One of the fun things about being a fan of The bachelor and The Bachelorette not only guesses the results of the show, but also finds out who will be returning for a later season. Bachelors in paradise is the cure for fans who want to give their loved ones a second chance at love on reality TV.
As BiP season 8 begins, the cast had dropped hints as to who will be competing in season 27 The bachelor. On September 20, 2022, ABC announced Zach Shallcross as the 27th Bachelor, according to TV Guide. But could there be a surprise? Read on to learn more about season 27 of The bachelor and contenders for the future Bachelor leads.
The Bachelorette just had two leading ladies in control and calling the shots. The same could happen with an upcoming season of The bachelor?

Two fan favorites are back BiP (which is the whole point of the show), notes Cosmopolitan. Justin Glaze and Andrew Spencer have returned from the drama of Katie Thurston’s season The Bachelorette. The two could make an interesting pairing for a two-lead season — if they leave paradise alone.
Since these two will be in paradise before the season 27 premiere in January 2023, chances are one of the two will get into a new season of The bachelor is slim but not unknown – Nick Viall was made The bachelor after it continues Bachelors in paradise.
Nate Mitchell made a splash in season 19 of The Bachelorette by earning Gabby’s first single date. And what’s not to like? He’s smart, has a successful career as an electrical engineer in Chicago, is a big Cubs fan and is a single father. And his limp hair is definitely his trademark.
Leads for single parents are hard to come by. Jason Mesnick previously filled the role in Season 13 of Good The bachelor after second place in season 4 of The Bachelorette. Mesnick made a bold decision. He split from winner Melissa Rycroft after realizing he was in love with runner-up Molly Malaney.
However, things turned out for the better as Rycroft married another man and has three children, while Melaney and Mesnick are married and have a daughter of their own.
So far, ABC has settled on Zach Shallcross’s 27th season The bachelor.
future leads for The bachelor could include Tyler Norris or fan-favorite Tyler Cameron, although he seems dead against returning to the franchise. Controversial Greg Grippo could be back, although he’s been spotted on both sides of the Atlantic with a French model, according to Us Weekly.
Only time will tell who might be next, until then fans will have to wait until January 23, 2023 The bachelor Season 27 premiere.
