    Arie - Bachelor 22

    Six years ago, Arie Luyendyk Jr. was in love and a day away from proposing to the woman of his dreams. And then, she broke his heart. Emily Maynard (now Emily Maynard Johnson) may not have been Arie's future wife, but he hasn't been able to find a love like hers since. Now Arie is back and ready to race into America's heart yet again when he returns for a second shot at love, starring in the 22nd season of The Bachelor.
    After a tearful exit on Emily's season of The Bachelorette, Arie has stepped away from the spotlight and focused on his new career in real estate, which has brought him tremendous success. Even though he has been gone from Bachelor Nation, America hasn't forgotten Arie's rugged good looks and charm. Now Arie is back and ready to race into America's heart yet again.

    Born in the Netherlands, Arie, 35, and his family immigrated to the United States when he was just three years old. Son of famed Formula One racer, Arie Luyendyk Sr., a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, Arie Jr. followed in his father's footsteps. He made a name for himself, speeding his own way into the Indy 500. After a career as a respected Formula 1 racer, he shifted gears and is now a successful real estate broker in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    After mending his broken heart, Arie is finally ready to start his own journey for love.

    The first of the contestant threads. The remainder to be posted after the Premiere Episode and the field takes a huge hit.

    The usual yada yada, but I do find his age interesting.

    Wow, I cannot believe the new season starts tomorrow. Thanks for the link, Ariel; I just checked out the contestants and their bios. I think they are quite an attractive group of women. I have not been reading up about Arie, but I am sensing the consensus is that he is a playa. So, maybe he is not here for the 'right reasons' and we won't see any true love connection. Bring on the snark, ladies (and gents if you are watching).

    I think Nick was older. Arie is 35. Wasn't Nick 36?

    I don't find Arie the rugged type at all.

    Nah, he's not rugged at all, I'd be afraid I'd hurt him..
