Are ‘The Bachelorette’ Fans Surprisingly Rallying Behind John Paul Jones to Become the Next Bachelor?

John Paul Jones is one of the more ridiculous suitors trying to win Hannah Brown’s heart on The Bachelorette. That’s because he just had his name listed as his job in the first episode and he insists on people saying his full name.

Fans were skeptical about his chances when the cast list was released. Now it looks like they are singing a different tune. Are they rallying behind him to become the next bachelor? Here is what they’re saying online.

The financial analyst got noticed by his profile before the season started. It noted, “When referring to John Paul Jones, always use his full name: John Paul Jones.”

It then added, “John Paul Jones’s favorite drink is Champagne. John Paul Jones rarely uses words that are less than three syllables long.” That doesn’t exactly read like a serious contestant. However, things did start turning around for him.

That’s not because he had some kind of genuine connection with Brown. But it’s because he has had some pretty funny moments from eating chicken nuggets while the other men argue to unnecessarily saying his full name.

Chris Harrison previously said he is a mood

The host went through the cast before the season premiered. When Chris Harrison landed on John Paul Jones he had an interesting comparison.

Then there’s Spicoli,” he said referring to Sean Penn’s character in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. “JPJ isn’t as much a contestant as much as he is a mood. He’s a way of life… he might be my new spirit animal.”

The promotion around John Paul Jones looked like it was backfiring for the contestant. That’s because there was a fan theory that producers encouraged Brown to keep him around for the cameras.

John Paul Jones might have gotten through the worst part of the criticisms because fans are now showing their support for him on social media. They would not only like to see him Bachelor in Paradise, but some are even interested in seeing him on The Bachelor.

Fans are listing their reasons he should become the next bachelor

We still have a long road before the next bachelor is named. Brown is still trying to find love on her season, then there will be the new season of Bachelor in Paradise.

Fans are still giving their suggestions of who should take on the starring role. The star typically makes it far on The Bachelorette, and is a fan favorite. More and more fans are tweeting that John Paul Jones should be considered for the job.

Some noted that his Prince Charming looks make him an option. They also wouldn’t be against seeing him eat even more food during more drama.

There is still a lot of time left in the season so fans could change their minds again. For now it looks like some of them would love to see a full season of John Paul Jones looking for love and eating more nuggets.
