Why though? Well, ratings, obviously, but we're already cringing in anticipation of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s rumored appearance on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette. Hasn't had already caused enough emotional trauma in her life? Go away, Arie! 

  • Becca's season premiered this Monday, and she recently opened up about an upcoming scene that she filmed. 

    "[Arie] will show up, yes," she told Entertainment Tonight. "We do have a conversation and you'll just have to see that unfold. At that point it wasn't emotional, it was just two adults sitting down, wishing each other the best and talking through our experiences. That was our last conversation we've had. I knew that would probably be the last time we had a conversation, and I wish him and Lauren the best."

    After proposing to Becca in Peru, he ended up breaking her heart in one of their "happy couple" visits post-production. While the season was still airing, he broke it off with Becca to give it a go with his runner up, Lauren Burnham. ABC filmed the whole horrific breakup, and played it in its entirety during the After the Final Rose special. 

  • Despite the heartache, Becca says she was ready to give it another go as the new Bachelorette.

    Shortly after the breakup, she told PEOPLE magazine, "I went through the grieving process. I was confused and angry and all the emotions you go through a heartbreak with. Yes, I fell in love and we were engaged. But that ended. And I realized nothing since then changed. I still wanted to find my partner, and I wasn't going to let anything stop me."

  • And it apparently worked! Becca let it drop that she's currently engaged to the man she picks at the Final Rose Ceremony.

    She recently told PEOPLE, "I am engaged! It was the happiest moment of my life. And it feels so good to say it. I still pinch myself, like, did that all just happen? It’s been a whirlwind."

    She also shared that her ring is "very beautiful," and that she can't wait for America to meet her new man. She said, "I'm so excited to start this season and for everyone to see everything that happened. It's been crazy, but it was so worth it."
