Bachelor 2014: When Will ABC Reveal The Lead for Season 18?
Desiree Hartsock's emotional season of The Bachelorette has reached its triumphant end, which means you're probably curled up in the fetal position wondering what you're going to do with the rest of your life. Well, fear not, fellow rose addicts. The overlords at ABC are gearing up for The Bachelor 2014, and — gasp! — they've already picked the main man in question!
We're dying to know which former Bachelorette contestant will embark on his very own love journey, and it looks like we won't have to wait much longer to find out. Yep, ABC's president, Paul Lee, just dropped the bombshell that the next Bachelor will be announced tonight (August 5) during The Bachelorette's live “After The Final Rose” special!
No word yet as to who will earn the coveted role, but we're thinking one of Desiree's final contenders will step up to the rose-covered plate. Fan-favorite Brooks Forester is an obvious choice now that he's eliminated himself from the competition, as are Desiree's finale two, Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried. Both these bros will be heartbroken if Des rejects their proposals during the finale, and there's no better way to go on the rebound than with a harem of single ladies.
Of course, we can't rule out professional stud, Juan Pablo Galavis, or everyone's favorite Texan singer/songwriter, Zak Waddell, both of whom would make dynamite Bachelors!
So, which of Des' ex-boyfriends do you think will be crowned Bachelor?! Hit the comments and tell us your theories. And don't forget that ABC could psych everyone out and pick a total noobie!
