Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Enjoy First Date Since Engagement

Minnesota's own Rebecca Kufrin was initially proposed to on the most recent season of Bachelor, before later being dumped in favor of runner-up Lauren Burnham.

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 Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are ready to celebrate their love in public after getting engaged on the Tuesday, March 6, taping of After the Final Rose.

"Just to get closure, to move on", the 27-year-old publicist explained. Lauren joked that she still wanted the relationship to work and she asked him to please propose soon. Because you know love conquers all, especially when a producer demands it.

"I hope, after everything, that he just holds [Lauren's] heart in the highest regard", she continued.

"We talked for a long time and while I didn't know exactly what he was thinking at the time, he did seem so torn, conflicted, very serious and under a lot of pressure", he said at the time.

"[I have] so much hope for what's to come".


"I wanted everyone to know that the breakup was on me and that I made a mistake", he said, adding that the relationship started on camera and it was appropriate to end it there. "I'm ready for it". "I've been in love in the past". Fortunately for Arie and Becca, they still got something out of their awful ordeal: the former now engaged to his "true love" and the latter becoming the next "Bachelorette".

"Would I do it all again and face this scrutiny to be with her?"

It probably helps that Becca has all of Bachelor nation in her corner.

State Rep. Drew Christensen has written a bill that would ban race auto driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. from Minnesota, the Hill reports.

On Monday's season finale, the "car hunk" with the charisma and kissing sounds of a human straw proposed to Becca K., only to break it off two months later in an excruciating scene filmed for our enjoyment. Lauren, on the other hand, didn't have too many questions about his mistake and she eagerly took him back.
