‘The Bachelor’ debate: Is Drew Kenney the only candidate from Desiree Hartsock’s season?

DrewIt’s that time of year: Time to relentlessly speculate on the future of “The Bachelor” franchise! The way in which the selection for the next star of the show goes is pretty simple. By the end of “The Bachelorette” airing, producers at least start to formulate a good idea in their head as to who they would like to see on the show in the future. Then, they start to actually gauge America’s interest (since they are the viewers, and executive producer Mike Fleiss is good for that), and then make sure the actual party is interested.

Therefore, this is starting to be the time where names are at least brainstormed … but it could be slim pickings for this season, mostly thanks to the fact that a good many guys from Desiree Hartsock’s season aren’t that memorable. As much as Zak Waddell has redeemed himself, he’s still the guy who showed up the first night with no shirt on. Meanwhile, Chris Siegfried really has no major story arc thus far, Michael Garofola is a non-factor, and while Brooks Forester is a possible candidate, we think that Desiree’s going to pick him in the end.

So this leaves us with Drew Kenney, the proverbial last man standing. He has a story arc with his family, a clear amount of passion for Desiree, likability, and promises that he could still surprise us in the future. Does this make him “The Bachelor” for sure? No, but we imagine that he could end up being one of the top candidates, including Jef Holm if producers listen to the recommendations of Sean Lowe and others.

Do you think that anyone save for Drew could be “The Bachelor” from this season? If you want to read some more news related to Monday night’s new “Bachelorette” episode, including photos and video sneak peeks, all you have to do is click here.
