Bachelor finalists revealed, maybe

The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss revealed, probably, five finalists for the title spot on the show’s 17th season: recent Bachelorette cast members Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Sean Lowe, and Ryan Bowers; Roberto Martinez, who has been long-rumored to be cast; and Tim Tebow.

Tebow’s inclusion is suspect, and Fleiss also listed “the singer from Free Credit Report band,” which is either a joke or brilliant or an illustration that he’s just playing around. Whether all of this is bullshit or not, he insists no one has been chosen yet, and producers are listening to fans.

Fleiss added that there are “a couple guys you’ve never heard of…” That’s perhaps the biggest news for a show that continues to draw from its own pool of talent (cough, cough) to find its stars.
