Are you ready for The Bachelor‘s finale? One of the contestants thinks that Arie Luyendyk Jr. wasn’t ready to film it. Not in his heart, anyway.

Bekah Martinez isn’t divulging any The Bachelor Spoilers, exactly, but it’s clear that she knows how things end.

In the video below, she isn’t mincing words when she tells the world exactly what Arie is really like. She doesn’t paint a pretty picture.

As we all saw in the preview for The Bachelor‘s epic finale, Arie Luyendyk Jr. feels like a monster. He says so himself.

It turns out that Bekah Martinez, the notoriously young contestant who was also very briefly a "missing person," has a similar view of the man whose heart she once vied to win.

She doesn’t quite use the word "monster," but she describes a man who isn’t being honest — with the world or with himself — about what he really wants.

Bekah is forthright and charming, but even so, some might be tempted to dismiss her words as sour grapes from a woman who cried literal black tears when she was sent home.

But … listen to her words and decide their merit for yourself.

Bekah isn’t revealing any spoilers about the woman Arie chooses, but she has a prediction.

"I don’t see him being with this person for the rest of his life."

Well, the world’s known for a while that Arie changes his mind after the finale and goes back to the runner-up, so … she’s not wrong.

But more to the point, she says that he’s not actually ready for marriage.

"I don’t. I just don’t think that’s what he wants right now, if he’s being honest with himself and honest with the world. I think it’s odd [that he would worry about choosing the wrong person]."

She goes on to point out that Arie’s outspoken indecisiveness is a sign that he’s not cut out for marriage just yet.

"I think that if you fear yourself making a wrong decision that much, you’re probably not very in touch with yourself."

As fans await the finale, Bekah teases that it’s going to defy expectations.

"I genuinely think this is going to be the most dramatic season ever."

The most dramatic finale, at any rate. And one of the most divisive.

"I’m not just being Chris Harrison on that. I think it’s going to be very dramatic and very shocking. And I think people will have very strong emotions about the way that this season ends. That’s for sure."

She thinks that Arie’s fans are going to have some strong, potentially negative opinions about things.

Keep in mind that she has the inside scoop.

"I saw everything play out behind the scenes. You know, you are friends with the people [on the show], so you have people calling you, telling you what’s going on, and it’s rough."

Bekah is still in touch with most of the women from her season, and she says that her first response to hearing what went on after she left was … disbelief.

"At first, I was just like, ‘Oh, my gosh, this cannot actually be happening.’ And then, honestly, my reaction after was like, ‘Oh, well, that kind of makes sense.’"

She’s such a tease, but she has to be — she is contractually prohibited from dropping the spoilers that the Bachelor Nation craves.

"I think Arie has a conflict between how he wants to present himself and what kind of woman he thinks he should be with, and what kind of woman he knows he should be with."

Plenty of guys are in that position — even plenty of guys as old as Arie. But not all of those guys star on The Bachelor.

"And then what he really wants. I mean, you just don’t change dating patterns you had for years and years at the drop of a hat because you’re on a TV show. That doesn’t just change overnight."

Basically, Bekah thinks that Arie likes to be in charge in his relationships and that he’s not prepared to be honest about that or to get married.

Is she right?

She says that these last five hours (yes, it’s a two-day, five-hour finale) could change the way that Arie’s fans feel about him.

"Arie doesn’t have a huge fan base as it is, and I think the small fan base will be affected negatively [by the finale]."

So he’s not doing his brand any favors.

That said, she doesn’t think that he’s a bad person.

"He may be a misguided person, perhaps, but I think he’s a good person, and a fun person."

Honestly, Bekah might be the breakout star of this season of The Bachelor. She’s such a delight.

Watch her interview for yourself. This girl needs to be back on everybody’s televisions. Forever.
