Luke Pell Reveals How He Found Out He's Not 'The Bachelor'

Luke Pell had his bags packed to start his journey on The Bachelor and found out that he was no longer the next suitor just 11 hours before his flight to Los Angeles. The gig ended up going to franchise veteran Nick Viall.

“We were all satisfied, had agreed to the contracts and everything was moving forward,” the 31-year-old aspiring country singer told Us Weekly. “I was checked in to my flight to come to L.A. I got a call from producers Sunday night at about 10 p.m. They said ABC had decided to quote-unquote go in a different direction. I was supposed to fly out Monday morning at 9 a.m. I had my bags packed and everything. Most dramatic Monday ever!”

Luke came in fourth place on JoJo Fletcher‘s season of The Bachelorette, which ended this summer.

“We had planned for intro filming and had planned to have my sister come on for a date and give advice as part of the show,” Luke added. “I met with the wardrobe guys. Everything was moving forward. Everyone on the production level was expecting it to be me, as well.”

“I was emotionally and mentally all prepared. My family was happy about it. So I’m recalculating what I’m going to be doing,” Luke continued. “I’m just happy to get back to my life in Nashville as an entrepreneur and a songwriter. Those are two passions of mine. I put them on hold for the TV show, and now I can return to that.”

Don’t expect to see Luke on the show again as he says he “probably wouldn’t do it” if they came back and asked him to do the show in the future.

    What a damn shame, I would have loved to see him as the bachelor. I don’t like how the producers handled things. I’m still interested in watching Nick Viall do his thing, though.
