19 TV Characters Who Should be the Next Bachelor

at .  Updated at .

The Bachelor is always making headlines, and we're going to make our own by tossing out some characters who should be the next to try his hand at the ladies.

Whether they're they're suave and debonair or a man's man, we're pretty sure they'd make for much more entertaining viewing than the blokes who really make the cut.

1. Elijah Mikaelson - The Originals

Elijah Mikaelson - The Originals
He's handson, compassionate, family oriented and not consumed with revenge like other family members. He's a wonderful dresser and cares for children even when he isn't the father. Oh, and he's a vampire from the original line. What more could you want? Neck free zone, of course.

2. Charles Brooks - Younger

Charles Brooks - Younger
Charles is tall, dark and handsome, recently divorced and a successful publisher who appreciates his employees and promotes from within. He'll even accompany his dinner guest to the dentist when her veneer falls off.

3. Dean Sanderson - The Grinder

Dean Sanderson - The Grinder
Dean is a man of many talents. Not only did he have a successful television show for many years, but he's now joined his family to become a lawyer, as well. And that tagline? Does anyone not want to see the look on the ladies' faces when they get a load of that?

4. Clive Babineaux - iZombie

Clive Babineaux - iZombie
Everyone is always screaming Ravi, Ravi, Ravi. Well what about Clive? Clive is a great detective with a good worth ethic, he's skeptical and a little bit ornery. After seeing him with Liv, we don't think he'd be a pushover. How refreshing.

5. Steve McGarrett - Hawaii Five-0

Steve McGarrett - Hawaii Five-0
Is it still the tradition to take all of the ladies to a destination suitable for the fellas? Well, we vote it is. Off to Hawaii! There would be a lot of hiking and probably a few more international drug lords to fend off than expected, but so be it.

6. Dean Winchester - Supernatural

Dean Winchester - Supernatural
Sure, both Winchesters could use a romantic boost, but Dean would be far better suited to the Bachelor format. The ladies would be required to swill beers and sing karaoke, among other things, and might have to fend off a demon or two. Definitely a good time.

7. Rick Grimes - The Walking Dead

Rick Grimes - The Walking Dead
Hey, it's slim pickin's in the middle of the zombie apocalypse, and Rick could use a break. He cleans up niced and fights off all intruders without hesitation. He'd probably expect his ladies to be fast, shoot well (guns or bows, their choice) be willing to put up with a teenage boy and a lot of zombies.

8. Eli Gold - The Good Wife

Eli Gold - The Good Wife
Eli is actually quite the ladies' man. Most importantly, he's a game player. He'll lie with the best of them to get what he wants. While the ladies lie, he'll be doing it as well. Hearts will be broken, maybe even his.

9. Raymond "Red" Reddington - The Blacklist

Raymond "Red" Reddington - The Blacklist
A very secretive and intense man, Red will offer up the very best of everything. But he'll also know more about the ladies and their families than they've ever known about themselves, so they best not lie. The polar opposite of Eli Gold, this will be about truth and lies could be deadly.

10. President Fitzgerald "Fitz" Grant - Scandal

President Fitzgerald "Fitz" Grant - Scandal
Alright. The President of the United States. Does anything more even need to be said about the possibilities of The Bachelor with this man at the helm? And it MUST take place in The White House. Contests? Speechwriting and table settings.

11. Fox Mulder - The X-Files

Fox Mulder - The X-Files
All these years later, and Fox still has no significant other. Well, the truth is still out there, Mulder. We'll get you a stable of red heads who may or may not believe. Their job is to convince Mulder they're the one. Sounds simple enough.

12. Hank Voight - Chicago PD

Hank Voight - Chicago PD
Voight is all about family, whether by blood or by badge. He has no time at all for the ladies, so he's a perfect bachelor. He'll find something wrong with every one, will keep secrets and hide out, but if they're persistent and petulant, they may stand a chance.

13. Matt Donovan - The Vampire Diaries

Matt Donovan - The Vampire Diaries
There isn't anything Matt can't do. He's been a boyfriend to many, protector and pal. He can entertain and shoot. So what can the ladies do to prove themselves? Keep their eyes on him. All affections on Matt. He may just die being the sole beneficiary of so much attention. Be cautious ladies, this one's a catch!

14. Harvey Specter - Suits

Harvey Specter - Suits
Harvey has had a lot of women, and a lot of success in business, but the "one" has eluded him. Maybe if given a large enough sampling, he'll find one that's "suitable." She has to like sports, enjoy a stiff drink, a good meal and inside jokes.

15. Lucious Lyon - Empire

Lucious Lyon - Empire
Lucious Lyon might give the President of the United States a run for the money on the best contestant. Wealthy, powerful and connected to people in all walks of life, women will be lining up to get a piece of the Empire. Lucious loves women, but he's a tricky one and may never quite get over Cookie. Emulate her, ladies!

16. Ichabod Crane - Sleepy Hollow

Ichabod Crane - Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod has been back for three years and still hasn't really taken the plunge into dating. Let's help him along. Wouldn't it be hilarous to see him try to navigate the waters of over a dozen modern women attempting to capture his attention? The intellectual barrier alone would be worth the time.

17. Lucifer - Lucifer

Lucifer - Lucifer
Hey, the king of hell needs a little lovin' too. As you will soon discover, he's caring, kind and witty as hell. That's redundant. But you get the point. The ladies love him without the show, but it will be incredibly entertaining watching him try to make heads or tails out of which are true and which just under a spell.

18. Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold - Legends of Tomorrow

Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold - Legends of Tomorrow
Captain Cold has a soft streak running through him, which is not only apparent in his dealings with The Flash, but from the looks of his new one with Sara Lance. Let the ladies try to break his cold exterior and watch him try to banter his way into a lasting relationship.

19. Kelly Severide - Chicago Fire

Kelly Severide - Chicago Fire
Women love a man in uniform, and Kelly looks great in and out of his. He's also wickedly sweet and caring, once willing to have a baby with his best friend. He's been dancing around a long-term relationship and it's time he found one. Playing foosball, drinking beer, and fishing will be among the contests to win his heart.
