We have our final four on The Bachelorette: Jordan, Robby, Chase and Luke. Tradition indicates that the next star of The Bachelor will be one of these men (most recent Bachelor Ben Higgins, for example, came in third on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette).
My prediction is that it will be Luke Pell. He has many of the traits of a good Bachelor - he's very handsome, masculine but thoughtful, has a good sense of humor, is an ex-military country boy. The only thing he lacks is a highly charismatic personality. He's soft-spoken and relatively reserved for a reality TV player, which could ultimately disqualify him from being the Bachelor, especially since he'd be following Ben Higgins, perhaps the most articulate Bachelor there's ever been.
The other two probable runners-up, Robby Hayes and Chase McNary, would not be good Bachelors. Chase is too boring and Robby isn't popular enough. He allegedly tried to pay Bachelor in Paradise alumni to promote his Instagram account in an attempt to gain him more followers. Neither of them has the likability required to carry the show.
The best case scenario for a Bachelor from the top four would be that it doesn't work out between JoJo Fletcher and probable winner Jordan Rodgers, they announce their breakup during After the Final Rose, and Jordan is announced as the next Bachelor. Jordan as Bachelor would be excellent. Perhaps if he was the star, ABC could get him and his estranged brother, superstar NFL quarterback Aaron, to reconcile on-air. That would be amazing.
If that doesn't happen, ABC might have to pull from the lower ranks, which isn't unprecedented (Juan Pablo Galavis finished seventh on Desiree Hartsock's season). There are some well-liked personalities in the top 10, namely Wells Adams, James Taylor and Derek Peth. Any of those three would be a somewhat unconventional, interesting choice for the Bachelor, and each seems capable of carrying a season.
Or - and this is a long shot and would surely be a disaster if it happened - ABC could pick Chad Johnson. Chad would destroy the show, but it would be a mesmerizing trainwreck.
Tell us who you think should be the next Bachelor. We'll reveal the poll results on Friday, July 22.
