I disagree that Mike wouldn't be a great bachelor fit. Hannah set him up to be the next bachelor when she said "Mike's deserves to be loved fiercely" her same comment she made before she was chosen as the Bachelorette. I find Peter very dry (like Colton) and even Hannah made a comment he only talks about being a pilot. Enjoyed your two cents though!
