ABC has been looking for their latest Bachelor so they can get started on their newest season as they are desperately trying to fill the ratings void they are feeling right now. In an E! online exclusive, Chris Harrison discusses the possibilities and whether or not we may end up seeing Chris Lambton or Jake Pavelka this season. Keep reading to hear what Chris had to say!
After record breaking ratings for both Bachelor and The Bachelorette the past season, ABC is desperately trying to find their newest Bachelor. The show’s host, Chris Harrison recently spoke to E! online about their possibilities and said “We are starting production soon, and we’re going to need somebody.” and then he laughs and goes on to say “If you know any good bachelors out there, let me know.” Obviously he was joking, but he was not joking that they are scrambling to get someone on for the show.
So what about the possibilities of Chris Lambton or Jake Pavelka, who recently stated he would like another shot at the show? While there was no mention of Jake Pavelka, Chris Harrison did say that he is still open to the idea of Chris Lambton or even bringing in a completely new guy this season. Chris goes on to say “I’ve actually fought for both.” with both being Chris Lambton or a new face. He then closes with “Can we go back to somebody who’s an unknown? My theory is yes, we can do it. It’d have to be a good story. But I also walk the fence and subscribe to the theory of, ‘When you show up, you know Ali and you’re invested. Whether you love her or you hate her, you’re vested and you’re going to watch.’ On the other hand, I just want to get someone new, break the cycle!” So for now folks, it looks like they are still undecided, but hopefully we will know who will be filling the void soon!
