Preemptive warning for the next season of The Bachelor: No musicians allowed. With Bachelor in Paradise in full, trashy swing as Hot Girl Summer comes to a close, we can officially begin to campaign for our next leading man who doesn’t have a secret girlfriend back home. ABC vice-president Robert Mills confirmed to E! News that Hannah Brown’s former trio of suitors — Mike Johnson, Peter Weber, and Tyler Cameron — are the finalists to become the new Bachelor, with no other men being considered from past seasons.
“We listen to what people want to see,” Mills said. Johnson, who’s confirmed to appear on Paradise as the season progresses this summer, would be the first black Bachelor lead should he be chosen. Weber and Cameron, meanwhile, have been dealing with some minor drama: Weber’s ex-girlfriend alleges he dumped her to make a name for himself on reality TV and windmill Wikipedia pages, while Cameron, who accepted a date from Brown during The Bachelorette’s live finale, might now be dating model Gigi Hadid. So many roses, so little time.
