Bekah Martinez was eliminated coming from The Bachelor on Monday night, which begs the question – where exactly can be she? The 22-year-old contestant made headlines recently when her mother reported her as a missing person in Humboldt County.
Though she previously joked about the incident on Twitter, she couldn’t share the real reason for the confusion until after her elimination was made public.
“A lot of people thought I lied to my mother saying of which I was on the farm when I was actually on The Bachelor, although no, I had already been eliminated coming from the show,” Bekah explained on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Following her elimination, Bekah went to the mountains with some friends, as well as also of which’s where she ran into some problems.
“I was there for six or seven days without phone service, as well as also I thought I was going to have phone service as well as also I told my mother I might,” she said. “I just had This specific weird feeling on like the sixth or seventh day. I was like, ‘I need to go home at This specific point.’ So I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents. Come to find out only 12 hours before, my mother had called the Humboldt sheriff’s department saying I was missing.”
Despite reports of which she had told her mother she was going to work on a weed farm, Bekah clarified, “To set the record straight, I’m not a weed farmer. I’m still a nanny in L.A.. although yes, my friends have a weed farm.”
As for her own elimination coming from the ABC dating show, Bekah admitted of which was tough for her.
“I’m hanging in there. of which was shocking for me as well,” she said. “although I’m picking up the pieces as they go along.”
Kimmel called out fellow contestant Tia, who told Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. of which Bekah wasn’t ready for marriage. Bekah noted of which she has seen Tia since of which time, “Against my will.”
