While we sit around and wait to find out whether or not Arie Luyendyk Jr. ends up becoming the next “Bachelor,” we might as well share some other things going in the guy’s life — including that he and Jef Holm continue to have no ill will towards each other at all despite Arie’s last-ditch attempt to win Emily Maynard over to him after “The Bachelorette” had finished taping.
In a post on Twitter this week, Arie announced some news that may not be major, but it still makes us smile — that Jef is now following him on Twitter:
Jef went on to joke that it was his “blue eyes” that caused him to make the move. For those of you curious, Jef not following Arie until recently seemingly had nothing to do with the fact that the two parties were chasing the same woman earlier this year. Rather, Jef just isn’t following many people — Arie is the only former contestant that he is following along with host Chris Harrison, two of the show’s producers, Emily (of course), and two accounts associated with his People Water company. Jef and Arie both have largely kept a low profile since doing the show together, and right now the racer is one of the three leading candidates to be the start of the next version of the ABC show along with Sean Lowe and Ali Fedotowsky ex Roberto Martinez.
