The Bachelor's cast may be getting older, according to the ABC executive in charge of the reality franchise.
The network may consider increasing the age of women cast on The Bachelor in response to the catty behavior seen on Peter Weber's season and the perception that many of his bachelorettes have appeared too immature to be ready for marriage.
"You see a lot of people talking about the age of contestants, I think that's something we'd probably look at and say, 'Does it need to be aged up? Are these girls ready?'" ABC executive Robert Mills toldEntertainment Tonight in a recent interview.
In addition to speculation that a bachelorette nearly fresh out of college wouldn't be ready to walk down the aisle, there's been a lot of talk online Peter's edition of The Bachelor has been the cattiest ever.
Girls were fighting and throwing each other under the bus week to week until the latest episode.
