Will "The Bachelorette" 2017 with rachel lindsay include the man who almost became last season's "Bachelor"? It's not uncommon for previous contestants or leads to show up again in new seasons of the reality show, whether it be to offer advice or give some words of encouragement. It also symbolizes an element of completion for some, such as when Andi Dorfman paid Nick Viall a visit before his overnight dates with the final three contestants.

Will Luke be on 'The Bachelorette' this spring?

Luke Pell raved about Rachel in an interview when he shared his thoughts about ABC picking her for the lead.

He believes she's going to do great because of her ability to handle a "high pressure situation" and will use her sharp skills as an attorney to get through the process. He said with her "analytical" background, it'll serve her well to "navigate those waters."

When asked if he'd be up for going on a one-on-one date with Rachel Lindsay on "The Bachelorette," Pell said he'd jump at the chance!

"Absolutely," he said. "Sign me up!”

Luke hated Nick's season of 'The Bachelor'

In a separate interview with In Touch magazine, Luke slammed Nick's season of "The Bachelor" as terrible and called the 29-year-old a "narcissist." He's unimpressed with Nick's decision to go on "Dancing with the Stars" and thinks that speaks volumes.

It makes sense in a way that he's bitter about the whole situation given the fact Nick was handed what he believed was his gig until the last minute.

It was claimed by sources later on that Luke didn't get the lead because he was more interested in promoting his music career than finding love. Turns out, Nick was criticized for the exact same thing -- only his supposed goal is to be an actor.

Nick got engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi in the finale this week. Vanessa is moving from Canada to the United States and says she supports Nick's stint on "DWTS."
