It appears we have another Ben Higgins on our hands, Bachelor Nation.
In a recent interview, Arie Luyendyk Jr. opened up about the upcoming season of The Bachelor and revealed he made the same mistake Higgins made in season 20: He told two women, “I love you.”
Luyendyk Jr. said, “I really had strong feelings for more than one person. I’m very happy, but it wasn’t without hard times.”
On season 20, Higgins infamously confessed his feelings to both Lauren B. and eventual Bachelorette Jojo right before his proposal, which resulted in a seriously entertaining finale (for us viewers, at least).
Also similar to Higgins’ experience, Luyendyk Jr. went on to admit that it made the end of the season “pretty difficult.” Chris Harrison must be proud.
The Bachelor premieres on ABC on January 1, 2018.
