ABC's Choice for Next 'Bachelor' Is Reportedly Down to 2 Super Hot Guys

Bachelorette suitors

The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe hasn't yet chosen the man of her dreams, but that isn't keeping the show's producers from scouting its 2016 Bachelor from the cuties she is dating — and from the contestants that impressed Season 18 Bachelorette Andi Dorfman. Rumor has it the next Bachelor will either be someone most of us have had quite enough of — or a very different, sweet, and young cutie pie who nearly stole Kaitlyn's heart.


According to Reality Steve, Bachelorette Season 18 winner Josh Murray and 26-year-old Ben Higgins are serious contenders for the next Bachelor — but it looks like producers are more keen on getting Higgins in (hallelujah). No offense to Murray, whom I'm sure is a lovely guy, but after his bizarre breakup with Dorfman and that whole embarrasing Twitter war, you'll have to excuse me if I don't find him all that exciting right now.

Higgins, on the other hand, is an interesting choice precisely because he is unassuming and seems totally sweet and down to earth. Not a diva bone in his entire body.

If he is selected, the tall, dark-haired charmer — who was confident enough to not sweat it when Nick Viall arrived on the scene and stole Bristowe's heart — will be the youngest Bachelor in the history of the show.

I suppose one thing we can glean from this juicy bit of gossip is that Higgins is probably not the man Bristowe eventually selects (although, with this show, anything can happen). As Reality Steve points out, one thing we should probably expect to see is an increase in Ben screen time as producers will want us to get to know him better and fall head over heels for him. Note to producers: no need. Just ask Ben to keep posting more photos of himself holding babies — done deal.

Who do you think would make a better Bachelor — Ben Higgins or Josh Murray?
