There’s only one question – are you here for the right reasons?

BECCA KUFRIN
Born and raised in Minnesota, Rebecca (Becca) Kufrin is an American publicist and television personality with a small-town vibe. She is best known for her role as the winner of the 22nd season of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” the lead on season 14 of “The Bachelorette,” and contestant on season 7 of “Bachelor in Paradise.”

Along with making a few cameos and falling in love on national TV, Becca also has a deep passion for writing, corgis, a good book, wood-burning fireplaces, dance and yoga, robes with warm slippers, glasses of vino, and creating new recipes in the kitchen. When she’s not traveling for business, she tries to travel for pleasure and spread her feet over as many states and counties as possible. She can also be found most evenings cuddled up with her furbaby, Minno, who is arguably the world’s most spoiled pup (in a cute way).

Since her time away from reality tv, Becca has launched her own sparkling wine label called Bourdon, and has been enjoying sharing her bubbly with others (because every moment should be celebrated and savored.) She also has a deep passion for women’s empowerment and equality, and has partnered with WomenOne, a non-profit devoted to creating positive change in the lives of women and girls globally through access to quality education. She will again be taking on the role as host for both Bachelor Live on Stage and Warner’s official Bachelor podcast, Bachelor Happy Hour. It’s safe to say she is a lifelong alumni to the Bachelor world and isn’t going away anytime soon.

RICK LEACH (“The Bachelorette, season 18)
Rick is a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic who has been thinking about his future wife for as long as he can remember. He finds romanticism in the small things in life and is the type of guy who will send you flowers at work for no reason but to say, “I love you.” He wears his heart on his sleeve because when he is into someone, he wants them to know and doesn’t want to play games. He does love a good game night though because he says he can tell a lot about someone’s personality when competition is involved. At the end of the day, Rick wants to find his heart’s true counterpart and someone who can make the world a better place alongside him. #Swoon.
