Arie Luyendyk Jr. is opening up about his battle with COVID-19.
The 39-year-old race car driver and reality star, who was the star of The Bachelor in season 22, recently tested positive for coronavirus and he’s opening up about his experience.
“Many of you have been wondering why we haven’t done Bachelor Brunch, why we’ve been so absent on social media and why I’m sitting like 25 feet away from the girls. It’s cause I actually tested positive for COVID,” Arie told his fans on Instagram.
Arie has been quarantining away from his wife Lauren Burnham and their daughter while he awaits a negative test result.
He said, “It’s been rough. I gotta say it’s not been easy being separated. I’ve been on the other side of the house; Lauren has been really sweet, she’s keeping me fed. She just slides some food outside and then I go get it.”
Arie shared his experience of trying to get a rapid test on Friday (November 27).
“Still waiting… rapid tests are really hard to come by here (everyone is out of them) Had to go to an independent lab which charges $125. They do 300 tests a day and run through them before lunch,” he said.
