She may not have won the heart of Arie Luyendyk Jr. (ugh), but Prior Lake's Becca K. has won the hearts of America after Monday's "Bachelor" finale.

Luyendyk's jilting (ugh) two weeks after proposing to Rebecca Kufrin has made him a pariah in Minnesota.

But it's making Kufrin a hero to the rest of America, who in the wake of Monday's shocking turn of events opened their wallets to her.

And why? So she can drown her sorrows, naturally, with users of digital transfer app Venmo finding Kufrin's profile and sending her some cash.

"You're an absolute class act and I can't wait for you to be the Bachelorette we all deserve," Allin Skiba wrote. "Here's a happy hour margarita on me!"

"Get you some wine because Arie sucks and you deserve the world," Alicia Volpe added.

In the wake of her trauma, Kufrin told People tha Luyendyk (ugh) is a "good person" and "can't fault him" for not wanting to be in a relationship when they have feelings for someone else.

But she added: “A breakup is hard enough, and to have it all filmed and have to re-watch it and know that people all across the country are watching you get your heart broken, it is embarrassing. It’s not fun. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It was like a slap in the face."
