How Old Is Bekah From The Bachelor?

Mystery Solved! Here's How Old The Bachelor's Bekah Is

The new year started off as every year should: with the premiere of The Bachelor! Blast from the past Arie Luyendyk Jr., a race car driver and realtor in Scottsdale, AZ, was introduced to more than two dozen women — and boy were they . . . interesting.

Among them is Bekah Martinez, a nanny from Los Angeles. Bachelor Nation quickly realized a key piece of information missing about Martinez: her age. It's not shown on TV and isn't even noted in her bio. Is she Benjamin Button? Does she even have an age? Well, everyone, she does. And that age is 22.

We can thank the Instagram gods for helping us solve this mystery! Martinez confirmed that her birthday is on Feb. 10, and on that day in 2016, she posted a picture with a #21. Now, I'm no Sherlock Holmes (maybe I am for figuring that out?), but that means that in 2017, she turned 22. Why is this noteworthy, you may ask? Well, Luyendyk Jr. is 36 years old. So that means when he was on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette back in 2012, Martinez was 17 years old — and too young to go on the show.

Martinez's age wasn't brought up in the season premiere, at the end of which she receives a rose. But a season teaser shows some of the women discussing it. One woman says, "I think she is reluctant to tell Arie how old she is." And Martinez looks to get emotional about the topic. Anyone hating on Martinez's age is probably just jealous of all the Instagram sponsorships she's going to have by her 23rd birthday (it's only funny 'cause it's true).
