Any newbies applying to be on Bachelor Pad Season 3 may want to consider pairing up with horse-whispering Bachelor 16 runner-up Lindzi Cox. Lindzi has been making the media rounds that Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson didn’t feel like doing after the Season 16 finale and, believe it or not, she told Entertainment Weekly she’s up for the awkward kissing contests and other bikini-clad antics of The Bachelor’s crazy spin-off.

"I think Bachelor Pad would be really fun to do,” Lindzi said. “No one's talked to me about it formally. But I think I'd love it. Games and winnin' some money — I'm all over that one." Well, if she wants to do it, she’s probably in. It’s the least ABC can do for dragging her through a contest she had no chance of winning.

It’s less likely that she’d ever get a chance to be the next Bachelorette, since the current Season 8 gig is already being filled by Emily Maynard, but EW asked anyway if she’d want the job — provided she’s still single next year. "Absolutely, I would consider it, if it was an option for me,” Lindzi said. “The experience I had on The Bachelor was so great. What an opportunity to go back and have my own chance with 25 victims. [Laughs] Suitors. … Just give me 25 funny, charming, good-looking, nice, NICE guys."

So no Dumpsville guys. And probably no more winemakers from Sonoma.
