'The Bachelor' spoilers: Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s complete list of Season 22 bachelorettes allegedly revealed!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/01/2017
The Bachelor spoilers are unraveling the details of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s upcoming season, including the entire cast of bachelorettes.
The Bachelor's 22nd season began production in late September, but ABC has yet to release any details other than the fact the show will premiere Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8PM ET/PT.
However, the identities of Arie's bachelorettes have leaked out as well as certain dates the Bachelor has enjoyed during filming.
So far, Arie has been spotted on a Demolition Derby date and at a Dog Show and wrestling group date. Arie was photographed riding a motorcycle during one outing, and he also apparently brought a lucky girl home to Arizona to meet his parents at his very own condo.
Bachelor Nation has also caught a glimpse of Arie, a 36-year-old professional race car driver turned real estate agent, looking handsome in a tuxedo during a brief promo that recently aired on the network.
So what type of woman is Arie looking for? Arie wants his future fiancee -- and hopeful wife -- to be "independent and strong, but then still gentle." He wants "a little mix" of qualities, as previously revealed on Good Morning America.
"Obviously there's got to be that chemistry there," Arie, who is nicknamed "the kissing bandit," further explained on GMA in early September. "Emily and I had it previously and I'm hoping to find that type of love, for sure."
Arie's first stint on the ABC franchise was back in 2012, when he competed for Emily Maynard's heart onThe Bachelorette's eighth season. He finished as the runner-up behind winner Jef Holm and left brokenhearted. Arie may be afraid The Bachelor process will end the same way, but he's decided to put himself out there anyway.
Arie will likely find "the one" and his perfect match when taking a look at The Bachelor's newest batch of gorgeous and well-educated bachelorettes.
