Producers found new Bachelor on the street

The newly revealed eighth Bachelor, Travis Stork, is a series-long dream for producers of the show. Executive producer Mike Fleiss says, “For 10 [cycles], we looked for a doctor. But we never found him.”

But as he tells the New York Daily News, they finally found him, and not because he auditioned or anyone in his life suggested him for the show. “One of my casting people saw him walking down the street and she said, ‘Oh, my God! That is the best-looking guy I have ever seen in my entire life.’ And she literally chased him down the street,” he says. Apparently, that tactic worked.

And if his Vanderbilt residency ID photo doesn’t quite suggest “the best looking-guy [you] have ever seen,” ABC has released recent photos that show Travis with his hair cut and his eyes open.

Tragically, their photo of host Chris Harrison shows that he’s still the same tool that we’ve known for the past seven seasons.
