Amy Schumer made quite an impression when she guest starred on The Bachelorette, which led to fans campaigning for her to be next season’s love searcher. Fortunately, producers of the ABC reality dating series immediately took notice.

On Monday’s Bachelorette episode, Schumer helped coach Kaitlyn Bristowe’s suitors for their stand-up comedy showdown and even slammed a contestant named JJ.
“JJ’s a sweetheart. He’s just missing, like, charisma and humility and a sense of humor,” Schumer said in her confessional.
Viewers of The Bachelorette praised Schumer for hilarious commentaries and started being wooed by Bachelor Nation to be the next Bachelorette.
All I want is for @amyschumer to be the next bachelorette. And for me to get the final rose. I really don’t think that’s asking too much. ðŸŒ¹

So far there has been no official word from ABC but that doesn’t mean one can’t hope.
