Sounds like it won't be difficult for Arie Luyendyk Jr. to find love on this season of The Bachelor!

As you know, the "kissing bandit" will be back in full force on Monday, January 1 — but in the meantime, host Chris Harrison is dishing up what we can expect while watching the former race-car driver's quest.

The longtime TV personality told EW it didn't take long at all for the women to ~fall~ for the leading man:

"I'm happy for the people who knew and loved Arie, but then there's those that maybe they're a little younger or they didn't see the show and I'm actually more excited for them to get to know Arie. I'm excited for people to get to know Arie for the first time because he's a great guy. He's dynamic and yeah, he is a good kisser and he makes these women feel things very quickly. They fell for him very very quickly."

As for the contestants themselves, Chris couldn't have said nicer things (as expected):

"It's an incredible group of women — highly educated, very professional and fun. Arie connected with them incredibly well; I connected with this group really well. It was really a good, dynamic group and that's not to say that we're not going to have our moments, our drama and the competition and all that, but it really was a very good group. He was very blown away on night one after meeting everybody."

And even though Bachelor Nation was initially pretty skeptical about this pick for Bachelor (miss you, Peter!), Chris assured fans this is not a season to miss:

"I know some people that were like, "Why Arie?" Trust me. I'm fine starting slow and people saying, "Oh I don't know," and then word of mouth spreads and then people start talking and then the next [week], everybody's like, "You have to be watching this." I know that's the way it will be with Arie."
