WGN Reporter Nancy Loo will be keeping a close eye on her son’s dating habits, along with millions of other people.

Loo’s son Connor is going to be a contestant on "The Bachelorette,"

"I'm still in shock, you guys," Loo said on WGN Morning News Tuesday. "I can't believe this is happening."

"He has been so focused on his career that he hasn't focused on his love life as much, so now it's going to be very public!" Loo said.

While Loo said she couldn't talk about how he got involved with the show, she hopes that his experience will be a positive one.

"I just hope that this is a good, positive experience, and that he does find someone. He just hasn't met 'the one,' and maybe 'The Bachelorette' is 'the one,' and if it's not, then I hope he finds 'the one,' out of the experience," she said.

Loo admitted to WGN Morning News anchor Robin Baumgarten that it will be strange to watch how her son behaves in a dating situation.

"I'm going to be watching probably with my eyes covered!" Loo said.
