Arie Luyendyk's ex-girlfriends from the show have been dishing some dirt on the former racer ever since the final episode of the show saw him breaking up with Becca Kurfin for Lauren Burnham. All of them believe that they foresaw Arie messing things up for the guy he is.
One among the many who came forward was Sydney Stempfley, who took to Twitter on March 6 to tell people that she is not surprised that Arie would choose to pull out a move like this. “I hate to say I told you so butttt….,” her tweet read in response to a retweeted comment about the series that read, “The show would be perfect for @ariejr up until it comes to choosing just one.”
This is not the first time that Sydney has spoken about Arie. Previously, in an interview with Betches, she has accused him of cheating on her with other girls. “That guy had hoes in different area codes,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t really suspect anything at the time. Especially because we did spend so much time together. But after the fact, I realize there were definitely other girls in the picture. It’s not easy to find out.”
She also spoke about how she was blindsided when Arie decided to break up with her. In an interview with Daily Mail, she mentions that the two had a good time the night before he decided to not give her a rose and this decision shocked her. "Everything was normal! The next day, we had plans after I got off work. It was just a regular day, so it definitely caught me by surprise," she said.
Another ex who came forward was Fox reporter Jenna Jones. She made a confession that the time she auditioned for the 'The Bachelor', the two were also dating. “He continued auditioning behind my back,” she wrote in the tweet. She also replied to another user’s tweet and said he is “a dude who claims to be a hopeless romantic but forever cheats on and does despicable wrongs to women.”
The accusations against Arie don't end here. During one of the episodes, he had told Lauren about his ex, Cassie Harshman saying that she had left him after she suffered a miscarriage. He suggested that she had told him about the miscarriage over the phone. “When you come home, I won’t be here," he told Lauren recalling the event. However, Cassie later came forward denying this in an interview with Life & Style magazine.
“He was with me in the doctor’s office when we found out about the miscarriage,” she said. “It didn’t happen at all the way he portrayed it. At all! The miscarriage was the beginning of the end but it was a long breakup. It wasn’t his story to tell. It’s so disrespectful. It’s very painful to see one of the worst experiences of my life played out on TV. That he would use this while cameras are rolling, with someone he barely knows, to garner sympathy, is just really sad.”
Cassie also revealed that many of her family members were not aware of the miscarriage and Arie's decision to talk about it on national television did not do her any good. “I never even told my dad about the miscarriage,” she continued. “I have a lot of friends and family that didn’t know, and The Bachelor is how they’re finding out. It sucks," she said.
At the same time, Arie had also dated former winner of The Bachelor, Courtney Robertson, in 2012 and in her book 'I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain' she wrote about how Arie was seeing another woman when they were together. “He was dating this woman the entire time we were together,” an excerpt from the book read. “He’d often seen both of us on the same day.”
Law student, Giustina Lee, is another woman to come forward who claims that they dated on and off between Aug. 2013 and Aug 2017 and also alleged that they hooked up before Arie started shooting for 'The Bachelor'. “It was a good time,” she told InTouch. “We went to dinner with my mom and my roommate, and we were just cuddling and winking at each other, and touching thighs underneath the tablecloth.” She even revealed that the two hooked up and did not know about Arie coming on the show until she saw him on TV. Looks like Arie has managed to upset a lot of women and this does not affect his relationship with Lauren.
