They were reportedly "all over each other" the whole time.

Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Sean Lowe are the two finalists for The Bachelor, according to reports, meaning Ryan Lochte won't be rocking his Speedo on the show.

The Olympic swimming champ was actually in the running, however.

"We honestly briefly considered him," a source who works on the show revealed to E! News. "But we are going elsewhere. It's really down to Arie and Sean."

You'll still have a chance to see the athlete on TV this fall, as Lochte booked a gig on 30 Rock as well as 90210. But The Bachelor didn't say #Jeah to Ryan.

Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Sean Lowe and Jef Holm all became fan favorites during the most recent Bachelorette season, comprising Emily Maynard's final three.

Producers are still finalizing their decision, and a casting announcement is expected "soon." Roberto Martinez may or may not still be in the mix as well.

Assuming it's down to Arie and Sean, who do you think should be the next Bachelor? Vote for your favorite of the two hunks in THG's survey below!

Despite reports to the contrary, Roberto Martinez may still be in the running to be the next star of The Bachelor, according to the best source there is.

Roberto was being courted by the network several months ago, though no agreement was reached, and he was reportedly dating Kara Ramos at the time.

Many thought he was out, especially given the emergence of Sean Lowe and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. But Reality Steve says Roberto is very much in the mix.

Steve claims Roberto Martinez, who won The Bachelorette in 2010 but broke up with Ali Fedotowsky earlier this year, is now single and ready to mingle.

The network is as interested now as it was this spring.

Arie Luyendyk Jr., for his part, is interested in being the star, but perennial Bachelor spoiler Steve says he doesn't “chance in hell” of landing the gig:

”Yes, they [ABC execs] have met and interviewed both Sean and Arie, but I still haven’t heard anything solid enough that says it won’t be Roberto.”

“This is Roberto’s gig to lose, which is why they were after him hard three months ago. If he got greedy, then I bet they give it to Sean.”

Olympic champion Ryan Lochte is also rumored to be interested, though that seems like a long shot at best. The next season is set to begin filming September 15, so look for ABC to announce its star soon, probably during Bachelor Pad.

It's become all but certain that a memorable star from a previous season is chosen for the upcoming season of ABC's The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

This year gave us two very popular candidates in Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe, both of whom lost to Jef Holm in the Emily Maynard sweepstakes.

Arie and Sean would both be slam-dunk picks for the network, while Roberto Martinez - The Bachelorette winner in 2010 - is said to be out of the mix.

That leaves Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe as co-frontrunners. Which of the two would you prefer to see this winter? Vote below!
