Kaley Cuoco loves The Bachelor. Mind you, that’s not exactly breaking news. She wears her fandom both on her sleeve and in her custom leggings. No really, she has special leggings because she’s no squirrely amateur when it comes to ABC’s surprisingly durable romance + humiliation reality franchise.
Seeing as the Big Bang Theory star is now unattached, the idea’s been floated out there that Cuoco could make the leap from fan to Bachelorette star if it tickled her fancy. (Broadcast standards suggest that fancy tickling should be subtitled behind the closed doors of the fantasy suite.) Heck, last month host Chris Harrison even suggested she’d be an ideal candidate.
“Kaley would be great, I would love that,” Harrison told reporters on a conference call on Friday. “That would be fun, I would love to have her on. And I think she loves to drink wine as much as I do!”
So could we ever see Cuoco into the realm of roses, tears, booze, more tears, boozy tears and an industrial-sized drum of Purell? The 8 Simple Rules alum told E! News at PaleyFest LA 2016 that she’d prefer to stay on the “fan” side of the show’s wheelings and dealings.
“No! No! No! Let me set that straight, no!” she said. “I’d rather just watch and judge everyone else. I don’t wanna be judged! I’ve got to have them on my TV and watch them.”
You can’t really argue with that logic. If you’re glued to the show for drama, heartbreak, and to see how many pharmaceutical reps this country can maintain, being on the actual program probably flips from novelty to nightmare pretty quickly. Plus, every Walgreens checkout counter has like 20 mags speculating on Cuoco’s romantic life already, so who needs the added magnifying glass? (Well, aside from the usual suspects that scramble to be on celebrity reality dating shows.)
