As the sun is beginning to set on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette, fans of the reality show are now anxiously awaiting the announcement of who will be the next Bachelor.
Well settle in Bachelor Nation because that wait might drag out a little longer than normal this year.
Entertainment Tonight caught up with host Chris Harrison and he revealed that the show has not been in talks with anybody just yet to become the next Bachelor.
“[Fans will know] as soon as I do,” Harrison told E.T. “We don’t start taping for quite some time. So there’s no reason — I know people would love for us to announce it, but there’s no reason to. We would just be jumping the gun. So, we’re going to wait.”
Harrison said that the network will start their search once Lindsay’s season comes to an end and after the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise “runs its course.”
Bachelor Nation has been speculating that it could be one of the final four men that were left this season, especially fan favorite Dean Unglert, who was the most recent to be eliminated.
Peter Kraus, Eric Bigger and Bryan Abasolo, all who still have a chance at love with Lindsay, would also be viable options.
“Dean, Peter, Brian, Eric. There’s four great candidates right there,” Harrison said. “They’d all be great Bachelors, they would. I can’t poke a hole in any of them, but in all seriousness, we’ve not picked a Bachelor. So, I can tell you, no Bachelor is chosen.”
We’ll see if Harrison or any of the other men spill the beans this Monday, July 31 when The Bachelorette: Men Tell All special airs on ABC.
