca shows up for dinner in a silk nightgown that's been chopped in half - the latest in a long line of double-u-tee-eff fashion decisions by our leading lady (the women in my watching party group will back me up on this). "I didn't mean to offend anybody, I apologize for that still", Garrett said.

"I'm very sorry, I didn't meant to hurt anybody's feelings". "I think there is a better fit for us out there".

Another detail left out of this segment? Before we can get to the clean-cut white man tears, though, Becca has to introduce both men to her family and the only place to do that is in the Maldives. "Telling your partner "I know this feels really crummy and it feels like you can't manage this, but you can" can go a long way toward helping". So Blake had already gone on about Becca's virtues and had asked her, "Will you let me spend the rest of my life making you smile?" before Becca interrupted him. "So when we started talking about that, we got through that together, and we're growing, we're progressing and we're moving forward".

"Colton, why are we pulling girls that aren't named Tia?" wondered his former "Bachelorette" co-star, Jordan.

Becca said that while the scandal was "a hurdle", the thought of leaving him "never crossed my mind". "But I felt she knew me as a person and that I didn't stand behind those likes, and I was a better person than what I was presenting on my social media". You can imagine this trip could have been very hard for Lauren but she has supported and stood by me in all of this... 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".

The future: When the proposal finally came it nearly seemed like an afterthought given how long we had to wait to see it (although I understand why the producers wouldn't have made Blake sit and watch it). "I don't know what to say".

"He went through the entire season being open and transparent", Becca concluded.
