One of the former stars of “The Bachelor” toured the newly renovated Mesa Arizona temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Luyendyk posted photos in which the two recently visited the Mesa Arizona Temple, according to reports.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Luyendyk are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Nonmembers of the church can visit temples during open houses.
Are Arie and Lauren Mormon? from
The temple opened again this past weekend for the first public open house tour since 1975
The temple’s open house will run from Saturday, Oct. 16, through Saturday, Nov. 20, except for Sundays (Oct. 17, 24 and 31, and Nov. 7 and 14). To make a reservation, visit mesatemple.org/open-house.
Interestingly, Luyendyk was the bachelor on “The Bachelor” during the same season as Maquel Cooper, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
Cooper said she hoped she could represent her religion on the show.
“Before I went on the show, I was so scared that I would be turned into a villain or that my words would be twisted or that I would disappoint,” she told me. “I really want(ed) to represent my family, my state, my religion, myself. I didn’t want to do anything disappointing. So I don’t feel like I was true to myself. I was really quiet whenever the cameras were on me. Or on interviews, I wouldn’t state my actual answers. I wish I had been more myself and more goofy with stupid faces that I make and say my opinions on how I felt about things.”
