The new Bachelorette chatted with ET's Lauren Zima during her recent photo shoot for the hit ABC series and dished on what she doesn't want to occur during her search for "the one."
"My biggest fear is, I mean, kind of what happened," Kufrin shares, referencing Luyendyk's decision to propose to her during the Bachelor finale, only to brutally dump her later for runner-up Lauren Burnham. "Like falling for somebody and ready to spend my life with somebody and have them not be ready or to be like, 'I don't know if you're the one for me.'"
The 28-year-old reality star adds that she doesn't "want drama" and won't be keeping any drama kings around for long.
"I'm trying to weed out the drama as early as possible. Like, I don't want drama," she insists. "If there's a guy that's not meshing well with the other guys, I probably won't want to keep him around that long."
As for how she differs from the Season 22 Bachelor star, Kufrin notes, "I think I'm very blunt and very honest. And I think I'm just a little more peppy."
Kufrin says that no matter what, she is determined to "make that right choice" when selecting her future husband.
"At the end of the day, I will make that right choice, because I'm not going to take this situation lightly," she admits. "I'm not going to let everything else get to me when it's that big of a decision for my life."
In a new teaser for the show, premiering May 28, Kufrin is proving she's an "independent woman" who has clearly moved on from her experience on The Bachelor. She can be seen shimmying in a long rose gold gown among a confetti of rose petals. "Let's do the damn thing!" she declares.
Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette premieres May 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
