Here's a rumor everyone could've seen coming after Monday night.
After Sean Lowe's surprising elimination from The Bachelorette, the insurance agent and former Texas A&M football player, 28, is already in discussions to be the next Bachelor, according to Hollywood Life and other sources.
“Sean was approached by ABC to be The Bachelor,” says an insider.
For good reason. As a handsome, smart and family-oriented individual, he would have little trouble attracting viewers - or prospective Bachelorettes.
But does he even want the role? “He’s interested, but not sure. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see him on The Bachelor next season,” says a source.
He'll have some competition if he does want it. Roberto Martinez has also been mentioned as a candidate, and this summer's runner-up will be too.
After Emily Maynard picks Arie Luyendyk or Jef Holm - see The Bachelorette spoilers if you want to know who - another strong candidate will emerge.
