'The Bachelor' spoilers: Who did Arie Luyendyk Jr. pick as his final bachelorette? And who are his Final 4 women?
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 01/15/2018
The Bachelor spoilers give viewers with a way to jump to the end of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s journey to find love and find out which woman won his heart and which bachelorettes made it far into the process but left brokenhearted.
The Bachelor's third episode is set to air on January 15, and only 18 women remain in the competition to become Arie's fiancee.
During the last episode, Arie enjoyed two one-on-one dates as well as a massive group date.
For his first date of the season, Arie treated a down-to-earth bachelorette, Becca Kufrin, like Cinderella. Arie gifted Becca with five designer gowns by Rachel Zoe, earrings by Neil Lane, and Louboutins heels.
Stealing a card from Pretty Woman, Arie also let Becca borrow a thick diamond necklace by Neil Lane to wear on their romantic dinner date.
Krystal received an extremely special solo date, as she got to meet Arie's parents, little brother and sister-in-law. She also got to glance back at Arie's childhood, from seeing where his first kiss was to watching home videos of him dancing in his pajamas to Michael Jackson with missing teeth.
Krystal made waves in the house when she returned, however, because she declined to disclose any details about her trip to Scottsdale, AZ.
Following a demolition derby group date in which Seinne Fleming won the rose, tension later escalated at the cocktail party when Krystal stole Arie away from women who didn't even receive a date that week.
Bibiana Julian gave Krystal a piece of her mind, and that battle appears to be far from over.
Now that fans are caught up, let's skip ahead to the end of the show to find out the current status of Arie's love life.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want Arie's winner and Final 4 bachelorettes to be a surprise].
Arie, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, is an engaged man!
Arie allegedly gave his final rose -- and a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring -- to the woman who had also received the first one-on-one date of the season: Becca Kufrin, a 27-year-old senior account executive from Minneapolis, MN.
Arie proposed marriage during the final Rose Ceremony filmed in Cusco, Peru, Carbone claims, which will be shown during The Bachelor's Season 22 finale.
"As I say every season, you can choose to believe that information or not... I'm just telling you you're going to hear me reference Becca all season as the winner, and yes, they are engaged," Carbone wrote in a blog post. "Will it last? Who knows?"
Becca was ironically the bachelorette who got Arie down on one knee during the first night of filming at The Bachelor mansion. That means she was the first and will be the last (hopefully) woman to get Arie to pop the question.
Arie was immediately drawn to Becca because of her humble nature, vulnerability and apparent intentions for going on the show. The 36-year-old pro racing driver thought Becca reminded him of how he had acted when first meeting Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette.
Becca appeared on The Bachelor following a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship of seven years with her ex-boyfriend.
Although the man helped Becca through one of the most difficult times of her life -- her father's passing -- Becca told Arie that she learned what she does and does not want in a future spouse thanks to that relationship.
Now, let's move on to the other women who allegedly finished as one of Arie's Final 4 bachelorettes.
Kendall Long, a 26-year-old set dresser from Los Angeles, CA, allegedly finished in third place and was therefore eliminated following her overnight Fantasy Suite date with Arie in Ica Peru.
Kendall is the quirky, ukulele-playing blonde bachelorette who loves taxidermy, especially her stuffed seal!
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison previously revealed that Kendall is "highly intellectual" and would be a bit of "an underdog" this season.
Chris' claims make sense because Carbone claims that Kendall will make it this far into the season without ever having received a one-on-one date.
And Tia Booth, a 26-year-old physical therapist from Little Rock, AR, allegedly finished in fourth place.
Arie sent Tia packing after Arie visited her hometown in Arkansas and met her family, according to Carbone.
Tia finished the demolition derby group date in second place. She has a tomboy side and seemingly no fair, but she's also a beautiful and classy woman.
Tia decided to join The Bachelor after her close friend, Raven Gates, talked her into it. Raven previously competed for Nick Viall's heart on the show's 21st season but ultimately found love with Adam Gottschalk on Bachelor in Paradise 4 last summer.
As previously mentioned, The Bachelor's next episode airs Monday, January 15 from 8-10PM ET/PT, and ABC has released some details on what fans can expect to see during the broadcast.
Arie will apparently go on two group dates and a single one-on-one date.
Arie will be shown selecting eight women for a wrestling date in which they must come up with their own wrestling personalities, dress in imaginative costume and makeup, and compete in a tournament against one another called the Gorgeous Ladies of the Bachelor, or "GLOB."
After receiving guidance and some performance secrets from two veterans of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) -- Ursula "Babe the Farmer's Daughter" Hayden and Angelina "Little Egypt" Altishin -- only one woman will be victorious and win the GLOB World Champion belt.
Kenny "Pretty Boy Pit Bull" King from Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette will also make a surprise guest appearance and take on Arie in the arena. At the afterparty, several women will fall flat when trying to intensify their connections with Arie.
The other group date will feature seven bachelorettes performing with a group of lovable canines called "The Dynamo Dogs," trained by Gayle Mirabella. The act will be called "Arie's Amazing Acrodogs."
Chris Harrison and comic actor Fred Willard from Modern Family and Best in Show will provide funny commentary for the show that will take place in a Los Angeles park, and the women will also meet Arie's adorable dog, Bastian, on the date.
During the doggy-date afterparty, a woman will stumble on another woman when trying to "get up close and personal" with the "Kissing Bandit."
And ABC has also revealed that Lauren Schleyer will be the lucky recipient of a romantic one-on-one date with Arie.
The pair will take a private jet to a Napa Valley vineyard, where they will enjoy a secluded picnic. However, Lauren will find herself having a tough time opening up to Arie and overcoming her nerves on-camera.
ABC says Lauren and Arie will be entertained by the BellaRosa String Quartet, but it's allegedly not enough for the couple to bond.
According to Carbone, Arie will deny Lauren S. a rose and send her home during the date.
At the subsequent cocktail party following the week of dates, "one woman's best romantic intentions are put to the tough test," teases ABC. And sparks will fly at the party when Arie and one woman face off, "sending a shockwave through the group."
The Rose Ceremony will conclude with 15 bachelorettes receiving roses.
Carbone says the other two women who will be eliminated are Bibiana Julian and Brittany Taylor. The remaining bachelorettes will then travel to South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, for more adventure and dates with Arie.
The 18 women currently in the running for Arie's heart on The Bachelor are:
