I was thinking that it was a done deal that someone had already been offered the part as the next bachelor, or has that been shot down? Out of this bunch, I would say that Arie would be the one that tptb would rather see be the next Bachelor if that person has not already accepted and signed on the dotted line.
I actually hope that the producers aren't REALLY considering Sean for the part, because they would chew him up by casting a bunch of women that were only there for the drama. So, I would hope that if anyone from this season is offered TB, that it would be Arie over Sean. I believe that Arie would be able to handle the role, and he is actually the only guy from this season that I can say that about.
