There are many fans rallying around Khloe Kardashian given her messy breakup with Tristan Thompson. But now The Bachelorette fans are rallying around her too because there is a rumor she may be the new star. But is that rumor possible? Here are the reasons why she probably won’t agree to do the dating show.

Mike Fleiss tweeted that Khloe Kardashian could be the bachelorette

The whole rumor of Kardashian becoming the next star of The Bachelorette started by Mike Fleiss tweeting “@khloekardashian is very much in contention… Stay tuned! #TheBachelorette.” He then tweeted, “Any decision regarding @khloekardashian as the new #TheBachelorette will need to be approved by my dear friend @KrisJenner …”

This got Bachelor Nation talking, but there are a few reasons why this is more likely about getting people to talk about the casting of the new season than a real possibility of Khloe Kardashian starring in it for several reasons.

Khloe Kardashian is probably going to want to take some time to heal after her breakup with Tristan Thompson

The reality star’s problems with the father of her child have been so public for so long. He was first caught on video cheating with several other women before reportedly being seen making out with her little sister’s best friend.

Chances are she’s not going to jump right into a new relationship. Especially one that would have the pressure of getting engaged after a few short weeks on reality television.

The Kardashians and Jenners are most likely tied to one network

The reality show family don’t just make a lot of money because people watch their show. It’s because they probably have an exclusive deal with E! and can’t have shows on other networks.

There is a chance their deal could be up so they can jump ship. But it’s doubtful that only one family member would do that. The whole family tends to stick together when it comes to business. So if one goes there would probably be a big announcement that they are all going to be on a different network.

Another genius move by the famous family is that members of the family are producers on their own show. There have certainly been embarrassing moments on the show but they still get a say of what makes it on air.

The Bachelorette is notorious for not letting any of their stars or contestants have a say in how the show gets edited. So Khloe Kardashian would have to give up a lot of power she’s used to having just to date random people on air.

There are some good options for The Bachelorette left on The Bachelor

Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor isn’t over yet. Cassie Randolph, Hannah Godwin, Caelynn Miller-Keyes, and Tayshia Adams are still around.

Those aren’t bad options! Randolph has a lot of drama around her due to her being on another reality show. Godwin is beautiful and was already Instagram famous before this. Miller-Keyes made headlines for bravely talking about her sexual assault this season. Adams would also be a dramatic choice given she reportedly dated someone right before she appeared on the show.

It’s still possible that the show could break away from its formula to pick the bachelorette. But given the other reasons, Khloe Kardashian probably wouldn’t do the show and the show is still in a good spot without her.
