Emily & Haley Ferguson Play ‘Bachelor’ Matchmaker With Former Contestants
If you are a member of Bachelor Nation who keeps up with the franchise stars after their seasons end, you are well-aware that a lot of the contestants end up hooking up or dating after The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I mean, that's probably why Bachelor in Paradise was created, so we could witness this phenomenon first-hand. I have a lot of ideas about who I would love to see get together, but I don't actually know any of these people. On the other hand, the Bachelor twins, Haley and Emily Ferguson, appeared on Ben Higgins' Bachelor season and the most recent season of BiP so they have plenty of inside knowledge. While promoting their new Freeform show The Twins: Happily Ever After? Haley and Emily share their ideas about which Bachelor alums should date, and they have some solid pairings.
"I'm just gonna throw it out there that I think Luke [Pell] and Raven [Gates] would be cute together," one twin says (it's hard to tell who's who during a conference call, but they were both into the Raven/Luke idea). The other sister agrees, "I think Raven and Luke would be perfect for each other."
As we all know, Raven was the runner-up on Nick Viall's season, and as a fan favorite on JoJo Fletcher's Bachelorette season, Luke could have starred in that same season, so it would be a poetic and ironic love story if these two ended up together. A ton of fans on social media are behind this hypothetical pairing. From the tweets, to the memes, to the pic stitches, Emily and Haley aren't alone in wanting this country couple to happen.
Emily and Hayley think that another pair of constants from Nick's season and JoJo's season would be a good match, too: Chase McNary and Danielle Lombard. "I just feel like they'd be a really hot couple," the twins say. And apparently the internet agrees with them yet again since there are already plenty of posts shipping Chase and Danielle L.
The twins also have some thoughts on former Bachelor star Chris Soules and former Nick Viall suitor Corinne Olympios as a possible couple. I don't know about this one, but they do bring up a pretty hilarious point: "Corinne likes corn and Chris Soules likes corn." True, but I just can't see Corinne acclimating to the farm lifestyle. The twins also suggest Danielle Maltby as a more realistic option for Chris. Hey, maybe they'll both appear on Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
Aside from discussing Corinne in a potential Bachelor couple, Haley expresses her thoughts on the outspoken contestant overall. "Emily and I are Team Corinne," she says. "We enjoyed her personality and how real and honest she is. Unfortunately, we've been so busy filming that we haven't had a chance to meet up with her or talk to her, but as soon as we get the chance, we would really like to hang out with her."
Let's hope that the Bachelor and Bachelorette alums listen to Emily and Haley's ideas, because I'm really picking up what they're laying down. Maybe their next TV show should be about matchmaking.
