Becca Kufrin and Blake Horstmann’s break up was one of the most emotional and heart breaking scenes in the history of The Bachelorette.
Garrett Yrigoyen talks about watching the entire thing live on After The Final Rose and how he felt about it.
“You know, it was tough. I put myself in his shoes watching that back and I feel for him and I probably would have been the same way,” The Bachelorette season 14 winner tells PEOPLE magazine of Blake’s emotional reaction on the finale when Becca told him that she felt Garrett was a “better fit” for her.
After she said yes to Garrett’s proposal, she chose to tell him that she fell in love with both the finalists, but reserved saying the three special words to him.
“Even prior to the season starting, we had talked about what went on and where my head and my heart was at those last couple weeks,” Becca added. “And so I didn’t want him to be blindsided and be unsure of what was coming up.”
Garrett also added that he’s alright with Becca being friends with her exes from the show.
“You know, from the guys on the show that I know, I would allow her to be friends with whoever she wanted to be,” he says with a smile. “I thought they were all great guys that I got to meet that she wants to be friends with still. And yeah, Jason’s one of them.”
“There are so many relationships that form from this show, whether it’s friendships or romantically and most of those guys were great stand-up men that I’m glad he still wants in his life and same for me.”
