Bekah Martinez may no longer be competing for Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s heart on The Bachelor, but will not be easily forgotten by the show’s fans – and she has her mom to thank for that.
Following Monday’s episode, Martinez appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for her first TV appearance post-Bachelor. “I’m hanging in there. It was shocking for me as well, I’m picking up the pieces as I go along,” the 22-year-old nanny from Los Angeles told host Jimmy Kimmel.
“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,’ ” she said when asked why she signed up for the ABC dating competition series instead of conventional dating apps.
“Well, I was hoping it would be Peter and it ended it up being Arie,” Martinez admitted about the possibilities of dating the fan favorite who made it to the final two on Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay‘s season.
