Becca Kufrin is opening up about her upcoming season of The Bachelorette – and the breakup that aired on national television!

The 27-year-old reality star made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday (March 15).

During her appearance, Becca opened up in her first sit-down interview about getting engaged to Arie Luyendyk Jr. on the season finale of The Bachelor – who then promptly broke it off a few weeks after by revealing he was in love with runner-up Lauren Burnham.

Becca told Ellen that watching the season back and seeing their relationship unfold helped her get over the heartache.

She also revealed that she wishes she told Arie to leave sooner, and said she hasn’t heard from him since the After The Final Rose special.

Becca also chatted about what she’s looking for in a suitor, and how she would react if her ex Ross, who showed up during Arie‘s season of The Bachelor, came out of the limo.

Plus, she revealed her celebrity crush – and Ellen surprised her with a Bachelorette Survival Kit!

Becca‘s Bachelorette season premieres on May 28. Watch her Ellen appearance below!

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.”
