With Bachelor In Paradise starting to come to a close, fans of The Bachelor are all asking the same question: Who’s going to be the next bachelor? One of the guys currently chasing love on the beach in paradise? Someone from seasons past like the two most recent bachelors, Nick Viall and Arie Luyendyk, Jr.? Though the ABC powers that be haven’t made their announcement yet, we do know who Becca Kufrin would choose from her season of The Bachelorette.
Apparently, she wants to see one of the men from her season get their own chance to be in charge of their journey and find love. Though she still has good feelings towards all of her guys, she’s especially rooting for Jason Tartick, the Seattlite she sent home right before fantasy suites, to land the leading role. “He’s such a sweetheart,” she told E! News. “I want all of those guys to find somebody like what I found in Garrett, but Jason will always have a soft spot in my heart.”
It’s not just that she wants him to find her person just like she found hers. She also thinks that he’d do a great job in the role, saying that his “exuberant personality” would serve him well. “He’d go all in on every single date and make every girl feel comfortable,” she explained, saying that if he scored the coveted lead role, it’d be “such a fun season to watch.”
Jason’s got another fan in fellow Bachelor Nation alum Ashley Iaconetti. “Where is the petition to make Jason the next Bachelor?” she wrote on Instagram. She even shared a poll on Twitter asking fans to weigh in with Jason as only one of two options, then tagged two of the big-wigs behind the decision, show creator Mike Fleiss and ABC Senior Vice President Rob Mills. How’s that for a ringing endorsement? As for whether he actually gets the role, well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
