New Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr."s Ex Spills MAJOR Tea About Recent Split & Reveals How She Was "Blindsided" By Casting News!

Sydney Stempfley is speaking her truth. The Bachelor's 22nd season is already causing drama as it seems the hunky new lead, named Arie Luyendyk Jr., is a bit of a fuck boy.

The Bachelor's 22nd season is already causing drama as it seems the hunky new lead, named Arie Luyendyk Jr., is a bit of a fuck boy. Although we already uncovered some telling evidence, the show's latest star's ex is now opening up about her recent relationship with the race car driver/real estate agent. Related: The First Promo With Arie As The Bachelor Is HERE! Oh, and like the rest of America, Arie's former flame was "blindsided" by his Bachelor casting announcement. So how exactly did Sydney and Arie meet?? During a chat with Entertainment Tonight, Miz Stempfley shared: "We started talking in January 2016, just through direct message. We kind of talked off and on just through Instagram, but I landed a job in Scottsdale after graduating [Miami University in Ohio]. I flew out to search for apartments, so I messaged Arie and I told him that I would be in the area and he asked me out on our first date...We hit it off right away and started dating as soon as I moved here. To my knowledge, the relationship was monogamous." Well, well. Looks like even the Bachelor likes to slip into people's DMs. The pair's first date took place in July 2016 and they even celebrated their one-year dating anniversary at the restaurant where they first met up. Things appeared to be serious between the two as they met each other's families. Not to mention, Sydney and Arie were kind of living together too. She continued: "I attended all of his family holidays including Thanksgiving and Christmas... My family was head over heels about him,. They thought he was very charming and very sweet and they really liked him. [Arie and I] traveled together and I went to his races to support him. And he also actually lived with me for a few months while he rented out his house back at the beginning of the year... He typically rented it out during race season, so he was kind of gone a lot. But when he was in town he stayed with me and he asked [if he could]." However, a few weeks before his Bachelor announcement, Luyendyk and Stempfley broke up. Specifically, the duo called it quits on July 31. In regards to their split, Sydney dished: "The night before the breakup, we hung a light fixture together, made beef stew and I slept over. Everything was normal! The next day, we had plans after I got off work. It was just a regular day, so it definitely caught me by surprise. It was over the phone originally, just out of the heat of an argument, just a small argument. But then I went over to his place and we discussed it further and that's kind of when it happened [for good] -- it was in person. It was very emotional. You know, you're trying to get answers and you can't. I couldn't really get a definite answer … I've never seen him cry, ever. I could tell that he was emotional, but there wasn't tears on his end." Oof. Tough break. To make matters worse, the blonde stunner discovered her ex was going to be the next Bachelor thanks to Good Morning America. Apparently, prior to the big reveal, Sydney asked Arie if he was being considered for season 22. She continued: "Backing up, I saw Arie's name being tossed around on Twitter, suggesting he should become the next Bachelor. So I texted him for the first time in awhile, exactly four days before the announcement on Labor Day, and I said, 'Are you awake?' And he called me within a minute or two. I asked him, 'If you were becoming the next Bachelor, would you at least have the decency to tell me?' and he said, 'Yes, of course,' and then proceeded to tell me that he hadn't been contacted by producers, so he doubts that would even be a possibility. So, when I found out he was becoming the next Bachelor a month after our break up, I'm sure you can imagine that I was completely blindsided." Oh, Arie, noooooo. Per Sydney, she "would like to think" The Bachelor had nothing to do with her breakup. Hmmm, we have our doubts about that. Ironically, Stempfley applied to be a contestant on The Bachelor as a way to get over her heartbreak. Arie had not been informed of her decision to apply. The 26-year-old receptionist relayed: "I applied just about a week or so ago actually, not too long ago. I leaned on my girlfriends for support through this time and at one point they suggested that I apply for the show. It had never really crossed my mind but I decided to do [it]. So I actually only submitted an online application. I didn't get around to making a video, so I wasn't far into the process." While ABC has yet to invite Sydney onto the show, she has claimed that she's has thought about whether or not she'd appear on the program now that Arie's the lead. Understandably, the young lady has many questions: "I would need to think it through before coming up with a definite answer. But I do feel like I have questions, of course, [like], 'Is this the reason? [Is this] why you broke up with me?' That's probably my biggest question." At the end of the day, Sydney is just looking for some closure as Arie "led [her] to believe that he loved [her] too. To be fair, the former love birds never actually exchanged "I love yous." Eek. As for the women who plan to vie for Luyendyk's heart, Sydney simply wishes them "good luck" as her ex is a "great guy." Sureeeee he is... [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Becca"s Ex Dramatically Crashed The Bachelor — So Things FINALLY Got Interesting! Recap HERE!

Just when we thought we couldn't give anymore fucks about The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin's ex walked into our lives and gave the show meaning again.

