Why Rachel Lindsay & Becca Kufrin Are Grateful for 'The Bachelorette'
Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin learned important life lessons while on "The Bachelorette," and now they're imparting some of that knowledge to the rest of us.
On Wednesday, Becca and Rachel answered several questions during an Instagram "ask me anything" series as part of their virtual "Bachelor Happy Hour" happy hour. Becca started off by sharing a question her mom sent in, which asked about certain life experiences Becca feels grateful for.
She responded, "In the show aspect of things, I learned patience, because it’s a lot of waiting. You can’t be in control. You really just have to go to with the flow."
When it comes to life outside of "The Bachelorette," Becca opened up about dealing with "a lot of death in my life" — including her father, who passed away 10 years ago. "Appreciate the little moments, interactions, memories, and times you’ve had with your loved ones," she said. "Just because I’ve been through those hardships and witnessed a lot of death in a short amount of time, I just appreciate the special moments so much more."
Then it was Rachel's turn. One fan asked "Favorite part of being on the bachelor? other than finding the one?" The Season 13 Bachelorette answered with a photo of herself and her husband Bryan Abasolo and wrote, "This fine man and lifelong friends."
Last week on their virtual happy hour, Becca and Rachel both opened up about special moments with their significant others on the show. Becca spoke about the time Garrett taught her how to fly-fish in the Bachelor Mansion pool on the first night.
Rachel recalled a time towards the end of her season when Bryan gifted her with a special box. She explained, "I mentioned that I love play dominoes. On the hometown I had with Bryan, he took me to play dominoes at Domino Park, which is a legendary place in Miami."
On their last night together before the proposal, Bryan gave her a dominoes box with photos on it that captured their time together throughout the season.
The "Bachelor Happy Hour" co-hosts are both still with their significant others from the show, and Rachel gave a straightforward response as to why Bachelorettes have "more marriages than the Bach."
She responded, "Plain and simple... Women do it better. The men typically chase a fantasy while the women are in search for their reality."
Stay tuned for Rachel and Becca's virtual happy hours, which occur on Wednesday at 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST. In the meantime, be sure to catch up on "Bachelor Happy Hour" episodes you missed now!
