‘The Bachelor’ exec says Sean Lowe, Arie Luyendyk Jr. candidates

Contrary to what the tabloids have been saying for several months now, nobody has been officially offered a deal to be “The Bachelor” before the season early next year, and official contracts have been signed. So who are the people most likely to hand out roses to a series of future “Bachelor Pad” contestants worthy suitors from across the country? According to Mike Fleiss, the top three current choices are pretty expected.

In a post on Twitter, here is what Fleiss said in a post that is at least half comedic:

“Finalists: Sean, Arie, Roberto, Ryan, [and] Tebow”

When it comes to the last two names on the list, it’s pretty clear that Fleiss is joking. Tim Tebow is for one going to be taking part in football at the same time in which the season is being held, and that is without even bringing into the equation the fact that the New York Jets star seemingly does no have any interest at all in the job. Meanwhile, we have a feeling that “Ryan” is a reference to Ryan Bowers, who ridiculously claimed on Emily Maynard’s show this year that he was already looking forward to being “The Bachelor.” (Oh, how we wish he was talking about Ryan Park from Ashley Hebert’s season instead…)

Sean, Arie, and Roberto are of course the three serious candidates for the job, and they all bring something good to the table. While Sean is clearly the All-American guy with the body that drives the ladies crazy, Arie probably has the most interesting profession and could make for a good way to theme the season versus a pair of insurance agents. Roberto has been supposedly named the “favorite” for the job, though with him Fleiss is going to have to cope with the fact that not every casual fan may remember Ali Fedotowsky’s season a few years ago.

Who do you think is the most worthy candidate of the three serious names? We want to hear from you below! If you want to hear some more about Arie in particular is not giving up on love following his time on the show, be sure to pay a visit to this link.
