The Bachelorette alum Becca Kufrin made the historic return to Bachelor Nation by choosing to give another stab at love in the hot, summer spin-off, Bachelor in Paradise.
While the publicist went to Bachelor in Paradise for some time at the beach and even admitted to a wild list of demands, she didn’t expect to leave with a real love connection.
Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs aka “Thecca” was the connection that fans did not see coming and the 31-year-old recently gushed on social media about her new boyfriend.

Both Natasha Parker and Chelsea Vaughn expressed their happiness in the comment section for their fellow costars on finding love.

However, since leaving Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Nation is well aware that Becca and Thomas have since reunited.
