Well, well well if it isn’t Luke Pell.
According to US Weekly, this country singer/war vet is the front-runner to be the next Bachelor, which doesn’t surprise me AT ALL. He was pretty much the only likeable dude that wasn’t completely boring on Jojo Fletcher‘s season (and she walked away with Jordan Rodgers, who was more douchey than likeable). If ANYONE from the last season would be the next bach, it would be Luke. But again, not ideal.
“It’s looking like Luke right now as the next Bachelor, but there are a couple others on the back burner in case he doesn’t work out,” a source tells Us. Others being considered include Robby Hayes,Chase McNary and Wells Adams.
Pell, 31, instantly became a fan favorite as one of JoJo Fletcher’s contestants on season 12 of The Bachelorette. The real estate developer, 25, often gushed over their explosive chemistry on the ABC series.
“I’m running out of words to describe the level of passion that is Luke and me together,” Fletcher said during the June 27 episode. “Luke and I have a very emotional relationship, but we have, like, that physical connection down. Like, we have it down! Every time we kiss, I get the feeling where I have to, like, take a breath. I have to take a moment because that spark is just … it’s crazy.”

Wells is HOT but kind of awkward and not right for the franchise. Robby is a lumpy, overly-tanned Will Forte and Chase? Boring AF. Luke is clearly the best option, in my opinion.
