Bachelorette suitors

OMG. Who else is super excited for the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise this summer? There is bound to be plenty of drama, tears, and of course, seriously hot men -- including a few dudes who didn't capture Andi Dorfman's heart on The Bachelorette.

When the cast of Bachelor in Paradise was revealed, the names of Andi's suitors were left off the list, simply because we still don't know all of the men who have been eliminated.

But after this week's rose ceremony, we can go ahead and let out a big "woo-hoo" for one man who we'll most definitely be seeing in Mexico.

Are you ready?!?

Marquel Martin has joined the cast of Bachelor in Paradise, so we'll still have the pleasure of getting to know him a little bit better this summer.

Marquel Martin

Who wouldn't want to have a chance at dating this dude? He's not only good looking, but he's smart, a gentleman, and he also has a great sense of humor, which is attractive enough in itself.

But it sounds like Bachelor in Paradise could prove to be just the beginning of his reality TV career, as there is also some buzz going around about Marquel being the next Bachelor.

Um, yes please! He's totally perfect for the job. And I know ABC usually winds up casting the third or fourth runner-up, but fans still got to see enough of Marquel to know that he'd be amazing as The Bachelor.

And he already has one thing going for him that most other leading men and women of the shows don't as far as why he should be given the gig.

Duh. Fans actually like him. We want to root for him. We want him to find true love. Because for whatever reason, he seems like he genuinely went on the show to meet someone special and settle down, unlike most of the other dudes. (Don't even get me started on how fake Josh Murray is.)

I guess we'll have to wait and see whether Marquel meets his match on Bachelor in Paradise before we get ahead of ourselves. But if he leaves Mexico a single man? ABC would be nuts not to give him another shot at finding TV love.

Do you think Marquel would make a good Bachelor?
