Bachelor nation, rejoice!
A familiar face is stepping into the shoes of The Bachelor. That's right, the new Bachelor for season 26 will be Clayton Echard. Fans of the reality series will recognize Clayton from his appearance on the most recent season of The Bachelorette. His time with Michelle sadly came to a close, but for Clayton, as one door closes another opens.
Fans fell in love with Clayton's goofy personality and his love for dogs. Clayton will be met with 33 potential suitors who hope to put a ring on it by the end of the journey. Although his journey on The Bachelorette ended earlier than expected, the fan favorite contestant will get a second chance at love as he tries on the role of The Bachelor for himself.
As The Bachelor enters its 20th year on air, the drama is hotter than ever before. Be sure to catch the season premiere of The Bachelor Monday January 3rd at 8:00pm EST on ABC.
