‘The Bachelor’ 2020: When Will The Next Star Be Announced & Who Is It?

The Bachelor 2020


The Bachelor premieres at the beginning of January each year, which means fans will have to wait until after the New Year for The Bachelor 2020 premiere. But, when will the next star be announced? Sometimes, the star is announced during the After the Final Rose special on The Bachelorette, but this was not the case this time. Otherwise, the star is usually announced at a later date on a live episode of Good Morning America. For example, according to TIME, Chris Soules was announced as The Bachelor for 2015 in August 2014, which was after The Bachelorette had wrapped.

“The Bachelor” 2020 Possibilities

As for who could be the next new star, there are a few front-runners from season 15 of The Bachelorette – Peter Weber, Tyler Cameron and Mike Johnson. But, with Cameron accepting a date invite from Brown on the Bachelorette After the Final Rose segment, we’re not sure if Cameron would be available for the gig … even though Reality Steve reported that Cameron’s mother has been telling people he’s the next Bachelor star.

On July 16, 2019, Reality Steve stated, “Tyler’s mom was telling everyone he’s gonna be the next Bachelor. Now, I didn’t hear his mom say this. Nor do I even know if she actually did. I was just TOLD (ten different times from people) she was heard saying this. So take that for what it’s worth. Look, it’s not like it would be a major surprise if Tyler became the Bachelor. Hell, I think a lot of female viewers of this show would probably collectively orgasm if he did. But do I think he’s already been chosen and his mom spoiled it? Probably not. This is gonna be between Tyler, Peter, and Mike for the most part.”

When it comes to Mike Johnson, Marie Claire has reported that he is a cast member on the new season of Bachelor in Paradise, which usually means that he will not be the next Bachelor star. An exception to this rule was Nick Viall, whose season of BIP was airing when his Bachelor gig was announced.

On part 1 of the finale of The Bachelorette 2019, audience members, Brown and host Chris Harrison fawned over cast-off Peter Weber, who was eliminated from the final 3. So, he has a very good chance at becoming the next Bachelor star.

When asked if he would be game for being the new Bachelor, Weber told People that he “wouldn’t say ‘no'” to the opportunity if he was approached.

Casting for ‘The Bachelor’

In an interview with E! News, producer Alycia Rossiter talked about what the show looks for when casting its stars. Rossiter said, “We really want to find someone who honestly wants to get married and start their adult life in a partnership. There’s so many factors. The audience has to love them, but if you love them and I think they’re just in it for a rollercoaster ride that’s no good for us.”

For those rooting for Weber to be on The Bachelor, former Bachelorette contestant Jared Haibon has weighed in and told Entertainment Tonight that he doesn’t think Weber will land the gig.