Okay, Perezcious readers, Monday night's episode of the ABC dating competition couldn't have been more savage as Arie Luyendyk Jr. (who we're convinced is just a slice of Wonder Bread brought to life by a witch) told TWO women he loves them, but one jealous former flame showed up to win back his girl. Related: Krystal Nielson Called Arie A 'Needle Dick'! SO. MUCH. DRAMZ. Here's what you missed... Arie and Becca K.'s love story appeared to be flourishing in Peru as they enjoyed a romantic night in the desert together. Although we would've been pissed if our fantasy suite situation was in a sand dune, Becca seemed really into it and told Arie she was in love with him. Luyendyk Jr. said he felt the same way, and even hinted that he could envision himself engaged to the Minnesota native. *Cue the dramatic music* Just as the twosome arrived back from their adventure in the sand, the brunette publicist's smokin' ex, named Ross Jirgl, returned to win back her heart. Before speaking with his ex-girlfriend, Ross did the manly thing and informed Arie that he was there to be Mr. Steal Your Girl. Of course, the bachelor was FUMING at the "balls" Ross had for wanting to win back Becca K. Here's where Arie lost us. Yes, Becca and Ross had been over for a year, but they were on/off for around seven. Could it be safe to assume that Ross thought they were on a break?? Also, unlike the bland AF lead, Ross came in with a pretty genuine speech for Becca K. about how they're soulmates. In eight minutes of screen time, we became more invested in Ross' happiness than Arie's -- and that's saying something. Sadly, Becca K. sent Ross on his way and crawled back to Arie to convince him that their five-ish weeks of romance meant more to her. Girl, get your priorities straight! #JusticeForRoss (Slash can Ross be the next Bachelor??) Another highlight in the episode occurred when Arie got himself into a Ben Higgins situation, meaning, Mr. Luyendyk Jr. told two of his girlfriends, "I love you." Shame, shame. We know your name!! Even though Lauren Burnham barely utters a single word on this show, Arie is convinced that he's in love with her. During their outing, Lauren B. (seriously, are we just watching Ben's season again?) put her walls back up as she was worried about how Arie felt about the remaining contestants. Despite being on a literal dating competition, the blonde beauty demanded: "I need to feel like I'm the only girl that you see." Arie fell for her trap and expressed his love for her. After their time in the fantasy suite, the twosome talked about how they liked their eggs, which was a conversation so boring it was like watching paint dry. BRING BACK ROSS! Unfortunately, for contestant number three, Kendall Long, her time in the fantasy suite with Arie didn't leave an impression as he sent her packing during the rose ceremony. And, honestly, our favorite taxidermy enthusiast dodged a bullet. Despite having crazy hobbies, she seemed well aware that Arie liked her because she was a manic pixie dream girl type. Let's get this girl a ticket to Paradise so she can taxidermy some crabs while looking for love. Now, we know Arie's season has been pretty boring, but we advise you to catch the finale next week. Why?? Well, because, Chris Harrison teased that there is some pretty intense drama ahead... [Image via ABC/Instagram.].....»»

Krystal Nielson Exposed For Calling Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. A "Needle Dick" In Women Tell All Special!

This may be our FAVORITE Women Tell All special to date! On Sunday evening, Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s castoffs gathered together to spill all kinds of tea about their time on The Bachelor.

On Sunday evening, Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s castoffs gathered together to spill all kinds of tea about their time on The Bachelor. While most of the episode consisted of the ladies bickering about glam-shaming and one contestant's age, the truly memorable moment came when it was revealed that one lady called the bachelor a "needle dick." Related: Judge Denies Chris Soules' Motion To Dismiss Felony Charge Oh, we wish we were kidding. So, if you missed the Women Tell All special, strap in for some serious dramz... If you've been watching this season of the ABC dating competition, you are aware that Krystal Nielson was the clear villain during production. And, thanks to new (previously unaired) footage, her status as a reality TV villain will be forever cemented. Let us backtrack to the fiasco that was Arie's group bowling date. In case you forgot, Luyendyk Jr. had Krystal up in arms when he didn't follow through on a promise that the group who won got one on one time with him. During the episode, the ladies accused Krystal of having a colorful outburst -- and now we know EXACTLY what she said. Amid a rant in a bathroom, Krystal's mic caught the following: "Did I mention my life is amazing and awesome? And it's all on hold for what? Some needle dick? I'm sorry, I date men. Not little fancy-pants." DAMNNNN. Sadly, Krystal didn't stop there as she also referred to her peers as "c**ts." Understandably, many of the women went off on Krystal, calling her "fake" and "sociopathic." Caroline Lunny even slammed: "I was right [about you] the whole damn time. You are so mean. You called these women c**ts. How dare you use that word about these people? Because I love and respect all of these women, and that is a disgusting word." Snap! Snap! On why she used such derogatory language, Krystal (lazily) noted: "It was a crazy experience. It really wore on me — it was hard. I stumbled and I fell, for sure. I do wish that I would have been able to step away from focusing so much on Arie. I wish I would have been able to build more friendships." However, after the taping, Krystal seemed less apologetic as she spilled to E! News: "It was when I was really upset. I was really f--king pissed with the whole process. I felt like my teammates and I were very disrespected. And what you hear me saying, it wasn't me, it was my teammates and I." Ehhhh, it sounded like you were the only one being nasty, Krystal. Just sayin'... She continued: "I was in my hotel room having a private conversation with my roommate. I wasn't aware that was captured. And I'm sorry, don't we all vent to our girlfriends? We all say shit. Hello, like, Come! We're all not innocent. I was just micro-phoned and had cameras hiding outside on my balcony, OK? So sorry not sorry!" No wonder Arie doesn't feel badly about their breakup. During their time on the couch, Krystal tried to accuse Arie of being "cold" amid their split. Unsurprisingly, the bachelor was unapologetic for his behavior, as in hindsight it was "pretty appropriate." Rank: The All-Time Worst Bachelors & Bachelorettes! The 36-year-old explained: "In a way, looking back now, I feel like it was pretty appropriate. It just sucks to see how you actually were. I feel like there was a whole other side to you that I didn't see until I watched it back. The comments that you made were not only hurtful to me, they were hurtful to them, and it doesn't make me happy. I feel like maybe I dragged it on way longer than I should have." You tell 'em, bb. In an interview after the taping, Arie also called the NSFW rant "unnecessary." Regardless, it seems Arie has moved on from the drama, as he has already joked about the matter on Twitter: The only thing that kept me from expressing my thoughts on Krystal until now was a $5mil NDA and lots of wine. #glitter #WomenTellAll — Arie Luyendyk Jr. (@ariejr) February 26, 2018 Bachelor in Paradise auditions wait I mean "Women Tell All". 😂 Tune in tonight, good old fashioned drama. #TheBachelor #Kristaaaaaaaaal #Glamshame #Bloopers #MissingKids #YouKnowWhatYouDid pic.twitter.com/eOGGd6Z2Zo — Arie Luyendyk Jr. (@ariejr) February 25, 2018 LOLz. Arie was grilled a fair share himself during the episode, especially by Caroline (girl was on FIRE last night). There has been a mysterious drama that has been teased, so we have a feeling Lunny's rage had something to do with that. Caroline relayed: "This whole time you've said that you are here because you're trying to find a wife. I know what you did, and I don't know how you could do that. I just really don't understand. But I really hope you found what you're looking for." Juicy stuff. Other episode highlights included Bekah Martinez calling her mom on speakerphone to address her missing status, Chris Harrison teasing that she'll be heading to Bachelor In Paradise, Tia Booth making a play for the Bachelorette title by weeping over Arie, etc. For more Bachelor, be sure to tune in Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. Takes One Contestant Home To Meet The Family As Feuds Brew Inside The Mansion — Full Bachelor Recap HERE!

