… and then there were six.
With The Bachelorette having just wrapped up its latest intense season, attention now turns to The Bachelor.
Specifically, attention now turns to one question in particular: Who will be the next Bachelor on ABC?
Many past suitors have already made their pitches, with Wills Reid, for example, saying he hopes to be the first African-American Bachelor.
Viewers, meanwhile, appear to want Jason Tartick as their main man next winter and spring.
In a call with E! News this week, however, ABC executive Rob Mills – the network’s Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials and Late-Night Programming – said the pool actually goes far beyond the two men mentioned above.
“There are probably six strong contenders,” Mills says.
Some of these contenders, such as Reid and Colton Underwood, will appear this summer on Bachelor in Paradise, meaning ABC is not in a major rush to arrive at a final decision.
“What’s great about this is that we have some time, we obviously have Paradise, it can air and we can see if anyone from there who’s really popping,” Mills told E!.
Okay, but let’s get to it.
One of the following six men will be your next Bachelor…
PETER KRAUS: He was the runner-up on Rachel Lindsay’s season and he was passed over at the last-minute last year in favor of Arie Luyendyk Jr. last year.
But Mills said the personal trainer is still a fan favorite.
“People like Peter, I know. I have to say we hear that a lot.
“Certainly people absolutely adore Peter. You never know who it’s going to be.
“As we saw with Arie, we look at everything, not just the last season. Who knows who it’s going to be.
