We will once again see former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr on a Bachelor show!
Arie was part of the most controversial finale in Bachelor history when he dumped his fiancee, Becca Kufrin, and then proposed to his runner-up, Lauren Burnham on After The Final Rose.
It turns out, Arie will now make an appearance on Becca’s season of The Bachelorette whether the Bachelor Nation wants him to or not.
Becca also sat down with ET where she revealed some more on what’s about to come.
“He will show up, yes. We do have a conversation and you’ll just have to see that unfold. At that point it wasn’t emotional, it was just two adults sitting down, wishing each other the best and talking through our experiences. That was our last conversation we’ve had. I knew that would probably be the last time we had a conversation, and I wish him and Lauren the best.”
Now that she’s headlining her own season, Becca says she realized how hard it is having to break someone’s heart.
“I clearly was heartbroken by Arie and that was hard, but what’s hard for me is having to break somebody [else’s] heart,” she said. “It was difficult being in this position, kind of having that power to say goodbye and to hurt people.”
The week of Becca’s season premiere of The Bachelorette, Arie and Lauren announced they’ve set a wedding date and will marry in January 2019.
Here’s what she had to say about the wedding.
“If they [invited] me I probably would,” she said. “I would want to support them. Lauren and I were friends when we were together. I mean, if there was an open bar and I got that invite — hopefully, I can get a plus one!”
