LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Bachelorette 2012 winner spoilers this week took a new turn, specifically about Arie Luyendyk Jr and Cassie Lambert. While “who wins the Bachelorette 2012″ has dominated spoilers in recent weeks, the bigger question this month has been whether Arie Luyendyk’s dating history with Cassie Lambert ultimately prevents him from winning the season.
In recent weeks, Bachelorette 2012 spoilers have focused on the last few episodes of the season. When the show is down to four cast members, Emily Maynard, for the first time, learns that Cassie Lambert and Arie Luyendyk Jr previously dated, so claim recent news reports.
RealitySteve.com and other online spoilers have previously told news that, at the Final Four, Arie comes clean about his dating history with Cassie; but despite that revelation, Emily eliminates a different Top 4 guy, and sends Arie to the finals.
Previously, spoilers have told news that the dating history revelation does not sit well with Emily. News reports have claimed that the revelation is a major turning point in Arie’s position to possibly win this season. The reports, further, claim that Emily was not pleased whatsoever with the revelation, but still was able to keep Arie in the competition.
But this week, one of Arie’s best friends spoke exclusively with WetPaint.com. Kristina Owen , Arie’s friend, tells news that she was told how the episode about Cassie Lambert goes down. And while Owen doesn’t reveal her source, she admits she know how the episode unfolds.
Wetpaint asked her “is it safe to say Emily eventually found out about Cassie and Arie’s history?” Owen breaks silence and says “Yes, she was made aware of it. But what’s been reported isn’t what really happened. Not even close.”
Previous news reports claim that Lambert, a producer on The Bachelorette, had asked Arie in previous seasons to join the show, but that he declined. The same reports claimed that Arie told friends on taking this season’s gig that he believed he could win the entire season.
But how did Arie get the show? Owen tells WetPaint that Arie got the show because of his own efforts, not someone else’s. Reportedly, producers were pursuing another race car driver to be part of the cast. During the audition process, Arie was allegedly used by the other driver as a reference. Producers allegedly called Arie to ask him about the other driver. At the end of the conversation, Arie, according to Owen, told producers that he would like to be considered for the season as well. She claims that within one month Arie was hired by producers.
While Arie allegedly told other friends that he only agreed to do the show because he thought this season he could win, Owen says that Arie didn’t have any expectations about his chances in taking the casting opportunity.
For now, spoilers are certain that the Bachelorette 2012 winner will be either Jef Holm, Arie Luyendyk Jr., or Sean Lowe. So far, Arie Luyendyk Jr has prompted the biggest reaction among show viewers, both positive and negative. And while the winner might be Jef, Arie or Sean, online spoilers also claim that Emily does find love with one of three men, and that they are currently engaged.
