A point of view straight from the beach front! While ABC has officially named Jesse Palmer as the host of time 8 of Bachelor in Paradise, quite a few previous stars ended up rooting for Wells Adams to choose about the gig.
“Wells was extra interactive with all of us than the host was just because he was there each individual working day at the bar. And he genuinely experienced a sort of host position in chatting about actual, true emotions, providing tips,” Kendall Very long, who appeared on seasons 5 and 7 of BiP, claimed on the Tuesday, Could 17, episode of Us Weekly’s “Here for the Correct Reasons” podcast.
Just after Chris Harrison stepped back again from the franchise in 2021, the network enlisted a sequence of movie star visitor hosts to aid guidebook the show. Wells, who has been the bartender due to the fact season 4 in 2017, also had a much larger job on period 7. In addition to staying behind the bar, he was the “master of ceremonies” and hosted the last 7 days.
“The hosts by themselves, we don’t seriously see that usually. We see ’em in the course of rose ceremonies and they enable guide that,” Kendall continued. “Wells — he’s been through it, he’s professional it, having that much more good friend[ly] function and getting ready to have conversations with him. I identified [Wells] to be seriously useful. And I’m not guaranteed if he’d be able to fulfill that role. Not as the bartender, maybe, it would just variety of rearrange the demonstrate a bit.”
Though the Just Curious writer noted that she’s self-confident Jesse is “really excellent at what he does or else he would not be there,” she concluded that Wells could “definitely” stability the roles of host and bartender. “I consider they are, possibly, trying to tie Paradise and Bachelor and Bachelorette together far more by acquiring just one single host,” she told Us. “Maybe that is what their target is.”
She then joked, “I have not viewed anything at all with Jesse Palmer remaining the host. I have sort of not viewed points since I was on. PTSD, I guess.”
Tammy Ly, who appeared on time 7 of BiP, instructed Us final thirty day period that she “really feel[s] Wells must just be the long term host.”
“I consider he’s killer. He has excellent commentary. He’s amusing. He’s also sympathetic and, like, truly relatable,” she instructed Us. “He’s been on the clearly show right before. Jesse is good and I assume that if they just required him for a hosting placement, that’d be excellent. But Paradise is so substantially additional in depth and private with the cast. I imagine that Wells would just kill it.”
Fellow period 7 alum Jessenia Cruz agreed.
“I do appreciate the notion of the celeb friends coming each and every now and then — or movie star hosts. I enjoy that. I thought that was terrific, so if they wanna keep on that? Best. Or if they continue to keep Wells as the host and, maybe, have a person variety of choose up the mantle of the Paradise bartender, that’d be interesting too,” she explained, “But, you know, Jesse Palmer — I do not have everything in opposition to him, I assume he was a excellent host for The Bachelor, but he doesn’t need to be in Paradise.”
Bachelor in Paradise is set to tape this summer months and air on ABC this drop.
