Luke Pell Was Supposed To Be The Next Bachelor, And How Dare They Take That Away From Him?

Luke Pell Was Supposed To Be The Next Bachelor, And How Dare They Take That Away From Him?

We all thought it was going to happen. Nay, we believed it was going to happen.

But then, it didn’t. It was snatched away from us. It was taken from our grips like the remote control out of a boyfriend’s hand when the clock strikes 8 o’clock on a Monday night. Just when we thought America’s heartthrob, Luke Pell from last season of The Bachelorette, was going to be our next Bachelor, Nick Viall came in and stole his thunder. ABC went down a dirty road of looking for drama over dreams, lying over love.

Yes, ABC chose Nick Viall to be our next Bachelor over Luke. Over a veteran in our armed forces, they chose a veteran of The Bachelorette seasons 10 and 11 as well as Bachelor In Paradise season 3. And to ABC, all I have to ask is this – how dare you? Especially after the story Luke told US Magazine about how he was actually supposed to be the next Bachelor, but Nick JoJo’d him.

We were all satisfied, had agreed to the contracts and everything was moving forward.I was checked in to my flight to come to L.A. I got a call from producers Sunday night at about 10 pm. They said ABC had decided to quote-unquote go in a different direction. I was supposed to fly out Monday morning at 9 am. I had my bags packed and everything. Most dramatic Monday ever!

I’m not saying Chris Harrison doesn’t support the troops, but I’m also not saying that there’s a reason Luke is sitting at home on his ranch rather than sorting through twenty-or-so women vying for his heart. You people disgust me.

Because the entire world isn’t a bunch of scumbags like this entire situation would lead you to believe, there’s a petition on vying for Luke to replace Nick and simply have Nick exist as supplemental entertainment. But do we really want someone taking Luke’s spotlight, or does he deserve his own? I think we all know the answer to that.

Stand up. Be heard. Shout from the rooftops. Storm the streets. Turn your backs to the television when you hear the The Bachelor‘s theme music come on. Just whatever you do, do not let ABC win this. Fight for what we deserve, and make sure Luke gets his shot at being The Bachelor.
