'Bachelorette's Pantsapreneur JJ O'Brien Should be the Next 'Bachelor' & Here's 10 Reasons Why
Since we never want another Bachelor like Juan Pablo, I've taken it upon myself to start planting seeds into ABC's mind of who they should choose for the next season of the Bachelor. Now that Bachelorette Andi Dorfman took it upon herself to send home one of the season's most interesting guys—I'm talking about JJ the Pantsapreneur—I vote we start campaigning for him to be the next Bachelor.
We already know we can't have Marquel since he's instead joining this summer's spin off, Bachelor in Paradise, so instead we want JJ O'Brien. He may not have been right for Andi, but he's certainly right for someone.
Sure, the role of the Bachelor is traditionally handed to one of the top three men, but Juan Pablo was plucked from the middle of the pack. Unfortunately JP was chosen without anyone really knowing about his personality. But we've actually gotten an opportunity to get to know JJ throughout his time on the season, and that's how I know he'd be perfect for the titular role on the show.
Of course, ABC makes some pretty sketchy decisions sometimes, so to further convince them of this excellent decision, here's a list of 10 reasons why JJ is perfect for the next Bachelor.
If I have to sit through one more season with a boring Bachelor I will die. No hard feelings towards Ben or Sean but like, c'mon guys, snoozefest alert. JJ has way more pizzaz and will keep audiences entertained on his journey to find love.
EVEN IF HE DID IT TO PROMOTE HIS COMPANY THAT WOULD BE COOL
Many have accused Bachelor Ben Flajnik of going on the show just to promote his winery. Even if JJ did it for the same reason, I wouldn't even care because have you seen the clothes his company Hem/\Haus makes? Think bear hoodies and watch all your problems with product placement melt away.
HE'S A HASHTAG FREE SPIRIT
According to his Twitter bio, JJ is a #freespirit. Does that remind you of another Free Spirit we know and love? If you said Lucy Aragon, you'd be right! Turns out the two are even Twitter friendly. Maybe if he was the Bachelor she'd come on the show for a shot at the ring. And even if she didn't, the Bachelor could always use more free spirits. (And no, I'm not talking about alcohol because they could probably dial that back a bit after the whole Craig incident.)
HIS DATES WOULD BE INTERESTING
Interesting guys pick interesting dates. Sure, he's athletic so there would probably be some of those daredevil activities that Bachelor loves so much, but he'd probably also mix it up. If he was game for Andi's dress up like an old man date, you know he'd be open to some pretty unique outings as the Bachelor.
HIS ROSE CEREMONY OUTFITS WOULD BE OUTSTANDING
Are you bored of rose ceremonies full of guys in suits? Me too! Fortunately JJ likes to mix it up with bow-ties and patterned pants. Who knows, maybe he'd even wear his Coachella cassette tape jacket which he made and which I desperately need to own.
HIS INSTAGRAM DOESN'T HAVE A SINGLE QUOTE ON IT
Take how much Andi hated hearing "ess okay" and multiply it by a million and that's how I feel about Bachelor love cliches. It happens every season and I've had enough. I'm taking his Instagram's lack of inspiring quotes as a good sign that he at least won't be spouting any "I'm unmasking my love for you" lines at his masquerade ball date. (Yes, Nick, I'm looking at you.)
HE'S JUST LIKE US
If ever there was a time ABC needed a Bachelor who fans could connect to it's now. They need to redeem themselves after the disaster that was Juan Pablo.
HE'D PICK AN INTERESTING SET OF CONTESTANTS
JJ probably wouldn't like just any girl, so the show would have to bring on a really fun, unique set of women as contestants. That in turn which would make watching a lot more fun because boring contestants make for a boring season. (Just watch Andi's season if you don't believe me. All the funny guys are gone and all the super serious ones are left. Yawn.)
THAT WOULD RESULT IN AN INTERESTING BACHELORETTE
25 interesting ladies and only one can be the winner, which means the next Bachelorette would be chosen from JJ's cast of quirky contestants. That would make her season even better and not like any of those boring Des and Emily seasons.
AND THAT IS HOW YOU TAKE OVER A SHOW
Boom, we just changed the face of the Bachelor/Bachelorette to be less stuffy and more funny—all because JJ was the Bachelor. I'm not the only one who thinks this is a good idea, either. Don't take my word for it ABC, take the word of your viewers:
