'The Bachelorette' season 15 is nearing its end, and fans are now curious to find out who will Hannah Brown fall in love with. With just nine suitors left out of the 30 that entered the mansion when the season first premiered, it is not as easy as it might seem to speculate who might end up winning Brown's heart. 

There have been quite a few surprises in the journey till now. Starting from Scott Anderson who entered the series with a girlfriend back home, right to the battle of the Lukes. But now that the season is nearing its end, that only means it's time for 'Bachelor in Paradise.'

Season 6 of 'Bachelor in Paradise' will see the contestants from previous seasons of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' who never found love, get another shot at making a possible summer fling into love. 

But even though it is time for 'Bachelor in Paradise' that hasn't stopped fans from starting to speculate who will be the next bachelor for season 24. Though some fans hope that the next bachelor would be either Jed Wyatt or Tyler Cameron if they don't end up with Brown, most fans are rooting for Mike Johnson to be the next bachelor of season 24. 

Taking to Reddit fans reveal why they are rooting for Mike to be the next bachelor. Some state that the series will finally have an older bachelor which will result in the season having older suitors for him, unlike Colton Underwood's season where the suitors were pretty young. Some fans also reveal that it will also make him the first black male lead.

"As far as Mike being the Bachelor: We finally have the perfect candidate for the first black male lead, (basically the male Rachel equivalent) and I just think that if they don't pull the trigger finally and make it happen now, then it's never going to happen," wrote a fan on Reddit. 

While another fan said, "Mike is the only option I find interesting and charismatic. I don't really care that he was involved in drama. That's never really been an issue for previous Bachelors and with Hannah for the first time it wasn't an issue for Bachelorette. I think he'd be a good foil for the women on his season and I think could draw out some interesting conversations from them, which with the past few seasons combined we really need. I think he can play along with how ridiculous the show is but also be mindful that people's feelings are involved. He's smooth but not rehearsed. And I like that he's not afraid of being blunt. It's refreshing in a sea of men who are trying their best to only speak in meaningless Bachelor vernacular."

"Mike would be an AMAZING lead. It’s just sad that black BN leads have to work 4x as hard to even be considered. I definitely think casting Mike as the next bachelor would be the best move for BN," wrote another fan. 

Adding to that another fan wrote, "Mike being cast as the bachelor is the only way we'll get an older bachelorette. If tyler is bachelor, i guarantee his cast will be a colton 2.0 and we'll have a caelynn 2.0 become bachelorette. Not to mention, Mike just seems like such a great guy who's genuinely ready for marriage! he's such catch." 

Even though fans are rooting for Mike, we will have to wait and see who the bachelor franchise ends up choosing as 'The Bachelor'for season 24.
