Naturally, it will all start out with Chris Harrison teasing that this season will be the most dramatic one yet, but with Arie, it just might well be true.
Choosing him for the coveted role of the leading man has proved just as controversial as when Nick Viall Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 chosen, if not more so since Arie hasn't been around the franchise for quite some time.
Well, unless you count all of the Bachelor Nation alums he's dated since his days pursuing Emily Maynard. Like Nick, Arie is in his mids and doesn't blink an eye about admitting he indeed has a past.
That doesn't mean he's offering up any juicy details about that past though, so we're here to reveal a few secrets the new Bachelor doesn't want anyone to know. It's no secret that there are a lot of women in Arie's past, even before he tried to win Emily's heart on The Bachelorette. Before Emily, he had one really serious relationship with a woman named Cassie Harshman.
She and Arie were together for almost two years and actually lived together for a while. Cassie already had two children from a previous relationship, so Arie spent a good bit of time around the kids. They almost had a child together when Cassie got pregnant by Arie, but sadly ended up Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019. Many think Emily was upset in learning that he dated show producer Cassie Lambert, when in fact it was the other Cassie whom he shared a life with for so long.
Despite his recent ventures in real estate, Arie is best known as a race car driver. That means it's his job to drive fast. It would only make sense then that he might tend to drive a little too fast on the main road too, right? Arie has gotten himself into trouble for driving, but it was all due to negligence on his part rather than having a lead foot. If that wasn't enough, he was arrested again just six days later. Yep, that's twice in the span of a week.
This second offense was related to driving as well. Arie was caught driving without a valid registration this time. It's not like he's not the first Bachelor star to have a mug shot, though.
Not too many seasons ago, fans were shocked when the idealistic Ben Higgins told two women he loved them. The worst part of all, perhaps, was the aftermath.
Ben chose Lauren Bushnell, and they got engaged. According to Reality Steve, this isn't the only news Arie is spoiling about the ending.
Steve has photos from social media that may just prove Arie is now engaged to Becca Kufrin. Instagram accounts from both Arie and Becca as well as one of Arie's close friends show familiar photos that just might prove Steve is right. Many men want that coveted role of The Bachelor, but few are chosen. Perhaps nobody wants it as bad as Arie though, Nick Viall included.
Let's flash back to several years ago when he wrote a guest post on his buddy Sean Lowe's blog. Arie told a heartwarming story and then mentioned that he was in talks to become the next Bachelor. He went on to say that he wanted this role to find love, which is what they all say, of course.
Then, he even used the buzzword "journey" to finish it Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019. In the middle of that post, Sean included a link for readers to vote for whom they wanted to be the next Bachelor.
While not all of Bachelor Nation reads Sean's blog, the majority of it does read Twitter. So, to make sure everyone knew Arie wanted the gig, he tweeted out that he would love to share his "journey" with everyone with the hashtag bachelornation.
Then, when Chris Soules landed the job instead, he tweeted again. This next tweet oozed of jealousy: Have fun on the farm people. It's funny how quickly things can change. For instance, one day Dean's America's golden boy and the next he's the biggest "F—boy" this side of Paradise.
Now, Arie, of all people, is the next Bachelor. It may seem like he's wanted this role forever, but no more than a year before he desperately lobbied for it on Twitter and Sean's bloghe told reporters that he wanted to focus on his career.
Arie called racing his "first love" and said that he wanted to move on from the Bachelor franchise. He even went as far as to say that the show "cursed" his love life, making it impossible for him to find a serious relationship. That's a big statement for someone who would announce his candidacy for Bachelor later that same year.
It's rumored that the two have had Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 on-again-off-again romance or flirtation for five years. So, it makes everyone wonder why these two never bit the bullet and just stayed together.
One possibility could be that they both have a reputation of playing the field. Another possibility is that it's all Arie and his unwillingness to settle down. It's been said that Courtney knows Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 will never stay in one place too long and that it would never work for that reason.
His most recent "public" ex unless we consider that the Courtney timeline might have overlapped is Sydney Stempfley.
She is perhaps best known for tweeting that he would have trouble settling on just one woman. As we just mentioned, Arie tends to go back for more with his women. While Courtney seems glad to go another round with him all the time, Sydney wasn't so receptive of his advances. To give a little background, Sydney claims their breakup came out of nowhere not too long before Arie was announced as the next Bachelor.
She was completely surprised when he was named the new leading man of ABC's dating show and understandably hurt. As if that weren't enough, she said that Arie asked if she wanted to hang out with him the weekend before he left to film the show. Sydney declined the offer to see him because he accused her Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 lying to the media. She had wanted closure, but it looks like that will now have to come in the form of him dating dozens of women at once.
At least this time it will be on TV, and the women will know about each other. One of the biggest complaints about reality TV is that it's fake. Most of the time what is shown really happened, just in a different context, thanks to the shifty editing. However, there are some sources who claim Arie and Emily's breakup actually was fake.
While they did breakup, the source claims that it went down differently than what was played out on TV for everyone to see. What is really said to have happened is that Arie broke it off with Emily because he found out that she also invited Jef Holm into the secretive Fantasy Suite.
He had thought he was the only one she awarded this privilege and became very upset and angry with her. Producers didn't expect this reaction from Arie, so they talked him into filming the breakup the way they thought it should go. As soon as Arie was named the next Bachelor, Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 was plenty of people showing both love and hate about this ABC casting decision. One reddit post made its way to Reality Steve, who gladly shared with it with his many followers.
This post was created by a former sorority girl who said that Arie liked to hit the Phoenix area sorority parties and hook up with girls almost half his age. The same source said that Jef Holm accompanied Arie to many of these parties.
That's when Twitter got really interesting as Jef said he had never done such a thing and then called Arie "disgusting. As if that weren't enough, Reality Steve released news years earlier about Arie then 30 hooking up with year-olds. We've already mentioned that Courtney and Arie have this special bond, so to speak, which has kept them coming back to one another for half a decade.
In fact, they were linked romantically up until just a few months before his big Bachelor announcement. That would of course mean that she was the number one side chick in Arie's life.
The two both live in Arizona now, and Courtney is responsible for starting Arie on his new venture in real estate. We have to wonder if she did this as an attempt to make him settle down.
Perhaps the biggest sign that he cares a little too much about Courtney still is that he told her about his Bachelor casting before anyone else. Courtney said that he contacted her on his way to the airport with the big news. Meanwhile, Arie's parents found out with the rest of the world when he showed up on Good Morning America. Courtney also Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 she knew he had been contacted by ABC, so he must still have frequent contact with her.
Remember this is a woman he lived with for a year and even fathered a child with her before she lost the baby.
These two were obviously a committed couple at one point, so it only makes sense that they would take that next big step in their relationship. We would say get married, but in Arie's sleazy world that next big step meant getting couples' tattoos.
Yep, Arie had Cassie's name tattooed on his body and she did the same with his name on her body. She, along with other Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019, gave Arie a call one day to ask about another race car driver whom they were considering for the show. While on the call, Arie made it known that he would like to be considered for a spot as well. They pretty much told him all the slots had been filled but that they would remember that in case something changed.
So, it sounds like the last minute is the best timing for Arie. It's pretty common for people who like to draw a lot of attention to themselves and who seem really confident to secretly deal with insecurity issues. Is emily maynard hookup anyone 2019 reports reveal that the younger Arie is insecure about the fact that he hasn't lived up to the driving potential of his father, who has a much better winning record when it comes to racing.
Known as the Flying Dutchman, Arie Sr. He was also a successful driver in the Netherlands before racing in the US. By comparison, Arie Jr.
