Rachel Lindsay Slams Becca Kufrin's Fiance Garrett Yrigoyen In New Interview: 'He's a Piece of S--t To Me'

Rachel Lindsay isn’t holding back about how she feels about Garrett Yrigoyen.

The former Bachelorette star opened up in a new interview on Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino about her feelings for Garrett, who is engaged to Rachel‘s podcast partner and friend, Becca Kufrin.

“I think he’s a piece of s***, and I have said to her, ‘I will not f*** with him’,” Rachel confessed.

She added that since his first comments involving police brutality and Black Lives Matter, “he has doubled down on his beliefs. This isn’t the first time he’s had problematic behavior.”

“When he was on the season, he had a history of liking things that were racist, sexist, homophobic, calling the Parkland students child actors, it was a lot,” Rachel recalled of Garrett. “So this is who this man is and he’s a piece of s*** to me.”

Rachel added, “This is going to make headlines. Maybe I’m causing problems.”

Last month, Garrett made headlines for his social media posts in support of the police following the death of George Floyd. Becca, then, stood by Garrett before having a big conversation with Rachel on their podcast.

Becca has since updated fans on where her relationship stands with Garrett.

Becca Kufrin & Rachel Lindsay Are Sending Clare Crawley A 'Bachelorette Bible'

Clare Crawley is getting a little gift from former Bachelorette stars Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin.

The 39-year-old reality star was a guest on the duo’s Bachelor Happy Hour podcast where they revealed to her that there’s a Bachelorette Bible that has been passed around through the recent title holders, expect Hannah Brown.

“I don’t know why we didn’t give it to [her],” Becca admitted, before realizing it had been in her mom’s basement for the past two years.

Becca shared that the “bible” is something that Rachel, Kaitlyn Bristowe and JoJo Fletcher made for her ahead of her own Bachelorette season.

“Right before you hopped on I did a little digging in a bunch of boxes in my apartment and I found the Bachelorette Bible that Rachel, Kaitlyn and JoJo made for me,” she shared. “I met them night one, before I met the guys and they gave me the Bachelorette Bible.”

She added, “They have some great things written in here. I think we need to add our own and write some more stuff in and then I’ll send it to you. This was so good to carry on and pass down.”

Clare will be starting to film her season of the show next month. Get the details about how it will be filmed here…

Rachel Lindsay Says There Was a Racist Contestant on Her 'Bachelorette' Season

Rachel Lindsay was The Bachelorette in 2017 and she revealed to Andy Cohen that she “did have a racist contestant on my season.”

During her Watch What Happens Live! appearance, Rachel also spoke about experiencing racism first hand during her time with Bachelor Nation.

“From the audience. I definitely experienced it,” she said. “More so when it came to picking the men, and then at the end, my husband is Colombian, so I got a lot of racism towards the fact that we were in an interracial relationship. Just a lot of nasty messages, trolling.”

As for the racist contestant, fans will remember that one man, Lee Garrett, was outed during her season for his tweets writing disparaging remarks about Black Lives Matter, feminism, the LBGTQ+ community and more.

Rachel also revealed three of her contestants she never wants to see again.

Rachel Lindsay & Husband Bryan Abasolo Have 'Tough' Conversations About Race

Rachel Lindsay is opening up about how racism impacts her relationship with her husband Bryan Abasolo.

Speaking to ET, the 35-year-old attorney opened up about how being an interracial couple forced them to have thick skin.

“People were not receptive to our relationship at the end of [The Bachelorette]. So, we’ve always had to develop a thick skin and figure out how to navigate this world as an interracial couple. We did that from the very beginning,” she shared.

Rachel added that “what the world is going through right now, we’ve had the tough discussions about presenting ourselves as an interracial couple before, and how we want to raise our children. Bryan has always gotten it.”

Bryan and Rachel tied the knot just last year in August and while she knew she had always made the right choice in him, that feeling was solidified as they protest together for Black Lives Matter.

“Communication has always been the foundation of our relationship and we always have those tough conversations, so watching Bryan protest and scream ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and really get emotional in the whole experience … of course I look over and am like, ‘Gosh, I made the right decision, because he understands me and I understand him,’” she says.

This other star also has had tough conversations about race with their white partner.

Rachel Lindsay 'Definitely Asked' About Why Mike Johnson Wasn't Chosen As 'Bachelor'

Like many of us, Rachel Lindsay was upset that Mike Johnson was passed over for Peter Weber to lead season 24 of The Bachelor.

Speaking with ET, Rachel revealed that she “definitely asked” for a reason of why he was passed over.

“I was extremely vocal about Mike Johnson and how he checked all the boxes and it doesn’t make sense why he is not the lead,” Rachel added. “And it even seemed as if the audience wanted him. The audience was not into Peter.”

She also doesn’t believe that the reason Mike wasn’t chosen is because he is black.

“I was told there was a reason. What that reason may be, I don’t know,” she added. “I wasn’t given a specific answer. Maybe they can’t specifically tell me why they didn’t choose him. I think if they could tell us, they would, because it just looks so bad that they didn’t pick him.”

“I mean, Michael Johnson was a gift. To me, it was an easy decision, but I’m not in the decision room,” Rachel said. “They do all kinds of background checks and vet things out. I have no idea what the reason was, but they have it. I’m told they have a reason, because I was definitely up in arms when I found out it wasn’t going to be him.”

Rachel spoke up about how upset she was he wasn’t cast late last year, as well.
