Arie Luyendyk Jr. is a “risky and exciting” Bachelor pick -- he’s been absent from the franchise so long he can shake things up
“That relative blank slate” is what makes Arie interesting, says Andrew Gruttadaro. “With him, The Bachelor is (slightly) hitting the reset button, which it’s desperately needed to do. For the last few years, the franchise has been stuck in the Nick Viall era of self-aware, self-involved guys and girls, and the shows have lost some energy because of it. Seasons have felt like pained slogs, rather than oblivious, melodramatic fun. Rachel Lindsay was quite possibly the best Bachelorette in history, and her season was a dud, bereft of any compelling story lines or magnetic characters. It says a lot that the best choice for Bachelor from Rachel’s season was a guy who openly flouted the show’s fantasy. So now The Bachelor goes with a guy who was pre-Viall, who fully bought into the franchise’s prepackaged concept of love in 2012, and who might be able to restore the show to its rightful form.”

ABC’s botched Bachelor: Why Arie Luyendyk Jr. is an underwhelming and backwards-thinking pick
Bachelor fans were stunned by Arie’s selection this morning — because they forget all about him. The so-called “fan favorite” was runner-up in Emily Maynard’s season in 2012, which was five years ago. “Five. That’s a long ass time in Bachelor years,” says Lea Palmieri. “Why does ABC keep reaching back to the distant past for these bros?” she asks, referring also to last year’s Bachelor Nick Viall. She adds: “You know, maybe making a decision that indicates the franchise is moving forward, instead of 5 steps back would’ve been nice? The whole entire lifeblood of this show is the community discussion, at work, on Twitter, at brunch, and choosing someone that not everyone knows, remembers, or cares about, rips that apart and takes the fun out of the franchise. A franchise we are desperately counting on to be fun!”
PLUS: Finally, a Bachelor who’s employed!, this looks like a last-minute choice after a report that producers were in “full-blown panic mode” yesterday, Bachelor fans were gobsmacked by the choice, Arie’s dad was “The Flying Dutchman” with two Indy 500 victories, Zach Braff thinks he looks like Arie, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss tweets “Make ABC great Again,” and Fleiss retweeted a tweet gloating that Reality Steve got it wrong when he tweeted last week: “I feel confident in reporting that sources are telling me Peter is the next Bachelor & it will be announced soon.”
