Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette ended literally .2530972 seconds ago, but believe it or not, we’re being granted intel on who the next Bachelor is going to be already! Of course, our favorite Bachelor Nation tea-spilling extraordinaire, Reality Steve, is to blame for this highly coveted spoiler (seriously, how has he not been sued by ABC yet? oh, wait), so let’s get into it.
Before we proceed, please know that there are major spoilers ahead! Obviously!
According to Reality Steve, Greg Grippo—as in Greg, who tried (and failed at) hiding that he went to a prestigious acting school for two years and got into a massive fight with Katie during his time on the show—is more than likely set to be our next Bachelor. It’s a glorious day for the Greg stans and a sad day for the Andrew Spencer fans.
“What I’ve been hearing the past 5 days or so regarding the next Bachelor are this…been told it’s going to be Greg. Obviously it’s never ‘official’ until ABC announces it (whenever that may be), but at this point I would be very surprised if it’s not him,” he wrote on Twitter.
Steve continued his discussion of Greg and the backlash he’s expecting from fans at the news, but he’s firm that it won’t change the production team’s mind on casting him as their next lead. “He’s a polarizing figure that will have people talking, which is what they want. But by all accounts and everything I’m being told, he’s your next Bachelor so, I guess let’s get the hot take machine fired up. Because here they come in full force,” he added.
Reminder: This Bachelor news is up in the air until ABC confirms it themselves. Until then, I’ll be indulging in every single spoiler from Michelle Young’s upcoming season of The Bachelorette, tyvm.
