I had no idea that John Mayer was such a fan of “The Bachelor”, but apparently that’s how he’s been spending his free time. During a recent appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, John revealed that he is absolutely obsessed with the reality show. After a friend nudged him to follow the show and give it a chance, he said that he caved in and began watching as Brad Womack tried to find love.
He said, “I don’t even feel like it’s my fault for liking it. It’s not a guilty pleasure. It’s designed to be a pleasure. It’s like a producer’s game. I wouldn’t be as excited to meet a cast member as I’d be to meet the guy who cuts that show. They have to ask someone like Ben like, ‘Okay, Ben, we need you to walk out on the balcony without a shirt and just think.'”
After doing an impression of Ben Flajnik, Ellen asked his opinion on the last season’s winner, Courtney Robertson. He said, “There was nothing you could say to Ben to not pick Courtney. Girls were coming up to him, like, ‘I watched Courtney rip somebody’s face off.’ And he’d go, ‘I’ll take that under consideration.'”
Ellen asked, “What if they come to you and say, ‘Would you be the Bachelor?'” He responded, “It’s one of those things where I would waste their time taking a meeting, just so I could hear more about it. Ultimately I’d say no. But I would just have to take the meeting.”
Do you think John would make a good Bachelor?
