Home town dates and fantasy suites are behind us and we are nearing the finish line for Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette. The episodes have been creating quite a bit of buzz, controversy and strong opinions. This season of The Bachelorette really does seem to be the most dramatically discussed season ever and has created a tremendous amount of buzz, controversy and strong, differing opinions.

Bachelor Nation is gearing up for Bachelor In Paradise which has a two-night premiere on Monday, August 5 and Tuesday, August 6. Spoilers for both these shows seem to be at an all-time high and not just on Reality Steve. It seems as if all mainstream media is openly discussing both The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise happenings as if they are common knowledge before the scenes even air.

Regardless of your opinions toward Hannah, Luke, Mike Fleiss, etc, and even though the next season of The Bachelor (Season 24) won’t air until January 2020. The thing is everyone already has definite feelings on who the next Bachelor should be, including Chris Harrison.

If Selected for The Gig, Mike Johnson, 31, Would Become the First Black & Military Veteran

“Of course he’s a contender [for Bachelor],” Chris Harrison, told People Magazine. “How could he not be a contender with that smile? He’s one of my favorite people we’ve ever had on the show. He’s a love of a man. I don’t know him that well, and I consider him a really good friend….He’s just a sweet guy…He gives the best hugs, the best smiles and the best advice. He’s just a really good man and yeah, of course he’s a contender.”

In response to all of the support he has been receiving, portfolio manager Mike Johnson, 31, of San Antonio, Texas, tells People, “I’m not going to lie, it’s an awesome thing for people to feel that way.” At the same time, Johnson says he wants people to know that he doesn’t “play with the idea of love at all.”

Mike goes on to explain, “….I take love so seriously and for people to say they want me to be The Bachelor, I am so grateful. I’m appreciative. But I want to make sure that if that was something that I were to do, that the 30 candidates are definitely there for the same reason. I definitely feel like I could find love in this process.”

It seriously sounds as if Mike has already received some good media training. Those are the sound bytes producers want their star to be saying. And no matter what happens, Mike already has Demi Lovato’s support. The singer has been very vocal about her interest in Mike since the start of Hannah’s season.

Peter the Pilot’s Image Has Taken a Nose Dive During Hannah’s Season

Peter, Peter, Peter. He started off the season with a squeaky clean, almost perfect image.  With their wholesome blonde hair, blue eye model good-looks, Hannah and Peter seemed like the real-life version of Barbie and Ken. On his hometown date, we discovered that this pilot takes his safety precautions seriously, with condoms at the ready in his Mercedes Benz. Then Hannah boasted to Luke about having some fun in a windmill (which was their fantasy suite.) The pilot has also been traveling around with some major baggage (AKA his ex Calee Lutes.) Calee feels betrayed because Peter ended their five-month relationship to go on the show.  She warned, “He’s definitely a charmer and a smooth talker….He definitely didn’t go on the show for the right reasons. I believe he went on it for the chance at fame….I know he’s not ready to settle down, so I think it would be a huge mistake if he were to be The Bachelor. I hope they choose someone who is truly there for the right reasons. (Calee) I would hate to see him hurt more people.”

Tyler Doesn’t Need a Publicist Because He Has His Mom

And as reported on July 16th, Tyler’s Mom has been heard saying he’s going to be the next Bachelor. Tyler is a fan favorite and certainly checks off with all the major requirements for being The Bachelor. Many of Reality Steve’s followers have paid extremely close attention to Tyler since the beginning since Reality Steve originally predicted Tyler would receive Hannah’s final rose. Could the role of The Bachelor be his conciliation prize? If only Tyler was older than 25. After Colton and Hannah’s seasons, the show really needs more mature contestants who are ready to settle down and tie the knot. Everyone will just have to wait and see if Mike Johnson can pull it off.
