Wells Adams Admits He Was a Little Bummed Not to Be the New 'Bachelor' Host

When the next season of The Bachelor premieres, we won’t just welcome a new Bachelor and gaggle of new contestants/future Bachelor in Paradise stars to Bachelor Nation. We’ll also be welcoming the franchise’s new host, Jesse Palmer.

Jesse has strong ties to the franchise (he was the Bachelor back in 2004, on the show’s fifth season), but the news still came as a bit of surprise to at least some Bach fans when ABC made it official in September. There was a contingent of Bachelor Nation who were pulling hard for Wells Adams, who appeared as a contestant on JoJo Fletcher’s season and went on to become the official bartender in Paradise, and were pretty damn disappointed when he wasn’t selected for the gig. FWIW, he admitted to Us Weekly that he was “a little bit” bummed himself.

“But I was never the Bachelor, so I understood the decision,” he explained. “I also know Jesse really well, I’ve worked with him before. So I get him being the host, he was the Bachelor [so it] totally makes sense. You know, I’m happy [for him].”

When Us Weekly gave him an easy out to play it cool about not getting the job and asked if he was a little relieved not to be taking over the high-pressure hosting duties, he doubled down—and low-key manifested a more permanent place hosting Bachelor in Paradise after his “master of ceremonies” stint last season.

“Hell no! I wanted that job, come on. It’s the best job in the world,” he said. “You fly around, you say three words, [give] last rose [and] get outta here. … There’s no host for Paradise yet, so we’ll see.”

Let’s all join Wells in manifesting that Paradise gig, in a show of Bach Nation solidarity (…and for all of the sweet/sexy Sarah Hyland vacay photos it would yield).
