If you believe what you read on the internet, then it looks like there is a pretty good chance that our own Matt Nordgren will appear in an upcoming season of The Bachelor. Aw, Matty, don't you know that after 15 seasons of men looking for love on this lame show that they never find it?! But they do get to make out with a lot of pretty girls in hot tubs, and we all know that's right up your alley.
My pals at Wetpaint hinted that this might be coming down the pike in late August, but it was pure speculation then. Ben Flajnik, a 28 year old winemaker has already been named as the next Bachelor and will appear in the next season of The Bachelor airing in January 2012, which means that the earliest Nordgren could appear is January 2013. A lot can happen between now and then. He could realize that Courtney is truly his soul mate, they could be married and preggers with baby Nordgren by then. Stranger things have happened. I'm just sayin'.
I reached out to Matt for comment on this rumor and he responded with, "LOL. Speculation. There's nothing I can report right now, sweetie." RIGHT NOW being the operative words in this quote. So, he's not flat out denying it, which tells me there's something to the rumor.
Here is how fans are reacting on Twitter:
