It’s pretty obvious Arie Luyendyk Jr. is falling for Bachelor contestant Bekah M. — and fans are convinced it’s because the petite brunette looks just like Arie’s ex-fling Courtney Robertson. And we have to admit, the resemblance is sort of freaky, especially thanks to Bekah’s once long hair.
“No wonder Arie likes her!!! Tbh I thought they were the same person lmao,” one fan wrote on reddit before another added, “Wow, I didn’t notice this last night but cannot unsee now. She looks like Courtney and prime Lindsay Lohan’s love child.” Watch the video below to see a side-by-side split of the two women!
Arie recently opened up about his relationship with Courtney — and revealed that they still keep in touch. “We’re actually still really good friends!” the race car driver turned real estate agent told E! News. “I’m her landlord, randomly.” However, Bekah has nothing to worry about when it comes to lingering feelings. “We’ve known each other obviously for years and years,” he added. “And the romantic side of our relationship, that was way in the past, so we’re just really good friends.”
The 36-year-old also shared how he turned to the controversial reality star for some advice before his big return to the reality dating competition. “It’s fun to talk to her about this whole experience because she’s been through it,” Arie explained. “She’s been engaged [via the show], so before I left we had a good conversation about it. But yeah, we still talk.”
Bachelor Nation fans will remember that Courtney, 34, had only good things to say when it comes to Arie and his ~skills~. In her memoir I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain, she described how the “kissing bandit” reached out to her following her split from Ben Flajnik, which led to the “best sex” of her life. “Why was it so good you ask? Arie’s incredibly passionate and utilizes his entire body in his lovemaking,” she wrote. “And he knows exactly what positions make a woman feel comfortable and satisfied.” Fast forward a few years and she also admitted that the duo was still hooking up. “I adore Arie,” she told Us Weekly in 2016. “He’s a great friend who I like to make out with from time to time!”
We have a feeling Bekah’s doppelgänger status is only going to help her in the long run. But if you can’t wait to find out who Arie picks, don’t worry, we have spoilers! Plus, don’t forget to join our Bachelor Facebook group for the latest news and updates!
