Picking out the perfect Bachelor is kind of like picking out the perfect piece of pizza. It's a nearly impossible task with tons of great contenders, including everyone's favorite Bachelor Pad winner, Michael Stagliano! The Stag is a major fan favorite in Bachelor Land, and apparently he was on the shortlist for this past season of The Bachelor!

Naturally, the role ultimately went to Sean Lowe, partly because Michael was too busy skipping around the forest with his fellow Bambi friends, and partly because he found himself a doe, a deer, a female deer.

"There were certainly talks about it," Michael reminisces on his time as a Bachelor hopeful. "I was never officially offered anything, and after dating Emily [his now-fiancee] for a few weeks I withdrew my name from the running anyway. I knew I already found the reason I would do the show in the first place."

Awwww, The Stag! This singer songwriter and his lucky bride-to-be are tying the knot next year in Chicago, and we're sure plenty of Michael's Bachelor Family will be in attendance. With any luck, someone will film the nuptials so us plebeians can get in on the action! After all, ain't no party like a Bachelor Pad party.
