Interview with ARIE from The Bachelorette

So basically this Saturday was one of the best days! All because the one and only Arie, from Emily's season of The Bachelorette, came to Rexburg, Idaho! He came to host a party and concert at Sammy's - home of thee most amazing pie shakes, fries and coolest people.

 But not only was I able to chill and snap pics with Arie all night, but I also was given the chance to sit down and interview him! 
Was I dying? Yes. Is he even cuter in person than he was on the show? Yes. He was seriously the nicest thing ever and it was so fun to hang out and get to know him! We had the best time chatting about his time on The Bachelorette, what he's doing on the racetrack and his dating life. 
Here are a few of the pictures I captured during the night and our interview! 

WARNING: for the interview I was using the 'voice memo' app on my iPhone to record his answers. I pressed record and went about the interview. After it was done and he left, I realized that I had only recored 3 seconds of the conversation and the rest wasn't even recording! I was furious to say the least. So I only have my memory to go off of!  That is why his answers aren't in direct quote form... sorry Arie!

Q: What are you up to these days, what's going on in your life?
(He is a race car driver, IndyLights winner, Indy 500 starter, and a current IndyCar 2-Seater Driver)

Arie: He's been focusing on racing and preparing for his race coming up on April 6th in the Stadium Super Trucks Series. He's been working on his campaign 'The teamArie truck' to help raise money for the upcoming race season. Allowing fans to contribute and have their picture placed on Arie's Stadium Super Truck or helmet during his season. After the race season, his helmet will then be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to Red Cross. (Good luck Arie!)

Q: How has life been after The Bachelorette?

Arie: He said it's been crazy but so much fun. He had a lot of fun being on the show and has made some great friends because of it. He's been traveling doing different events like the one at Sammy's.

Q: What did you think of Sean's season? Were you happy with who he chose?

Arie: He enjoyed watching Sean and knows that he is happy with Catherine. He was rooting for AshLee and thought they would make a good couple, but found out before the finale that Catherine won and was okay with it and is looking forward to meeting her. He's happy for Sean and wishes both of them the best of luck. 

Q: Would you ever consider being the Bachelor?

Arie: He doesn't know if he would ever really consider it. He said he has kind of "been there done that" and doesn't think he would even have the chance. He joked that he's getting old (31) and so people wouldn't want to date him. 

Q: Do you still talk to Emily?

Arie: (Laughs and smiles) He doesn't still talk to her or see her. He said, "that ship has sailed." He also mentioned that he has moved on from it. 

Q: You and Jef are quite the BFF's now, do you guys text and hang out a lot?

Arie: He said that they are super close and hang out whenever they can. They often travel together and Jef occasionally comes down to Arizona (where Arie is from) to visit him. He said that Jef was going to come to the Sammy's event, but he was on vacation and wasn't able to come.

Q: Are you dating anyone?

Arie: No, he's not dating anyone right now or interested in anyone in particular. (phewf!) He said he goes on dates, but doesn't have a girlfriend.

Q: Describe your type of girl.

Arie: He likes all types of girls. There isn't one certain type that he goes for or likes. Blondes, brunettes, Latinos, American, he likes them all! He said that he does kind of want to date someone who didn't see him on the show; that way they can get to know him from scratch and not judge him based on what they saw on the show. 

Thanks for hangin' with us Arie! You were so sweet and we had the best time. And a big shout out to Sam for setting everything up!

  7. Mondaу night is pіzza night аt our house, with Mοm's homemade vegetable pizza at the top of the list of favorites. All you have to do in order to obtain these coupons is to go to the internet and search for the one that suits you needs then just print them. For several weeks I had been seeing this commercial on television telling about a new pizza and since I love pizza I decided to purchase one on my next shopping trip.
