ABC recently announced that in addition to the new season of The Bachelor that will air this spring, The Bachelorette will return this summer after a three-year absence. Why there haven’t been as many Bachelorettes as Bachelors isn’t quite known, but it would appear that in the face of an on-going writers’ strike and the fall out from Brad Womack’s non-choice last season, it’s time for them to reconsider putting a woman in the driver’s seat.

DeAnna Pappas from the last season of The Bachelor was first on many people’s list as a prime candidate for a Bachelorette. While nothing has been announced, she’s certainly stoking the rumors with some recent comments about a hypothetical turn as The Bachelorette.

If she were to become The Bachelorette, DeAnna said, “I would approach the experience with a very open mind. I would also do my best to try to be very understanding considering I would know exactly what the guys are going through! I will approach it with the hope of finding one amazing man that hopefully I can live happily ever after with in the end…”

She also mused on what kind of dates she would like to plan if she were The Bachelorette.

“Brad told us girls that he was able to help the producers with some of the ideas for the dates…like the circus date, the pool date, etc. Those types of dates were my favorite because I am so a low key, easy to please person. I’m not a very “girly” girl…so diamonds and fancy dresses don’t impress me! Flowers either for that matter…they just die! I guess if I could choose the dates, I would love to go to a baseball game and drink beer! A football game would even please me. Maybe something active like white water rafting or on a boat at the lake. That’s real life for me…”

Whether or not DeAnna becomes The Bachelorette remains to be seen, but it would appear she has definitely put a bit of thought and consideration into the possibility.
