While I generally prefer the Bachelorette over the Bachelor, Desiree Hartsock and her lot of guys are not holding my interest. Am I alone? At this point, I don't know if I'll finish the season, so I have set my sights on the race to be the next Bachelor.
Imagine my surprise when a familiar name – not linked to Des – popped up!
Reportedly, Emily Maynard's ex-fiance, Jef Holm, wants the gig. "Jef has been in talks with ABC about being the next Bachelor," revealed an inside source. "He loves fame, so it's no surprise he'd be open to the opportunity."

The source continued, "Viewers remember Jef and were really invested in his relationship with Emily," adding, "She would not be happy about him getting a second shot and it could make for good drama."
Emily back in the spotlight? For that reason alone, I hope ABC passes on Jef, with one F. From my fingertips to ABC's eyes….
"Chances are, it's not happening," said a Bachelor source. "Producers aren't convinced Jef is ready to settle down. They just don't believe he's looking for marriage right now. Love maybe, but not marriage, which is really what matters when it comes to being the Bachelor."
Oh really? When did the Fleissmeister add that requirement?
Anyway, the Bachelor source concluded, "Anything's possible, but barring some very unforeseen circumstances, this is just a rumor."
Jef or no Jef, we all know that the next Bachelor will be a familiar face. Sigh. I miss the days when the Bachelor reveal was truly exciting, as he was 100% new to the franchise, and we got to know him at the same time as the ladies vying for his heart. Bachelor nation needs new blood!
TELL US – WOULD YOU WATCH JEF AS THE BACHELOR? ARE YOU ENJOYING DESIREE'S SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?
