No one is exactly clamoring for Lauren Conrad to be The Bachelorette, but while playing Truth Pong (yes, that's a thing) with Ryan Seacrest, The Hills alum addressed the idea of being the next rose-giver, after Season 8’s Emily Maynard.

"No! Why would I date on TV again?" Lauren answered. "I would love to do something that doesn’t affect other people in my life. I like working and I had a really good experience with television, but I don’t want my friends to have to sign a waiver to hang out with me, you know what I mean?”

Oh, don’t worry about waivers and confidentiality agreements — your friends will just sell you out to the tabloids as anonymous “sources.” They’re covered.

But it sounds like Lauren’s out for Season 9 — phew, one down! Besides, she’s already kind of been The Bachelorette anyway, dating or just being linked to guys like Brody Jenner, Stephen Colletti, Kyle Howard and Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough.

It’s waaaaaaaay too early to be speculating, but so what — who do you want as the Season 9 Bachelorette? A celeb? A “fresh face” newbie? Someone from a past season of The Bachelor? Speak up!
