Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham: First Iceland, Then a TV Wedding!

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham in Iceland

The infamous Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancee, Lauren Burnham, have “fled the country.” Those are Arie’s words.

Specifically, the two have embarked on a trip to Iceland where they can leave their past — mostly just Arie’s brutal breakup with Becca Kufrin — behind them.

But before long, the two of them will be back … and looking to get married.

Arie shared this happy photo on both Twitter and Instagram.

On Twitter, she shared it with a slew of others (below) from his and Lauren’s trip to Iceland, and wrote:

“Officially fled the country.” He followed that text with the least fitting use of a halo emoji that we’ve ever seen.

On Instagram, his caption got a touch more personal. He wrote:

“Posted this because I sent this to my mom and she said she’s never seen me happier. So much beauty here in Iceland including this one.”

By “this one,” his blandly pleasant caption means Lauren. Who is, of course, very beautiful.

E! reports that, per their source, Arie and Lauren went to Iceland because they needed a break from being on television.

“They wanted to get away from the madness and have a real normal vacation just the two of them as a newly engaged couple.”

People watch The Bachelor — even the American version — in plenty of places, all over the world. But … it doesn’t have nearly the sort of cultural omnipresence in Iceland.

There’s nothing wrong with romancing each other at home and living on takeout, but given the couple’s current fame (and Arie’s current infamy), they’d have to worry about unprofessional delivery drivers asking them questions or asking for a selfie.

In Iceland, they can be a little less high-profile and enjoy a visit to one of the most gorgeous countries on the planet.

The source continues, however, talking about the couple’s future plans.

And it sounds like they won’t remain TV-shy for long.

“Although there has been a lot of backlash surrounding Arie, the couple is really pushing for a TV wedding.”

Well, Arie proposed on camera. They might as well tie the knot the same way.

A lot of people would tune in to watch … or possibly to hate-watch. Some might wonder if Arie will have yet another on-camera change of heart.

“Lauren has been telling everyone that she is so excited to get married and wants it to happen very quickly.”

And perhaps Arie is on board with that rush to the altar.

“After everything that they have been through, they are ready to just seal the deal and spend forever together.”

Unless Arie changes his mind again, anyway.

Realistically, the media frenzy surrounding these two and the story of how they came together will die down over time.

Oh, they’ll always be interesting, but people will process Arie’s …read more
