Clayton Echard Is Officially The Next Star Of 'The Bachelor'

It’s official – Clayton Echard is the next star of The Bachelor!

ABC announced the big news tonight after the hometown dates on The Bachelorette, and released the adorable new poster with Clayton cuddling up to a lot of puppies.

Clayton‘s run on Michelle Young‘s season ended last week, when she told him that she wasn’t fully ready to meet his family, which would happen if he had advanced to the traditional “hometown dates” week of the competition.

“I don’t feel that I’m able to get there with you in time,” she told him during their one-on-one.

It was first rumored that Clayton was to be the star of the next Bachelor season in September, but ABC had yet to confirm the reports.

Just a week after that, he was spotted filming a group date, seemingly confirming the reports at that time.

The Bachelor will return on January 3, with Jesse Palmer as host.
