Bekah Martinez appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the first time after getting dumped on The Bachelor this Monday night.
“I’m hanging in there. It was shocking for me as well, I’m picking up the pieces as I go along,” Bekah told Jimmy Kimmel about being sent home right before the hometown dates.
When asked why she signed up for the dating reality show, she said:
“For one thing, I have been a fan of the show for years… I’ve been telling my family and friends like, ‘Yeah I’m going on The Bachelor one day,’ Well, I was hoping it would be Peter [Kraus] and it ended it up being Arie.”
Bekah also set the record straight about why her mom reported her missing in November.
“First of all, a lot of people thought I lied to my mother saying that I was on a farm when I was actually on The Bachelor but no I had already been eliminated from the show. I just decided to go to the mountains with my friends for a couple weeks and I was there for six or seven days without phone service which I thought I was going to have phone service and I told my mother that I would.
I just had this weird feeling like on the sixth or seventh day, I need to go home now. So I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents and then come to find out only 12 hours before my mother had called the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing”
“To set the record straight I’m not a weed farmer. I’m still a nanny in L.A.”
