Ryan Park: The Next Bachelor?

by at . Comments

Ashley Hebert rejected Ryan Park not once, but twice this season. Still, she says The Bachelorette castoff is one of her top choices to be The Bachelor.

Would he consider a turn in the spotlight as the next Bachelor? "Maybe!" he said on a conference call with reporters, saying it would be an honor.

While he was clearly stoked about the idea - almost as much as he is about tankless water heaters - he did say it's no easy task to be in command.

"Being the Bachelorette is hard!" Park said. "It's unfortunate [Ashley] is being attacked for her insecurities, and how [Bentley Williams] preyed on that."

As for getting dumped twice, Ryan says he has no hard feelings.

"When I was let go, I didn't really understand, [but] now everything becomes clearer watching her chemistry with the other guys," the 31-year-old said.

Having been dispatched before the hometown dates, Ryan showed up in Fiji out of the blue in this week's episode. Ashley sent him home again.

"Timing has a place in every relationship. I do think Ashley and Icould  work; Maybe a date earlier on could have sparked something," he said.

"Something could have been different if it was under different circumstances - or if [finalists] Ben Flajnik and JP Rosenbaum weren't around!"

All in all, Park deems his one-time love "a great Bachelorette," saying she was often misunderstood and looked at unfairly by fans and viewers.

Park says he's no longer "in love with Ashley," but will always feel a close connection to The Bachelorette star. That's nice at least.

What do you think? Can you see Ryan Park as The Bachelor?

Please get someone new at this time. I am tired of "loosers". I'm sure that I'm not the only one with the same opinion.

Love Ryan but don't think he should be next Bachelor -- he can find love now that he is known. Get someone completely new. It wouldn't be fair to him to have to hook up with 25 crazy women who aren't always there for love even though they say they are. Most folks that love the show want new people, new blood so we are not so judgemental of the folks we have seen previously. I love Ryan's concern for the environment--not sure why people are against folks that are smart. No to Ben also....new people, please.

YES!! Everyone I talk to about this LOVES Ryan!! He is smart, successful, handsome, and he is genuinely a nice guy who has a big heart! I think it's a shame the other guys picked on him for being happy?! Good grief, I wish more people were like Ryan! I think there will be girls lining up to date him with or without him being then next Bachelor. Go Ryan P!

Ryan??? Really??? I had a hard time tolerating his smothering and nagging behavior. Ben F would be an excellent choice. As for Bently, He was just too full of himself! Ben F deserves another shot. He was truly genuine. Karen

Noooo, he is too needy. They need to find someone new. Stop using castoffs.

NO!!!!! He may be a nice guy and yeah, I admit he's goodlooking. But, when he opens his mouth I want to shoot myself. He's SOOOO ANNOYING and I absolutely can't stand him. An entire season of him....ughhh I shudder just thinking about it! Ben or Ames for sure. Maybe Constantine...but I'm really thinking Ben would be best. GO BEN F!!!

I think it should be BEN, SINCE HE IS THE WON AT THE END WHO GOT HURT THE MOST. WHOEVER IS LEFT AT THE FINAL END, SHOULD BE THE NEXT BACHLORETTE, OR THE NEXT BACHLOR. BEN BEN BEN IS MY CHOICE.

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
