'Bachelorette:' Garrett Yrigoyen, Becca Kurfin talk about future after finale

Wednesday, 08 Aug, 2018

Blake is the first one at the dock, which means he's not getting picked and the viewing population knows for the final hour and 20 minutes who wins, yet we still watch. Patience is also crucial, Wiesel says.

"I love Becca. I really do".

Okay, we get it!

The Bachelorette finale has come and gone and with it, a fair share of controversy centering around the man Becca chose to marry, Garrett Yrigoyan. Or, will Horstmann be the next star of The Bachelor 2019? "I have his back.' Because I can't give away the ending". She mentioned that Horstmann tended to "get more in [his] head" during filming, and that made her worry about how he would be able to handle issues that could come up in their future, like a family member's illness.

"I knew at the end of this it's inevitable that hearts are gonna break but I wanted to treat all the guys how I would want to be treated", she said.

During the After the Final Rose show, Horstmann asked Kufrin for more clarification on her decision. When he asks a heart-wrenching why, Becca explains that their "connection was so strong" it didn't allow her "to see connections with other guys", which is normally a good thing in a relationship, but is apparently a bad thing in this situation. Becca's Uncle Chuck was on hand to pry into Garrett's past; specifically, Garrett's extremely brief first marriage. She cuts him off right before he gets on a knee, and you can see his spirits fall harder than David the Chicken from the top bunk. Mid-answer, Garrett channels his inner Dug from Up by pointing out a pod of dolphins in the water. Kurfin even weighed in, saying she "can't fault anyone for what they believe". And I didn't realize the effect behind a double-tap or a like on Instagram.

In a sign of how big this story became, and how desperate Bachelorette is to keep Becca and Garrett as potential long-term franchise royalty, Chris Harrison brought up the Instagram scandal during the season's live TV finale.

"How would you feel if she didn't pick you, would you be okay?"

The rejection: It's a credit to the producers that they were able to keep us guessing (or at least some of us) until nearly the final moment, when the man she was about to reject stepped out of a motorboat onto the beach.

Still, Blake didn't let premonitions get him down. Read on to find out how Blake reacts when Becca sends him home. "So, I got to know them for them, as opposed to just seeing a couple pictures for 28 men and making a snap judgment off of that".

"Just because I liked it, doesn't necessarily mean that I supported it", he told PEOPLE. Becca's mom asks Blake what he would do if Becca didn't choose him. "It's been tough. And I couldn't say, 'Hey, this is my man". And there was someone else that she couldn't live without.

He said, "I'm just trying to grow as a person, be a better person on a daily basis".

Blake instantly fell apart. "I've been waiting to say it for the right person", she said. "I never want you to doubt yourself", she told Horstmann. "You were not wrong".
