Three candidates from The Bachelorette 2011 are ideal as the next Bachelor of 2012. Ashley Hebert has mentioned Ames Brown and Ryan Park would be great as the Bachelor next year in various interviews. Host, Chris Harrison, says three men from Ashley’s season will be looked at seriously for next year’s show, according to Digital Spy.
The Bachelorette 2011 has been a good platform for viewers to eyeball who will be great as The Bachelor 2012. Harrison says Ames Brown and Ryan Park are definitely good candidates and there’s one more ABC may be looking at as well — one of the finalists in the last episode. He adds that it’s a nice problem to have more men to choose from for a change.
The Bachelor franchise has recycled finalists and contestants for years. In a recent interview, Chris Harrison doubts that will change because the show allows viewers to learn more about contestants before they have their own journey to find love. It’s a method that’s proven to work well in maintaining high ratings for ABC. Unfortunately, Brad Womack failed twice at finding love on the show.
Who would you like to see as The Bachelor 2012? Do think Ames, Ryan, or the first runner-up on Ashley’s season is someone to consider for next year?
The Bachelorette 2011 finale airs Monday, August 1 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
