next Bachelor won’t be older; is Tina Fabulous the next Bachelorette?
Bachelor 3 contender Tina Panas, best known as Tina Fabulous, is presently ” traveling the country as a casting assistant to Johnnie Raines, casting producer of” The Bachelor, The Star Tribune’s C.J. reports. Does this mean she’s looking for potential suitors to star in a possible The Bachelorette 3? Raines doesn’t say yes, but he doesn’t say no: “Tina is not at the moment planned to be a new ‘Bachelorette.’ We are finishing up the current ‘Bachelorette’ with Jen Schefft and then [after Byron Velvick's shows are wrapped] we move on to ‘Bachelor 7′. I don’t know for a fact there is going to be another ‘Bachelorette'; we don’t know until one or two weeks before we begin pre-production that we’re doing a show.” He also says that for The Bachelor 7, there won’t be any more of this old fogie crap. Instead, they’ll go back to having “more traditional Bachelors; he’s not going to be 40.”
