But the saga didn’t end there. Bekah and her parents immediately contacted the Humboldt County sheriff’s office to have her removed from the list of missing persons, but were only able to leave voicemails. This meant she was never struck off the list, and so she was reported as still missing in an article in the North Coast Journal published in February 2018 – when the Bachelor was airing.
“Somebody recognized me from my bachelor’s degree and the story BLEW UP,” continued Bekah. “Seriously … blown up. It got international. But the facts were all cleared up. Some people thought I lied to my mother and told her I was on a weed farm when I was really a bachelor?”
This resulted in a lot of media coverage for her, including a spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “But the real story was so long and confusing that I was just telling all the media that I had to go to my friend’s weed farm to ‘get away and relax’ after filming the bachelor and I was off duty and all my mother thought I was missing [neutral-face emoji]”she admitted.” So many people thought I was a hole for this lol. ”
Luckily everything worked out. “I’m sorry my parents had to endure these horrific 24 hours,” concluded Bekah, now a mother of two. “And I definitely never spoke to that girl again.”
Show of hands, when she started telling this story, who knew that the bear enema would be the least exciting aspect?
