Arie Luyendyk Jr

Dutch racecar driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. placed first runner-up on season eight of "The Bachelorette." He might not have won Emily's heart, but he sure did capture the attention of women everywhere with his smooth moves--on and off the racetrack. Dubbed the "Kissing Bandit" Arie resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his first and longest love, auto racing. The son of a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, Arie's career path was a no brainer from the beginning. At a young age he caught the racing "bug" racing go karts and climbing the ranks through Formula Ford, Firestone Indy Lights, and other forms of racing. Fans voted Arie Indy Pro Series' "Most Popular Driver" four years a row and now he is appealing to a whole different fan-set, from off-road truck dirt racing fans to Bachelorette viewers new to the racing scene. His current venture leads him around the country to various stadiums flying off jumps, spraying dirt, and sliding into the corners.
