During an October 2021 appearance on the “Whine Down” podcast, the Bachelor Winter Games alum said she wouldn’t change anything about her Bachelorette experience, even though it didn’t end with her happily ever after.

“I always feel like I do not want to have regrets and I don’t even know — to be honest — if I would have done things differently because I was doing the best I could at the time with the information that I had,” she said at the time. “And if my biggest regret is trusting the process, trusting a man’s words and who he showed me he was, I don’t think that that’s a regret. I believed someone that they were as they claimed they were. [and] that they would hold up to the promises that they make when they get down on one knee.”

They finally realized that perhaps they did move too quickly after all,” the insider said at the time.
