Bachelorette Winner Jef Holm Calls Ex-Friend & New Bachelor Arie Jr. “Disgusting”

Arie Luyendyk Jr is finally getting his shot as the lead after five years.. but the Bachelor Nation is divided.

Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard had only good things to say about her ex.

“I can’t think of a better person to be The Bachelor than Arie and I’ve been hoping this day would come since Season 8 ended!” Emily tells Us Weekly. “He’s a gentleman through and through and all the girls on his season are lucky to have him.”

“I’ll be wishing him nothing but the best because that’s absolutely what he deserves!”

Emily Maynard’s winner and Arie’s former friend Jef Holm is making it clear how he feels about our new leading man.


After GMA officially announced the next Bachelor, Jef voiced his displeasure via Twitter.

“Oh the stories I could tell…” he tweeted right after the announcement was made by ABC.

He also tweeted:“rather see a double bachelor” in response to a tweet from Mike Fleiss, the franchise creator

In another tweet that he since deleted, he added that he “stopped being friends with [Arie] years ago because he’s disgusting.”
