LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who is the next Bachelor 2013? Sean Lowe will be the new Bachelor 2013, if online spoilers are correct. Sean Lowe has reportedly won the Bachelor 2013 role over an unnamed newcomer, claim spoilers. Roberto Martinez was set to reportedly become the new Bachelor 2012-2013 but allegedly turned down the offer. Arie Luyendyk, Jr. was allegedly not offered the role, but says he isn’t interested. And Ryan Lochte tells news that he wants to pursue fashion goals, not reality TV. That purportedly only leaves Sean as the possible next Bachelor. Or does it? As fans await tonight’s telecast to learn who won Bachelor Pad 3 2012, there is some doubt about who won the role to be the net Bachelor.
First, certain men have definitely been eliminated from the short list. Ryan Lochte is definitely not doing the show. There was also no confirmation he was ever offered the show. Ryan according to sources “will focus on his training, his love life and his new fashion line.”
One man who many thought could be the next Bachelor was Arie. RealitySteve, however, reports that Arie was purportedly never offered the role by producers. But Arie recently told news “Just to clarify I will not be the next Bachelor. I am however pursuing opportunities in @Indycar & RolexSeries.” He also told news “Ultimately I realized my heart is tied to the race track and my career is my main priority. I’m looking forward to getting back on the track.”
On September 3, Executive producer Mike Fleiss told news that a decision had still not been met about who is the next Bachelor. “We start shooting later this month. A decision must be made this week. Who will be Bachelor 2013?”, he told news at the time.
Ryan Seacrest has told news that Roberto Martinez is definitely not going to be the Bachelor. “First we know it will definitely not be Roberto from Ali Fedotowsky’s season of The Bachelorette, as it’s been rumored before”.
So is Sean the likely Bachelor? Seacrest is not so sure. He contended in his report, before Arie’s news statement, that the race was down to three men: Sean, Arie, and a newcomer. Who is the newcomer? “They may go back to how they used to choose, it could be an unknown third guy. Either way the president of ABC himself will be involved in the decision.”
Roberto was reportedly offered the $500,000 role but purportedly turned it down. He reportedly is still dating 26 year old model Kara Ramos. For live coverage of Bachelor Pad tonight, click HERE.
