For winning the Masters, Adam Scott will receive a $1.44 million check, a new green jacket ... and an invitation to be the next Bachelor?
After the handsome 32-year-old took home his first major championship title Sunday, the thought of Scott on the popular ABC show gained some leverage on Twitter. Seeing this movement, producers began looking into the idea of having Scott star in "The Bachelor."
"We are definitely going to pursue [Scott]," a source from the show told E! News. "So far, no meeting's been set but we're trying. He could be a perfect fit."
Scott, who has been romantically linked to tennis star Ana Ivanovic and actress Kate Hudson, wouldn't be the first athlete to appear on the show. Jesse Palmer, the former Florida and NFL quarterback, appeared on the show in 2004. Later that year, pro bass fisherman Byron Velvick appeared as the Bachelor. Velvick selected Mary Delgado, who came to love bass fishing so much that she began competing in tournaments.
This doesn't seem like an ideal time for Scott to think about making the switch to reality TV. He just won his first major championship, and adding a significant distraction could be detrimental to the development of his game. But, hey, maybe the guy is looking for love.
Robert Mills, the show's producer, stoked the Adam Scott flames with this tweet, which also managed to take a swipe at Ryan Lochte:
