The Bachelor's Arie Luyendyk Jr. Explains Why He Filmed Becca Breakup

Arie Luyendyk Jr. is explaining why he filmed his breakup with The Bachelor‘s Becca Kufrin.

“I really wanted everyone to know that this was on me,” Arie told Michael Strahan during an appearance on Good Morning American on Wednesday (March 7). “This was my fault, and I felt like filming that would let people know that, that if there were any questions on the breakup, that those would be squashed if they saw the breakup.”

“And I wanted her that opportunity, honestly, I wanted her that opportunity to be the potential Bachelorette. I hope I gave her that closure. I’m very happy for her. I’m happy that she’s going to be able to find her true love through the show,” he continued.

Becca was named the new Bachelorette and her season will begin on May 28.

On his engagement to runner up Lauren, he added, “This ending obviously wasn’t perfect, and I know it’s difficult for a lot of people to swallow, but I’m happy, and it took a long, hard road to get here and I’m really solid in my relationship. We’ve been together since January and it’s going really well.”
