In Arie’s season of the bachelor, in the end, he proposed Becca Kufrin instead of Lauren, who ended up being the show’s runner up.

2 years ago the morning after our dramatic finale before going on @goodmorningamerica. ❤️Hoping @pilot_pete finds his way despite what road it takes to get there. At the end of the day it’s a decision that leads to the rest of your life and however hard and complicated it’s 1000% worth the risk. Don’t know how this season ends but don’t be quick to pass judgment if it isn’t what you at home want or expect from it. So much more to this journey than the viewer sees. Can’t wait to see what happens!
After the show, the couple is making strides in keeping their lives running as both of them now work as real estate agents in Arizona. The couple has proved all their doubters wrong and has no regrets about finding their way back together.
Arie and Lauren are both in touch with the Bachelor’s franchise, a show that brought them together and they hosted the YouTube series, The Bachelor Brunch through Peter’s Season, they’ll surely be able to have some valuable inputs form the Listen to Your Heart contestants.
As for the couple’s future, they are busy with their one-year daughter, Alessi.
