Fasten your seatbelts, Bachelor Nation! There may be a new couple in the franchise that no one saw coming. Rumors abound on social media that Emmanuel Acho is dating a former Bachelorette. What’s the scoop?
Is Emmanuel Acho Dating Someone From Bachelor Nation?
Bachelor Nation fans met Emmanuel Acho in March when he stepped in to host After the Final Rose. The franchise was in the middle of a controversy involving the racially insensitive behavior of contestant Rachael Kirkconnell. She ultimately won Matt James’ final rose, but they split before the ATFR taping.
The controversy swept up Chris Harrison and he took a step back from his hosting duties. He hasn’t returned yet.
Emmanuel Acho isn’t unknown to anyone who watches Fox Sports, where he co-hosts Speak For Yourself.
While viewers had mixed reactions to the news of a replacement host, many Bachelor Nation alums were here for it. Season 14 Bachelorette Becca Kufrin congratulated him on the hosting gig, People reported at the time.
Now rumors are circulating social media that Acho and Kufrin are dating.
Where Did the Rumor Come From?
It may be wishful thinking from Bachelor Nation fans. All traces of the rumor point to it starting on the Date Card podcast’s Instagram. From there, it made its way to Reddit and other outlets.
The podcast’s evidence is flimsy, but enough for a rumor to spread like wildfire. One Redditor, r/kimberbet, shared a piece of the evidence – a since-deleted comment Kufrin left on Acho’s fiery hot selfie.

In the comment, Becca Kufrin jokingly asked if the photographer was for hire. Some fans interpreted that as Kufrin being the one who took the photo.
@datecardpod has another piece of the puzzle on their Instagram Stories – Kufrin’s signed copy of Emannuel Acho’s book Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.
Looking through Becca Kufrin’s Instagram posts, we found a comment on one of her Hot Girl Summer bikini posts. She was recently in Cabo celebrating her birthday. Emmanuel Acho left a simple “happy birthday” in the comments, but perhaps there’s more than meets the eye.

This isn’t the first time Becca Kufrin’s dating life has been the topic of conversation. She split from fiance Garrett Yrigoyen in late 2020. They had been engaged for two years after meeting during her season of The Bachelorette.
While he has publicly moved on to someone else, she has remained single. Earlier this year, there was speculation that she was dating Bachelor in Paradise’s Blake Horstmann. Fans were taken by their flirtatious behavior when she appeared on his podcast.
However, the rumors were much ado about nothing.
Another rumor engulfing Becca Kufrin is that she will appear on Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise. The show is eyeing former leads joining the show for the heavily-anticipated season. In years past, the show only featured former contestants, not the leads.
Kufrin recently addressed the rumors on her Instagram, joking that she was already in paradise in Cabo.
