Two of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s exes can’t believe he’s set to search for love on TV.

ABC officially announced the 35-year-old as The Bachelor‘s next leading man last week. Before the reveal, Season 17 Bachelor Sean Lowe tweeted suggesting Luyendyk Jr. for the role, and his ex Sydney Stempfley responded with a crying-tears-of-laughter emoji: “The show would be perfect for @ariejr up until it comes to choosing just one.”

Now, Stempfley, 26, tells People she regrets lashing out online.

“I might wish I could retract that, but I think I was saying that out of spite,” she says of the tweet. »
