As everyone must know by now, The season 22 Bachelor is Arie Luyendyk Jr. I know what you're thinking... UHHH WHO?! Arie is from Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette which premiered about five-six years ago.
In the end, Emily ended up picking Jef Holm over sweet Arie. Emily and Jef didn't end up working out and split a few months after the show ended, but Emily found love with her now-husband Tyler Johnson. Emily did speak out about Arie becoming the next Bachelor. Here's what she had to say:
"I can’t think of a better person to be The Bachelor than Arie and I’ve been hoping this day would come since Season 8 ended! He’s a gentleman through and through and all the girls on his season are lucky to have him."
She's also tweeted about it.
NOW! Let's meet the ladies of Season 22 of The Bachelor. There are 29 contestants. 4 of which are named Lauren. 3 are real estate agents. 2 Brittany's and Becca's (with different spellings). 1 with my name. 1 (Tia) is friend's with a past contestant from Nick Viall's season, Raven Gates. And a ton of girls whose name's are... unique... D'NYASHA, BIBIANA, MAQUEL, MARIKH, SIENNE.
Come back soon to see my TOP 4 and Final Rose picks for Arie Luyendyk Jr. Make sure you tune in every Monday at 8/7c to see the sweet Arie find his future wife. Everyone deserves love. <3 Good luck, Arie!
