Arie Luyendyk Jr. is a Dutch-born auto racing driver based in the United States. Arie is also a reality TV star, and he rose to fame after his appearance on reality TV show The Bachelorette back in 2012. In the 8th season of the show, he became the first runner-up. As of 2018, he will be seen in the 22nd season of The Bachelor.
Born on 18th September 1981, the 36-year-old became "Most Popular Driver" in open wheel driving. He was not only voted for the title for a year but for four consecutive times. Moreover, after his appearance on reality TV shows, he has become even more popular especially among women.
Today, we are sharing some details about who the reality TV star is dating at the moment and his past affairs.
Arie is currently single, apparently as he is on The Bachelor to find the one for himself. However, since the top three women in the show have already been announced, it is not going to take long until he finds the one and puts a ring on it.
The first candidate who has the potential of being his future partner is 27-year-old Rebecca 'Becca' Kufrin. Rebecca is a publicist based in Minnesota.

These three are the women who will be competing to win Arie's heart. If it goes well, they might even get married and have children. But let's face it, none of the winners of the show have ended that way.
One of Arie's first encounter was with American reality TV star Emily Maynard Johnson. The duo met during 2003 season of The Bachelorette. Their encounter happened very shortly after the show ended. According to sources, Arie and Emily had a short-lived affair back in 2014.
