actor Charlie O’Connell is Bachelor 7.
A C-list actor will be the star of The Bachelor 7, according to E! Online’s Wanda/Kristin/whoever. How is this different than any other season? Kristin reports that it’s someone with a recognizable name: Charlie O’Connell. However, although they look alike, he’s not his more famous brother Jerry, who appeared in “Stand by Me” and “Kangaroo Jack.” Charlie, who’s 29, had a part in “Dude, Where’s My Car?” and other films. Kristin says Charlie was recently being followed by cameras and admitted his new role flat-out, saying, “I’m the next Bachelor.” Wanda notes that “producers had been looking—for months—for either a doctor or a ‘celebrity or someone with a celebrity angle’ under 30 to be the next big B and landed on Charlie. ABC believes him to have just the right charisma to bring the show back to its former Trista-like ratings of yesterseason.” Hopefully, they’re not looking for someone who’s genuinely searching for love: K-dog quotes a friend of Charlie’s who says, “He’s just come out of a relationship, and I’m pretty sure he’s just doing this for the fun—and the press.”
