Jesse Palmer, former Bachelor, has been named as the new host of The Bachelor.

Jesse is taking over for the first season of The Bachelor since longtime host Chris Harrison stepped down in February after a highly publicized scandal.

You may remember Jesse as the 5th Bachelor in the shows franchise. He is a former NFL quarterback who became the Bachelor in 2004, he ended his season in a relationship with Jessica, but a month later they called it quits. He is now engaged to model Emely Fardo, who he has been dating since 2017.

You may ask yourself, why Jesse?

Well, this isn’t his first time hosting for ABC. He previously hosted the network’s dating series The Proposal in 2018, as well as The Ultimate Surfer this summer.

Although, he may be remembered best as being the guy who gave the wrong girl a rose on his season…

The Bachelor‘s actual Bachelor for season 26 hasn’t been announced yet, but over weekend, The Bachelor posted 33 photos to Facebook of women who may appear on the show when it premieres in 2022.

While fans will have to wait for the 26th season of The Bachelor, viewers will soon get to tune into the 18th season of The Bachelorette, which is set to premiere on 10/19 on ABC with Michelle Young.
