In what will go down in history as being the most dramatic ending to The Bachelor we have ever seen, Arie Luyendyk wasted no time in getting down on one knee for his runner up.
After breaking up with his fiancé in the season finale, Arie road tripped to Virginia Beach to be with Lauren B, originally the runner up in the show. The chemistry between them was undeniable for sure. But that didn't stop Arie from choosing Becca K after pressure from his family saying she was the better choice for him. In a truly unedited tape, we saw Arie breakup with his fiancé saying he still had feelings for Lauren B and couldn't stop thinking that maybe he made the wrong decision.
After many tears, and Arie lingering a little too long.... He finally leaves the house where he was supposed to spend a vacation away with Becca K and gets on the road to see Lauren B.
Facing backlash from pretty much all of Bachelor Nation, Arie was still able to maintain a relationship with his runner up eventually leading to a proposal in the After The Final Rose special on ABC Tuesday night. He posts on Instagram saying, "My heart.." referring to his love Lauren B.
That wasn't the only big news we got during this reunion special. After Becca K faced a huge round of support from her fellow Bachelor friends and all of Bachelor Nation, it was announced Becca K would be the new Bachelorette for ABC. They started filming well.... during the show Tuesday night as she was introduced to a few men that will be appearing on her season.
Let's do this Becca K!
