The new season of The Bachelor starring Clayton Echard is already in production and yet, there are still a lot of questions.
Take, for example, the fact that we still don’t know who the host is! It’s such a bizarre situation given that this franchise tends to make these announcements in advance. Yet, they are also probably being careful given the mess of a hosting situation over the course of the past year. Remember how Chris Harrison was let go, and how the show even used a rotating panel of hosts during Bachelor in Paradise this season. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams co-hosted Katie Thurston and Michelle Young’s season, but we’ve heard nothing about them being given the full-time job as of yet.

So what are we going to be seeing moving forward? We do think that ABC and Warner Bros. want a full-time host / hosts for the entire franchise, and they may also just want a single one rather than the Kaitlyn / Tayshia tandem. We would imagine that over the next week they’ll have to confirm something, largely because Clayton is going to be meeting some of his contenders soon. (Technically, Clayton, a contestant from Michelle’s season, has not been confirmed yet as the lead; there’s just enough definitive evidence that it’s happening.)
We wouldn’t be opposed to Kaitlyn / Tayshia continuing to host The Bachelorette if ABC hires someone else for The Bachelor, but we’ll have to wait and see if that’s even a possibility at this point.
What do you want to see when it comes to The Bachelor moving forward?
