Not everybody loves the thought of Arie Luyendyk Jr. handing out roses as The Bachelor — former buddy Jef Holm included! (The bromance is formally over, of us.)
Sure, these guys definitely appear to be on the outs now, however again once they have been contestants on The Bachelorette Season eight, they have been as shut as “two peas in a pod.” At the very least, that is what mutual good friend and former contestant Chris Bukowski — who just lately opened Chicago-based restaurant Bracket Room — advised Life & Fashion solely. In reality, Chris hasn’t the foggiest concept why Arie and Jef are beefin’!
“I do not know what the rift is, nevertheless it does not appear too good …. I am positive we’ll discover out ultimately,” he mentioned.
Here is the backstory: Shortly after ABC introduced Arie as the following star of the long-running relationship present, Jef dissed the Dutch racecar driver. “Oh, the tales I might inform,” he tweeted about Arie. “I finished being mates with him years in the past as a result of he is disgusting.”

And to at the present time, we nonetheless do not know why Jef has an ax to grind with Arie. Jef even beat out the now-36-year-old because the winner of Bachelorette Emily Maynard’s coronary heart (although their engagement was short-lived).
For his half, Chris appears glad Arie is the star of the upcoming season. “I despatched him a message the morning earlier than he began filming,” he advised us. “Arie’s going to be nice as a result of he’ll be himself, and I believe the most effective factor about Arie, totally different from lots of the Bachelors, is that he is truly a bachelor in actual life … He is profitable, and he is an excellent man.”
We’ll discover out if Arie might be simply as profitable in love as he’s in his profession — the dude has a powerful internet price! — when The Bachelor Season 22 premieres in January. Jef, in the meantime, will certainly be rooting for televised heartbreak!
