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.
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!
