Will Mike Johnson Be the Next ‘Bachelor’ Star? Fans Get Behind Hannah’s Contestant
Every once in a while, a Bachelorette contestant comes along that grabs Bachelor Nation’s attention, and in Season 15, that contestant is Mike Johnson.
The 31-year-old portfolio manager from San Antonio, Texas has been capturing the hearts of viewers since the May 13 premiere. And while he remains a contender for Hannah Brown‘s heart on Bachelorette 2019, fans are already campaigning for him to be their next Bachelor star.
As an Air Force veteran, Mike is a worldly man who has already been shown to have many great stories and plenty of conversation — both with Hannah and his fellow contestants. And fans know he’s not afraid to show his sensitive side after the May 27 episode, when the contestant opened up about the miscarriage of his child with a former girlfriend.
The moment saw a few tears shed from both parties and as the episode progressed, Mike proved himself to be an honest and stand-up guy when he alerted Hannah to fellow contestant Cam’s devious ways. His actions so far in the season have given viewers plenty to think about and enjoy, and if Hannah doesn’t choose him as her future husband, they know where they want to see him next.
Yes, Bachelor in Paradise is a possibility for the handsome suitor, but it’s not the coveted role of Bachelor on the original series. Plus, making Mike the Bachelor would etch the fan favorite into the show’s history as the first person of color to hold the Bachelor lead role. So far, Rachel Lindsay has been the only person of color to be The Bachelorette star, back in Season 13.
From his social media presence to his background, Mike is certainly Bachelor material. See what fans are saying below, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
