Arie's First 'Bachelor' Promo Is Here And It’s As Unappealing As He Is

It’s happening. It’s really happening. A random old man is going to be The Bachelor. ABC released the first promo for season 22 of The Bachelor and it’s well…about as interesting as Arie Luyendyk Jr.

I mean, in the trailer’s defense, it is short. Like, 30 seconds. Which is about as much time as I want to dedicate to this season of The Bachelor anyway. It also focuses entirely on the one and only interesting fact about Arie, which is that he is a race car driver. Okay.

Did you know that race car is spelled the same way forward and backward? That fact alone is about ten thousand times more interesting than this trailer. On the bright side, I may actually be able to do things on Monday nights this January. Maybe I’ll go to the gym? (Not really but it’s a nice thought thought.)

And truly, my heart goes out to the many aspiring Instagram models bright young women sick of swimmin’ who applied for this season thinking they would be getting Peter but are instead going to be competing for the affections of a guy they would normally reject on any given Saturday night. The whole thing is very unfortunate. 

Watch the trailer below.
