When it comes to kissing, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. is like the Bachelor Nation Prince of Tides — you know, the stuff you’d write slightly disturbing romance novels about. So, where better for the indie driver to exercise his skills and perch in his kissing robe (do they make those?) than on Bachelor Pad. Right?
Wrong. In a February 20 interview with Hollywood.com, Arie was asked if he could ever see himself going on the next season of Bachelor Pad, racing against time and skeeviness to win a quarter million dollars. And while we know he’d make the show approximately 54% makeoutier whilst showing up everyone in the hardcore department, he’s not down with that plan.
"I don't think I would go on Bachelor Pad," he tells the site, ruining our lives in the process. He didn’t elaborate on why, exactly, he refuses to share his skills, but considering he mentioned that Tierra LiCausi’s recently announced engagement may prevent the most colorful contestant from The Bachelor Season 17 from joining the show, we’re wondering if Arie’s reported new love connection may also be a factor. Considering rumored “friend” Selma Alameri isn’t down with TV kissing, we doubt she’d like to see Arie entangling himself on the show.
What do you think — would Arie be great on Bachelor Pad 4? Who else would you like to see on the show?
