The Next Bachelor Apparently Had A Girlfriend Just A Couple Of Days Ago

By Chad Burris

ABC announced Thursday that Arie Luyendyk Jr., the runner-up on the 2012 season of The Bachelorette, would be the next man to lead The Bachelor. Luyendyk told that since he appeared on The Bachelorette, he's had just one serious girlfriend and they broke up 18 months ago. But Sydney Stempfley, a 26-year-old from Phoenix, says she was dating Arie days before ABC's announcement.

Stempfley has Instagram pictures to prove she and Luyendyk were together recently:
