Did Colton Underwood Just Subtly Tell Fans on Instagram Who He Thinks the Next ‘Bachelor’ Is?

Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette is certainly unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. Brown herself proved to be strong, independent, and relatable — and despite her young age, viewers adored watching her journey in finding love. Unfortunately, Brown’s journey didn’t have the happy ending she expected. While she did get engaged to Jed Wyatt, she later learned he had a girlfriend right before coming onto the show, which caused her to rethink their relationship and break off the engagement.

Now, it seems Brown and fan-favorite contestant Tyler Cameron are going to grab a drink and see where things go. And fans are all wondering who the next Bachelor star is going to be. It seems the former leading man, Colton Underwood, may be giving subtle hints regarding who he thinks will be the next man looking for love, too.

While Brown had a number of controversial contestants vying for her love (we’ll never forget Luke Parker, for instance), she also had a few men whom fans absolutely adored. Mike Johnson made it far in the show with Brown but couldn’t quite capture her heart. And Peter Weber, who was eliminated right before the finale, notably hooked up with Brown four times in a windmill — yet he also wasn’t the right man for The Bachelorette star. While Brown didn’t fall in love with these two, she’s made it known that she believes they both deserve a fair shot at love.

Cosmopolitan reports Brown told Jimmy Kimmel after the finale that both Weber and Johnson would be excellent Bachelor material. “I want them to have happiness so maybe it’ll work out better for them than it did for me,” she said.

Tyler Cameron has also commented on how he feels about being considered

Brown didn’t pick Tyler Cameron in the end, but it seems she may be willing to give things another shot since her relationship with Jed Wyatt ended. On the live finale of the show, she and Cameron made plans to go get a drink together. And they’ve since both made Instagram posts referencing that fateful drink that may be the start of a whole new relationship for them. For this reason, Brown probably doesn’t want to see Cameron as the next Bachelor star — but how does Cameron feel about the opportunity?

“Yeah, that’s something I’ve got to sit down and really think about. It’s an incredible opportunity, but it comes with a lot of responsibility,” he told Glamour when asked about whether he wanted to become the next Bachelor. “I’ve got to weigh all the options and see if it’s something I really want to go for—and if the opportunity presents itself too. Who knows? I just have to take it day by day at this point.”

Did Colton Underwood just say who he thinks the next Bachelor will be?

I hear pilots make good bachelors

We remember when Brown was initially crushed by Colton Underwood during his season of The Bachelor, but the two have since remained on good terms. And it seems Underwood may have some investment in who the next Bachelor will be, too. He posted this photo to Instagram of him wearing a pin of pilot wings with the caption, “I hear pilots make good bachelors.” And it had everyone thinking that perhaps Underwood believes Weber will be the next Bachelor star.

“Pilot Pete for next Bachelor,” a fan commented on Underwood’s Instagram. Another added, “Yes!!! Peter for bachelor!!!” Yet another wrote, “Pilot Peter is The Bachelor we all deserve!!”

There are others who commented on Underwood’s photo that they hope it’s Johnson instead of Weber, however — so we’ll have to wait and see who gets chosen. Either way, we’re excited to hear who it could be (and, of course, if Brown and Cameron ever go on that drink date).
