We鈥檙e only three weeks away from the New Year鈥檚 Day premiere of season 22 of The Bachelor with Arie Luyendyk Jr. After getting reacquainted with the latest leading man by binge-watching his first shot at love on TheBachelorette and meeting聽all 29 contestants, we鈥檙e just about ready to sink into a another season of roses, adventure, and, by the looks of the new trailer, LOTS of drama.

Luyendyk became known as the 鈥渒issing bandit鈥 on season 8 of TheBachelorette starring Emily Maynard, and it doesn鈥檛 look like he鈥檚 going to shed that title anytime soon. The latest teaser shows the pro race car driver making out with the contestants in Tuscany, Paris, and just about everywhere else, including on a jet ski while his lady sits backwards.

As is standard on the franchise, we also get plenty of waterworks as the women try to navigate their blossoming relationships with Luyendyk, as well as with each other. 鈥淚t鈥檚 going to be absolute mayhem and carnage, because women are ruthless,鈥 one contestant can be heard saying. There seems to be some particular tension around Bekah鈥檚 refusal to reveal her age 鈥 and who knows what else.

One of the biggest bombshells of the season promises to be the surprise arrival of a contestant鈥檚 ex boyfriend. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 wanna be on this show, I want my girl,鈥 the ex is heard saying. 鈥淚鈥檓 here to tell her that I want to marry her!鈥

It鈥檚 a surprise that leaves leading man Luyendyk angry, possibly because he has a proposal of his own planned. At one point in the teaser, he鈥檚 seen holding a ring, saying, 鈥淚鈥檓 gonna tell this girl that I love her and hopefully get down on one knee.鈥

It鈥檚 safe to say there鈥檚 a LOT in store! Season 22 of The Bachelor premieres on Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8pm on ABC.
