Bachelor Nation needs your signature. On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin's ex-boyfriend Ross Jirgl crashed the reality dating competition to get his girl back — and won over America instead.
The Stanford University football coach flew to Peru and drove five hours to confront Arie Luyendyk Jr. and try to convince Becca to give him a second chance. "She's the love of my life, I want to marry her," he said on the reality dating competition. "She's been on my mind every single day for the past year… It's the only girl of my life, one of my dreams, love of my life, and I came here to get her because she's the only one for me."
Unfortunately, Becca was not impressed with her Notebook-loving ex and sent him back home. However, the same can't be said for viewers, who instantly started campaigning for Ross to hand out roses next. "This #Ross thing is the grand gesture so many of us want and never get. #Becca doesn’t deserve this lovely, loving man. Let’s make #Ross the next #Bachelor," one fan tweeted before another added, "Ugh wait this Ross guy is adorable… he literally flew to Peru for Becca ? Ross for next Bachelor." And there were more…

Within minutes, a petition appeared on Change.org, asking ABC to crown Ross as the leading man of the franchise. "Ross Jirgl needs to be the next Bachelor. That is all," Jac K. from Charlotte, NC, detailed on the petition. As of right now, it has nearly 100 signatures, but we expect that number to keep on growing.
So, why didn't Becca take back her former flame of seven years? The brunette beauty opened up following the dramatic episode and revealed she had no regrets. "I stand by my decision to not accept an unhealthy relationship back in my life. I will never doubt or question that," she wrote before sharing a GIF of Leighton Meester's Gossip Girl character, captioned, "When someone you don’t care for shows up to the party."

And Ross might not have gotten the girl, but as of right now, he has over 11,000 followers on Instagram — and counting. Seriously, have you seen his abs? He has our vote. Love The Bachelor?
