New ‘Bachelor’ Rumors Swirl But We Know Which Hot Guy Should Be Next

TV Ericka Sóuter May 13, 2013

The roses from season 17 of The Bachelor have barely wilted and the world is already dying to know who the next sexy single looking for love will be. Admittedly, Sean Lowe is a hard act to follow. He wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but damn was that dude hot. Among the names being tossed around as a legitimate candidate? Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough. As much as I love seeing Derek bust a move on the dance floor, I can't imagine watching an entire season of him making the moves on 25 women. In any case, his reps laughed off the idea. Though there are plenty of other high profile guys who would make perfect rose bearers. Take a look at our top picks for the next Bachelor.

Who would you like to be the next Bachelor?

1Ian Somerhalder

His recent split with Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev means he's on the market. I am sure there will be plenty of sexy singles who want to take a bite outta this guy.

2Ryan Lochte

He may not be much of a conversationalist, but who cares. We already know he looks amazing in a swimsuit and he cleans up nice too.

3Bradley Cooper

Those eyes. That smile. He doesn't have to utter a word to make the ladies melt. And after a string of starlets, he's ready for a regular gal, don't you think?

4Taylor Lautner

Now that he's legal, it's okay to ogle. At 21, he may not be looking for a spouse, but I am sure the contestants won't mind one bit. Team Jacob all the way!

The divorced dad needs some love. Can you imagine all the smooth, sexy lines he will lay on all those women? And there is no way he wouldn't serenade them too.

6John Mayer

In recent months, the singer has been trying to rehab his bad boy rep. The Bachelor could help him show off a softer, sweeter side.

7Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Is there a cuter actor out there? You never hear about JGL dating some fame hungry starlet or heiress, which leads me to believe he wants a normal, sane love life. Who knows? He could be the Bachelor who makes it to the altar.
