Someone hand us a checkered flag, because new Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. is revving our engines with season 22’s first promo.
A 15-second teaser premiered on last night’s Bachelor in Paradise finale, and all we can say is vroom, vroom. The promo opens with Luyendyk Jr., a former professional race car driver, walking down a racetrack while the camera pans up his body. Tweets telling us how excited we should be (meh...) and how he’s a good kisser (tell us more...) appear across the screen until we come face-to-face with his piercing eyes. Alas, the Bachelor peels out while an announcer promises, “Hearts will race.” (OK, cool your engines with the double entendres, ABC.)
Let’s hope when it premieres in Jan. 2018 that season 22 is as racy as ABC promises.
