After the shocking conclusion of the 22nd season of The Bachelor, the titular bachelor Arie Luyendyk, Jr. has drawn some heavy criticisms for how he handled the whole pick-who-he-wants-to-marry thing.
Arie handled it so poorly, in fact, that one of his own state politicians drafted up a bill to ban him from the state of Minnesota (Becca K.’s home state). Minnesota Representative Drew Christensen took to Twitter to announce that, with enough support, he’d write such a bill.
And after receiving thousands and thousands of likes and retweets on his tweet, Christensen wrote up a bill to ban Arie from the state.
The bill reads: “The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of the The Bachelor (sic). It is state policy that every person in the state has a right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. in the state.”
In the season finale of The Bachelor, Arie first chose Becca K. to propose to, but after thinking about it for a very short amount of time, he ended up breaking up with his new fiancé and proposed to the woman who originally came in second place, Lauren B.
It wasn’t a great look to begin with, but Arie made it so much worse by trying to be a nice guy about it and dragging out the whole scenario for an uncomfortably long amount of time. On camera.
The bill to ban Arie from Minnesota probably isn’t going to go anywhere, but we support the sentiment.
