Ugh, the rumors about who could be the next star of The Bachelor are still floating around, now that Roberto Martinez reportedly has a new gal. While most fans are hoping that Sean Lowe takes the gig, there is still the possibility that Arie Luyendyk Jr. could be The Bachelor. We know, icky…but, does he even have any interest? Find out after the jump!
Now that Roberto Martinez will not be doing The Bachelor, the focus has been on Sean Lowe, who many fans thought would end up with Emily Maynard. However, another name has now been thrown into the mix –
sleazy finalist, Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Is Arie interested? Maybe. In a recent post Bachelorette interview, Arie revealed: “I went into the Bachelorette with zero expectations and I found love. It was very hard to move forward, but I still hold the same hope in my heart that someone out there will, someday, be the perfect fit,” adding: “It would be a very tough decision to open myself up again like that, but I do know I’m ready to find someone. You never know!”
Oh yay, can you sense our excitement at this possibility. Sorry, but we still want to see Sean Lowe take the gig – please, please ABC – offer it to Sean, we beg of you!
As for his time on The Bachelorette, Arie Luyendyk Jr. says he has no regrets: “I can honestly say I was 100% myself and I would not have changed a thing. I was really grateful for the experience and I was so lucky to have had a connection with Emily. It made my time on the show very enjoyable. It was a wild ride.”
