Charming race car driver, Arie Luyendyk Jr. got his heart broken by The Bachelorette 2012’s Emily Maynard. Since then, the 36-year-old has been selling real estate for a living, and is still looking for the perfect girl to settle down with! On this season’s The Bachelor, Arie got the chance to meet 29 beautiful women selected for him by the show’s producers, in hopes that one of them will be the one. Currently, Arie is happy. In an interview, he talked about how he enjoyed watching the show back and hearing all the women’s interviews to gain more perspective on things he couldn’t see during filming. He also shared something he learned about himself. “I learned that I’m capable of loving more than one person at the same time. I learned that this wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be,” he said. “But I also really enjoyed the experience. I also met some incredible women. And it was truly hard to say goodbye to them. But I’m glad I went through the process. I glad I did it.”
