There have been nonstop rumors about who the new lead for The Bachelor will be. Reality Steve was convinced it was Greg Grippo. Remember, Greg made some Bachelor Nation enemies during his last few weeks on The Bachelorette with Katie Thurston. Then, other rumors began circulating that nobody from Katie’s season would be chosen as the lead. In fact, producers were choosing to go with a man that nobody has become familiar with just yet. Two names were tossed around. However, it’s looking like those two are not the new Bachelor. Video has now surfaced that appears to be one man from Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette. Who is he? Keep reading to find out more.
Who is the speculated new lead for The Bachelor 2022?
Reality Steve shared a tweet about E! News reportedly figuring out who the new lead for The Bachelor could potentially be. A trusted source has reportedly shared photos with E! that indicate promos for The Bachelor are already being filmed. According to the report, camera crews are seen following an attractive man in front of a house. The location is set in Missouri.
So, who is it? The source says the initials of the new lead are C.E. Digging around a little, they were able to discover this could be Clayton Echard, a 28-year-old orthopedic sales representative. Plus, he just so happens to call Eureka, Missouri home.
He has quite an interesting resume if Clayton is indeed the next Bachelor. According to the report, Clayton was a former freestyle rapper and collegiate football player. Then he landed his gig in orthopedic sales.
The report also shared that anticipation is building since ABC confirmed The Bachelor has been renewed for Season 26.
So far, Steve seems to agree with the news. His tweet said, “We’ve seen them in the past shoot intro videos for people who didn’t end up getting the lead role, but based on last weeks news, and now these pics, looks like Clayton Echard is going to be the next Bachelor.”
Major Announcement!!! When choosing #TheBachelor, the most important quality we look for is sincerity. This time, we hit the jackpot!!! Stay tuned…
