But before we delve into potential issues with a few of the 15 lovely ladies who will be sticking around -- and he's kissed them all -- let's take a look at who exited the mansion Monday night.
Spoiler alert: If you haven't watched and don't want to know more, stop reading now.
Bye, Bye, Bye
Lauren S., the 31-year-old social media manager from Dallas, seemed to really hit it off with Arie at first, and that's why he chose her for a one-on-one date in Napa Valley.
Things looked promising, too, until poor Lauren S. prattled on about her career and family so much that it turned Arie off. Seriously, the only thing missing was the sound of crickets every time his eyes glazed over during their dinner conversation. No rose for you!
Annaliese, 32, had an even more devastating dismissal. She tried to make Arie kiss her, but he didn't want to, and when her passive aggressiveness didn't work, she confronted him. This didn't go well either and Arie sent the event designer from San Francisco back from whence she came. No rose for you either!
These two had no chemistry, and Annaliese knew it. The only reason she wanted Arie to kiss her so badly is because he had kissed literally every other remaining bachelorette except her. As it turns out, Annaliese doesn't just fear dogs; she fears rejection.
"I'm scared I'm not going to find love," Annaliese said with a wild look in her teary eyes. "It's my worst fear."
Awww. We'll miss you, Annaliese, and your childhood dog reenactments, too.
And then there was Bibiana. Although he had kissed her in the past, Arie grew increasingly repelled by the 30-year-old's unhealthy obsession with her arch-nemesis, Krystal. She also created a secluded love area replete with pillows and a telescope, but instead of kissing Bibiana, Arie skipped her and made out with at least three other women at the romantic locale.
Like Annaliese, Bibiana dreaded the rejection she knew was coming. In fact, fear gripped her so tightly that the executive assistant from Miami prayed to Jesus. Honey, Jesus doesn't care about "The Bachelor." Everybody knows he watches "The Voice."
Bravo to Arie for pruning his love garden and leaving only the most desirable arrangements. But Arie isn't in the clear yet -- three of the women he gave roses to may prove to be thorns in his side.
Krystal, 29, is the perfect reality TV villain but would make a terrible mate. To be fair, it is quite possible the fitness coach from Montana is putting on an act every time she diabolically interrupts other contestants' dates with Arie. But no sane man would want to settle down with a petty, competitive woman.
Bekah M. is competitive, too, but after winning the first rose of the night, the professional nanny proved she's going to be tough to defeat. But Bekah's got a secret the producers have helped her keep: She's much younger than the 36-year-old race car driver.
It's not clear how much younger Bekah is, but she is at least 21, right? Arie is really into Bekah and her flattering pixie haircut, but will he change his mind once he learns the truth?
Lastly, there's Tia, the physical therapist. The self-professed Southern Belle can wrestle if she has to, something she proved during the BLOB (Beautiful Ladies of the Bachelor) challenge while sipping on Moonshine. But her desire for Arie to rescue her coupled with her description of him as "safe" could backfire for the 26-year-old Arkansas native.
"The Bachelor" Season 22 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
