Above all else, the next Bachelor should be someone who's fun to watch as good guy. Like I said earlier, we've done the whole Bachelor-as-villain shtick before, and while it was extremely compelling for some fans at the time, it's gonna be really aggravating to see over and over again. The Bachelor should be someone who inspires audiences to want to find love!
I don't feel like these are difficult bars to clear for The Bachelor — in fact, if you ask me, a lot of it sounds like Eric. Keep your options open for Bachelor In Paradise, I guess, but I'm just saying, he's right there and ready to fall in love again. No pressure.
