Did Arie Give Becca and Lauren the Same Ring? Let's Zoom In, Bachelor Nation
"Neil Lane? Hi! Yes, yes, everything's OK. Well, I'm actually calling because I need another ring."
We're guessing the conversation between the world's biggest "wanker," Arie Luyendyk Jr., and The Bachelor ring designer Neil Lane sounded something like that. It's only been two days, Bachelor Nation, but we've already seen two proposals and two gorgeous engagement rings . . . we think? After the 36-year-old race car driver proposed to Becca Kufrin on Monday night's episode, he popped the question yet again on Tuesday night during the live "After the Final Rose" episode. Now, every fan is whipping out their magnifying glass to take a closer look at the rings, which look suspiciously similar.
Following the on-air engagement, happy couple Arie and Lauren appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the host drilled the couple with hard-hitting questions, like, "Did Neil Lane have to come up with two of these?!" Arie said yes, he did, and also shared that he didn't get the original ring back from Becca. (Insert fans begging Becca to pawn the rock.)
In an interview with People, the jewelry designer revealed that he had a weird feeling about Arie's indecisiveness, which he picked up on while they were discussing rings. "Arie picked a gorgeous ring for Becca and genuinely spoke so highly of her, but he kept coming back to this other ring and saying how perfect it would be for this other girl — who it turns out was Lauren (Burnham)," he shared. "When I was told he'd broken off his engagement to Becca and was considering proposing to Lauren, I offered him a selection of rings . . . but he ended up picking the same one for Lauren that so intrigued him in the first place, back in Peru. It was like kismet."
Thankfully, he did not get the girls the same ring. And because we know you're wondering, it's believed that ABC paid for Arie's second ring, given the assumption that Becca eventually gave hers back to the designer (get all the details on Lauren's ring here).
Read on to see a close-up look at both Becca's and Lauren's rings, and then check out some hilarious tweets from people who were all wondering the same thing.