Who knew Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor was going to offer some of the best reality TV moments -- in just the second ep! So much drama already! Instead of kicking off his journey with the usual group date, the former race-car driver decided to whisk Becca K. away (on a motorcycle, no less) for a day of being styled by Rachel Zoe in Malibu. Even though they hadn't spent much time together, Arie gifted Becca several of Zoe's designs, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, and jewelry from Neil Lane! Um, yes please. Later in the evening, Becca wore one of her new outfits for dinner, where she opened up about losing her father to brain cancer -- something that brought her closer to the rest of her family. Arie gave her a rose after realizing there's obviously a connection here. We don't hate it. Related: Get Ready For The Bachelor Winter Games! His is second one-on-one date, Arie decided to take Krystal home to Scottsdale, Arizona to not only get an inside look at his day-to-day life (and also the Pizza Hut), but to meet his parents, brother, and sister-in-law! On the first date! Arie appreciated that Krystal opened up about having a pretty tough upbringing, and then the two danced the night away to Connor Duermit. More on Krystal later. Next up was the group date with 15 women. Fif-teen. Because we can't get enough car references this season already, Arie had the contestants (Maquel, Marikh, Tia, Valerie, Annaliese, Lauren G., Kendall, Bekah M., Jenny, Seinne, Jenna, Caroline, Brittany, Bibiana ,and Chelsea) participate in a demolition derby where they basically just crashed their cars into each other repeatedly until the last woman standing. Annaliese was triggered by a traumatic bumper car experience in her childhood... which most of the women found annoying because Arie was her shoulder to cry on. Classic move. Seinne ended up winning the trophy, and the rose, and she's already one of our favorites. Highly-educated, well-traveled, humble, and gorgeous! She actually might be way too good for Arie, who even admitted: "I barely graduated high school and worked at Pizza Hut." It's important to note here Bibiana was already starting to have a meltdown on the group date for not getting any alone time with the leading man. Case in point: she stormed off without letting the cameras follow her. Now for the rose ceremony. This is where things get really good. Krystal (the breathy talker who already has a rose from her one-on-one) interrupted other women still vying for a rose not once, but TWICE. And she really set herself up by cutting off the already-heated Bibiana during her chance to talk to Arie. To make matters worse, after Krystal spoke with Arie for a second time, she went and sat right next to Bibiana who went OFF saying basically everything that everyone else in the house was thinking. Bibiana not-so-kindly let Krystal know she didn't appreciate her "fake" tone and that she was done with her. Please, ABC, for the love of God, keep Bibiana around just for interactions like this. Ultimately, Arie decided to send home Jenny, Valerie,and Lauren G. Jenny skipped saying goodbye to Arie, and when he went after her to console her, she said: "I'm not sad about you. I'm sad about leaving my new friends." Y'all. Hahaha. What she meant was: "I'm not sad about you. I'm sad about not making it long enough to get a Fab Fit Fun box." So good. Tune in next week Monday at 8 p.m. on ABC for hopefully more trash entertainment like this! [Image via ABC.].....»»

On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the remaining contestants jetted off to Paris where ultimately three women were sent home after two one-on-one dates, an awkward AF two-on-one date, and a Moulin Rouge group date. Paris is for wannabe lovers! First up was Lauren B.'s chance to get some alone time with ABC's leading man. Nothing much to report here considering Lauren didn't speak practically the entire time. Arie, desperate for her to like him, started word vomiting and ended up telling her his ex-girlfriend suffered a miscarriage. Related: Arie Jokes About Bekah Martinez's Missing Persons Mix Up! Arie ends up giving Lauren the rose, which we're still baffled by considering that was the most painful "interaction" to watch. On the group date, Arie takes Becca K., Seinne, Bekah M., Tia, Chelsea, and Jenna to the Moulin Rouge, where they dance around in thongs -- something Arie insists is "definitely for the women"... Mmhmm. Bekah M. ends up getting the group date rose, which means she got to perform on stage with Arie after the cocktail party. Cue: jealousy from all the other women. For the main attraction -- AKA the two-on-one date with Krystal and Kendall -- the season's villain desperately tried to get back in Arie's good graces. She does this by throwing Kendall under the bus (classic), but Kenny doesn't give in. When they go low, we go high!!! Kendall ends up getting the rose, which means Krystal is going to haunt Arie forever home. Bless. On the final one-on-one, Arie takes Jacqueline shopping after his vintage car breaks down in the parking lot. He admits he's been "intimidated" by her because he thinks she's too smart for him -- to which she responds: "Why don't you think you would gravitate towards somebody intelligent?" Burn. After discussing (and not really agreeing) on plans for the future, Jacqueline gets the rose. During the rose ceremony, Arie sends Chelsea and Jenna home -- and just like that, they're off to Tuscany! Did U like this episode?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!! [Image via ABC.].....»»

