With all the buzz about TV shows in the works for both Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Ben Flajnik, it seems like, sooner or later half of the citizens of Bachelor Nation will have their own shows. Fine by us! There are plenty of big personalities from seasons past who we think definitely deserve more air time. Here are just some of our show concepts — have your people call our people, ABC!
The Show: “Princess Reform School”
Erica Rose was and is a total princess, but we think her experience on VH1’s You’re Cut Off! taught her to temper her tiara-loving ways. That’s why we think Erica would be the perfect choice to lead a princess bootcamp, where she helps transform divas into do-gooders. Other than her very active involvement in various charities, can you think of a better way Erica could give back to society?
The Show: “Bro-ing Out with Chris Bukowski”
Chris is such a fun, huge personality that his TV show concept doesn’t really need to be all that complex. Our pitch? “It’s a show about Chris Bukowski doing stuff and being Chris Bukowski.”
That’s it. He’s already kind of Bachelor Nation’s Most Interesting Man. When he’s not partying in Florida, he’s making awesome ideas come to life, like the sports bar for ladies he’s opening in D.C. We imagine there’d be plenty of guest appearances from fellow Bachelor Pad bros like Tony Pieper and Kalon McMahon. Honestly, we’re really not sure why this isn’t already happening, people!
The Show: “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”
We could not get enough of Ashley’s insights and sense of humor in her vlogs during last season of The Bachelorette. In fact, we like them so much, we think she should have her own chat show that airs after each episode and discusses the episode that just aired. Having been on the other side of the camera, Ashley has plenty of insight and commentary to offer, and judging from her vlogs, she’s also hilarious.
