The Bachelor 2017 Frontrunners Revealed

The Bachelorette 2016 has only just recently come to an end, but already, the search for the next Bachelor is in full swing. Granted, I don’t think the list of rumored frontrunners to be named the new lead on The Bachelor will surprise anybody.

According to a source in touch with Us Weekly, Luke Pell is the frontrunner to be The Bachelor, to the surprise of absolutely no one. However, the fourth-place finisher on JoJo Fletcher’s season isn’t the only person being considered.

“It’s looking like Luke right now as the next Bachelor, but there are a couple others on the back burner in case he doesn’t work out,” the source says. Apparently, the others being considered include runner-up Robby Hayes, third-place finisher Chase McNary, and seventh/eighth-place finisher Wells Adams.

With that said, nothing is set in stone until producer Mike Fleiss makes his announcement, so I guess viewers hoping to see someone from Bachelor In Paradise ascend to the lead role on The Bachelor shouldn’t entirely give up hope just yet. But it’s pretty unlikely The Bachelor is going to be anyone but Luke Pell. It seems as obvious now as Ben Higgins being announced this time last year. I guess we’ll find out soon enough. But for now, all speculation is fair game!

But who do you think would make a great Bachelor? Sound off in the comments!
