But since the “Four Better or Worse” name should now be free, maybe we could find four other Bachelor folks for the roles. William Holman, Erica Rose, Michelle Money, and Graham Bunn? Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi, Kasey Kahl, and Erica Rose? Brad Womack, Emily Maynard, William Holman and Bentley Williams? Yes? No? Needs more Erica Rose?
