We have finally reached the end of The Bachelor‘s Season 22, but TBH, this finale was straight up infuriating. ICYMI, in the final episode of our fave reality show, Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Becca Kufrin and she accepted. BUT TWIST, after the cameras stopped rolling and Arie and Becca settled into their newly engaged lives, we find out that Arie got cold feet. So instead of talking to Becca like a normal human adult, Arie called The Bachelor producers back for an on-camera breakup ambush, filming their entire split and giving ABC enough footage to extend this bs for a FULL HOUR.

If you think I’m using a lot of caps, trust, I wasn’t the only one riled up by what went down. In fact, numerous Bachelor Nation alum dragged Arie on Twitter for his terrible treatment of Becca.

Wait. Wait. Arie told Bachelor producers he was breaking up with Becca so he could blindside her with cameras present?

UPDATE: My 9 year old is refusing to go to bed until he sees the “clip that’s not edited.” 2ND UPDATE: The longer he watches the more I’m concerned about his need for long term therapy

Arie: “I wanted to do this in person cause I figured it’d be good for us to face now”
Reality: I wanted to do this in person, catch you off guard ON CAMERA to make my season memorable

This is fucked up.

I wonder why didn’t just say, “I need to date you both longer in real life to make this decision.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe

This is just awful….. why are they filming this

Every school in America should be showing these scenes to young men so they learn how uncomfortable it is to linger and not just give her space

Ben Higgins

How did this breakup end up on camera? Seems like a private conversation. We don’t belong in this conversation….but im still watching

— Benjamin Higgins (@benhiggi)

Molly Mesnick
The Bachelor Season 13

Wouldn’t you consider learning from the mistakes of those before you – maybe call and ask what NOT to do…like filming the breakup

— Molly Mesnick (@MollyMesnick)

Kristina Schulman

If only Arie was as decisive in relationships as he is in racing… but then again, when was his last win?

Me waking up this morning after what Arie did to Becca last night.
