Kufrin has now moved on to become the next “Bachelorette.” Her season premieres next week.
In a recent interview with E!, Luyendyk said he hopes viewers will “understand me a lot more” after they get over the initial unexpectedness of his decision.
“This is my journey, and this is about finding a lasting love and that road is not always the easiest,” he said. “It’s all about the ending and finding that person for yourself and that’s the important part. I’m very happy.”
