If you watched this season of The Bachelor with Arie Luyendyk Jr., then you definitely won’t want to miss the upcoming season of The Bachelorette! After a truly dramatic experience on The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin has been confirmed as the franchise’s next leading lady. The announcement was made during the live After the Final Rose special that saw Arie proposing to Lauren B. Yeah, he’s still a jerk, but at least we get to see a whole season of Becca as The Bachelorette to make up for it it!

As you probably know by now, Becca got engaged to Arie in the finale of The Bachelor, but he had a change of heart and decided to break up with her in order to pursue a relationship with Lauren. However, the worst part is that he blindsided Becca in front of cameras! Shady AF, right?

Though Bachelor Nation is still outraged over Arie’s decision, Becca says she’s forgiven him, proving that she really is a class act. No point in keeping grudges over some jerk when she can start dating 25 new (“better…suited”) men next season! Following the announcement, Becca even got to meet five guys who will be competing for her heart!

Lincoln, who was the first to step out to meet Becca, made quite an impression. Not only is he adorable AF, but he’s British. He also called out Arie for being a “wanker” and for that, we thank him.

Then there was Chase and his million dollar smile. “I saw what you went through and my heart goes out to you,” he said. “I think everyone here agrees with me that you deserve better than that. I hope to be that. When one door closes, another door opens, and I hope to be that open door.” While he seemed nice enough, he seemed to smile at the cameras a whole lot, forcing us to wonder if he’s really “here for the right reasons.” Every season needs a villain… could Becca’s be him? Only time will tell.

There was also Brian, who came equipped with his very own banjo. Super cute! He seems like a free spirit who Becca can have a lot of fun with. “I’m feeling pretty groovy. You look incredible. I’ve heard many incredible things about you,” he said after singing to her. They both seem quirky in all the right ways, and we can totally see this guy getting to the final four.

After Brian, came Darius, who apologized for all the jerks out there, and reassured Becca that he didn’t come on the show to mess around, but that he was there for her. He spent an awful lot of time ogling the lead lady – but we won’t know his true intentions until the season really starts.

Finally, Blake made his entrance aaaand he was accompanied by a horse! He pulled out all the stops for his first impression – and let’s just say he can be her knight in shining armor.

“I want you to know how incredibly brave I think it is that you’re standing here right now. I really respect that a lot, and I can’t wait to get to know you. As the saying goes, when you fall off the horse, you’ve got to get back up again,” he told Becca. “So I’ve brought you this horse, and I want to be the man to help you get back up again.” Talk about being Prince Charming!

Honestly, we could not be more thrilled that ABC chose Becca as their new Bachelorette. Not only did America fall in love with her, but she deserves to find love.

Mark your calendars! The Bachelorette premieres on May 28 on ABC.
