Tonight on DWTS cameras panned to the audience and showed Bachelor Chris Soules fiancé Whitney Bischoff in the audience but they also revealed another intriguing guest— Bachelorette contestant and winner Josh Murray.
The odd pairing have led many to believe that Josh Murray, 30 will be the next Bachelor for the 2016 season.
In fact there was a lot of talk around Josh from the start of Andi Dorman’s season because of what an ideal Bachelor he would have made if he were to lose. I actually think ABC was a little bummed that Josh did win because he would have been perfect to lead the show.
The strapping 6′-2″, 200 lb 29-year-old ex-professional baseball player and now Financial Service Manager for Capstone Financial in Atlanta, Georgia had a huge fan base during Andi’s season. He is from a very tight-knit, athletic and Jesuit Catholic family, (although his mother is Jewish) and he appears to be very wealthy. So he looks great on paper.
That said, I also think the problems that he and Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, 27 had in their relationship raised some red flags for producers.
Their were reports that Josh was insanely jealous and insecure and had a bad temper. They also claimed that Josh was very controlling. So those are things that ABC needs to consider very seriously. But this interesting appearance on DWTS strongly suggests ABC has already made up their mind.
Josh made some telling statements on Sunday night March 29 at the iHeartRadio Music hinting that he will lead the show.
