Minnesota Rep. Bans 'The Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. From Ever Entering Minnesota


If you’re an avid watcher of The Bachelor, chances are the end of this season left you enraged.

During the final moments of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season, he looked into the eyes of one out of three women he said loved while on the show and asked her to marry him.

The lucky lady, Becca Kurfin, who hails from Minnesota, immediately accepted.

But it wasn’t for a few more weeks that things took a turn for the worse.

Arie showed up in L.A. to visit with Becca who had flown all of the way from Minnesota to spend time with her fiance for the weekend. Only minutes after greeting Becca, he told her he had made a mistake.

The raw unedited footage was, to say the least, the most controversial scene ever filmed by The Bachelor crew.

It was packed with raw emotion and heartbreak, and fans called out the show’s producers for airing such a tragic and painful moment of Becca’s life.

As for his reasoning?

In the weeks that followed the engagement, it became clear to him that the more time that passed meant drifting further and further away from the woman he had rejected.

He panicked and decided he didn’t want to lose Lauren, so he reached out to her before ever ending things with his current fiancé.

After learning that Lauren would, in fact, take him back, he went to L.A. and allowed producers to film the most painful moment of Becca’s life.

The viral scene caused a lot of bachelor fans who normally keep their opinions to themselves to come to the defense of the scorned bachelorette. One of them being Minnesota Representative Drew Christensen, who was so annoyed with Arie that he tweeted a very interesting promise…

For a thousand retweets, he would create and sign a bill banning Arie Luyendyk Jr. from the state of Minnesota forever. It currently has 12,000.

Not long after, Christensen posted a follow up tweet saying that he was a man of his word.

He also went on to invite Becca Kurfin to the State Address next week.

Christensen’s actions have earned him national attention as well as catching the eye of Jimmy Kimmel who mentioned his bill on his show.

The consensus is crystal clear — the world is happy to see Arie banned from the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Forever.