Last night on The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. prepared to meet the families of the final four contestants during a round of hometown dates. On a scale of 1 to having a complete meltdown, he was at about an 8 -- his words, not ours! That's also how we felt watching him and Kendall play with dead animals during their visit to a taxidermy shop in her hometown of El Lay. Related: Bachelor/ette Couples That Have ACTUALLY Made It! Although Arie called their activity of stretching limp rat skin over a wooden form "some Silence Of The Lambs stuff," Kendall had a much more romantic view: "In a way, taxidermy is like a perfect relationship, because it's something that's going to last forever." Wow. A thought. Later on the date, Arie met Kendall's mom, dad, twin sister Kylie (yes, they are Kendall and Kylie), and her younger brother. Honestly, the conversation between Kendall and Kylie is one of the most self-aware discussions we've seen on this show. There's a sentence we thought we'd never say. For the second hometown, Arie heads to Weiner, Arkansas to meet Raven Tia's fam. The southern belle picks an activity Arie will love: racing cars at Crowley's Ridge Raceway. That evening, the family gives ABC's leading man a warm welcome (after Tia's brother questions his player ways) and they cheers with cocktail wieners/pigs in a blanket! Before Arie heads out to meet his next lady, Tia lets him know she's "in love" and not just "falling in love." Noted. Now Arie is in Minnesota, where he's meeting Becca's family, including her mom and Uncle Gary, who became like a second father to her after her father passed away. He ultimately seems to get a stamp of approval (kinda), after her mom says she would trust whatever decision Becca makes. Finally, Arie goes to Virginia Beach to meet Lauren's extremely conservative family -- and it's hella awkward! Lauren's dad Dave makes Arie sweat (literally). Dave threatens to "kill" Arie if he ever hurts Lauren, but ultimately says he trusts her decision in the end. Heading into the Rose Ceremony back at the Bachelor mansion, Arie seems super unsure about who he is going to pick. In fact, he pulls Kendall aside for one last chat before making a final decision moments later. He ultimately decides to send Tia home after feeling like there's just "something missing." Cue her crying in the limo. Don't worry, girl. There's always Paradise. Next week, we have Women Tell All (yassss) on Sunday before a new episode with the final three on Monday. Oh, yeah and the Winter Games Tuesday and Thursday this week. Are y'all getting enough of this franchise yet??? [Image via ABC.].....»»

