The man who JoJo Fletcher potentially decided to marry hasn't been revealed just yet to fans of The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, but it appears that the race is on to be the new Bachelor from two of her cast-offs.
Several reports have hinted that both Luke Pell and Chase McNary are potentially going to be the Bachelor for season 21-and now, McNary has confirmed that he is talking to ABC about possibly becoming the man that 25 women will vie for the attention of.
McNary, who was eliminated after the fantasy-suite dates on the July 25th episode, has confirmed in interviews since that he is in consideration for the new gig and new chance at love, though he can't confirm if he is the one who will be picked.
"The discussions are there," the medical sales rep, 27, told Entertainment Tonight.
However, he did admit that he's not sure how much he wants the pressure of being the one who has to make the calls and break hearts.
"But I don't know-there's a lot of weight there," he admitted. "There [are] a lot of expectations, and I'm not scared of it...but I definitely want to make the smart decision and the right decision before I totally accept that position.
He also admitted that he may have a difficult time truly opening up to 25 women, after fans saw him take a while to really do so with JoJo over this recent season.
Pell has also confirmed he is in consideration, and admitted that unlike McNary, he has no qualms about doing the show if he is the one selected.
"It's a possibility. I would not pass on it!" He said.
If either man gets to call himself the Season 21 star, he would have some big shoes to fill following the show's less than stellar track record at finding lasting relationships. Of the 20 Bachelors before, only Sean Lowe has married his original pick in Catherine Giudici. Jason Mesnick dumped pick Melissa Rycroft on the After the Rose Special in favor of runner-up Molly Melaney, and the most recent star, Ben Higgins, is still engaged to Lauren Bushnell, though the couple hasn't set a date for their wedding.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
