My situation is different from the others, “said Michael, who is a widower and single father.” I have to take into account my family, my son, how they would interpret it. It would be a totally different season. At this point, I’m not very interested, but they haven’t even offered it to me. “
While Michael may hesitate to lead the franchise, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams, who have hosted this season of High school, they are supporting you to do just that.

Anyone who did it is really amazing,” she said. . “I can’t even imagine going through that, but that’s something I’d have to dig into and think about. Right now, I’m not thinking about it.”
