“I’ve made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you,” he said. " “I can’t imagine a life without you. … I truly believe you are my soulmate. I’m ready to face this life with you, and all that comes with it. The good, and the bad. I love you so much." 

He further added that he wanted to do this in front of everyone because it is something that he believes should have happened long back. "I wanted to do this in front, everyone because I want to show you that I should have done this a long time ago. Lauren Elizabeth Burnham, will you marry me?" he continued. 

He was unable to forget her even after he proposed to Becca (Twitter)

This shocking proposal comes after Arie decided to break ties with Becca. During the last rose ceremony of the show, viewers got to see that Becca happened to be the lucky one who received the final rose and it was Lauren who was at the other end of a goodbye. However, after returning to the US, Arie realized that he still had feelings for Lauren. 

It is then that the former racer decided to turn his fate around and ended things with Becca. In an interview with People, Arie admitted that even after proposing Becca he was not able to forget and he did not think that it was fair to Becca to be in a relationship where feelings such as his were in place. He decided to finally take the big decision of leaving Becca for Lauren when he understood that the feeling was more than just missing someone and it looks like his risk did pay off as Lauren too felt the same.
