I have to admit that I am a part of Bachelor Nation. I watch The Bachelor and all of its spin-offs. I’m even contemplating trying out for the next season. Needless to say, I am pretty invested in the franchise. But I have to keep it real and tell you that I could not get into the “Happily Ever After” spin-off show with Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.
Don’t get me wrong I love Ben, but I just can’t see this show getting a second season.
The upcoming season of The Bachelor has been super controversial and highly talked about even though filming hasn’t even wrapped up yet. Ever since Nick Viall was chosen for the leading role, Bachelor Nation was super surprised by the decision and curious about what his season will have to offer. You don’t have to wait too much longer, Nick’sBachelor season has an official premiere date- thank God.
Everyone wants to know what Nick’s season will be like. Even though Nick and host Chris Harrison are both waiting to see how it all ends up for the eternal runner-up, we at least have one thing set in stone and that is the start date for the upcoming season.
Nick was already on three reality shows in the Bachelor franchise, so why not bring in someone from Bravo? Yes, it’s a super random idea, but it would probably bring some additional viewers to the series. The only real issue that I see is that Real Housewives of Orange County is a Bravo show which is a part of the NBC Universal family and The Bachelor airs on ABC, but that might be irrelevant since Lauri hasn’t been a full time Housewife in years. But anyway, let’s get back to the story here.
They sound a little bitter to me. After all, the trend for this franchise has been to pick the star for the next season from last season’s pool of contestants, which includes both Chad and Robby. Not to mention that Luke Pell has been doing a press tour of complaints after he was rudely shafted from the role at the last minute. With so many differing opinions about Nick, I have a feeling that a lot of people will be watching The Bachelor next season.
The fans from Bachelor Nation were collectively shocked when 2-time Bachelorettealum Nick Viall was named as the next star of The Bachelor. Everyone and their grandmothers thought that it was between Luke Pell and Chase McNary from JoJo Fletcher’sBachelorette season. After all, that’s how the franchise typically works: the star of one season is a cast off from the season before.
So no one ever thought that Nick who was on the show two and three seasons ago was even in the running and when I say “no one” apparently this included Luke as well because he thought that he was chosen to star in the Bachelor and he was all set to film.
Is the FOURTH time the charm for Nick Viall? Or just pathetically famewhorey?
That is the question facing Bachelor Nation this morning. In case you missed it, Nick, who was runner-up on Andi‘s season of the Bachelorette, then hijacked Kaitlyn‘s season of the Bachelorette and was runner up again, then failed to find love on Bachelor in Paradise, was announced as the next The Bachelor lead, which many thought would be one of JoJo Fletcher‘s rejects, specifically Luke Pell or Chase McNary.
Chris Harrison, the most dramatic reality TV host ever, appeared on GMA this morning to explain the decision.
Love him or hate him, it is pretty interesting that The Apprentice star Donald Trump went from being a reality TV star to a presidential candidate. It got me thinking about celebrities that I enjoy watching on reality TV who I would love to see run for president.
To make it clear, I don’t necessarily think any of these people should actually be president, just that it definitely would have been entertaining if we had them in the mix at some point during the nomination and election processes. Also, this list is meant to be a complete joke, so chill out with the political commentary and just have fun with the “what if” political possibilities.
