There has been a lot of debate about what needs to be banned in America to keep citizens safe, which has evolved into extremely heated topics of argument. While those deeply divisive issues rage on, a representative in the state of Minnesota has just suddenly introduced a highly unusual ban that will affect all women. This has never been done before but the representative says he has a really good reason for it.
Although we live in a free nation where people can travel to states of their choosing, that right may soon be eliminated as far as the state of Minnesota goes. All it takes is 1000 citizens to agree on it before the ban is put into place.
Whenever someone from your hometown or state appears on a reality tv show, they automatically become one of your favorites and you root for them to win. The reality dating show, The Bachelor, has accumulated a cult following around the country, as viewers eagerly watch each week to see what woman the suitor will pick at the end the season, for her hand in marriage. After the shocking finale just aired this week, in which the Bachelor, Arie, asked Minnesota native Becca for her hand in marriage over the runner-up, Lauren, the state’s GOP Rep. Drew Christensen made a proposition of his own.
After getting to know the female contestants over a few weeks in a very controlled and environment, it’s not surprising that Arie’s love for Becca wasn’t real, despite the proposal being real. After the finale aired, it was learned that Arie broke off the engagement with Rebecca and broke her heart, as she was invested in their relationship. Arie then immediately went back to runner-up Lauren, and now the two are engaged.
Women around the country rallied around broken-hearted Rebecca, as did Rep. Christensen, who did something huge for her and all of her female supporters.
Fox News reports:
“Bachelor” fans were left in shock Monday night — not because of who Arie Luyendyk, Jr. chose to ask to be his future wife, but because of how quickly − and cruelly − he changed his mind.
Viewers on social media, including a Minnesota congressman, joined in on the conversation about the shocking finale. GOP Rep. Drew Christensen vowed to draw up a bill to ban Arie from visiting his state because of his treatment of finalist Becca Kufrin, a Minnesota native.
“If this gets a thousand retweets I’ll author a bill banning Arie from Minnesota,” Rep. Christensen tweeted following the finale.
Why all the backlash? During the finale of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” Arie, 36, proposed to Becca in what was supposed to be the start of their long and magical lives together, but their engagement was short-lived. It was revealed during the “After The Final Rose” special that Arie had a change of heart and decided to break it off with Becca because there was another woman on his mind — the runner-up, Lauren Burnham, whose heart he had broken when he left her behind in Peru at the final rose ceremony.
“I was in love with Lauren and it’s hard to separate that feeling of loss. With Becca, I feel an immense amount of guilt. It’s not fair for her to be in a relationship where someone is half in. I have to follow my heart. Just thinking of the possibility of something with Lauren is making me want to risk it all,” Arie said.
Aside from the congressman trying to ban Arie from visiting Minnesota, viewers of the show are also showing their support for Rebecca in a shocking way.
“The sudden breakup sparked outrage among fans, who said Kufrin “deserved better” than the 36-year-old race car driver. Fans even began sending payments Monday night to the jilted “Bachelor” contestant through Venmo, a digital payment app, with notes of encouragement, according to Fox News.
Whether or not you agree with the way Arie left things with Becca it’s best that he did it before it was too late or even care about reality television, there’s a big takeaway from all of this – It is amazing to see so many people rallying behind a stranger to show support in a time when there’s so much hate in our nation and world. That’s the true love story at the end this dramatic romantic reality series.
