Ivan Hall considers returning to The Bachelor franchise

Ivan Hall is the breakout star from season 16 of The Bachelorette, which saw him being sent home by Tayshia Adams in the top three.

Ivan Hall appeared in the sixteenth season of ABC’s The Bachelorette, which saw leading lady, Tayshia Adams, on her journey to finding love. Viewers considered Ivan as the frontrunner from the onset, and were convinced that Tayshia would choose him upon the final rose ceremony. Unfortunately, a disagreement between Tayshia and Ivan over their stance on religion drove a wedge between then, causing for the bachelorette to send him home before the finale.

Ivan’s opinions and demeanour when expressing himself received rave reviews from the viewers of the show, who now consider him the breakout star of the entire season. Upon leaving the reality competition, fans began inundating him with requests on social media for him to be the next Bachelor. Others questioned if he would consider partaking in the spin-off show, Bachelor In Paradise.

In an interview with The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe on the Off The Vine podcast in December 2020, Ivan opened up about the possibility of accepting any roles on upcoming shows from the franchise, as he is still hopeful about finding love. He stated, “I’m definitely going to date in my real-life first, and I’ll see where I am by that time. If I’m single, sure, I’ll do it. I think it’ll be a lot of fun just to hang out, and I’ll probably be way more comfortable my second go around the cameras. But I’m not waiting for it at all, by any means. I’m going to see what happens in my personal life first.”

The Bachelor In Paradise cast list is usually confirmed after The Bachelorette and The Bachelor seasons are completed, in order for the producers to gauge who received the most attention from the public in the recent seasons.
