With The Bachelorette nearing its ending point this season, the search for the next man to star in The Bachelor is in full swing. Although there are quite a few guys to choose from this year, there are really only a few men that stand out as potential leads in the new season, according to E! News.
Topping the list for next season’s Bachelor are Ben Zorn and Ben Higgins. Given the fact that The Bachelorette featured Kaitlyn and Britt dueling it out in the opening episode before the show narrowed it down to one woman, The Bachelor could do the same this season. That being said, both men have had a great run on the show so far and would be ideal candidates for the spot. If the show did opt for both, then fans would certainly have a tough decision to make.
Besides the two Bens, another possible candidate is Nick Viall. Despite a rough introduction, this might be his year to finally shine. Viall has done great throughout this season of The Bachelorette, and perhaps his third run at it will prove to be his best.
At the same time, while JJ and Clint proved to be more interested in hanging out together than pursuing a lady, such is not the case for Ian. Ian’s backstory — a Princeton graduate, model, and someone who escaped death — would definitely add some depth to the show.
Although Shawn B. is likely out of the running for the next Bachelor due to his limited screen time this season and his Snapchat woes, there is a sliver of a chance that he’ll be selected. However, a far better candidate to be the next Bachelor is Chris “Cupcake.” The raw emotions he displayed in last week’s episode would transition easily to the new season, and who doesn’t like emotional meltdowns?
Meanwhile, although fans likely have their own opinions as to who should be the next Bachelor, Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe recently revealed who she would pick for the spot. The Bachelorette stated in an interview with People that she thinks Ben H. would be the best choice for the job.
“I think Ben H. I think he’s just a well-rounded and solid guy who knows what he wants. Even though he is only 26 I feel like he’s a very mature 26,” Bristowe revealed. “He is such a gentleman, he’s funny…he’s a really, really, really, solid guy, and, he’s extremely handsome.”
The Bachelorette airs Monday nights on ABC.
