'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. Spills on 'Chemistry' With Becca on First One-on-One Date (Exclusive)


Arie Luyendyk Jr. may be the Kissing Bandit, but he's also Prince Charming!

Only ET was with the Bachelor on his first one-on-one date of the season, when he treated Becca to an epic Cinderella-style date -- and five designer gowns!

"I mean, I was definitely trying to charm her," Luynedyk confessed to ET's Lauren Zima. "When I met Becca that first night, I could tell she was very humble...I knew that first date was going to be a date to spoil one of the ladies and I thought what not a better opportunity than to spoil her, because she's so deserving of it."

Becca, understandably, felt like "Cinderella," telling ET that the Bachelor delicately helped her step into a shoe before dropping the dress bombshell on her.

"I thought I was only going to get the one for the date tonight, and then Arie looked at me and was like, 'Well, I want you to have them all," she shared. "I think my jaw hit the floor. I got Rachel Zoe's gowns, which are amazing, I got a pair of Louis Vuitton [heels], which cost more than my rent, I think. And I got the kiss." 

For the skeptics out there, Zoe confirmed to ET that Luyendyk really did buy the gowns for Becca -- he certainly can afford it. The race car driver and real estate agent is worth a reported $4 million. 

"It was a real like, Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, Pretty Woman moment that I wished I was living," she gushed. "The fact that they just met was bizarre, because they seem very connected. They really did."

And Zoe wasn't the only one feeling the passion!

"Oh my god, he is such a good kisser. I can see why he got that nickname, the Kissing Bandit," Becca confessed. "We have a joke now going on at the mansion that he has pillow lips and they really are so soft! I want more!" 

"There was a lot of chemistry there, so it felt good to share that with her," Luyendyk noted, adding that he could see a lot of marriage "potential" with the 27-year-old publicist. "She exemplifies a lot of qualities I look for in someone."

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
