Courtney Robertson in Talks for Bachelor in Paradise — Who Else Is?
She’s ba-ack! Or, she might be anyway, if all our dreams come true and Season 16 The Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson heads to Bachelor in Paradise this summer. E! Online chatted up the model, 30, and found out that she’s definitely toying with the idea of finding love on an island “somewhere outside of the country” (which is where Jef Holm says it will be).
"Yes, I'm in talks," Courtney tells E! News. "I'm really excited about the prospect. Who doesn't love paradise?" The only obstacle? Her book tour, as her memoir, I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain comes out on June 24. But considering Bachelorette filming ends in the next few weeks, that shouldn’t be a problem. Producers and film crews are totally used to back-to-back shooting schedules, considering they started filming for Andi Dorfman’s Season 10 just two days after the Bachelor finale aired.
Also in consideration — besides Jef, who has previously said he’s in talks — are some of the hottest, best contestants from the last few years. The Bachelorette Season 8 and Bachelor Pad 3 hottie Chris Bukowskiis among those on the short list, and confirms that he’s already passed the requisite STD test. Neat, pal — way to go. And speaking of Season 3 Bachelor Pad alumni, redemption story Kalon McMahon is also taking calls about it.
If you ask us, that little bit of R&R could be perfect for Arie, and we have a feeling it’d be just as super for us to watch him possibly rekindle things with one-time lady friend Courtney or make up with (or fight) former bestie Jef … The show is all about love, but they didn’t say it had to be without a little bromance along the way.
