ABC’s New ‘Bachelor’ Is Revealed — and Social Media Throws a Fit

No sooner did ABC reveal the identity of the star of the upcoming 23rd season of “The Bachelor,” than Twitter and other social media sites lit up with complaints about the selection.

The network revealed this morning on “Good Morning America” that Colton Underwood, 26, is the new “Bachelor.” USA Today notes that Underwood is familiar to fans of the franchise, having been eliminated during the Becca Kufrin season of “The Bachelorette” and then resurfacing this summer on ‘Bachelor in Paradise.”

Soon the #NotMyBachelor hashtag was trending.

One Twitter user responded with a tweet reading: “What annoys me most about Colton as #TheBachelor is that he was forced at us all Bachelorette season & now all BIP season, & he still has no idea what he wants. I doubt he’ll stay with his final pick for more than a year & this season is destined to be a failure.”

Wrote another Twitter user: “so what time do the protesters meet at the mansion on the first filming day?#TheBachelor”

Still another Twitter user sent out the tweet below, incuding a photo of Underwood …

  1. Is that the reason Colton broke up with Tia, just a few days ago on BIP? Did ABC decide who the next Bachelor a month ago, or two months ago, when the BIP episodes were filmed?
