Now that Arie Luyendyk, Jr.'s mad kissing skills are out of the running to be the next Bachelorthe focus seems to be down to two candidates: Sean Lowe of The Bachelorette Season 8 or Roberto Martinez of The Bachelorette Season 6.

It's possible ABC will cast an out-of-left-field wild card as the Season 17 Bachelor, but that's unlikely. Bachelor creator/producer Mike Fleiss has been tweeting about the unusually difficult decision of picking the next guy. (Guess they don't want to go through another Ben season...) Fleiss tweeted on August 29, "The decision will be made in the next week. U know those showbiz types. Any excuse to turn a 3-day weekend into a full-blown vacation..."

It's possible the decision has already been made and contracts signed, but if not, now is the time to make your choice known in the most clear and passionate terms. Someone is going to hand out roses this coming January and if you don't like the results, you need to be able to turn to everyone else and say "Don't blame me, I voted for [X]!" You know, like after a real political election.

So which guy do you want as the Season 17 Bachelor? Vote below!
