Bekah M. From ‘The Bachelor’ Told Jimmy Kimmel Why Her Mom Reported Her Missing & It’s Hilarious

Remember when Bekah M. from The Bachelor popped up in a Missing Persons collage on Facebook? Well, she fully explained the hilarious misunderstanding on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

It turns out, Bekah had just been voted off of Arie’s season after a group date and she decided to take a little vacation before returning home. 

“Alright, let me set the record straight,” Bekah told Kimmel. “First of all, a lot of people thought I lied to my mother saying that I was on a farm when I was actually on The Bachelor. But no, I had already been eliminated from the show and I just decided to go up to the mountains with some friends for a couple of weeks, and I was there for six or seven days without phone service, which I thought I was going to have phone service and I told my mother that I would.” Uh-oh. 

“I just had this weird feeling on like the sixth or seventh day. I was like, ‘I need to go home now.’ So I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents and then come to find out only 12 hours before, my mom called the Humble [County] Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing,” Bekah said.

Kimmel kept making jokes about her being on a marijuana farm because the Sheriff’s Department initial report said she was. “To set the record straight, I am not a weed farmer, I’m still a nanny in L.A., but yes, my friends have a weed farm.” This whole story is just too funny.

Prior to her Missing Persons story, Bekah talked about her elimination and her feelings on it all. “You know, I’m hanging in there. It was shocking for me as well. But, I’m picking up the pieces as I go along.” Yes, girl. 

The Bachelor airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. and though we will miss Bekah, Arie still has a choice to make. Who will get the final rose?
