While Becca’s season was airing, fans discovered that Garrett Yrigoyen, the frontrunner, had liked and reposted things on Instagram that were racist in nature. He soon went on the defense, and many fans hoped that Becca wouldn’t pick him as the recipient of her final rose.
But, Becca and Garrett got engaged during the finale episode, and she spoke out about how she didn’t approve of the things he did online, but that she felt it wasn’t his true character.
In the year since their televised engagement, Becca and Garrett are still going strong. The couple posts frequently together on Instagram, and it’s clear that they’re (so far) not rushing into marriage. Garrett was previously married for several months a few years before he joined the show.
