Arie Luyendyk Jr. will begin on his journey to find love on Season 22 of The Bachelor when it premieres on January 1, 2018 on ABC.

The former race car driver previously appeared on Emily Maynard's season of  The Bachelorette, but didn't win her heart. Luyendyk left the reality-tv spotlight in 2012 and has been focusing on a career in real estate.

The 'Bachelorette' Season 13 runner-up shared his feelings in a lengthy post on Instagram.

ABC has yet to release the names or photos of the young women competing for Luyendyk Jr.'s roses of love. But the one constant all of #BachelorNation relies on to keep the sanity, is Chris Harrison, who's back as host.
