Fans of The Bachelorette are likely eager to see who Becca Kufrin will send home Monday, and—spoilers ahead—viewers will prepare to say goodbye to two more eligible men.
Kufrin started Season 14 with 28 contestants, but she's quickly slimming down her contenders. Episode 4 will begin where its predecessor left off: a rose ceremony. Ahead of this, Season 14 contestants Lincoln Adim and Garrett Yrigoyen made headlines for seemingly troubling controversies. Early spoilers predicted Adim and Yrigoyen aren't among Monday's eliminated batch, however.
Fans who tuned in to last week's episode saw contestant Clay Harbor, a tight end who has played with the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots, voluntarily eliminate himself. While on a group date, he broke his wrist during a football game. Harbor would need surgery to fix his injury, causing him to choose between his NFL career and his chances with Kufrin. This led to his exit from the competition.
"I can definitely say that this decision is the hardest decision of my life," Harbor, 30, said on last week's episode. "It's tough...it's Becca, and that's not something you find every day. That's something you might not ever find again. In my life, football has always come first, and the fact that this decision is so hard shows me how much I care."
Harbor may have eliminated himself, but he wasn't the only man vying for Kufrin's heart whose journey got cut short. Contestants Ryan Peterson and Mike Renner didn't receive a rose from Kufrin, according to Reality Steve.
Kufrin's suspected winner is Yrigoyen, who came under fire for liking multiple insensitive Instagram photos. Amid the wave of criticism he received, Yrigoyen deleted his original Instagram account to "start fresh," and Kufrin responded to the backlash.
"I want viewers to be open to everyone, and I want them to go through this season with me and watch my love story unfold with all of these men because that’s how I went into this journey," Kufrin told Entertainment Tonight in May. "I did things in the past that I'm sure wasn’t the best thing, but I just want people to stay open-minded to everyone."
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
