When Kristina Schulman got her heart broken on Bachelor in Paradise over the summer, there was some definite buzz about her being a future Bachelorette. And after her most recent Instagram post, that buzz is back. Fans thinks Kristina should be the next Bachelorette, and after seeing a photo of her surrounded by roses, it's hard not to agree. After all, not everybody can pull off a pose like this one.
Schulman shared the pic on Wednesday, when she was showing off roses that a flower company sent her. In the photo, Schulman laying on the floor with the flowers splayed out all around her, and obviously, she looks amazing. Her crop top is cute, her highlight is incredible, and it practically looks like she's using the photo to announce that she has been chosen as a future Bachelorette already.
Considering the fact that photoshoots for the show often involve a lot of roses (and sometimes, in a really cheesy way), it's easy to see why this picture would evoke thoughts that Schulman might be good in that role. After all, she looks right at home among the roses, so maybe she'd like to hand out a few on national television as part of a larger journey to find true love?
Fans are already taking over Schulman's comments to share how much they want her to be the franchise's next leading lady. In fact, almost every single comment is in reference to the show, and everyone seems to be rooting for her to be the next choice — and tagging their friends to make sure they see the picture.
"If you're open to the notion, Elan et al would be nuts to not cast you," one of her followers said, while another added, "Are you campaigning to be the next Bachelorette? I really don’t see how they can NOT pick you."
And it didn't stop there. One fan even took a deep dive into the possible hidden meaning of the photo, thinking that this might actually be a clue of what's to come. "Is this like a hidden message that she'll be the next bachelorette?!?" she wrote. "There's [sic] 31 roses I think which are the amount of contestants the season starts off with!"
In all likelihood, there's no meaning behind this photo other than "look at these pretty roses I got," but it's not that crazy to think that Schulman could actually be a lead in a future season. Although the Bachelor franchise used to have a longstanding tradition of choosing the next lead from the most season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, lately, with picks like Nick Viall and Arie Luyendyk Jr., they've been breaking that mold.
And after America watched Schulman on The Bachelor and BiP, it's probably safe to say she's a fan favorite, another factor that's in her favor when it comes to her future Bachelorette chances. At first, fans really shipped her with Dean Unglert, but then the messy triangle between them and Danielle Lombard on the beach ruined everything. Now, tons of Bach fans just want to see her find her happy ending, so why not send her back to the mansion with Chris Harrison?
Only time will tell whether Schulman's in the running for the gig — and who knows? She may not even be interested. But Schulman would definitely make a very worthy candidate, and there are already so many fans who agree. At this point, she should just send the link to this Instagram to the producers. Her comments make it seem like she'd get pretty good ratings.
