After weeks of suspense, ABC revealed today that Arie Luyendyk Jr. will be handing out roses on the upcoming season of the dating show.
While Arie wasn’t on the latest season of the Bachelorette, he is not new to Bachelor fans as he competed on Season 8 of The Bachelorette with Emily Maynard in 2012, and was one of the final two men.
Arie is a 36-yr-old race car driver and will be one of the oldest bachelors in the history of the show. A fact that he poked fun at via his Twitter.
