PRE-BACHELORETTE: 3 info to start, which I think (fear) will please those pesky tabloid reporters:

1) Arie Jr. is the son of twice winner of the Indianapolis 500 Arie Luyendyk. Little bit of trivia: the last corner of the Zandvoort track in the Netherlands carries his name. In 1999, he was presented with the Sagamore of the Wabash award, reflecting upon his Indy 500 career.

2) Arie used to date current Bachelor Producer Cassie Lambert, who is known to be close to Emily. I am guessing Arie came highly recommended, with no hard feelings, as Cassie is recently and happily engaged 🙂

3) Arie has a sheet! See his mug show below and the info here.

Arie is very active on the charity circuit too, with appearances at charitable events like the one for Breast Cancer below, and a visit to the US troops in Iraq in December 2008:

More about his visit to Iraq here!
