ABC has not announced the 2015 star of “The Bachelor” yet, but fans of the hit reality show might already know who the lucky guy is – thanks to Arie Luyendyk Jr.
The 32-year-old “Bachelorette” alum took to Twitter Monday night and posted something a little suspicious.
“I’m not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people,” Luyendyk tweeted.
What does it mean? The runner-up from Emily Maynard’s season seems to be hinting at Chris Soules as the 2015 “Bachelor.”
For those unfamiliar with Chris Soules, he is a 32-year-old farmer from Iowa. He competed for Andi Dorfman’s heart on this past season of “The Bachelorette,” but was unsuccessful in winning the brunette beauty over. Soules passed the hometown date with flying colors and made it all the way to the “Fantasy Suite.” But when Andi whipped out the overnight date card she realized that Chris wasn’t the man for her. The bachelorette confessed that their relationship wasn’t as far along as with the other two contestants – Josh Murray and Nick Viall – and she sent the farmer home, heartbroken.
Fans of the reality series were waiting for the 2015 “Bachelor” announcement during “The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose” special. But host Chris Harrison never revealed the new star. Instead, Harrison teased fans in his Entertainment Weekly follow-up blog that the show had not yet decided who the lucky man would be.
“Obviously we take this decision very seriously and a lot goes into this process,” he explained in the post. “There are endless discussions and heated debates on which direction to go and what to do. We are very much close to making that decision, but the only big mistake we could really make is to rush this and try to get it done in time for last night’s show.”
Thanks to Arie Luyendyk Jr., the new “Bachelor” seems to be out in the open. An official announcement will be made on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, at 7 a.m. ET.
