When is Bachelor drama not messy AF? Right now the 14th season of The Bachelorette is airing with Becca Kufrin as the leading lady. One of her contestants, Colton Underwood, went out with Tia Booth (who was on Arie Luyendyk’s Bachelor season with Becca).
Immediately fans started accusing Colton of not being there for the right reasons and only applying because he believed Tia would be the Bachelorette. Becca decides to give Colton a chance, how kind of her. But then Reality Steve, the holy grail of Bachelor franchise spoilers, shared a photo of Colton and Tia on a date while filming Bachelor in Paradise.
Bekah Martinez (who was on Arie’s season along with Becca and Tia) decided to insert herself in the drama. On June 15 Bekah dragged Colton and Tia for essentially playing Becca and using the franchise to their advantage.
Raven Gates (who was on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor) got in a huge Twitter argument with Bekah about her always dragging Tia. Mean things were said, tweets were deleted and followers were gained.
It got messy, like dark Bachelor franchise messy. But three days after her first tweet Bekah has had a come to moment of forgiveness, sort of. The former reality star tweeted:
“I woke up this morning realizing I regret blasting Tia+Colton on social media. Regardless of my feelings about the situation, a sarcastic tweet is not the way to handle it. There ARE less petty/immature routes to take, and I HAD promised Tia months ago I’d stop the shit-talking.”
She followed that tweet up with a second tweet:
“To clarify, I could have still kept it real and spoken my truth in a less abrasive, less shit-stirring way. The issue is the way I handled it, not the content.”
So Bekah is sorry about the way she dragged Tia and Colton, but not the fact that she did drag them. Raven has yet to comment on Bekah’s semi-remorseful tweets because she blocked her.
After the Bachelor alumni’s initial fight Raven deleted a handful of tweets and explained why she got in the middle of the drama in the first place.
“Just so you guys know, Bekah tweeted something rude & unnecessary to create drama & I went to stick up for my friend who can’t respond right now. I decided to delete the tweets & I blocked her bc I don’t want to keep engaging with someone who will continuously drag her ‘friends.'”
Colton and Tia can’t respond right now or even know what’s going on, because they are filming Bachelor in Paradise. Contestants aren’t allowed to be on their phones let alone social media during filming.
They’ll have lots to catch up on when filming wraps up.
