Jesse Palmer Compares Hosting 'The Proposal' to Being the 'Bachelor'

Jesse Palmer is no stranger to looking for love on television and he’s comparing his experience on The Bachelor to hosting the new show The Proposal.

The 39-year-old former football player was the bachelor in season five and he picked Jessica Bowlin at the end, though he didn’t propose. They broke up a few months later.

“It is way less stressful hosting this show than being The Bachelor,” Jesse told ABC News about hosting The Proposal. “I sleep so much easier at night, it’s great.”

On the new series, an eligible bachelor or bachelorette must select someone to propose to from a pool of 10 contestants, by the end of the night!

“I’ve never seen anything like it, and I was very skeptical,” Jesse said. “Who is going to get down on one knee after speaking to someone that they haven’t even really been able to see for the last hour, and what I was shocked to find out was there are people out there hoping to find love that are willing to go to extreme measures to achieve this.”
