Reality Steve is fantastic at finding out spoilers for “The Bachelor” franchise. He lets fans in on the secret scoop long before the season even begins to air. This season of “The Bachelorette” is no different and for months now Steve has been insisting that farmer Chris Soules will be named the new “Bachelor” for the 2015 season. He has been saying this until today! Reality Steve went to his blog on Thursday to share with fans that he is not sure who the next “Bachelor” will be.
While Steve still feels that Chris has a good chance of being named the new king of roses, there is another man in the running for the job. Arie Luyendyk, Jr. is also a strong candidate for the gig, which is set to air in January 2015. Arie was the runner-up in Emily Maynard’s season of “The Bachelorette.” He is a race car driver and definitely a fan favorite.
Radar Online reported the news initially on Tuesday about the apparent competition between the two men. They said Arie has already been filmed some in Arizona and that a personal trainer was sent by the franchise to get him ready for the TV screen. So where does this leave farmer Chris? Reports are also out that he has been speaking with the production crew and is flying out to Los Angeles to meet with Mike Fleiss himself. They are making it interesting and are keeping everyone guessing, including Reality Steve!
Steve says that professionally he would probably go with Arie, who would bring more “sizzle and shock value.” Personally he said he would choose Chris, a safe bet. Chris was just sent home by Andi Dorfman as the third runner-up on the current season. Either way one of these guys will probably be the new “Bachelor” and these two men are complete opposites! Which of these two would you rather see handing out roses?
Nobody is sure when the announcement will be made. In the past it has been made during the live “After the Final Rose” showing, but with “Bachelor in Paradise” beginning in a week that is not definite. Until then fans do not want to miss the season finale of “The Bachelorette” and “After the Final Rose” which will both air Monday night on ABC at 7 p.m. CST.
