Life & Style magazine has learned that patience has paid off for the newly chosen Season 22 Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr.

“He’s wanted to star on The Bachelor forever,” reveals a source. “He’s gotten close a few times. They’ve dragged him along before.”

Arie, 35, recently hinted he was a contender for the Season 17 Bachelor gig that went to Sean Lowe and for Chris Soules’ season two years later. “In the past, he’s told all his friends he was going to be the Bachelor, and then boom — he wasn’t,” the source explains to Life & Style.

But now, the Scottsdale, Ariz., resident is officially handing out the roses. “Girls,” the source predicts, “are going to love him.”
