The next season of The Bachelorette will feature Michelle Young and will start next month but believe it or not, we already know who the next Bachelor will be. 28 year old Clayton Echard who will first compete in Michelle’s Bachelorette season is on tap to become the next Bachelor. He was seen with a camera crew in his home town of Missouri.  An insider said “The caliber of men who came on to Michelle’s season was incredible. Each guy was hotter than the next and so many of them treated her like a queen,” the insider said. “There was so much excitement about a lot of them. Clayton was no exception.” An official announcement won’t be made for a while.
