Now that The Bachelorette is officially over, and Andi Dorfman is happily engaged to cutie Josh Murray, our curiosity over who will be the next Bachelor is somewhat insatiable. Chris Soules, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and Marquel Martin seem to be the front runners, all of whom would be excellent choices.
But Bachelor creator and producer Mike Fleiss tweeted something cryptic on Wednesday that has us questioning not only if the next guy has already been chosen, but if we're going to be disappointed by him. And let's face it, after the disaster known as Juan Pablo Galavis, fans of the show are already a little bit weary.
Fleiss took to Twitter to beg fans to keep an "open mind" about the next Bachelor:
Regardless of which of these great guys gets to be the next Bachelor, I hope you'll give him a chance... #openmindopenheart.— Mike Fleiss (@fleissmeister) July 31, 2014
"Give him a chance"? What does that even mean? That we won't be happy with whomever they pick initially? What's taking them so long, anyway?
Traditionally, the next Bachelor or Bachelorette is announced during the finale of the previous season, but we were left hanging on Monday night, leading to massive speculation that a new guy hasn't even been chosen yet.
And with this tweet, we're sort of worried about who it might be. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to do as instructed and keep an open mind and an open heart. And cross our fingers it's not another Juan Pablo.
Who do you think the next Bachelor will be?
