Becca, Blake and Garrett Return to Look Back at the Emotional Ending to Their Journey to Find Love in the Maldives

A Sneak Peek at the Fifth Season of 'Bachelor in Paradise,' Premiering Tuesday, Aug. 7, Will Be Featured

"Episode 1410" - Season Finale - After surviving shocking twists and turns, and a journey filled with laughter, tears, love and controversy, Becca heads to the Maldives with her final two bachelors: Blake and Garrett. She can envision a future with both men, but time is running out. Then later, Becca will be in studio with Blake and Garrett to discuss the stunning outcome and the heartwrenching decisions that changed all of their lives forever, on "The Bachelorette: The Three-Hour Live Finale," airing MONDAY, AUG. 6 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Before the guys arrive in the Maldives, an emotional Becca is excited to be reunited with her family - especially her sister and best friend, Emily. Although Becca is deeply in love with both of these captivating men, she has not expressed those feelings to either of them and hopes her family will help her gain clarity about who would make a better husband.

Garrett is the first man to visit and the couple is ecstatic to see one another. Despite Garrett being nervous about meeting Becca's family, he is intent on proving himself to them. Becca's Uncle Chuck has been the strongest male figure in her life since her father died. The hopeful suitor opens up to him about his divorce and what he has learned from his past mistakes. Emily warns him not to break her sister's heart, but an emotional Garrett makes his case, explaining how much he loves Becca and wants to care for her forever.

As Becca introduces Blake to her family, she is shaken, realizing that she will need to break one man's heart in the end. Her family is immediately impressed with Blake and his connection with Becca, but they do pick up on his concern about his competition. Nevertheless, Blake has no problem sharing his love for Becca with her mother.

The next day is Becca's last date with Garrett, and she is still unsure of who she will choose to be her husband. Despite her indecision, the couple has a wonderful day sailing and spotting a school of dolphins. Their evening is perfect as they seem to be on the same page and very comfortable with each other, but there is still another final date to come.

Blake gets his last chance to convince Becca that he is her true soul mate. He is determined to focus on their relationship. During the day, they explore the island on bikes and paddleboards, and Blake's confidence grows as the date continues into the evening. That night Blake gives Becca a heartfelt gift that takes the couple down a memory lane of their romantic journey. But is it enough? Becca is still filled with confusion and doubt about picking the right man. She is in love, but is he the one? Will she accept his proposal or have second thoughts?

The two remaining suitors are the following:
Blake, 28, a sales representative from Bailey, Colorado
Garrett, 29, a medical sales representative from Reno, Nevada

(from ABC's press release, March 2018) The gut-wrenching finish to Becca Kufrin's romance with Arie Luyendyk Jr. left Bachelor Nation speechless. In a change of heart, Arie broke up with America's sweetheart just weeks after proposing to her - stealing her fairytale ending and her future. Now, the humble fan favorite and girl next door from Minnesota returns for a second shot at love, starring on "The Bachelorette," when it premieres for its 14th season on MONDAY, MAY 28 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. The announcement was made tonight on the live "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose" special. With the help of her family and friends, Becca was able to pick up the pieces and put the focus back on herself, moving forward with her life. It is strong willpower and a firm set of Midwest values that lead Becca to one certain conclusion: She is willing to take another leap of faith to look for her soul mate, the love of her life, again. But this time, it will be on her terms and forever. Becca was raised by her parents Jill and Steve Kufrin, who provided a consummate example of what a marriage should be. She also looks up to her older sister, Emily, the epitome of confidence and charisma. Her father's passing when she was 19 was pivotal and made her look at life through a different lens, where she learned to appreciate each day to the fullest. When Becca isn't making a splash at the boutique public relations agency where she works or planning her next overseas trip, she can be found at home hosting dinner parties for her friends. Will Becca be ready for another engagement after such a heartwrenching breakup? Or will her past haunt her own journey to find the one? Becca believes she can find love again - this time, forever!
