Desiree Hartsock's season of The Bachelorette is in full swing, but we're already looking ahead to Bachelor Season 18! We can't wait for ABC to get started on the next chapter of their smokin' hot franchise, but first the main man needs to be cast.

Typically, The Bachelor Powers That Be (aka Chris Harrison and his minions) cast contestants from prior seasons of The Bachelorette, but as much as we love Des' dashing gents, we have our eye on the one and only Jef Holm. He's single, he's ready to mingle, and he's completely adorable! Plus, his fetish for flannel, gingham and knee socks ain't nothing to sneeze at.

Bachelor Nation has been rooting for Jef ever since he split up from Bachelorette Emily Maynard in Fall 2012, but he's finally gotten the big endorsement he needs. That's right, Sean "Billy Elliot" Lowe has officially taken it to Twitter and put in a good word for El Jefe, and with any luck ABC will listen.

"Does anyone else think @jefholm should be the next bachelor?" Sean tweeted on June 24. "Just a thought."

Ugh, we love it when Sean muses! Don't forget that this hunk is BFF with The Man Upstairs, which basically makes him a prophet. So yeah, Sean can see into the future. Deal with it.

Do you think Jef would make a good Bachelor, or would you rather see one of Des' current contestants take the throne? Hit the comments and tell us your thoughts.
