'The Bachelor' season 21 rumors: Is Chase McNary the next star?


After a tumultuous season for both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” a new season for the hit dating show is already in the works. That being said, the guessing game as to who the next chosen man will be, one who will hand out roses every week in the hopes of finding true love, has begun.

As of now, aggregated guesses point to Chase McNary, one of the last three guys that this season’s “Bachelorette,” JoJo Fletcher, had to choose from. Followers of the franchise may be very well acquainted with the 27-year-old medical sales representative from Denver given the time he spent in the reality show. But aside from speculations and the fact that he definitely has a chance of being the show’s brand new suitor given that he was among Fletcher’s castaways, show creator Mike Fleiss may have also hinted on it.

The producer took to his official social media account last week to announce that a subtle hint on the identity of the next “Bachelor” will be found on the premiere episode of “Love at First Kiss.”

“There’s a clue as to who will be our new Bachelor on tonite’s premiere of our new show #LoveAtFirstKiss on TLC!!!” he wrote on his Twitter account.

Unsurprisingly, really dedicated fans had no problem sitting through the show, which is about strangers making out and hoping that the encounter will lead to love. And during their viewing, they spotted a couple doing yoga that may or may not have been reminiscent of Chase and JoJo’s first date on “The Bachelorette.”

Of course, despite Fleiss being game in giving hints, he did not really confirm nor deny current speculations. Aside from Chase, other men in the running include Luke Pell, a 31-year-old Afghanistan war veteran from Burnet, Texas. He was eliminated a week before Chase was in “The Bachelorette.”

No word from ABC as well with regard to who will be headlining the next iteration of “The Bachelor.” But fans can stay tuned as the announcement is expected soon given that the dating series slated to come back on air in January.
