Bachelor creator says Kate Gosselin is perfect for...

Posted on

As soon as news of TLC cancelling Kate Gosselin’s reality show hit, the half-joking tweets and comments began: Gosselin should do The Bachelorette next.

Gosselin herself seemed to hint that dating is the next step for the reality star, tweeting: “I can’t wait2have the chance2challenge myself again w future endeavors!… And maybe even some dating??!!”

So we asked Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss if he would ever consider Gosselin for his show. Here’s what he said:

“Kate Gosselin? Sounds like a perfect fit for Bachelor Pad,” he wrote. “Or, H8R…”

So there you go. Bachelor franchise spin-off Bachelor Pad, where former Bachelor Pad contestants go on dates and compete in challenges, might be an option — though that would depart from the show’s usual format, since she’s never been on a Bachelor show. Or Fleiss’ upcoming CW reality show debuting Sept. 14 about anti-fans confronting celebrities they dislike.

Either way, guess the producer couldn’t see hot single men on Bachelorette lining up to fight for a woman with eight kids and an annoying ex-husband, go figure!
