Bachelor Nation has been following Becca Kufrin’s journey to find love since 2018.
The former publicist was named the season 14 Bachelorette after Arie Luyendyk Jr. broke her heart on season 22 of The Bachelor. After proposing to Becca during the 2018 finale, the former race car driver broke up with the Minnesota native because he was still in love with runner-up Lauren Burnham. While Arie and Lauren went on to tie the knot, Becca searched for love with 28 men on The Bachelorette.
“I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” she began on her “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast. “After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details.”
The twosome have since unfollowed each other on Instagram. Scroll through for an update on the most memorable names from Becca’s season:

The season 14 runner-up returned to reality TV for season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise during the summer of 2019. His time in Mexico quickly turned tumultuous after it was revealed he had relationships with Caelynn Miller-Keyes, Hannah Godwin and Kristina Schulman prior to filming.
“I have, like, PTSD, and I obviously don’t mean that as in, like, Vietnam, Army, like whatever, but I do when I start thinking about being back down on that beach. Like, my heart races, my palms sweat,” Blake said on his “Behind the Rose” podcast in August 2020. “I think that I’d have anxiety attacks [if I did another season of BiP]. Like, I really do. So I don’t know if I could do actually Paradise down on that beach, but I still believe in the show.”
The duo, who temporarily relocated to L.A. while Kaitlyn competed on season 29 of Dancing With the Stars, share two dogs Pinot and Ramen. While the pair aren’t engaged — yet — both Kaitlyn and Jason been open about their plans to tie the knot and have a family together in the future.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, Jason started a weekly newsletter, Restart, to give financial tips and advice.
Their split turned messy in July 2020 when Cassie appeared on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! After he slammed her appearance, the grad student accused Colton of trying to “monetize” their breakup by writing a new chapter of his book, The First Time. While Colton claimed they were on better terms during an August 2020 interview, noting Cassie approved of his new chapter, she filed a restraining order against him in September 2020. In the court docs, Cassie accused Colton of stalking, placing a tracking device in her car and harassment via “unsettling text messages.”
After nearly two months, Colton revealed Cassie filed to drop the order against him.
“Today Cassie asked the court to dismiss the temporary restraining order against me,” he said in a statement to Us on November 3, 2020. “The two of us were able to reach a private agreement to address any of Cassie’s concerns. I do not believe Cassie did anything wrong in filing for the restraining orders and also believe she acted in good faith. I appreciate everyone’s respect for privacy regarding this matter.”
Colton, who deleted all of the content on his Instagram account, has laid low since the legal drama.

Connor appeared on season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2018 and Bachelor in Paradise Australia in 2019. While he left with Shannon Baff, their relationship didn’t last. The health and wellness trainer, who lives in Saint Petersburg, Florida, went Instagram official with his girlfriend in January 2020.
“Icing on the cake for feeling truly broken,” Chris wrote via Instagram Stories at the time. “But I know in my heart I’m gonna find a super dope woman and have the most beautiful babies a dad could ask for. So I’ll continue to follow my heart and let God guide my path in finding an incredible woman to build & grow with.”
In 2020, Chris teamed up with Bachelorette season 13 alum Eric Bigger to write a self-help book titled TRANS·FOR·MA·TION: Change Your Mindset, Change Your Energy, Change Your Life.
“It’s official! I love you @bee_nowell for making me a better person with my friends and family, helping me feel & articulate my emotions, and always putting our relationship first. I’m blessed to have won at life by finding you ❤️,” he wrote alongside pics from the proposal. “I proposed along the Sonoma coast. I was so nervous when I got down on one knee. I’m pretty sure I blacked out in the moment, but then she pulled me up and wouldn’t let go of me. Don’t ever let me go!”
Becca sent her love in the comments section, writing, “Congrats you two! So happy for you both 💖.”
