Jesse Palmer Isn’t The ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Host We Need: It’s Wells Adams

Bachelor in Paradise isn’t a daily Bachelor franchise present. It’s a cool Bachelor franchise present. And thus, it deserves a cool host — not Jesse Palmer. (Sorry to this man.)

Whereas the previous Bachelor lead managed to maintain The Bachelor and The Bachelorette afloat the previous two seasons, he doesn’t essentially exude Paradise vibes. The spinoff, which invitations choose Bachelor Franchise alum on a three-week keep at a Mexico seashore for a second shot at discovering love, is enjoyable, chaotic, and a bit messy at instances. Paradise deserves a bunch who can effortlessly embrace that vitality, and Palmer feels too put collectively {and professional} for the job. Normally these qualities are fascinating in a bunch, however as a reminder, Paradise isn’t practically as structured because the franchise’s different reveals.

In the course of the September 27 premiere, Palmer tried his finest to adapt to Paradise. He walked throughout the seashore in sneakers, took a shot, and cracked some clearly scripted jokes, however his internet hosting felt pressured. Palmer defined he was “excited, honored, and humbled” to be part of the present, and I really believed that, however these real feelings weren’t sturdy sufficient to make corny quips reminiscent of “feels like man tears to me,” “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore artwork thou Romeo?” or “Viva la Paradise!” really feel pure.

If Palmer desires to maintain internet hosting The Bachelor, so be it. However is he actually the perfect match to navigate seashore hijinks, hook-ups, and heartbreak? In Chris Harrison’s absence, Season 7 of Paradise featured a rotating lineup of visitor hosts, together with David Spade, Lil Jon, Tituss Burgess, Lance Bass, and beloved Paradise bartender Wells Adams. Now for the document, I feel having a number of hosts in a single is just a little too chaotic, however why couldn’t one in every of these males — ideally Adams — have gone solo? Or why couldn’t one of many many ladies related to this franchise have a shot at Paradise host? Ship Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe to Mexico for a season, cowards!

In followers’ minds, the Paradise host potentialities are worthy of being explored. David Spade? Convey him again. Nathan Fielder? Let’s see what he’s bought. Gabby Windey’s Grandpa John? Get that man mic’d up.

The host choices are limitless, however after I consider Paradise, just one couple involves thoughts: Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland. After Adams appeared on Season 12 of The Bachelorette, he participated in Paradise Season 3 and made such a mark that he returned to take over as bartender when Jorge Moreno left the present. Adams returned to Paradise for the Season 8 premiere and will likely be bartending alongside Palmer, however the episode confirmed Adams already has a pure chemistry with the forged they usually really feel snug opening as much as him about their journeys.

For many who don’t know, Adams and Hyland, who just lately tied the knot, met on Twitter when Adams was pouring drinks on the spinoff. So why the heck aren’t we letting the 2 of them co-host? They’re king and queen of Paradise. Even Nicholas Braun (aka Cousin Greg on Succession) agrees it’s Adams’ time to shine.

In a 2021 interview with Us Weekly, Adams admitted that he was “just a little bit bummed” that Palmer was requested to host as an alternative of him after Harrison’s departure from the franchise. You understand what? SAME! With Adams at the moment internet hosting Hulu’s Finest in Dough and Hyland stepping in to host Peacock’s Love Island USA, it feels just like the Bachelor Franchise missed a significant alternative to revamp Paradise and provides followers what they need.
