One also claimed he lied about her miscarriage on air to garner sympathy from Burnham. Of course, Tuesday's episode kicked off with a fleshed out recap of what happened Monday night because why have a scab if you can't pick at it?

"I don't think I can drink that much", said Becca, laughing.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and fiancee Lauren Burnham apparently are not wasting time.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. Says He Broke Up with Becca Kufrin So She Could Be the Bachelorette & We're Rolling Our Eyes

So that puts the lie to the video being "unedited", as Harrison and ABC claimed, since we never saw those conversations between Luyendyk and producers. In short, The Bachelor is really banking on you forgiving Arie.

State Rep. Drew Christensen (R) tweeted a photo of the bill, which states that Minnesotans have the "right to live free" from Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Team Becca supporters can't say the same of Arie though: A representative from her home state of Minnesota just signed a bill banning Arie from the state. Minnesotans and "Bachelor" fans responded, retweeting Christensen's tweet more than 12,000 times.


Newly-engaged "Bachelor" star Arie Luyendyk Jr. was a one-woman man on Wednesday night. I just want you to be honest with her. Hold her heart high, have the most respect for her. But his self-serving vacillation wouldn't come as a surprise to any of his ex-girlfriends, according to the Daily Mail and other reports. "If a girl's feeling the butterflies for a guy already, when she gets into that state, her feelings just become more powerful, so she's probably more willing to tell that guy she loves him", she continued. "I am confident in [him]". He admits that he chose Becca because he thought she'd be a good wife, but wives aren't area rugs.

As for the guest list, Luyendyk Jr. said he's fine with Burnham inviting friends she made from The Bachelor to the wedding.

In October, Stempfley revealed her suspicion that Luyendyk had been unfaithful during their relationship, telling the website Betches.


It wasn't the kind of "I do" she had hoped for, though.

The show's host, Chris Harrison, told E! the race auto driver appeared content the day he proposed to Becca Kufrin in the show's finale.

He believes "you can't just show the pretty parts" when it comes to relationships.
