Chris Lambton has rejected Bachelor offer, report says

Chris Lambton seems like the obvious choice to be the next star of The Bachelor after being dumped on The Bachelorette, but he’s said no to offers from producers.

That’s according to an E! News report, which said Chris “has been offered the role as ABC’s next Bachelor, but has told producers” no, “saying he wants to step away from the spotlight and return to his ‘normal life.’”

An anonymous source said, “All of our best Bachelors have been hesitant at first,” while another source told E!, “The producers really want Chris to be the guy. They’re hoping they can convince him…This definitely isn’t dead yet.”
