Arie's 'Bachelor' Bride Was Engaged Before… Twice

Not to mention, even politicians are standing by Becca, as Minnesota Representative Drew Christensen authored a bill banning Arie from the state.

Minnesota's own Rebecca Kufrin was initially proposed to on the most recent season of Bachelor, before later being dumped in favor of runner-up Lauren Burnham. Of course, Luyendyk proposed only after proposing to and then subsequently breaking up with Becca Kufrin in the most excruciatingly painful moment in "Bachelor" history. The Freedom From Arie Luyendyk Jr. bill reads, "The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of the The Bachelor".

"That's the big reason I have a Twitter account and a Facebook account - to engage with my constituents on political issues, and to tweet about the Twins games and sometimes I tweet about 'The Bachelor, '" Christensen said.

Becca won't have to dwell much longer on Arie's new relationship, though.

"I totally respect his decision to follow his heart", she told PEOPLE this week.

And the new "Bachelorette" is confident this time around she will be successful in finding love, "I've been in love in the past".

She does however admit she was a bit skeptical after he first reached out to her... while he was still engaged to Becca.

"It was like a slap in the face", she told People magazine. She also pointed out that she couldn't speak for Lauren, but she thinks that Arie will have some trouble only being with one woman.

Andi Dorfman, whose engagement also ended before a trip down the aisle, said: 'Hope you find love. Yes, a show humiliates you and your solution: return to the very show that humiliates you. "I'll take one with you'".

In a real life situation that nearly echoed in this week's finale, Roberson wrote, "He'd often see both of us on the same day". However, she didn't dance with him but for him, and everyone (including Jake) was super uncomfortable.

"I made some bad decisions, but the best decision was running back to you".

But in an interview with Life and Style, Harshman said Luyendyk mischaracterized how he learned about the miscarriage, which occurred seven years earlier. A camera crew? Really?
