From NFL QB to being the Bachelor, Jesse Palmer has had quite the career. Now it’s all coming back full circle. Former Bachelor Jesse Palmer is going to step in to do the job for season 26 of The Bachelor, premiering in 2022. Palmer was the actual Bachelor back in 2004.
“For more than 20 years, The Bachelor has brought the world dozens of unforgettable love stories, including at one time, my own,” Palmer says in a statement. “Falling in love is one of life’s greatest gifts, and I am humbled by the opportunity to return to the show as host this season to offer the newest Bachelor advice gained from firsthand experience and I am grateful to play a small part in his journey.”

This sucks!! He only went on The Bachelor so ABC would put him on college football!! Want proof… he didn’t get married until 14 years after he was The Bachelor! I wonder how much I can skip of him without missing the show!

Palmer also posted about the new gig:
Palmer is currently the host of ABC’s The Ultimate Surfer and he hosted the network’s canceled reality show The Proposal, a series created by the Bachelor showrunner Mike Fleiss.
Palmer played for the NFL in the New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, and Montreal Alouettes in the 2000s.
Best of luck trying to replace a legend in Chris Harrison, no easy task.
