Last night, fans learned that Desiree Hartsock will be the newest romantic hopeful on the next The Bachelorette, but it looks like the lovely lass is gonna have to staunchly defend her perch.

That's because none other than Justin Bieber's mother, Pattie Mallette, is making a none-too-subtle play for the coveted gig!

The 38-year-old single mom live-tweeted up a storm during last night's finale, and in one revealing tweet, she copped to wanting a shot at being the show's next leading lady.

"Who will be the next Bachelorette? Me perhaps?? Hmmmmm...," she wrote.

Hmmm, indeed.

Earlier in the evening, Mallette proved to be quite a fan of the season wrap-up, writing, "This is definitely, by far.. the Most Dramatic Season Finale EVER!"

She also finally seemed to come around to Hartsock during the climactic proposal: "Ok that proposal was really amazing. She won me over in the end. And they ride off in an elephant together!? I'm happy 4 U."

Getting Mallette on the show wouldn't be such a far-fetched idea: After all, Biebs' mom already went on a friendly date with Chris Harrison. Here's hoping she picked up some essential insider tips from the Bachelor-Bachelorette host!
