Greater Fort Lauderdale is proud to be the featured destination in the upcoming episode of ABC’s The Bachelor.

Six years ago, Arie Luyendyk Jr. was in love and a day away from proposing to the woman of his dreams. And then, she broke his heart. After a tearful exit on Emily Maynard’s (now Emily Maynard Johnson) season of ABC’s The Bachelorette, Arie stepped away from the spotlight of Bachelor Nation, retired from his career as an accomplished Formula 1 racer, and shifted gears to become a successful real estate broker in Scottsdale, Arizona. Even though he has been away from Bachelor Nation, America hasn’t forgotten Arie’s rugged good looks and charm. Now Arie, 36, is back and ready to race into America’s heart yet again when he returns for a second shot at love, starring in the 22nd season of ABC’s hit romance reality series The Bachelor, returning to ABC, Mondays 8:00pm, ET/PT.
