WARNING! Spoilers below!
It's still early days on The Bachelorette, but Emily Maynard has a few clear favorites — including Arie Luyendyk and his beauteous hair flop. Emily and Arie seem to be in a permanent state of lip-lock, and she didn't even mind when he fondled her knee during one of their many deep conversations!
This Indy 500 star is clearly a frontrunner in the race to win Emily's heart, but will she call his name during the final rose ceremony? Let's take a look at the evidence! According to our sources in Prague (that's right, we're everywhere), Arie and Emily were caught canoodling on April 13th as they took a walk over the historic Charles Bridge. This was Arie's second one-on-one date, which will take place during Episode 7.
Emily was so impressed by Arie that she agreed to hit up his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona on April 24th, where they rode around on a two-seater go kart. Sigh, how romantic! At this point in the competition, Arie's only rivals are Jef Holm (our personal fave) and Sean Lowe, so his odds of winning are pretty high.
Unfortunately, Emily learned about Arie's relationship with Bachelorette producer, Cassie Lambert, during (or shortly after) the hometown visits, and Us Weekly reports that "she was livid." As she should be! "She cut him right then and there," Us Weekly's source says. "Her ego was shot."
Yikes, sounds like Arie's mysterious past with Emily's producer had him in some major hot water. We don't have firm confirmation that he's out of the running, but expect Jef and Sean to nab the final two roses!
