As a long-time fan who has followed her reality TV career from the beginning, I‘m thrilled to provide a comprehensive profile on the unique, captivating Bekah Martinez!

Background and Early Life

Bekah Martinez was born Rebekah Marie Martinez on February 10, 1995 in Los Angeles, California. According to sources, she had an unconventional upbringing, living on a marijuana farm in northern California for part of her childhood.

After graduating high school, Bekah moved back to LA to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. To support herself as a student, she worked as a nanny and bartender.

Even before appearing on The Bachelor, Bekah was known for her bold, Bohemian style and activist spirit. As her former coworker told People, "Bekah has always been unique – she has never been one to conform to society‘s standards."

Breakout Reality TV Star on The Bachelor

In 2018, Bekah Martinez joined 29 other women vying for Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s heart on Season 22 of The Bachelor at the age of 22.

As soon as she stepped out of the limo, Bekah captured America‘s attention with her short pixie haircut, nose ring, and daring personality. During the season, she became known for her eccentric antics and unfiltered commentary.

Bekah formed a close connection with Arie, even bringing him home to meet her family. However, after hometown dates Arie unexpectedly sent Bekah home, choosing Becca Kufrin as the winner.

Even though she didn‘t receive the final rose, Bekah won over millions of fans and cemented her status as an unforgettable Bachelor alum. Her time on the show also led to more reality TV opportunities.

More Reality TV – Bachelor in Paradise and The Challenge

After The Bachelor, Bekah went on to join Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2018. On the beach in Mexico, she began a romance with castmate Leo Dottavio, though it was short-lived.

In 2021, Bekah returned to reality television again competing on MTV‘s The Challenge: All Stars. Though fans were excited to see her back on TV, she was eliminated relatively early by her castmates.

  • Bekah co-hosts a popular Bachelor Nation podcast called Chatty Broads with Jess Ambrose dishing on pop culture and TV.
