I fear for Kip should he become TB or anyone else for that matter.. TPTB are addicted to making the post-show PR buzz greater than the show to extend its lifespan. So even if Kip found love or like - TPTB would find some way to ruin it at the end or post-show.

On another popular network series, the men of "The Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" proved they can generate just as many headlines as the ABC series' women have done previously.

"The Bachelorette" ended with more scandal, from allegations that winner Ed was cheating on Jillian with two other women, to bachelor Wes claiming on-camera that he'd had a secret girlfriend all along. He later said producers fabricated his on-screen persona, which producers deny, and probably love, since this kind of drama has brought the aging franchise new life.
