State Rep. Drew Christensen wasn't joking.
The lawmaker went viral earlier this week when he said Minnesotans shouldn't have to put up with "The Bachelor" Arie Luyendyk, Jr. after he broke Prior Lake native Becca Kufrin's heart in the season finale episode.
And he was apparently serious about trying to ban the Bachelor from Minnesota – provided his tweet were retweeted 1,000 times.
His bill reads:
"The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance from Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of The Bachelor. It is state policy that every person in the state has the right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk, Jr., in the state."
Christensen also drafted an official letter inviting Becca K. to join him at Governor Mark Dayton's State of the State next Wednesday.
No word yet if Becca, who will be the star of next season's "The Bachelorette," will join him.
By the way, Arie was on Jimmy Kimmel and said "it was worth it" to break it off with Becca K. because he was so in love with Lauren.
