The next season of, The Bachelorette, hasn’t even aired yet, but it seems we may already know who ABC has chosen as the next lead on, The Bachelor. 

Michelle Young’s new season is being promoted now, and will premiere Tuesday, October 19th. This will be the second season of The Bachelorette in a row, as Katie Thurston just wrapped up her season earlier this summer. With every new cast of men, everyone is always on the lookout for one thing; who will be the next bachelor.

While there was a lot of debate about who would be best on Katie Thurston’s season, it seems none of those men have been chosen. In fact, a man who is going to be on Michelle Young’s upcoming season has not only already been selected, but he’s already started filming! Bachelor producers are wasting absolutely no time.

ABC has not officially announced their next lead, but Reality Steve, who true Bachelor fans know to always have the inside tea, is saying that the new lead for, The Bachelor, will be Clayton Echard.


Here’s what we know about Clayton; he’s 28, works as a orthopedic sales rep, and is from Eureka, Missouri.



Obviously this puts a bit of a damper on the upcoming season of, The Bachelorette, as we know that Clayton obviously won’t win Michelle’s heart, but I’m excited to see him on the upcoming season and see if he is indeed ‘Bachelor’ material. Judging from his Instagram, I’d say yes!
