“Bachelorette” fans don't have to wait to find out who the next “Bachelor” will be! ABC is continuing it’s tradition, and will be choosing one of Desiree Hartsock’s dumped former lovers to continue his search for love as the new “Bachelor.”
TV Guide is reporting that ABC will announce the lucky “Bachelorette” contestant during the “After The Final Rose” special, which will air at 10 p.m. ET following “The Bachelorette” finale.
Previous seasons have had a clear fan-favorite choice, but this season appears to be a tough one with a couple of guys in the running:
Zak – Zak was one of the cheesiest contestants fighting for Desiree’s love, but his big heart brought him into the final four. Unfortunately, Desiree eliminated him after the hometown dates, leaving him completely broken hearted. A total sweetheart, Zak could have trash talked the brunette beauty like other contestants, but instead chose to sing her a song and wish her the best during the “Men Tell All” episode.
James – James may have been booed during the “Men Tell All” episode, thanks to his reported conversations with Mike, but he’s made it clear that he'd love to be the next “Bachelor.” But is he really looking for love? Or does he just want to be surrounded by a sea of hot young women?

Juan Pablo – Juan Pablo has a serious fan club. Thanks to the “Men Tell All” episode, it was clear that the “Bachelorette” viewers love the single dad and former soccer star … and that accent. Although he was booted from the show in Barcelona, are the “We love Juan Pablo” signs enough to give him the chance to find love as “The Bachelor?”
Chris, Brooks Or Drew – Drew took himself out of the race for Desiree’s heart in part one of “The Bachelorette” season finale. However, rumors surrounding part two of the season finale teases the return of Desiree’s frontrunner. With a winner (or no winner) still up in the air, it’s possible that one of the men could end up continuing his search for love after being dumped by Desiree.
Part two of “The Bachelorette’ finale airs on Monday, Aug. 5 at 8 p.m. The “After The Rose Special” will follow the finale, airing at 10 p.m. Who do you think will become the next “Bachelor?” Sound off in the comments section!
