According to Us Weekly, the star of Season 11 is in talks to return. ABC would say only that the new Bachelor will be announced soon. Host Chris Harrison tweeted, "I'll be sitting next to the new Bachelor Monday night at Dancing W The Stars!"
The 37-year-old Austin native famously rejected both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft in his final rose ceremony. Pappas went on to become the next Bachelorette. Her engagement to winner Jesse Csincsak didn't last long, but she has since found love with Stephen Stagliano, another Bachelor contestant's twin brother.
While this wouldn't be the first time that a competitor has become the Bachelor, Womack would be the first repeat Bachelor. In fact, he was the last person cast as the Bachelor or Bachelorette who had not appeared in a previous season as a competitor.
