Fans were in for quite a shock when it was announced that Nick Viall would become the next Bachelor.
After all, Luke Pell was a front-runner!
Pell also seemed a little bummed but took the news like a champ writing, “Thx for all the love sometimes we are faced w/unexpected changes. I’m happy to be back in Nash excited for the future,” alongside a photo that read “Trust God’s timing, He has a plan for everything.”
Pell appeared on season 12 of The Bachelorette and tried to win over JoJo’s heart. She ended up picking Jordan Rodgers.
When the show was looking for their next leading men, producers were convinced it would be Pell.
“It’s looking like Luke right now as the next Bachelor, but there are a couple others on the back burner in case he doesn’t work out” a source said.
Viall wasn’t even among the contenders – Robby Hayes, Chase McNary and Wells Adams were all being considered.
Are you happy with the shows choice or do you wish it was Pell?
