How Old Arie the Bachelor Is
The Bachelor has been running for a whopping 22 seasons, always keeping fans guessing on who’s going to make the final cut. The latest season of the show features Arie Luyendyk Jr., a former Formula One driver. Before appearing on the current show, Arie actually struck out with Emily Maynard in Season 8 of The Bachelorette, even though he was first runner-up. Because of this, he’s become something of a fan favorite between the two shows.
With Arie making his big debut on the Bachelor as the star of the show, fans will no doubt be wondering just how old he is. Arie was born on September 18, 1981, meaning that he’s currently age 36 during the show.
For a little background on Arie, he immigrated to the United States with his family from the Netherlands at the age of three. He followed in the footsteps of his father, Arie Luyendyk Sr., who’s a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner. After his career in the racing world, Luyendyk Jr. moved on to be a real estate agent in Scottsdale, Ariz. Now he’s looking for love on the Bachelor, which is down to its final three contestants.
