Bachelor nation is not happy!

After anxiously awaiting the announcement of the season 22 pick for The Bachelor, it was finally revealed today that race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. . is going to be stepping up to the plate.

In the last five years since his initial run on The Bachelorette, Arie's name has been thrown around a few times as a potential candidate. So could this finally be the season he settles down and finds love? Will fans rally behind him in the end?
