Friday Morning Man: Willis Reid!
There’s never been a black Bachelor in the 16-year history of ABC’s The Bachelor.
There is some buzz and fan support for dreamy Willis Reid to make long overdue franchise history.
Though he’s now appearing on Bachelor in Paradise, the 29 year old graphic designer from Los Angeles says he’s very open to the idea of being the next Bachelor.
“I feel like if the stars align and I am single after Paradise, I would love to be the next Bachelor,” he told EW during ABC’s portion of the Television Critics Association conference in Beverly Hills. “I feel like I would bring intensity, but genuine intensity. There’d be some tears — some good tears, some bad tears, but I’d also bring a renewed sense of what the world looks like today. I would bring style, I would bring consideration and care and kindness to all the women that would be there. I feel like there isn’t a better candidate than me.”
