Amy Schumer Would Be on ‘Bachelorette’ — If ABC Meets Her Conditions

In what would be the rawest (and most hilarious) season of “The Bachelorette” yet, comedian Amy Schumer said she would join the last-man-standing dating show — if ABC agrees to some conditions.

In an interview with E! News on Monday, Schumer said she would take on the role if she were allowed the following three stipulations: “A lot of money”; she would get to unapologetically be herself; and there would be an improved casting process.

“The casting process would have to be different,” Schumer said about the show’s “weird” job descriptions for contestants. “It’s like, ‘former investment banker’?! They’re like, ‘flower enthusiast’? You’re like, ‘But what do you do? How come you could leave your life?’ I love when it’s like, ‘I have five kids at home but I just came here to follow my heart.’ It’s like maybe go take care of your kids? I would keep it very real. And I don’t know if it’s good for that show.”

Fans have been rallying to put Schumer on the show. Even ABC wants her. Robert Mills, senior VP of alternative series, specials and latenight programming for ABC Entertainment, tweeted an offer to Schumer in May.

Fans haven’t had the best of luck in campaigning for the next Bachelor or Bachelorette. In 2012, there was support for Olympic gold-medal swimmer Ryan Lochte to be put on the show. Sean Lowe beat him out, at least on land.

The Bachelorette” airs at 8 p.m. Mondays on ABC.
