Arie Luyendyk, Jr. was jilted by "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard, but the contestant has moved on and is now planning a tell-all book about his experience on the series.
"He's pursuing a writing deal," his manager, Klint Briney, told In Touch Weekly. The book is supposed to feature the "real" story about his feelings for, and relationship with, Emily Maynard. Luyendyk finished second to Jef Holm, but made a last-ditch effort to win her heart by traveling to North Carolina and leaving his journal on her doorstep.
"A lot of crazy crap happened during the filming of 'The Bachelorette' and it got even crazier afterward," an insider for the show said. "That included Luyendyk walking off the show after learning that Maynard had slept with Holm. Arie knows a lot of the ugly stuff that went down with Emily and Jef," the source added.
Luyendyk has since moved on to a new relationship with yet another bachelorette, Courtney Robertson, who split with fiancé, and former "Bachelor," Ben Flajnik. Robertson was loathed for her antics during her time on the series, and fans were shocked when Flajnik made his final decision to propose to her.
The two grew apart, though, and eventually separated. Luyendyk and Robertson have been together for a few months now, though it's not sure how serious their relationship is. Luyendyk has also kept in touch with former romantic rival Jef Holm, even tweeting, "he is still the coolest guy I know!"
While Luyendyk is busy writing and pitching his book, another bachelor from the season is gearing up for his own show. Sean Lowe, a fan favorite from the "Bachelorette" has been chosen to star on his own season of the "Bachelor" and will get to make his own decision when it comes to dates and roses.
