Here’s What Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Been Up To Since Getting The Boot From Emily Maynard

The former 'Bachelorette' star has almost been the show’s leading man twice before!

Arie Luyendyk, Jr., has officially been crowned as the next Bachelor, but fans want to know – what’s he been up to since 2012? The former Indy race car driver appeared on season eight of The Bachelorette (yep, FIVE years ago) when he tried to win Emily Maynard’s heart. However, as Bachelor Nation fans may remember, he was sent home after making it to the final two and kinda sorta disappeared from the spotlight (more like fell off the face of the earth) after that. So, just what has he been up to since his Bachelorette days? (And how did ABC even remember him?) Click through the gallery to find out!
