The creator of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchises, Mike Fleiss, told Ryan, “I guess it’s kinda interesting. I’ve never thought about it.” He says he’s never even spoken to the reality star—but then he gave it some thought, “Seriously, It would have to be a special edition of the Bachelorettte—I wouldn’t want to jump the shark.”
