Bekah Martinez got booted from “The Bachelor” on Monday night, which gave her the opportunity to finally explain how she mistakenly ended up on a missing persons list.
Bekah was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” for her first post-“Bachelor” interview and while Jimmy did ask a few questions about the show, he really wanted to know why her mother reported her missing last year.
“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,'” Bekah explained. “But no, I had already been eliminated from the show.”
She continued, “I just decided to go to the mountains with my friends for a couple 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 … I just had this weird feeling, on like on the sixth or seventh day, 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 mother had called the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing.”
Bekah remained on the missing persons list for months, which was a mistake, until she was finally removed after a “Bachelor” fan spotted her.
“To set the record straight: I’m not a weed farmer,” Bekah added. “I’m still a nanny in L.A.”
