Fans Are Calling For This Unlikely Star to Be the Next ‘Bachelorette’

The Bachelorette has been one of the most popular shows on television for years and shows no signs of going away any time soon. Each week, millions of fans tune in to see what unfolds next, and it is pretty safe to say that most are addicted to the show.

In a nutshell, the reality show revolves around one single woman, while a group of eligible men competes for her attention. The season finale typically ends with a marriage proposal, yet not every couple is destined to make it to the altar.

As a spin-off of the equally popular show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette first premiered in 2003 and has been a fan favorite ever since. Each episode of the show ends with what is called a “rose ceremony”, where the “Bachelorette” will award all but one of her potential suitors a rose. The one person who does not receive a rose is sent home that week.

For those who are wondering how many couples from the show are still together, Shape reports that well over three-quarters of them don’t last.

One of the most exciting parts of the show is seeing who will be starring in the next season. So, who is the unlikely star that fans are calling for to be the next “Bachelorette”?

Who is Terri Irwin?

Most people are familiar with Terri Irwin, but for those who may not be, let’s discuss who she is.

According to IMDb, the producer and actress is also the wife of the late Steve Irwin, also known as the “Crocodile Hunter”. Born in Oregon in 1964, Irwin has appeared in series that include Croc Files, My Daddy, the Crocodile Hunter, Ocean’s Deadliest, and many more.

She has had a passion for animals her entire life, and she and her late husband Steve had two children together, a daughter named Bindi and a son called Robert Clarence.

Why is Terri Irwin thinking about dating again?

It has been over 13 years since the tragic death of Steve Irwin, and his wife has remained strong the entire time. Steve Irwin passed away suddenly during the filming of the Great Barrier Reef when a stingray fatally pierced his chest.

There is no doubt that Irwin was heartbroken after the incident that claimed her husband’s life and she was faced with the task of raising two small children on her own.

So, why is Irwin thinking about dating again? Well, according to New Idea, she has been encouraged to do so by none other than her daughter, Bindi, who recently became engaged herself. Seeing her beloved daughter so happy after finding someone to spend the rest of her life with has made Irwin feel that perhaps it is time to settle down with someone herself.

She surely knows that Steve would want her to be happy and to find a person who she can truly connect with on the deepest level possible, and we have to say that we agree.

Why are fans calling for Terri Irwin to be the next ‘Bachelorette’?

Typically, each new “Bachelorette” is a former contestant from the previous season of The Bachelor, making Irwin a pretty unlikely person to take on the role. So, why do fans think that she should?

It is because so many people think that she is just such an amazing woman who deserves happiness and love. Irwin has been a wonderful mother to her children, and she was an amazing wife to her late husband.

When Steve passed away, the world mourned along with the family, and now, it turns out that so many people want nothing more than to see Irwin fall in love again and have her happily ever after.

We are so excited to see what the future holds.