Part One Of The Bachelor Finale Was A Fucking Disaster — Recap HERE

Shame on Arie Luyendyk Jr. and shame on ABC. During part one of The Bachelor finale on Monday, the former race car driver ended his relationship with Lauren Burnham (right after telling her he loves her) during the final rose ceremony in Peru, and got down on one knee and proposed to Becca Kufrin. After several weeks [...] Shame on Arie Luyendyk Jr. and shame on ABC. During part one of The Bachelor finale on Monday, the former race car driver ended his relationship with Lauren Burnham (right after telling her he loves her) during the final rose ceremony in Peru, and got down on one knee and proposed to Becca Kufrin. After several weeks of engaged bliss, Arie took a camera crew to an unsuspecting Becca to break up with her and tell her he was leaving her for his runner-up, Lauren. During the last 45 minutes of the three hour special, we had to uncomfortably watch Becca get her heart broken in what the network says was completely unedited, raw footage. And every time Becca told Arie to "just leave," he just lingered around while cameras were shoved down Becca's throat. Related: Corinne Olympios Has Insight Into Tori Spelling's Apparent Breakdown Arie told Becca during his breakup speech: "The reality of it is that being with you, although it's been everything that I wanted, I still think about her. And I think you sense that. I think for me, the more I hung out with you, the more I felt like I was losing the possibility of maybe reconciling things with Lauren." To which she responded: "Are you fucking kidding me?" The episode ended with a brief interview between Becca and Chris Harrison, during which she said it was "brutal" to watch it all back: "When it all happened, I feel like I kind of blacked out. I cried for probably four days straight I am angry at times. I grieved the loss of that relationship and the future that I thought we were gonna have. I am angry at times. I feel betrayed a lot of the time just because I feel like I was lied to for so long." The truth of the matter is that Arie should have never proposed in the first place, especially when he told Lauren moments before that he was in love with her AND clearly wasn't ready to go all in with Becca. THEN, he should have given Becca the common courtesy of not completely blindsiding her with a breakup in front of camera crews. Trash. ALL OF IT IS TRASH. Anywho, Becca has since started her campaign to be The Bachelorette broken her silence ahead of Tuesday night's finale, talking to People about everything that went down between her and Arie. Turns out, Arie had been liking several of Lauren's photos on Instagram while he was still engaged to Becca. He even gave Lauren a call "to apologize" for how they ended, but ultimately decided he wanted to abandon Becca's ship. Why didn't we get "raw, unedited" footage of THAT conversation, huh ABC??? Becca told the outlet of the heartbreaking split: "He's a good person, I don't think he's a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way. But it's just the result of his actions. At the end of the day, I don't think he thought through everything of how ending things with Lauren would be, how being engaged to me would be and what breaking up with me and going back to her would be. I don't think he thought it through, but I don't think he did it maliciously to break my heart." The 27-year-old added of the morning she got engaged in Peru before the final rose ceremony: "That morning, I woke up and I was very oddly calm. I just felt it in my heart. I just knew it was me — that him and I were going to be together. There were still nerves, but I never was too anxious or worked up about it because I just felt it was right with us ... I felt like my heart was going to burst because it was just so filled with love to be with him and share that news with our friends and family. There was so much excitement and joy. It was an overabundance." Becca revealed it wasn't until the newly-engaged duo got back to the States that Arie admitted he still had feelings for her 26-year-old competitor: "I never thought for a million years that once the going started to get tough that he would throw in the towel and jump ship and say, 'Oh sorry, I changed my mind.' I didn't think we were at that point whatsoever." And reflecting on the moment he broke the news: "I thought we were just going to have a nice romantic weekend. The night before he had turned off his phone, which I thought was strange, and it wasn't until the moment when he walked into the house when he didn't have his suitcases with him, I was like What's going on?" Obviously, it wasn't fun being dumped on national television: "It was embarrassing the way he broke up with me with the full cameras and crew around. There was a better and more tactful way to do it. A breakup is hard enough, and to have it all filmed and have to re-watch it and know that people all across the country are watching you get your heart broken, it is embarrassing. It's not fun. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. It was like a slap in the face. I wish he would have been more honest with me. From the questions I was asking, I would have appreciated the full truth. I was obviously blindsided like, Did I miss something? I was asking you these things and you didn't tell me. What did I miss? How could I have not seen any of this to the extent of how it played out?" While Becca credits Arie for being "open and honest in the fact that he had told Lauren he loved her too," she says that "red flags were being raised" when the series premiered January 1: "At that point, I knew that he had liked some of her Instagram photos so we had a conversation about it. And that was the first time that he really threw it out that he should have a conversation with her and just apologize for how things had ended with her, that he had felt guilty ... He had told me, ‘I still have feelings for her, I'm trying to work through them.' He said it was hard for him to always talk about it in interviews with the press, to relive that relationship. He said he couldn't close that chapter until everything was said and done and the finale aired. That whole time we were just looking at the end goal of this week to finally be done with that and move on and be together and work through it as a team." Becca couldn't understand why her fiancé continued liking his ex's pics online, saying she "definitely went through all of the emotions. I was upset, I was angry at times, I felt betrayed. When I started noticing those little things like the Instagram likes, I was trying to come at it from a relationship standpoint to compromise and talk through it": "I would question if he was ready to be engaged and if he was ready at that point to get down on one knee and if not, I'd still stand by him and want to work through it. But of course I'm going to go through all the emotions. I'm a girl, I'm a human being. There was still jealousy there. You're engaged to me, why are you liking another person's photos or still wanting to contact them?" Um. Yeah. WHY, Arie?? Related: How ABC Dealt With The Bachelor Surprise Ending! Becca says she "can't fault" Arie for choosing Lauren, she just wishes he never proposed to her: "I wish he hadn't proposed. At that point I loved him and I wanted to be with him. Even if on that last day, he said, ‘I'm still uncertain, this is a big move, I don't want to get down on one knee unless I'm 1000 percent sure, but I still want to be with you,' I would have been fine with that. I would have been like, ‘I love you, I still want to be with you.' I even asked him a couple times if he felt like he was certain like that was the right move at that point and every time he said, ‘I'm happy with the decision and I feel confident in us.' From what he was telling me and from even that grand gesture, I thought nobody would do that unless they did feel 100 percent confident." She added: "He did get down on one knee, he did propose to me, he did say, ‘I'm committing to you, I choose you every day.' That's something that I only wanted to happen once in my life, and it's been robbed from me, and I can never have that one time moment again. And the second part is that he lied or hid his true feelings and emotions for weeks and weeks and weeks. The number one thing that I value in a relationship is honesty and loyalty, and I feel like I wasn't given that." Ultimately, she's forgiven him and she's ready to move on with her life (AKA probably be the next leading lady): "At the end of the day I wouldn't' change the experience because I met so many amazing people and I fell in love and I had this great experience and memories. I'm still going to feel a sense of compassion for him because I did love him but at this point, I want him to be happy, I want to be done and not have to worry about them anymore. They're going to be together and do their thing. I wanted to move on and have my person that I can focus on and live my life with. At the end of the day, I do forgive him." Good riddance, TBH! Be sure to catch the final two hours to see Lauren, Becca, and Arie all reunite Tuesday night at 8 p.m. EST. [Image via ABC.].....»»

The two just got engaged during Tuesday’s After The Final Rose special (March 6), and are opening up about their forthcoming nuptials on Wednesday (March 7). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Arie Luyendyk Jr. “We want to get married soon, and we also talked about eloping,” said Lauren in a teleconference, according to People. “We’ve talked about running away to Vegas,” Arie added. “We’re talking about an evening wedding or a sunset wedding. Lighting is important. Lots of flowers. We talked a little bit about maybe doing a TV wedding if that works with our timeline,” he added. There is one person who won’t be invited – the person he broke off his engagement with: “Becca, she’s not invited,” he said. “We’re so ready for this. Lauren told me I’m four months late on this proposal, and I wanted to give it to her and I wanted everyone at home to share in it,” he said. The two say the wedding will happen sometime this year. Lauren will move to Scottsdale to be with Arie, and is planning to work with him in real estate. “We’re both very excited about marriage and starting a family,” she said. Arie previously proposed to Becca during the final rose ceremony. Weeks later, Arie decided to break up with Becca and did it in front of the cameras, causing plenty of backlash......»»

Bachelor Contestants Bekah M. & Kendall Are STILL Dishing Dirt On "Inappropriate" Arie Luyendyk Jr.!

