Even though "Juan-uary" has come and gone, it's hard to believe The Bachelor is actually onto hometown dates already! That means before you know it, Juan Pablo's disappointing, annoying, cringe-worthy, chauvinistic "aventura" to find true love will be over, and we'll know which of his ladies will be lucky enough to move on and dole out her own roses! And it looks like Renee Oteri, the single mom and realtor from Sarasota, FL, who is by far the least neurotic and most grounded contender left standing, would be more than game!
When YourTango recently asked her if she'd be okay with becoming the next Bachelorette if she doesn't end up being given Juan Pablo's final rose, Renee replied:
Yes. If it doesn't end in my favor ... I do want to fall in love. I do want to get married. I do want to have kids, more kids. And that's my ultimate goal. Obviously, I'm hoping that this does work out for me — trying to not think too far ahead of that.
Wow, if that sweet, media-savvy response wasn't enough to woo ABC, I don't know would be! By playin' those cards so close to the vest, it's obvious she has this game down pat. Plus, she's the fan favorite from this current season. Well, at this point, we're actually hoping she doesn't end up with JuanPabs, because a.) she deserves better and b.) she'd be the perfect Bachelorette.
Sure, there's been buzz that she may not get the gig, because ABC won't want to do back-to-back seasons of single parents. But why not? She, unlike Juan Pablo, actually seems so self-assured as a parent that she doesn't constantly talk about her son. I'm sure he'd be a part of the picture, but I get the feeling she wouldn't be using him to her advantage the way JPG has used Camila.
So, load up the roses for Renee, ABC! I have a feeling she's one Bachelorette all of Bachelor Nation will be rooting for -- from start to finish.
What do you think about Renee Oteri as the next Bachelorette? Or would you prefer to see someone else get the gig?
