Bekah Martinez sat down with Entertainment Tonight’s Lauren Zima to chat about Arie Luyendyk Jr and his final pick.
“I don’t see him being with this person for the rest of his life,” Bekah told ET.
“No, [I don’t think he’s ready]. I think I’m more ready for marriage than Arie is, quite honestly. I don’t think Arie knows what he wants, and I don’t think he’s serious about being with one person for the rest of his life.”
“You’ll find out [why on] the rest of the season,” she added. “I think Arie has a conflict between how he wants to present himself, and what kind of woman he thinks he should be with, and what kind of woman he knows he should be with, and then what he really wants. I mean, you don’t just change dating patterns you had for years and years at the drop of a hat because you’re on a TV show — that just doesn’t change overnight.”
Bekah doesn’t fault Arie for trying to find love on The Bachelor even if he’s not ready for marriage.
“Who wouldn’t want to go on the show as the Bachelor?” she continued “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, and I think he wants to be ready for marriage. I think he wants to have a wife and wants to have a family. I believe that. I think he’s saying [he’s ready for marriage] to convince himself and convince everyone who is watching.”
“I just don’t think he’s ready for what comes along with that kind of commitment,” she concluded.
