January Jones Says Being on 'The Bachelorette' Is Her 'Dream,' Thinks Nick Viall Is 'Pretty Cute'
By Rachel McRady
Look out, Amy Schumer, there’s another A-lister who wants a shot at being the Bachelorette! January Jones revealed her love for the ABC reality competition series on The Late Late Show on Wednesday night.
The Mad Men alum, 39, admitted to host James Corden that she would love to be on The Bachelorette.

“I asked my publicist, you know,” Jones admitted. “I watch the show, have a couple glasses of wine, and Ben gets kicked off and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna be the next Bachelorette and get that guy.’”
Unfortunately, Jones’ idea was quickly squashed.
“And then she says it would ruin my career, and I get shot down but you know that’s my dream,” the actress insisted.
“If Ben was watching this now, if Ben from The Bachelor was watching this now would you want him to call you?” Corden asked.
“Hit him up!” fellow guest Samuel L. Jackson urged her.
“I have a blocked number so he wouldn’t know. I mean yes, yes, sure,” Jones said, blushing.
After Jackson, whose daughter works on the show, offered to help Jones make the love connection, she changed her tune slightly.

“[Ben]’s not even my favorite!” she said. And when she was pressed as to who she's interested in, Jones replied, “Well, Nick [Viall]’s pretty cute.”
Jones certainly has some competition for Viall’s heart. The current Bachelor is set to decide between Vanessa Grimaldi and Raven Gates in the show’s finale next week.
