Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have been thrust into the spotlight because of “The Bachelor.” He was the star of Season 22 and made some waves. It was a surprise that he was chosen for the lead role, causing a bunch of chaos among fans who wanted at least one other man to have the role. Former friends of Arie spoke out about him using this as an attempt to gain fame and not being in it for love. As it turns out, Burnham captured his heart, but not before he proposed to someone else.

The drama unfolds on television

The viewers who watch “The Bachelor” without spoilers thought that Arie Luyendyk Jr.

would choose Lauren Burnham. Their connection was strong, but unfortunately, she laid her feelings out too late in the game. Luyendyk Jr. chose Becca instead, leaving Burnham heartbroken in a car home. As the show wrapped for the season, it was apparent that the special live show after would be different. Arie had decided to leave Becca in hopes that Lauren would take him back. His breakup with Becca was filmed, and his attempt to win Lauren back was documented as well.

It was confirmed that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham had gotten back together and engaged during “The Bachelor” showAfter the Final Rose.” It made headlines for weeks after, causing a lot of hate to be thrown at the couple.

They appeared happy and have been traveling since the show aired. Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham are planning a wedding. It is being said that the couple wants a televised wedding and are waiting for ABC to give them the green light. If that is the case, Arie and Lauren may be married sooner rather than later.

The future

Now that Arie Luyendyk Jr.

has the celebrity status he wanted and his girl, there is no telling what the future will hold for him. Lauren Burnham appears to be happy being with him, even though she was his runner-up. “The Bachelor” fans aren't particularly happy with how things played out, but Becca was given the lead role on “The Bachelorette.” She is currently filming the new season which is set to begin airing in May.

With this turning out much better than anyone anticipated while watching the breakup of Arie and Becca, the happy endings aren't official yet. There is speculation that without a televised wedding, Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham may not make it down the aisle at all.

There will be another season of "The Bachelor." Fans are hoping things will be less complicated the next time around.
