He knows how to handle it -- and there's nothing worse than a bad Bachelor running the show
A boring Bachelor is one thing, but that happens almost as a matter of course. One who can't control the situation? Damning to everything. They need to be able to unwrap the shy girls, keep stride with the crazies, corral 25-deep cocktail parties, decipher who's lying about what and to whom and why, deal with dads who mount shotguns on their trucks, and, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SAY SOMETHING FUNNY EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. I do not personally find Nick funny at all, but he's at least going to try.
