Ever since we all fell in love with Dean Unglert on The Bachelorette -- right around the time he adorably flew a blimp with Rachel Lindsay, of course -- we've been keeping our fingers crossed he'd come back next season as the Bachelor. But unfortunately, it sounds like he's just not interested in the gig. Dean said he doesn't want to be the Bachelor, so it's time for everyone to kiss that dream good-bye.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dean admitted that he doesn't think he's right for the job, simply because he doesn't think he's ready to take something like that on right now. 

He said: 

"I'd say I don't think I'm ready yet, at this point in my life. Of course, I would never immediately dismiss any offer, but I think I'd really have to sit down and really think about it."

But still, there's a glimmer of hope -- he said he's not ready yet, so could that mean there might be a chance for him to return in the future? Please, ABC. You'd make all of us so happy!

So if Dean is not going to be the next Bachelor, who is? Traditionally, we'd expect it to be Eric, Peter, or Bryan -- whoever Rachel doesn't end up with during next Monday's finale. At this point, it's anybody's guess. Unfortunately, we probably won't know for at least a few more months, and the suspense is already killing us.

There is good news, though. Dean will be back on our TVs very soon, since he's joined this season of Bachelor in Paradise. We can't wait!
