As if there wasn’t already enough drama on The Bachelor this week, eagle-eyed fans questioned if there was a engagement ring exchange behind the scenes.
After Arie Luyendyk Jr. gave Becca Kufrin a Neil Lane sparkler (you know, before mercilessly dumping her on national television), Bachelor Nation thought the ring looked super familiar: just like the one that Benoit Beauséjour-Savard proposed to Clare Crawley with on the Bachelor Winter Games finale.
It’s true: both are oval-shaped with halos and diamonds along the band. Compare away below — the tweets are the one Becca temporarily had, and Clare’s is in the sixth photo of the Instagram post.
And here’s what fans had to say.
Given that contestants are required to return the engagement ring if their relationship doesn’t pan out, it’s not impossible that Becca gave back the ring and Benoit then picked it out for Clare.
However, the jeweler himself squashed the rumor, saying they’re different rings.
“Both are handmade, and although similar in design, they are not the same ring,” Lane explained to People. “On first glance they do look similar.”
As long as Lauren didn’t get Becca’s ring, it’s all good.
