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.

Chris Harrison Explains Why Nick Viall Was Named 'The Bachelor' Over Luke & Chase

Chris Harrison went on Good Morning America on Wednesday (August 31) to reveal why Nick Viall was named the new Bachelor, as opposed to presumed frontrunners Chase McNary and Luke Pell from last season of The Bachelorette.

“At the end of the day, when we were discussing all of the candidates — and Luke and Chase were definitely on the board — it just got down to that final question of ‘Who is the most deserving? Who is the most sincere? Who have we watched time and time again come on the show to find love and come up short each and every time?’” Chris said. “We all just kept coming back to Nick, and it’s just crazy enough to work.”

“The good news is [that] it’s worked for him. He’s fallen in love on the show. He has sincerely tried to make it work, and he’s just come up a little bit short each time. But he’s done his part. He’s given himself to this process. And again, at the end of the day, this wasn’t an indictment on Luke or Chase as much as it was more of a compliment to Nick, and he is that sincere guy that really does wanna make this work,” Chris added.

Who Is the Next 'Bachelor' for 2017? Our Top Choices Revealed!

One of the moments that we were hoping for on the season finale of The Bachelorette was the announcement of the next Bachelor, but it didn’t happen.

SPOILER ALERTJoJo Fletcher decided to pick Jordan Rodgers in the end, which leaves some great guys up for grabs for the upcoming season.

The guy who is the next Bachelor usually ends up being one of the final four, so that narrows the competition down to Robby Hayes, Chase McNary, and Luke Pell.

Of course, the Bachelor isn’t automatically going to be one of those guys. We’ll have to wait and see who gets the gig!
