Who is the Next Bachelor for 2017?
Chase McNary was a contestant on the 2016 season of The Bachelorette with JoJo Fletcher. After an emotional dismissal from JoJo, it seems like things are looking positive for Chase. Typically, the next Bachelor or Bachelorette is announced during the Tell All special with host Chris Harrison. The reason it wasn’t announced during this season’s “Men Tell All” event is because at the time the show aired there were still negotiations between two Bachelorette contestants, Chase McNary and Luke Pell. Both Luke and Chase shared exclusive details with E! News about their interest in being the next Bachelor.
“It’s just a heavy situation” …. “The pros is I know what the end result entails and that’s exactly what I’m looking for and that’s out there” …. “The cons are you don’t know who’s coming, you don’t know if it’s going to work out, you don’t know what’s going to happen between now and them. It’s just a full commitment and a risky decision to make.” … “The discussions are there,” …. “But I don’t know — there’s a lot of weight there.” – Chase McNary
“It’s a possibility,” … “I definitely would not pass on it!” – Luke Pell

Many have already shared their negative opinions about ABC choosing Chase as their next Bachelor. People feel as though he doesn’t have the energy to be the show’s leading man for an entire season. However, others believe that the personality is there but was held back due to the competition-like atmosphere of the show.
Luke Pell Bio
Luke Pell is a 31 year old war veteran from Burnet, Texas. What does he do now? Many wonder because although the show always displays what everyone’s current job or career is, with certain individuals they focus on something that would create a better title or emotional connection with the audience such as “war veteran”. According to LinkedIn, he is an Entrepreneur and doesn’t have a current place of employment. People had mixed emotions when Luke at one point was in the run for the next Bachelor. People liked him for his looks but felt he was too dark and emotional and lacked humor and energy.
