Who Should Be the Next Bachelor: Jef Holm, Sean Lowe, or Arie Luyendyk, Jr.?
Never mind Emily Maynard’s choice — she already made it months ago and we’ll see it play out in The Bachelorette Season 8 finale on July 22. (Side note: We can't wait!)
Assuming she picks one of her final three — Jef Holm, Sean Lowe, or Arie Luyendyk, Jr. — as opposed to keeping all of them in polyamorous love nest or losing her mind and dumping them all, we’re going to be left with two decent options to be the next Bachelor. Yes, we’ve heard (and love!) the rumors that the gig is already going to Roberto Martinez, but it ain’t over till it’s over — and until a name is made official, we should keep sharing suggestions.
Back on July 2, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss polled viewers about Emily’s finalists: “OK, #Bachelornation ... Of the four remaining guys, who do you think would make the best Bachelor?”
Bless his bobblehead heart, but we’re not even going to include Chris Bukowski. He’s busy on Bachelor Pad 3 and never really had the level of fan devotion as Jef, Sean or Arie.
So let’s say all options are open for the Season 17 Bachelor — who's our guy?
