Arie Luyendyk Jr Shares Kiss With Pretty Brunette — New Girlfriend? (UPDATE)
UPDATE 1/15/14: Arie Luyendyk has pretty much confirmed via Twitter that he and Arizona-based news reporter Jenna Jones are dating. He posted a pic of his lovely lady to the social media site with the caption, "I'm one lucky man.. My #wcw." He included a smiley face emoticon with hearts in its eyes. Awwww.
Well, looks like it's official. Arie is off the market. Sorry ladies! And congrats Arie and Jenna!
ORIGINAL STORY 1/8/14: A few months ago, Emily Maynard’s kissing bandit Arie Luyendyk Jr was a single man, looking to nab the Bachelor 2015 position from under Chris Soules’ nose. Sadly, the Bachelorette 8 fave was snubbed for the gig — after quite the runaround from the show’s producers. But all of that is water under the bridge now, as Arie may have a new lady love!
The Formula One racer first alerted us to his potential new relationship this week, when he shared a selfie that showed him laying on his back and being kissed on the cheek by a pretty, ponytailed brunette. “All I’ll ever need right here #100happydays,” Arie captioned the cozy shot.
So who is this lucky lady in question? Wetpaint Entertainment’s sources tell us that she’s a gal named Jenna Jones, a Fox Sports reporter based in Arizona, just like Arie. She also contributes to the radio show, The Freaks with Kenny and Crash. But most importantly, Jenna and Arie dated a little last year. Looks like the flame has been reignited!
While we aren’t sure just yet that Arie and Jenna are officially an item, the fans have certainly spoken. One follower commented on Arie’s post, “Not too happy about this. Still wanted him to be the bachelor or my husband,” while others cried, “boooooo” or “nooooo.”
Further digging into Instagram archives shows the two posing together in November 2013, looking very close, though Jenna calls him her “one of her best friends” in the caption. Hmmm… what is going on with these two?
