Familiar Face Coming to ABC

I'm not a huge TV girl but I love The Bachelor/ette. I wasn't a huge Jake Pavelka fan, but my faith in the selection of guys has been restored due to this guy:


Last week I kept seeing a bunch of my friends joining a facebook group called "Hunter Wagner - Bachelorette Contestant".  Hunter is a guy I went to high school and college with.  I clicked on it thinking he (or his friends) were trying to get him on the show and quickly figured out he wasn't applying- he just got done taping it!  Too funny.

The show premieres on Monday with Ali Fedowhatevertheheckherlastnameis taking the reigns and passing out the roses.  I've always liked the Bachelorette far more than The Bachelor because the guys replace the backstabbing cattiness with goofy antics.  It's so funny to watch what grown, contributing-to-society, men will do when put back in a frat-house environment.  And I have no doubt that Hunter will be front and center contributing to those antics.  If you need proof, check out this video that was posted on the facebook page:



I wish all wedding toasts had that much personality!  I've kind of lost touch with him, but he was always very charming and the life-of-the-party type.  It's definitely going to make this season much more fun to watch and I have someone to root for before it even starts.

I think ABC must love their Texas boys, because I also knew this guy from last season:



Remember him?  He was the foot-fetish dude.  Ha!  I've only met him a few times but he's good friends with my roommate's sister and a guy I used to date.  And apparently that foot fetish thing was pretty much an act. He certainly took it to a whole different {*creepy*} level though.

Anyways, if you're going to be watching this season of The Bachelorette, root for Hunter!  He's a great guy and how can you not cheer for a Texas boy that plays the ukulele?!?

Perfect example of what a huge school we went to. I've never met, nor do I have any memory of this alleged Hunter Wagner. Kinda hot though!
