It was supposed to be a fun day for Arie and all his dates on this week’s episode, complete with the ladies competing in a lively wrestling match (after being trained by professionals, of course), and a riveting dog show featuring Arie’s own pup Bastien.

That was the second strike against her. The first was just last week when an enjoyable bumper car outing proved to be a fiasco for her—which made Arie come to the conclusion that she was a bit of a buzzkill.

So flash forward to this week, and Arie apparently had enough of it. He told People magazine, “I thought we had really great potential. But, by this time, I really didn’t feel the chemistry.”

He went on, “As soon as I was 100 percent sure she wouldn’t be a long-term partner, I knew I had to say goodbye. That’s why I couldn’t kiss Annaliese. As much as being rejected can hurt, I couldn’t lead her on.”
