There the 32-year old got engaged to Kyle Abrams but later developed feelings for Shayne Jansen. Later on, she broke off the engagement with Adams before leaving the show. However, in the reunion of Season 2, she opened up about how she shouldn’t have gotten engaged at all.
Hurley talked about not being ready yet to accept the proposal due to feeling pressurized. She said that ‘It was a people-pleasing moment… I should have never said yes.’ She also went on to say that ‘I could have avoided a whole bunch of drama and mess, 100 percent. And I’m owning that.’
