    Huh, didn't see that one coming at all! For once, they really did have a shocking revelation, lol.

    His name was thrown around about two weeks ago, apparently Peter was playing hardball with MF, and it didn't work out..rumours and speculation mostly, but Arie was mentioned then.

    Re: New Bachelor is Arie

    We've had posters expressing concern that this news is a spoiler, but this has been reported widely in the media. When People Magazine is talking about it and he's on Good Morning, America, it's not a spoiler, it's an announcement.

    Just think his unappealing the other options are that they had to go back FIVE years to find someone. I hope they pick some age appropriate women for Arie. If there are a bunch of girls just out of college, it'll be way too creepy. He's 35 now, so let's see some women in their late-20's and early- to (*gasp*) mid-30's.

    I liked Arie, but I wonder if he's even got a strong enough personality to carry this show.

    I wonder if he can carry the show as well. I'll know the first couple of episodes, but please no more like Corrine, oh what am I saying, tptb loved her, until they didn't...
    One thing Arie has going for him, some people have forgotten him,or don't know who he is, so for them he'll be a new face..gotta look on the bright side, that, and he's not Jef with one F!

    I can't believe it's been five years since Emily's season! I saw the announcement on GMA and went...hmmm...I was not an Ari-stan during that season and didn't appreciate how he couldn't let go - to the point of stalking, but I have sort of followed him over the past few and, after the brief fling with Ben F's ex., he seemed to drop from the lime light. Interesting that he mentioned being friends with Sean, but not Jef...after Jef was dumped, they hung out and looked to be great friends. It would be fun to see Jef ( HA!)

    Arie is a disappointing pick to me; I got the impression he was quite a player and that's why they didn't choose him earlier.

    Now, hopefully, being older and out of the spotlight for awhile, he'll seem more ready to settle down.

    He doesn't do much for me, looks-wise, like Peter does () but that's okay. I will still watch, of course.
