Drew Christensen, who serves as a state representative for Minnesota, made good on an old promise recently. The politician wrote a bill which would ban Arie Luyendyk Junior from the Land of the 10,000 Lakes if passed.
Christensen took to Twitter to state he was a “man of (his) word,” and the state would “adopt a zero-tolerance policy” of having the reality star subside within the state, or even pass through it.
The policy claimed “every person in the state has a right to live free from” the presence of The Bachelor star. As it was previously reported, Drew wasn’t pleased when Arie executed an about-face and went for the runner-up, Lauren Burnham, following his rejection of the Minnesota native, Becca Kufrin.
To make matters worse, the episode which aired on the fourth of March showed Arie crying while explaining that he was more interested in the blonde sales executive.
The Republican took to Twitter on the night of the episode and said if there were 12,000 retweets he would draft legislation which would have Luyendyk effectively banned from the state.
Some would assume Christensen is a big fan of the reality series if he was willing to take such an action to have Arie banned from Minnesota.
However, according to Drew, he wasn’t a regular viewer until the show drew attention to his state. Furthermore, Drew and Kufrin both went to the same university which made the series more personal for the politician.
Christensen noted it was “cool” to have a Prior Lake graduate on the television show. He added, “she handled herself very nicely.” On the other side of things, Kufrin will get another shot at love in the next season of The Bachelorette which begins on the 28th of May.
