The Bachelor is coming to Indiana. 

The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday that three members of the franchise—coach Frank Vogel and players Paul George and George Hill—will appear on the reality dating show in its upcoming episode. This season’s bachelor is Ben, who grew up in Indiana in the town of Warsaw. Every year, the contestants are taken to the bachelor's hometown for an at-home visit.

What does this all mean? Extra Mustard’s resident Bachelor expert Xandria James lent us her thoughts:

“He's from Indiana so I'm assuming the Pacers are on the show when he takes the girls to meet his parents. There are six women left right now. Three got eliminated on Monday. I think Ben really has feelings for all of the women he has left so this is where things start to get hard/more complicated as families come into the picture. I think it's probably going to come down to Jojo and Lauren B because I feel like he has the best connection with the two of them, but I really can't say who will win.”

There you have it. Don’t expect Paul George to make an appearance in the fantasy suite.
