WARNING: Spoilers Below!
Ummm, stop everything. Arie Luyendyk, Jr. might be engaged to The Bachelorette's Emily Maynard! "Who knows what happens. If I am engaged to Emily, I don’t think it would be possible for me to be the next Bachelor,” Ariel The Merman told media outlets during a jaw-dropping interview on Friday. "My fiancé might not approve of that."
In the words of Jef Holm, we feel a million emotions right now. Especially because rumor has it that Arie was kicked out of Emily's love nest after making it to the final three. Have we been lead astray?!
"I still feel, as I did on the show," Arie said when asked about Emily. "That we have a connection that sets us apart from everybody… [My feelings are] still as strong as they were when I was on the show."
Ok, so there are two possibilities. Either Arie and Emily are currently engaged, or he's put a ring on some random's finger while still luvin' on Em. Either way, we'll be having our own wedding ceremony with a cardboard cut-out of his face next summer. The entire internet is invited!
