I’m Right Here! Bekah M Clears Up Missing Person Rumors, Teases Mom In New Interview
The Bachelor’s Bekah Martinez is not a weed farmer, and she’s not missing.
Moments after she shocked viewers by being eliminated from the dating show, the infamous “Bekah M.” explained to Jimmy Kimmel, during a late-night appearance, why her mother sent a missing person’s report after losing contact with her for a few days!
“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,” clarified Martinez, 22, to the show host.
“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,” she told Kimmel, 50.
“I just had this weird feeling 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,” she added.
Her mother reportedly contacted Martinez’s friends and asked that her daughter return home, but she refused. She then assumed she was working at a marijuana farm because the blooming reality star told her the location she was in.
During her talk with Kimmel, Martinez clarified that she was nowhere near a pot farm.
“To set the record straight I’m not a weed farmer. I’m still a nanny in L.A.,” Bekah said this Monday night.
After news broke of her missing person’s report, Martinez joked about the incident on twitter, writing: “MOM. how many times do I have to tell you I don’t get cell service on The Bachelor??
Speaking of her experience on The Bachelor, Martinez admitted to Kimmel that at first she hoped she would get to compete for Peter Kraus’ heart, but was later pleasantly surprised by Arie Luyendyk.
“I’m hanging in there,” she said of her TV breakup. “It was shocking for me as well, I’m picking up the pieces as I go along.”
