5 Guys We'd Rather See Star on 'The Bachelor'

September 7, 2017

It was announced on Good Morning America September 7 that the next star of The Bachelor franchise is Arie Luyendyk Jr. It came as to a surprise for most considering we haven't heard anything about the alum since 2012. He was the runner-up on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette

The 35-year-old will hand out the roses this time around, however, Bachelor Nation is shook over the news. We've listed five former contestants throughout the years that we think would have been a better choice for season 22 of The Bachelor.

1. Eric Bigger (Season 13- The Bachelorette)

2. Ben Zorn (Season 11- The Bachelorette / Season 4- Bachelor In Paradise)

Paradise is back...and so am I, -- I need to sit down for this -- #dontcallitacomeback

Can never go wrong with some nuzzling. Going on a date tonight with a girl that I met on @hinge and I needed some romantic inspiration

5. Chase Brody McNary (Season 12- The Bachelorette)
