If you go by the glowing adjectives of his former housemate, it's easy to see why The Bachelorette breakout hunk Arie Luyendyk Jr. is one of the favorites to win star Emily Maynard's heart.
"Arie is romantic, charming and easygoing," Elizabeth Classen, who shared a house with the race car driver in Arizona from 2007 to 2010, tells Star in an exclusive interview. "He's wonderful, a real sweetheart. He was neat, organized and even cooked for me! We became great friends."
Elizabeth adds that while Arie was involved in three different relationships during the three-and-a-half years they lived together, "He's not a player. There was no revolving door of girls."
Emily, if you're reading this, you may want to stop right here — because an insider says Arie changed his ways in the months before he joined The Bachelorette and became a raging womanizer.
Reports have recently surfaced claiming Arie, 30, had been hooking up with a number of sexy girls in their early 20s — was still texting one of them even after he went on the show!
