"The Bachelor" is allegedly pursuing Adam Scott (II) as the star of its next installment. The rumor began to swirl as Robert Mills, the producer of the reality dating show, tweeted on April 14, "So......Adam Scott as the next #Bachelor?? What say you, #Bachelornation?"
Host Chris Harrison chimed in, "Yep it's now officially the most dramatic #Masters ever!" He jokingly added, "Rumors this will be settled in a hot tub instead of replaying 18th #Masters."
Learning positive responses from fans, Mills wrote again on his Twitter, "The Adam Scott as #Bachelor idea has exploded. Will try and meet. And Ryan Lochte-this is what it means to have interest in you as #Bachelor."
A source from the ABC show tells E! News, "We are definitely going to pursue [Scott]. So far, no meeting's been set but we're trying. He could be a perfect fit...We're also considering other people Bachelor fans already know."
Adam Scott is an Australian professional golfer who plays mainly on the PGA Tour. The 32-year-old eligible bachelor recently won the 2013 Masters Tournament, marking his first major championship. He's also the first Australian to win the tournament in its 77 year history.
