Get Ready for Janu-Arie With These New ‘Bachelor’ Teasers

With just a few days to go until Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor debuts on New Year’s Day, the folks behind the scenes are continuing to tease us with peeks at the action. The latest clips include a new nickname for Luyendyk, the man himself on one knee (!), and even… taxidermy?

Though the race car driver was deemed “The Kissing Bandit” during Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette season, it now looks like he’s earned himself a new title: Mr. Dreamy! Can he live up to the name? We’ll just have to watch and find out.

The fact that he’s the Bachelor is already a dream-come-true for many, including Luyendyk himself, who is “sorry, not sorry” about finally getting his chance to be the man in the middle of the romantic action.

He may have second thoughts about that when he gets into the thick of it, though. As we’re reminded in another clip, this isn’t a straightforward situation. Not only are there “four girls named Lauren, three with tears pourin’, two Beccas squealing, [and] one [who]’s got him kneeling,” but there’s also “sooo much craaazy!”

Then there’s 26-year-old Kendall, a taxidermy enthusiast, who explains, “I’ve never had a relationship over a year, but with taxidermy, I can keep it forever.”

We’ll be able to find out more about Kendall’s, um, hobby and the rest of the contestants’ quirks when Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor begins January 1 on ABC.

What teaser has you most excited to check out the next season of The Bachelor? Let us know @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
