With Colton Underwood confirmed as the Bachelor and ready to capture the hearts of the Bachelor Nation, it's time again to talk about this:
Which Bachelor is the hottest Bachelor of all time!?
After all, even if ABC does scour the Earth for eligible gentlemen who are the total package ... not all hunks are created equal.
Colton will be the leading man on The Bachelor's 23nd season on ABC, making him the show's 22nd Bachelor of all time.
(Brad Womack famously got two cracks at the main event ... and yet didn't get a happily ever, or even close, after either).
Obviously, not everyone in the Bachelor Nation is totally agreed on who's hot and who's not, since aesthetics are subjective.
But honestly, isn't that what makes a debate fun?
Take a look at the ghosts of Bachelors past and see for yourself who's the hottest of the hot and where you think Colton should rank.
(At least before The Bachelor spoilers reveal some more shady stuff about him, which you know is a very real possibility.)
If there were a Bachelor, and season of The Bachelor, that left less than a memorable impression, it might have to be Lorenzo Borghese. He is eminently forgettable. But he's not exactly hard to look upon.
Arie Luyendyk Jr.
The 2018 Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr., was runner-up on The Bachelorette ... in 2012. Was no one else interested in the gig? Arie made a lot of headlines when he got engaged to Becca Kufrin and dispatched her after the fact, wooing runner-up Lauren Burnham instead; Arie and Lauren are still together six months later, while Becca just got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. Win-win for everyone?
Is Andrew Firestone a contender for Hottest Bachelor Ever? Maybe. Do you remember that he was actually on The Bachelor? Less-convincing maybe.
Bachelor Bob Guiney starred in Season 4 of the ABC hit. No, seriously, he did.
Not to be confused with his brother Jerry O'Connell, who's starred on things like Sliders, Scream 2, and Crossing Jordan, Charlie O'Connell once starred on the ABC show.
The bass-fishing Byron Velvick had the outdoorsy thing going for him in Season 7, that's for sure. He got engaged to Mary Delgado, with whom he had a tumultuous relationship.
