The legions of fans hooked on ABC’s reality-TV romance factory may band together under the moniker of Bachelor Nation, but The Bachelor is really less like a country and more like a planet.

7, with Rachel Lindsay screaming news of her engagement from a mountaintop.

But before the last echo had finished bouncing off the Rioja peaks, it seemed the camera was already jonesing to ditch the Bachelorette and pan away to the next season of The Bachelor.

And from this cesspool of spoilers and subtweets and too much attention, Arie — a choice that is downright archaeological — has arisen.

There are two things to look at here: what transpired, and what didn’t.

Last night, he tweeted, “I’ll be honest: I’m clueless.

Sorry,” though he later tweeted that Arie was his final prediction.

The star of The Bachelor season 22 is Arie Luyendyk Jr., the runner-up of The Bachelorette season 8, which aired in 2012, and a runner-up for The Bachelor’s title role in 2015.

Steve Carbone, aka Reality Steve, said last week that The Bachelor was this Bachelorette season runner-up Peter Kraus.

Early Bachelors included the heir to an all-American automotive fortune, a pro athlete, a naval officer (uniform included, natch), and a pseudo royal.

One time, it was just a guy — Season 12’s Matt Grant — who seemed like he must be something special because he had a posh British accent.

Arie first appeared at the precise moment in the franchise’s history in which the walls between production, audience, and cast first began to show their fissures; in fact, he was at the center of a controversy that set off a fundamental change in the way the show navigates those boundaries.
