The official announcement as to who will be the next Bachelor probably won't be made until The Bachelorette "After the Final Rose" special. But duh, of course there are already spoilers going around identifying the dude who landed the gig.
Supposedly one of Andi Dorfman's rejects will be giving finding love on TV another shot. This time, he'll have his pick of 25 ladies instead of competing with other guys to date just one woman.
And if the reports are true and this particular man is the next Bachelor? Uh ... let's just say we're all in for a real treat next season.
Warning -- MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.
According to RadarOnline, Chris Soules, the farmer from Iowa, landed the gig -- beating out other seemingly good choices Marquel Martin, Nick Viall, Josh Murray, Dylan Pettit, and Marcus Grodd.
I know, I know -- I was pretty convinced Marquel would be given the job too. But at least we'll get to see more of him on Bachelor in Paradise.
An insider claims, "Chris the farmer is the new Bachelor. They held auditions in NYC last week, and told everyone he was the new Bachelor."
(Way to jump the gun, ABC. If this report is true, of course.)
And while we can go ahead and assume this means that Andi will break Chris' heart in the coming weeks, exactly no one will be complaining about getting to know Chris even better when he's put in the driver's seat.
OMG. How hot is this dude? And aside from being incredibly handsome, he's also hard working, sweet, and such a romantic -- what with the "secret admirer" letters he wrote to Andi.

I honestly don't know how anyone can possibly say anything bad about him, which is basically a recipe for the perfect Bachelor, right? I mean, how often is someone chosen who the majority of fans absolutely adore?
Andi's loss is most definitely our gain. Hey -- at least she did one thing right as The Bachelorette in being dumb enough to let Chris go.
(Damn. I wonder if they're still taking applications for gals to be featured on Chris' season. Sign me up, please.)
Do you think Chris is the right person to be the next Bachelor?