Even though The Bachelor may be over, we're learning more and more from the girls about just how creepy and "inappropriate" Arie Luyendyk Jr. was both during the show — and after taping! There's a new interview out this morning in Vulture with contestants Bekah Martinez and Kendall Long, and both do not hesitate AT ALL [...] Even though The Bachelor may be over, we're learning more and more from the girls about just how creepy and "inappropriate" Arie Luyendyk Jr. was both during the show -- and after taping! There's a new interview out this morning in Vulture with contestants Bekah Martinez and Kendall Long, and both do not hesitate AT ALL to point the finger at Arie and dig up some more dirt on the man who infamously went back and chose Lauren Burnham to be his love after first getting engaged to -- and then running away from -- Becca Kufrin. Related: Another Bachelor Alum Is Going HARD After Arie's Absurd Behavior! Speaking about Arie's "inappropriate" behavior perhaps the loudest this time around is Bekah M., the now-24-year-old who was repeatedly questioned as to whether she was too young to be on the show, and too young to get married. She's always balked at that suggestion, and now, she's balking at Arie in general, telling Vulture (below) that the race car driver was STILL sending her direct messages while the show was airing: "I wasn't the only contestant he was DMing while the show was airing. It wasn't just me and Lauren, there were other women as well. C'mon, dude. You're 36, you know better. You're not oblivious and you know how relationships work ... And at the time he DMed me, it was close to the episode when I got sent home. It was us passionately making out and discussing our relationship. And this is the time when you're like, Thinking of you, hope you're doing well! I guarantee Lauren didn't know he was messaging me. Lauren doesn't like me." Kendall backed Bekah up, too. Related: Becca Kufrin Has SO Much Hope For What's To Come! The taxidermy enthusiast added (below): "The fact that he switched to Lauren and was still talking to other girls, it's not great. I don't want to name the other girls he's talking to. I don't know if they're continuing talking to him now, but before there were some." Not great, indeed. And as for Lauren herself, Bekah revealed that the eventual "winner" actually did have a great personality -- it just never really came through on camera. The 24-year-old said (below): "Lauren was extremely goofy and extremely fun. When we were still at the mansion, we were roommates, and she was literally wearing a fake butt twerking upside down on the side of the wall and belting out Moulin Rouge! lyrics on the balcony with me. But as she developed more feelings for Arie, she became more closed off and guarded and insecure. I don't mean 'insecure' in a negative way, but you are competing with multiple other women. Of course, if you care about someone, you're going to get insecure about yourself in the face of so many other relationships. I wish they gave her more dimensions on camera, but the thing is, she didn't show her dimension on camera. I don't think they had much to work with." And Kendall filled in some blanks there about Arie and Lauren's true love connection, too (below): "She showed a lot of emotion on camera that I didn't expect. But she was really guarded. She doesn't seem like the kind of person that would want to have her love life on television. She was definitely there for love. She wasn't there to sell hair gummies on Instagram." But haven't we ALL wanted to use the show as a stepping-off point to sell hair gummies on Instagram??? Let he among us who hasn't.... LOLz!!! Related: 5 Fast Facts About Becca Kufrin!

Arie Luyendyk Jr. Says Ciao To Three Women In Italy Before The Bachelor Heads To Hometowns — Recap HERE!

It's getting down to the wire! Three women did not get roses last night on The Bachelor — including Jacqueline, Seinne, and Bekah M. — who will unfortunately not get the opportunity to bring Arie Luyendyk Jr. home to meet their families. Arie took both Becca K. and Lauren B. on individual one-on-one dates, during which he [...] It's getting down to the wire! Three women did not get roses last night on The Bachelor -- including Jacqueline, Seinne, and Bekah M. -- who will unfortunately not get the opportunity to bring Arie Luyendyk Jr. home to meet their families. Arie took both Becca K. and Lauren B. on individual one-on-one dates, during which he told both he was falling in love with them. His connection with Becca seems pretty obvious, but people are left confused by his relationship with Lauren. Regardless, he tells Lauren he's "falling so deeply in love with you," and refers to her family as his future family. Serious business. Related: Rachel Lindsay Blames Trump For Nick Viall Dumping Her On the third one-on-one, Arie failed to find a deep emotional connection with Seinne after the two spent the day being grilled by a local Italian family. She let him know that if he had opened up to her, maybe they would have progressed further. Honestly, she's too good for him anyway. Jacqueline left on her own accord after having "swirling doubts" about her relationship with Arie. Even though she was "outrageously attracted" to him, at the end of the day she wasn't ready to introduce him to her family. Fair enough. Finally, Arie took Tia, Kendall, and Bekah M. on a three-on-one date, where Tia's claws came out and she told Arie that the 22-year-old Bekah wasn't ready for serious commitment. Turns on the southern belle has a dark side... Ultimately Arie eliminated Bekah, but we think she's doing just fine as she's making the press rounds -- and even admitted she wished Peter Kraus had been ABC's leading man. Watch her on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America, where she explains her breakup with Arie and being reported a missing person (below)!!

One Contestant Is Playing Arie Luyendyk Jr. "Like A Fiddle" While Another Woman Shocks The Bachelor With Her Real Age — Recap HERE!

