Is Arie Luyendyk Jr. Competing on ‘Dancing with the Stars’? He Responds!
On Sunday, “Extra” spoke to Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham at INDYCAR's season opener, the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, where they dished on the future!
When asked if Arie would do “Dancing with the Stars” like other fellow “Bachelor” contestants, he commented, “No, I think I made it pretty clear that I'm not going to do 'Dancing with the Stars.'”
Arie elaborated, “I'm pretty confident that my TV career is probably coming to an end, just because we want to settle down… I want to focus on her and our relationship.”
Though “Dancing with the Stars” isn't in the cards, what are their immediate plans? He revealed, “We're going to Iceland and then Barcelona, so we're gonna take a little vacation. Then, we're going to go to Virginia Beach and pack up her stuff and drive across the country [to Arizona].”
Lauren chimed in, “We need this time away from all the distractions and stress, so it'll be fun.”
Once they move to Arizona, they'll work on some life-changing plans! She shared, “We definitely want to get married first, but we have talked about starting a family.”
Arie was beyond “excited about it.”
