Who will be the next star of The Bachelor? That’s the question that fans are still wondering, even though the new season is set to start taping shortly. We recently learned that Arie Luyendyk Jr. will not be doing it, and Chris Harrison weighed in recently about what we can expect.
Leave it to Chris Harrison to tease us until the very last minute about who could possibly be the next star of The Bachelor. Chris recently spoke with Rumor Fix, and told them: “We have narrowed it down considerably. So it is very imminent it, and will happen any day now.” Narrowed it down is an as understatement! The original contenders (or at least we all thought) were Roberto Martinez, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and Sean Lowe. But Arie Luyendyk Jr. announced that he would not be doing the show, and Ryan Seacrest announced that Roberto Martinez was not doing it either.
So, that leaves one choice as far as fans are concerned – Sean Lowe. Has Sean Lowe won the spot? Not so fast! According to Chris Harrison, the show: “can’t just go on public emotion or popularity,” because in the end: “we need a guy who is extremely sincere, open, and wants this to work.” But isn’t Sean Lowe all of the above? Other rumors claimed that Ryan Lochte was interested in the show, but now reports claim he will not be the next Bachelor. So, it’s either Sean Lowe or a mystery man. Why oh why can’t ABC just make the dang announcement already?
Who do you want to see as the next Bachelor? Comment below and let us know!
