We like to imagine that during his times off camera, Chris Harrison spends his life building marionettes from scratch. Except, you know, with real people. Like a puppetmaster of our emotions. Assuming that’s true, we’re just going to go with the idea that he’s responsible for making our Bachelor Pad dreams come true. If it comes back this summer — and Reality Steve seems pretty positive it will — which of Juan Pablo Galavis’s girls should pack their bikinis?

The easy answer would be all of them, if we had our way. But Chris weighed in on one particular gal, Lucy Aragon, in a recent call with reporters. He’s on board with the idea that the “free spirit” of Season 18 should certainly have a slot on the summer reality show.

“She’d be awesome. I love Lucy. I loved her spirit. I loved having her around the house. I mean, yes, she wasn’t right for Juan Pablo but, if we do a Bachelor Pad or whatever, I would have Lucy on anything,” Chris gushed about the beautiful Santa Barbara native.

We totally agree, since we feel like we missed out on a lotta Lucy during the season. Possessionista writer Dana Weiss mentioned in a column — and many of the Season 18 girls confirmed in tweets — that fashionable Lucy was like the fairy godmother of the house, loaning out her expensive dresses to the girls for Rose Ceremonies. Since her exit, Lucy has hung with plenty of her house pals, and we have to think that’s probably because she’s as sweet and fun as she seems.

Lucy tweeted today that she’ll be revealing a big surprise on Monday’s “Women Tell All” special, and we have our fingers crossed that she’ll be telling the world she’s coming back to our TVs when Bachelor Pad returns (again with the finger crossing) this summer.

“Whoever you are, embrace it and own it. And that woman knows who she is and man does she own it. And I love that. I love that about her and I love having her around. She was a good spirit to have around the house,” Chris continued about Ms. Lucy.

See? If he’s in charge of casting, she’s either going to end up on Bachelor Pad — or perhaps as his girlfriend!
