Chris Lambton: I'd Do The Bachelor if I Could "Break the Rules"
Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton may not accept a rose from ABC. A show insider tells Us Weekly that the landscaper, 33 -- who is being wooed by producers to be the next Bachelor -- is getting cold feet.
"He thought it was weird to have people watch him so closely on the show," the source says. Indeed, the pal says Lambton regrets talking on TV about his mom's death from cancer. And joining the show isn't something he takes lightly.
"If I was going to do it, it'd be on my own terms," he told Us August 22 at the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Although Lambton wouldn't confirm to Us whether he had officially turned down ABC, he added: "I'd want to do it the right way for myself in order to end up with the perfect girl for me. If I needed to break the rules, so be it."
Producers (who insiders say have no backup) are still hoping he says yes. "They haven't given up," says the source.
