“For more than 20 years, The Bachelor has brought the world dozens of unforgettable love stories, including at one time, my own,” Jesse said in a statement to Variety. “Falling in love is one of life’s greatest gifts, and I am humbled by the opportunity to return to the show as host this season to offer the newest Bachelor advice based on firsthand experience, and I am grateful to play a small part in his journey.”

Jesse, 42, is best known as a former NFL quarterback and television broadcaster. During season five of The Bachelor, which aired in 2004, he also starred as himself.
