"I came here for one reason: to find my future wife. I kept asking myself: Is she here? How do I know? I always knew this whole thing would be difficult, but I didn't realize just how hard it would be," Arie wrote in his People blog.
"And it kicks into high gear fast. As I start falling for some women, other women start falling apart. I hoped that the flare-ups this week were just a blip, but this was just the beginning."
As The Bachelor viewers already witnessed, Bibiana Julian got into a heated argument with Krystal Nielson about stealing Arie's time from women who needed to get to know him better early on in the process.
And based on previews for the rest of the season, Bekah Martinez will appear to rub some of the bachelorettes the wrong way.
The date will also feature appearances by two veterans of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) -- Ursula "Babe the Farmer's Daughter" Hayden and Angelina "Little Egypt" Altishin -- who will share their secrets of success in the ring, from their showstopping moves to the theatricality of it all.
"Just a couple weeks in and there's already way more romance, drama, and tears than I had ever expected," Arie wrote. "You won't want to miss it."
