The last time fans saw Josh Murray was on Bachelor in Paradise, where it seemed like he had found true love with Amanda Stanton. Though their relationship didn't work out, it seems like Murray has successfully put the past behind him and is living life to the fullest. The hosts of Bustle's Bachelor podcast checked in with Murray to find out what he's been up to post-Bachelor in Paradise, and if he's done with reality television for good.
"I think I need to stay away from the dating shows. I don’t think that’s ever going to happen again for me," Murray tells Romper's Senior News and Entertainment Editor Allison Piwowarski and Bustle's Associate TV Editor Martha Sorren on this week's episode of Will You Accept This Podcast? (which you can listen to here).
So, it seems like competing on The Bachelorette again or returning for a season of Bachelor in Paradise isn't in the cards for Murray, but he assures Allison and Martha that he's not totally opposed to being on other shows. He says that he'd make a big return for a competition-styled show that involved skill — but he's also not in any rush to jump back in to the TV world.
"I was joking around with my friend from Famously Single, Willis McGahee, and he was like, 'Josh, man, we should do Amazing Race or something like that," he said. "Stuff like that would be fun, but, honestly, I’m just really focused on me and just settling down in life right now and enjoying life.”
But even without starring in a new reality TV show, Murray still has a lot of exciting projects on the horizon. He says that he's venturing into the modeling world. And, who knows, maybe a tell-all book from his time on The Bachelorette is in the works? You can hear all this thoughts on that (and on Andi and Nick) in the above episode.
