The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr., is now the most hated man in Minnesota after he got engaged to Prior Lake native Becca K. only to drop her like a bad habit two weeks later so he could run back to the runner-up, Lauren.
State Rep. Drew Christensen, a native of the Prior Lake area, racked up more than 7,000 retweets when he posted this promise to author a bill that would ban Luyendyk Jr. from ever coming to Minnesota.
"Woke up to a lot of reading this morning," Christensen said on WCCO Radio, although he admitted that he's not going to draw up a real bill to ban the Bachelor (that's too bad).
Christensen is however serious about inviting Becca to Gov. Mark Dayton's State of the State address later this month.
"If 10,000 people retweet the tweet, I'll invite Becca to the State of the State," he told WCCO.
Arie's Wikipedia page was a wreck on Monday night, at one point saying he was worse at being the Bachelor than he was at being a race car driver (his old man is one of the all-time great Indy car racers).
Another edit to his Wiki page referred to him as "Evil Arie the Dirty Rotten Snake Luyendyk" and called him the "indecisive Dutch-born North American auto racer."
Just beneath that it said: "DON'T TOUCH BECCA."
Anyway, there's a second leg of the season finale tonight on ABC and Becca will have a chance to ask Arie whatever she wants.
We imagine Arie will say something along these lines:
"Like, I'm sorry, Becca. Like, I love you and stuff, but like, it just wasn't, like, right, you know?"
