In Blast from the Past News: Arie Luyendyk Jr. Is Named the Next ‘Bachelor’

We've waited, we've hypothesized and now the day has finally arrived—Arie Luyendyk Jr. is the next Bachelor!

The 35-year-old silver fox from Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette appeared on ABC's Good Morning America to reveal he is the next keeper of the roses. 

A quick refresh on what's his face Arie: Luyendyk Jr. is a professional race car driver-cum-real estate agent who was runner-up on Maynard’s season in 2012. Though we haven't seen the Netherlands native on television in years (no Bachelor in Paradise for him, thank you very much), Luyendyk Jr. was a fan favorite during his Bachelorette heyday. He's also an avid traveler and multilingual, which should make him pretty popular with the ladies when the show premieres in January.

Ladies, start your engines. It's going to be a wild season 22 ride.
