Mark-y your calendars for Bjarke, who has been cast for the newest season of The Bachelor. Set to premier this summer, 25 contestants will vie for the heart of the dreamy 41-year old Danish architect while living together in a luxurious mansion designed by Ingels himself.
Originally only hired by the Bachelor team as the show’s architect, they could not help falling for the Dane’s boyish charm (who could?!) and offered him the role of Bachelor. Ingels was “surprised and flattered” (so humble of him), and accepted enthusiastically, calling it a “unique opportunity to personally make use of one of his own buildings” (how coy!).
As for the romantic candidates themselves, Ingels says that while he doesn’t have a type, a good sense of humour is “very important” to him and that “my ultimate dream girl would be someone who ran a dumb architectural news parody website”.
Ingels’ wife was not available for comment.
