We are far enough on this season of “The Bachelor” where it would only be inevitable that we’d start to hear about various people potentially becoming “The Bachelor,” and it is with that in mind that we are happy to introduce the conversation here with a very simple question: Could Kaitlyn Bristowe really be the star of it?
Right now, she may be one of the most polarizing contenders. If you go on Twitter and read discussion about her, some people really love her (the confessionals, the humor), while others feel pretty much the opposite (the losing the bikini bottoms, her personality). Everyone on the internet has an opinion, right? Well, Chris Harrison at least has seen enough about this topic to give an opinion, and he told E! News that Kaitlyn is a contender he would like to have on her own season:
“Kaitlyn would be a blast. I would love to do it with her. She’s just fun. She reminds me a little bit of Michelle Money who I also love and adore. Self-deprecating, amazingly quick-witted sense of humor, she kind of gets it. I love that kind of show. It would be fun for me selfishly to do it with her.”
Harrison also commented on Britt Nilsson, another talked-about candidate from the season so far:
“Britt, on the other hand, would be a great show in a totally different way. I think it would be emotional, heartfelt, there would be a lot of tears, there would be a roller coaster ride. I think they would both produce very good shows in really different ways. And Britt’s obviously drop-dead gorgeous and I think men would be falling all over themselves to have a chance to date her.”
Interestingly, we’d say that neither one of these two are on the top of the hit list for contenders in our book. We’d say right now that Becca Tilley and Whitney Bischoff are at the top, with Carly Waddell being a likable underdog for the role. Jade Roper’s past probably rules her out, and of course whoever ends up winning cannot do it either.
We’re going to examine this further over the weekend, but what do you think of Chris’ comments right now? Share with a comment, and head over here to get some other “Bachelor” scoop! You can also sign up to get some more TV updates on all we cover via our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: ABC.)
