As this season of The Bachelorette reaches its finale, America holds its breath waiting to see whether the show's star Emily Maynard will choose finalist Jef Holm or Arie Luyendyk Jr. to be her fiancé. However, fans will have to wait just a bit longer, as the decision will be revealed in next week's episode on July 23.
Yet while we have heard much about Emily's life story of loss and miracle over the course of this season, the two men she is choosing between still remain relatively mysterious: Exactly who are Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk Jr.?
Thankfully, the two keep very active Twitter accounts. In honor of the 8th season of The Bachelorette, here are 8 things you probably didn't know about Jef and 8 things you probably didn't know about Arie, all unearthed from Twitter:
Jef: After perusing Jef's Twitter, it is clear that he closely resembles a teenage girl. If you don't believe me, see for yourself ...
1) His signature pose is the peace sign (click on the Instagram photo).
