Why Ashley Iaconetti Thinks Tayshia Adams Or Andi Dorfman Should Be The Bachelorette

Bachelor in Paradise star Ashley Iaconetti has some thoughts on who the next bachelorette should be. She also has some thoughts on who the bachelorette shouldn’t be, e.g. Hannah Brown.

“It’s too soon to repeat now,” she told Life & Style of another Brown Bachelorette season.

But, eventually, Iaconetti would like to see the former beauty pageant queen find love on TV again.

“I would love to see Hannah be the Bachelorette again in a couple of years,” she told the publication. “I don’t want people to get Hannah burnout.”

Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon think Andi Dorfman should be the bachelorette

Iaconetti and her husband, Jared Haibon, recently told the publication they’re “down for Andi Dorfman round two.” And they’re also down for Nick Viall to be a contestant on her season.

“We’d want to see Nick on the show as many times as possible,” said Iaconetti.

Haibon admits it probably “would never happen in a million years,” but he’s “absolutely … here for it.”

Iaconetti thinks, especially after Peter Weber’s Bachelor season, fans are hoping for an older lead and older contestants.

“She is going to turn 33 in the spring, and I think it would be nice to see a girl of that age,” she explained. “Andi killed it as Bachelorette the first time, so why not do it twice with her?”

Iaconetti feels Dorfman is “witty, whip-smart, stunning and won’t put up with crap.” The perfect woman for the job.

When Dorfman spoke to Life & Style about appearing in the lead role again she seemed hesitant.

“You either do [it] and it works out for you, or you move on from it,” she said, adding that the experience may be a “one-shot thing.”

Tayshia Adams would be a ‘really good choice’ for ‘The Bachelorette’

Tayshia Adams from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor is another possibility for the lead role. Iaconetti feels she’d be a “really good choice.”

“She is just so likable … She’s just pretty fantastic,” Iaconetti told Life & Style of Adams.

“I don’t think anybody has met Tayshia and been like, ‘Eh, she’s mediocre,’” she added.

Her husband agrees: “Tayshia is a really good pick.”

Adams appeared on the most recent season of Bachelor in Paradise and while she didn’t leave Mexico in a relationship she and John Paul Jones from Brown’s season gave it a shot post-filming. However, they split a few months later.

Host Chris Harrison says the lead role could very possibly go to an alum.

“We are big believers in there is no terrible idea, unless someone’s obviously married or in a relationship,” he told Life & Style. “But, if they’re not taken, and if they’re single, they’re a viable candidate.”