Another week, another episode of The Bachelor. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the remaining ladies vying for his heart packed their bags and travel to South Lake Tahoe, Nevada for two one-on-dates and one group date. This was the first episode of the season where we truly wondered if the 36-year-old leading man can carry the entire [...] Another week, another episode of The Bachelor. Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the remaining ladies vying for his heart packed their bags and travel to South Lake Tahoe, Nevada for two one-on-dates and one group date. This was the first episode of the season where we truly wondered if the 36-year-old leading man can carry the entire season once all the crazies are gone -- but we'll let time be the judge of that. First up was Sienne's one-on-one date. The two went parasailing (as the contestants watched via binoculars) before having a dinner later that evening. To be completely honest, the well-traveled Yale graduate is way too good for Arie and 100% too good for reality TV. We said it. Related: January Jones Is Reportedly Dating Nick Viall! Sienne carried the entire conversation like the queen she is, and we couldn't tell if Arie was into it or intimidated... but he was QUIET. Anyway, he ended up giving her the rose after she admitted that she was skeptical of the process because "you don't see love stories with girls that look like me." Sienne for Bachelorette!!! Too soon? The next day, Chelsea, Krystal, Becca K., Marikh, Ashley, Jacqueline, Jenna, Tia, Kendall, Lauren, Brittany, and Caroline were gifted the opportunity to go eat bugs and drink urine in the woods with Arie. Yippee. They got survivalist tips from a retired Green Beret Combat Commander in the U.S. Army Special Forces before they split into three groups and somehow found their way to a hot springs. Classic Bachelor move. While in the hot spring, Arie puts his arm around Krystal -- who naturally reads wayyy too much into the situation. Speaking of Krystal, she spent the entire day in interviews talking shit about the other women. As you can see her insecurities come to the forefront, she wonders aloud: "I'm not sure what I'm going to say [to Arie]. But whatever I do, I have a feeling it's going to be perfect." Later on the group date, Krystal confronts Tia and Caroline about... we're still not really sure... and you can see the women in the house are starting to lose their patience with her. Tia ends up getting the group date rose after a mini-breakdown about how hard this process is. Works every time. The last one-on-one date went to Bekah M. The two went horseback riding before making out a ton in a hot tub. You can tell there's an obvious physical connection, and later at dinner Arie stumbled around trying to figure out if she's ready for something more. Cue: Bekah revealing her age. She's 22. He's 36. Upon hearing the news, Arie can't hide is concern that she may not be in the place to settle down, telling her: "I'm 36 — things have just slowed down so much for me. I enjoy waking up with the sun, which I never enjoyed five years ago. I'm in a different place than I was in my late 20s — so my fear with you is that you might be where I was in my 20s. I think it's a valid fear." He later said in an interview: "Twenty-two years old is so damn young. I'm just thinking of all the problems that could come up. I could see myself falling in love with her, but I also don't want to get through this whole thing, be at the end, and then afterwards have her realize, ‘I'm not really ready for marriage.' At 22, does she really know? I think we might be too far apart. I just want to settle down, I want to have a family. I want to share that with somebody. I'm not here for a 22-year-old girlfriend. I'm here to find a wife. Now that I know that she's 22, everything is flipped upside down, and I don't know what to do." Regardless of all these doubts, he gives her the rose anyway. Dun dun dun. There wasn't a rose ceremony last night, but Krystal did manage to annoy everyone one last time by pulling Arie aside for a pointless chat right before he started calling names. Insecurities are a bitch. Anyway, he sent Caroline and Brittany packing, leaving 12 women left in the house. Stay tuned next to week to see if we have to watch anymore of Krystal! Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. [Image via ABC.].....»»

In case you missed it, the race car driver turned real estate agent dumped Lauren and asked Becca to marry him in The Bachelor finale. However, after some time, Luyendyk Jr. realized he made a mistake and ran back into the blonde stunner's (very open) arms. The twosome proceeded to get engaged during the tense After The Final Rose special. Related: ABC Announces The Next Bachelorette! And it seems they are already eyeing the wedding altar. After getting down on one knee, Arie told People: "We're so ready for this. Lauren told me I'm four months late on this proposal, and I wanted to give it to her and I wanted everyone at home to share in it." We really wish you didn't, but, whatever. As for Miz Burnham, she said she "had an inkling" that Arie would pop the question during the live reunion taping. The 26-year-old gleefully shared: "Arie's not good at keeping secrets. He didn't tell me, but he gave me hints!" In regards to the shade Arie and ABC have received for the way the dumping was handled, it seems that Lauren is standing by her man AND the network. She added: "We don't really care what anyone else has to say about it." In fact, Lauren and Arie are already too busy planning their upcoming nuptials, which they say will take place THIS YEAR. Well, that's fast. Oh, and apparently, they've already considered a televised ceremony. Ugh. On their future wedding, the 36-year-old spilled: "We've already been planning it, even before the engagement. We want to do it quickly!" You really think that's a wise idea, bud?? You rushed into your first engagement -- and you saw how that turned out... Regardless, the season 22 lead is totally at peace with how things worked out: "Love is not always perfect. Everyone finds each other in a different way. It's not always a fairy tale, but as long as Lauren and I have each other, we're happy." Huh. We guess, live your best lives, you two!

On Monday, ABC rang in the new year by premiering Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor -- and even though we're still not sure that he was the better pick than Peter Kraus, the night did bring some noteworthy moments! The two-hour episode kicked off with a segment reminding viewers who Arie is: a race-car driver/realtor who was dubbed the "kissing bandit" on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette five years ago. Now, he has a head full of salt and pepper hair and is ready to ~find love~. Shortly after, we get intro packages to a handful of the women -- which felt pretty boring considering most of them work in real estate and don't seem to have any knowledge of Arie other than the fact that he's 36 years old, so he must be ready for love. Related: Chris Harrison Says Contestants 'Fell Very, Very Quickly' For Arie! We also got to see Sean and Catherine Lowe, who returned to our screens with their young son Samuel to give their pal some advice before meeting the women. Single mom Chelsea became an immediate villain after she was shown talking shit about all the other women behind their backs. But don't worry, she's totally not "rude" or "competitive by nature." Whatever she was doing (AKA pulling Arie aside twice before some women got to talk to him once) worked because she got the highly-coveted First Impression rose. Here are a few other highlights from the first night (below)! -- There are no less than FOUR Laurens. Last initials not important yet. -- Tia is friends with Bachelor alum, Raven Gates, with whom she shares the same Arkansas accent. -- Krystal from San Diego is possibly sedated. -- Bekah M.'s age isn't listed for some reason by her name, but she appears to be 22 after further investigation. She is also the first short-haired contestant. Rock that pixie, bb! -- Becca K. scored some points by having Arie get down on one knee during her introduction. In it to win it! -- Brittany T. got the first peck after a mini race, but Chelsea swooped in for the first real make out sesh. -- By the end of the night, Arie got 29 women down to 21 sending Amber, Jessica, Brittane J., Ali, Bri, Lauren J., Nysha, and Olivia home. You can catch the next episode of The Bachelor on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. EST. Did U watch the premiere?? Let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)!! [Image via ABC.].....»»

