Jesse Palmer

ABC has officially announced that Jesse Palmer will be the new host of the The Bachelor, season 26.


There's a new host for hit ABC's dating show The Bachelor and his name is Jesse Palmer. He is quite familiar with the role and the dynamics of the show, having participated himself as The Bachelor Season 5 in 2004. Palmer will substitute Chris Harrison in this brand new 26th season.

Palmer has come a long way. He's a television broadcaster and a former NFL quarterback player. He has collaborated on ABC News, Good Morning America and as sports commentator on ESPN.

Even though this is the first time that he'll host The Bachelor, Palmer is pretty accustomed to the role of host. He previously hosted the reality TV show The Proposal (2018) and ABC's Disney Park's holiday specials. Furthermore, Palmer is now hosting ABC's summer series The Ultimate Surfer.

In a tweet, The Bachelor page welcomed back Palmer:

"Welcome back @JessePalmerTV! Jesse Palmer will be hosting the upcoming season of #TheBachelor!"

And Palmer himself appeared incredibly grateful for the opportunity of coming back where it all started. In an Instagram post, he can be spotted at The Bachelor's Mansion, wearing an elegant suit. Palmer captioned the post with the following:

"Bachelor Nation - I couldn't be more thrilled to be home with my @bachelorabc family! Word on the street is it's pretty AMAZING around here!"

Recently, ABC has confirmed that the new Bachelor's name is Clayton Echard. Although a premiere date for the new season has yet to be announced, it is expected to begin in 2022. Indeed, season 18 of The Bachelorette wrapped up in September 2021 and The Bachelor went into production right afterwards.

As the wait for the new season of The Bachelor grows, you can stream previous seasons on Hulu.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
