As anxious fans are still waiting for an answer as to who will be the next star of The Bachelor, Sean Lowe recently revealed why he would be a good candidate, but we’ve also learned one hunk we won’t be seeing next season: Arie Luyendyk Jr.! Sorry fans, but Arie has confirmed that he will not be appearing on the show.
Most folks seem to be getting frustrated waiting for the new Bachelor to be announced, and while a few names have been placed on the list, we can now cross Arie Luyendyk’s name off the list. The race car driver who won many fans over during his recent stint on The Bachelorette, made this official statement on Friday: “The Bachelorette was an amazing experience but I will not continue with The Bachelor.”
Why is he turning it down altogether? It’s simple, Arie just wants to get his career going again. “Ultimately I realized my heart is tied to the race track and my career is my main priority. I’m looking forward to getting back on the track,” Luyendyk continued. But that doesn’t mean that we have seen the last of Arie, as he also mentioned that he “will continue to consider entertainment offers that will allow him consistency with his training and team schedules.”
So, that leaves us with two other choices for The Bachelor: Roberto Martinez or Sean Lowe. Hmm, something tells us that we will be seeing hunky Sean Lowe as the next Bachelor, but either one of them would be great!
