It’s been seven years since Arie Luyendyk Jr. stepped away from racing and five years since he made an appearance as the runner up in the 2012 season of ABC’s The Bachelor. Well, he’s back.

This time, Arie Jr. is the man himself on the show, and ABC couldn’t resist making a fun little pun in its announcement via Twitter.

If you’re the type of person who’s so into this show that you’d like to see the live, breaking announcement, well, we’ve got that too from GMA.

Congrats, Arie. I hope you find the checkered flag to someone’s heart. Or…whatever.