In fact, the new Bachelorette has already put her heartbreak behind her -- but it wasn't an easy task. In case you SOMEHOW missed the explosive Bachelor season 22 finale, Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to the Minnesota based publicist, only to turn around and dump her for runner-up Lauren Burnham. Related: Jilted Bachelor Winner Melissa Rycroft SLAMS Arie! To make matters worse, Luyendyk Jr.'s cringeworthy dumping of Kufrin took place in front of a CAMERA CREW. On Thursday, Becca's chat with Good Morning America aired, where she addressed confronting Arie on the After the Final Rose special and dished about what's to come for her love life. On why she agreed to sit down with the race car driver turned real estate agent, the 27-year-old explained: "Just to get closure, to move on. I asked what I wanted to ask. And just to wish him the best and let him know that I forgive him for everything. He followed his heart and I understand that... I hope, after everything, that he just holds [Lauren's] heart in the highest regard. And takes everything in the situation aside and just focuses on her and that relationship and puts it all out there for her ... I don't want to say everything happens for a reason, but I truly think it does." Well said. Thankfully, the brunette stunner has "bigger and better things" to look forward to now that she's sans the grey haired fuckboy. On her upcoming Bachelorette stint, which premieres May 28, Becca shared: "[I have] so much hope for what's to come. My heart is in the right place, I know what I want. I'm ready for it. I'm ready for it. I've been in love in the past. I was in love with Arie. I know I'll find it again." YES. YOU. WILL. GIRL. It probably helps that Becca has all of Bachelor nation in her corner. Not to mention, even politicians are standing by Becca, as Minnesota Representative Drew Christensen authored a bill banning Arie from the state. LOLz! We're happy Kufrin is moving forward with her life, especially since Luyendyk Jr. revealed the break up with Becca would've happened "regardless." He told Entertainment Tonight: "For me, I had one foot in that relationship the entire time, and that wasn't fair to Becca. I feel like breaking off that relationship was the right thing to do, despite if Lauren would have taken me back. It would have happened regardless." Ugh. He just sucks, right? #TeamBeccaKForLife!

As we reported, on Thursday morning, GMA broke the news that the next Bachelor is Bachelorette season 8 runner-up Arie Luyendyk Jr.! After the shocking announcement, fans were puzzled as to why Bachelorette season 13 runner-up and fan favorite Peter Kraus wasn't chosen. Related: Who Is The New Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr.? According to ET Online, the silver-haired hunk was in the running, but things changed at the last minute. Last Thursday, GMA tweeted they were going to reveal the next Bachelor "tomorrow." Minutes later, the tweet was deleted. As seen here: According to an insider, in the past week, the business owner was on "lockdown" which means he was in the final stages of negotiations. "Peter had been on lockdown for the past week or so, even friends couldn't get a hold of him." But on Wednesday, hours before the actual reveal, a source said: "It's not looking good for Peter [to be the Bachelor] right now." The insider says Kraus accepted the role, but then wanted more out of ABC. After that, the network "lost interest" and went with Arie. While fans are disappointed with the ultimate decision, Rachel Lindsay's ex is "doing fine." "Being the Bachelor wasn't something he was building his whole world around... The major desire wasn't there for him... Peter wasn't in this for fame or fortune... He wouldn't have been the Bachelor just for a platform, and his stance hadn't really changed when it came to an engagement." Now that Luyendyk is confirmed, production is eagerly working on the next season. "Producers feel like Peter was a great guy, but Arie is really genuine too. Now the focus is on casting the women... Casting is still underway, and now women know it's Arie, so they can really decide for themselves if they want to pursue him." Late Thursday, Peter posted a touching message on Instagram expressing his gratitude toward ABC and the Bachelor franchise for showing him "glimpses of a life I never once dreamed that I could have." Read his full post (below)! #tbt to the most incredible journey of this life time that has now officially come to an end today. As I sit here writing this, I struggle to hold back the tears as I am overcome with emotion one last time. First and foremost.. @therachlindsay , there are so very many things that I've wished I could say to you since the day we parted ways in Spain, but for everyone's sake, I'll keep it short... You gave me a chance and all that I can say is thank you. I have a heart filled with love for you now and always and wish you nothing but the best in your life and love ahead. ABC, you saw something in me, but something held me back. You treated me with such love and kindness and showed me glimpses of a life I never once dreamed that I could have. I will be forever humbled and grateful and will always look back at these last 6 months with an ear to ear smile, knowing that this has truly been a very special life indeed. Upon leaving the @bacheloretteabc I was asked, "what did you learn about yourself during this process?" And at the time I naively said "nothing that I can think of." Now... looking back... I realize I learned one of the single greatest teachings of my life; When you let uncertainty or fear guide your decisions, you risk missing out on what could potentially be the greatest opportunity of a life time. So live dangerously, live without the fear of the unknown, and continue to live and love with a heart that is truly open to anything. #thankyou #lovealwaysA post shared by Peter J Kraus (@peterkrauswi) on Sep 7, 2017 at 2:08pm PDT [Image via Peter Krause/Instagram.].....»»
