Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s “Bachelor” contestants were recently revealed, and Gossip Cop has a full photo gallery of this season’s women ahead of tonight’s premiere on ABC. The 36-year-old race car driver will meet 29 different women from across the country who will compete for his affection. Check out the photos below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Luyendyk Jr. was announced as the new star of “The Bachelor” on “Good Morning America” in September, five years after appearing on Emily Maynard’s season of “The Bachelorette.” During the interview, Luyendyk Jr. said of his upcoming gig on the show, “I was a little skeptical, because we’ve been in talks for a few years about doing it. I just went in with an open mind, an open heart, and it’s just kind of hit me right now that I’m here.”

And on keeping his participation in the show a secret, Luyendyk told Michael Strahan, “I kind of kept things really under wraps. I didn’t know how this would turn out. It’s been such a quick turn of events, and my family doesn’t know, so now they know!” Of course, before the official announcement was made, it was widely speculated that Peter Kraus, the runner-up on Rachel Lindsay’s season of “The Bachelorette,” would be the next “Bachelor.”

Among the beautiful ladies in contention to become Luydenyk Jr.’s wife are a real estate agent, a sports reporter, a graphic designer, a television host, a nurse, a physical therapist and many more. The race car driver follows in the footsteps of Nick Viall, who starred on “The Bachelor” earlier this year. Unfortunately, he and then-fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi have already split. Luydenyk Jr., however, is ready to begin his search for true love. Check out the full gallery below!
