It’s Scottsdale all the way for Arie Luyendyk, Jr., who tweeted his pick for the next winner of The Bachelorette. “Based on limo arrivals and tons of AWKWARD conversations here is my pick and prediction for Des...so far it’s Drew.”
Why? Well, it probably helps both Arie — a racecar driver who starred on The Bachelorette Season 8—and Drew Kenney are from the same Phoenix, Arizona suburb. Arie added Drew also “seems the most put together,” which we’re interpreting as “Wowza! What a hunk!”
So far, Arie’s instinct seems to be right on. Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock gave Drew one of the premiere’s six first impression roses (the boy is a model, after all). Though the chemistry between Des and Drew left a little to be desired (was it just us or was his voice a tad annoying?) Arizona may finally see a Bachelorette winner.
Things aren’t looking so positive in Arie’s own love life. After being dumped on the finale by fellow racing enthusiast Emily Maynard, Arie started dating none other than Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson. But after a promising start, that romance fizzled, too. One upside: Arie’s got time to watch the latest season of The Bachelorette.
