Well, folks, we’ve made it. As hard as it was at some points — we have almost made it through the entirety of Arie’s season of The Bachelor. There have been a few bumps in the road, but Arie is left with three great finalists and it seems like he can’t lose, right? Well, it is The Bachelor and Arie is making the decisions, so you know some drama is going to ensue surrounding fantasy suite dates. The Bachelor week 9 promo shows some major drama.
The newest episode of The Bachelor is airing on Feb. 26, and it will include fantasy suites and meeting Arie’s parents again. After weeks and weeks and weeks of the show cruelly teasing someone’s (Southern) ex returning, it seems like it’s actually happening on the upcoming episode. We don’t see anyone’s face so it’s still clouded in mystery, but I’m very excited for this reveal. The entire scene from the promo has someone crying in the background — promising lots of drama.
There are three women left and Arie has to shuffle through his feelings to figure out who he is going to propose to. The problem? He’s for sure in love with two (maybe three) of the finalists. This is not hearsay or rumor — it came right out of the Bachelor’s mouth. Besides seeing him openly tell Kendall, Lauren, and Becca that he’s falling for them in upcoming previews, Arie admitted before the season even aired that he was in love with two women. He told People back in December,
I fell in love with two women, and I didn’t know I was capable of that. I’ve never been in that situation, and it was really hard. And they were two very different women, and that’s what made it even harder. I didn’t know I was really capable of having strong feelings and being in love with more than one person, but that happened. The end was really difficult for me. And I think that it’s because it’s such a huge decision, and it’s my life. But I’m happy, and I wouldn’t have changed anything.
Anyone else getting Ben Higgins vibes from this? We’ve all sort of been there done that already. Thanks anyways, Arie.
