Arie Luyendyk Jr. is the New Bachelor

ABC has finally stated the name of the next Bachelor and it is a bit of a shocker. 

Instead of choosing one of the men who competed on Rachel's season of The Bachelorette, producers went back 5 years to Emily Maynard's season and chose Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Luyendyk was at home when he got the call, "I was a little skeptical because we'd been in talks for a few years about doing it, so I just kind of went into it with an open heart, an open mind," he added. "It just hit me that yeah, I'm here."

The premiere date has yet to be released by ABC.
