Scandal on the set of The Bachelorette! Apparently Indy Car driver Arie Luydendyk, Jr. has romantic ties to one of the producers of the show. He dated Cassie Lambert, a producer of The Bachelorette, who was also involved in the selection of Emily’s potential suitors!
Apparently the romance has been over for a while and Cassie is currently engaged to another producer on the show, Peter Scalettar, who she’s been dating for over three years (wait a second…Bachelor producers finding love with each other? That is a whole other situation!)
Side note: It’s interesting that The Bachelor has been so successful at finding love for everyone except for the lead of the show.
All we will say in our concerted effort to protect viewers from potential spoilers is that it appears Emily was informed of the strange connection…and is NOT happy.
One can only imagine what Emily must think of this, after seeing her on the infamous After the Final Rose episode where she annihilated Brad for sleeping with one other woman (not even two, Bachelor standard, as Ashley Hebert was too busy having a meltdown to enjoy her time in the fantasy suite). And we know Emily has a penchant for race car drivers. So, this could be a major situation on the show. Let’s hope so!
