Is Bekah Martinez Heading to ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?
As season 22 of The Bachelor gears up for its March 5 finale on ABC, contestants reconvened on the Women Tell All special on Sunday to dish on all things Arie — and each other. Host Chris Harrison even teased some future Bachelor Nation news by suggesting that this season’s breakout star Bekah Martinez might appear on Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
Harrison let the hint slip out in a pretty hilarious way. “Does your mom know where you are right now?” he asked the 23-year-old, alluding to recent news that her mom filed a mistaken missing-person report on her in November, when Martinez took a camping trip with friends after being sent home by Arie.
The host then called Martinez’s mom as part of the gag, telling her that she might have to prepare for another “disappearance” in the coming months. “There’s a good chance she’s going to be missing for about two weeks this summer, because hopefully she’ll be in Mexico on Bachelor in Paradise,“ Harrison said.
So far, ABC hasn’t released any official casting info for an upcoming season of BIP, and Martinez, who recently said she’d be open to potential appearances on The Bachelorette or BIP, hasn’t confirmed her participation. But that didn’t stop fans from freaking out at Harrison’s hint about the show on Twitter.
Following her elimination from the show, Martinez admitted that it was difficult and she was “picking up the pieces,” but that meeting with Arie afterward was able to provide some closure. Sounds like a trip to Paradise might be just what she needs!
