Arie Luyendyk Jr., known for his appearance in the TV show The Bachelor, was selected as one of the 10 celebrity contestants to participate in the first season of a new reality competition show called The Traitors US. The show was filmed in Scotland and featured 10 reality TV personalities competing against 10 regular individuals.
In the first season of “The Traitors”, there was an issue with the format. The general audience was too focused on the television stars, which led to changes before the second season. As a result, “The Traitors 2” only features celebrities in the cast. The show has expanded its reach beyond reality television stars and now includes a boxer, a former basketball player, and even someone from the UK Parliament.
As the new season has begun, fans and former players have been discussing the previous season online. Arie Luyendyk Jr. has recently been causing some drama on social media, as he seems to still be upset about how The Traitors Season 1 came to an end.
While answering questions during a Q&A session, Arie took a shot at Cirie who emerged as the first-season winner after surviving as a Traitor all se ason.
“Have you & Cerrie spoken since the end of your season?” a fan asked Arie.
“that’s a no. she won it in a dirty way in my opinion but she’s has to live with that and that’s all ill really say. if i would have won in the end then i would have left the game with a clear conscience. a lot was left on the cutting room floor during endgame[sic],” Arie responded with many typos.
Arie claims that fans didn’t see everything that happened. He claims that Cirie didn’t play the game correctly, even though her goal (and his) as a Traitor was to steal the money from the other players.
Arie also tagged the other two players who made it to the end of The Traitors Season 1 and came up short of the money. Those players were Andie Vanacore and Quentin Jiles, two people who trusted Cirie but finished as runner-ups.
In Episode 7, the two remaining Traitors (Cirie and Christian de la Torre) sent an offer for someone new to join them. Arie accepted the offer to be a Traitor.
Arie then took part in Murdering Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick from Survivor, Christian and Kate Chastain (Below Deck) were then murdered, leaving only Arie, Quentin, Andie, and Cirie alive in the game.
A vote was taken to end the game, at which point any remaining Traitors would split the prize pool. Arie voted to end the game, which would have stolen the money from Quentin and Andie, allowing Arie and Cirie to split it. But Cirie voted to continue playing.
Arie then quit, revealing himself to be a Traitor. In the final vote, everyone left voted to end the game, giving Cirie the win as the only remaining Traitor.
However Cirie has responded to Arie’s claims saying that Aire tried to play the victim.
