If you were hoping to find out who is the next Bachelor at the end of The Bachelorette last night, you came away disappointed, as the torch was not passed.
In past seasons, The Bachelor or The Bachelorette season finale has also featured this big reveal on After the Final Rose. Not this time, for reasons unknown.
Chris Soules or Arie Luyendyk, Jr.: Who should be The Bachelor when the show returns in 2015? Cast your votes! View Poll »
Chris Soules, the sweet farmer from Iowa who finished third this season, attended the taping of After the Final Rose, leaving us to believe he's the guy.
He may well be, though it was announced a new Bachelor wouldn't be revealed Monday, Soules blushed and laughed nervously when the topic came up.
Fans (and fellow Bachelorette stars) also began chanting his name at one point, so it seems safe to assume he'd be a popular choice if he got the nod.
That's not a guarantee, though.
Insiders confirm that another former Bachelorette contestant, Emily Maynard's runner-up Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from the 2012 season, is in the running, too.
