Chris Lambton still considering offer to star in next 'The Bachelor'


By Reality TV World staff, 08/26/2010 

Chris Lambton is still considering whether he wants to serve as the star of the next edition of The Bachelor, according to host Chris Harrison.

"There's an ongoing dialogue," Harrison told People in a Wednesday report. "I was just with him this weekend in North Carolina and we talked about the show -- it may be right for him, but it may not be."

Last week, E! News had reported that the 33-year-old landscaper and former teacher -- who lost out to Roberto Martinez during the finale of Ali Fedotowsky's The Bachelorette -- had turned down an offer to star in The Bachelor's next season, which will premiere early next year.

Lambton had reportedly based his decision on a desire to step out of the media spotlight and resume his "normal life" -- which was consistent with his prior comments about whether he'd be interested in serving as The Bachelor's next star.

"Honestly, it's something that I'll have to think long and hard about because it was hard watching, you know, so much of my personal life and intimate details of like dating and love on TV," The Bachelorette runner-up and viewer favorite told reporters earlier this month.

"It's hard to share that kind of thing with many millions of people who watch the show.  So, I mean, it's definitely something that I'll have to, you know, really, really think about.  I'm not really sure if I want to share all that again."

While E! News reported that The Bachelor producers "really" want Lambton and are still hoping to "convince" him to star in the show, Harrison said that's not the case.

"I don't want to push him into something he's not ready to do, or it's not going to be right and we'll all end up regretting," he told People.

"You have to take aside the clamoring of millions of fans [who] want him to be the Bachelor just because they [want] to wish him well.  But they don't necessarily know what's right for him or what’s right for the show."
