And the next ‘Bachelor’ is…who knows! Chris Harrison always reveals the next ‘Bachelor’ on ‘After The Final Rose’, but on July 28, it appeared that he forgot, and fans are freaking out!
Chris Harrison Does Not Announce The Next ‘Bachelor’
We’re really excited that Andi and Josh are engaged and all, and it was really heartbreaking watching Nick break down next to Andi, but we were really excited to learn who will be the next Bachelor. And we never did.
Earlier during the three-hour finale event, Chris was asked by Bachelor In Paradise cast member Michelle Money in the audience who would be the next Bachelor, and Chris said, “The new Bachelor is going to be named later.”
Well, he never did, and fans are freaking out!

I was so caught up that Nick announced his sex life on live television that I just realized we didn’t even find out who the next Bachelor is

Why Wasn’t The Next ‘Bachelor’ Announced?
In all fairness, it’s highly doubtful that Chris Harrison blatantly forgot to announce the next Bachelor — let’s be honest, they guy is a pro and has been hosting for a zillion years. He knows how this goes.
So why didn’t they announce the next lucky guy? Perhaps ABC wants to pull in viewers to Bachelor In Paradise (premiering Monday, August 4). Now that fans are freaking out, they’re more likely to tune into next week’s new series in hopes of The Bachelor being revealed.
Another possibility? Maybe they haven’t chosen the next guy yet! HollywoodLife.com reported who the next Bachelor is, but he could have backed out or the network could be having second thoughts.
For all we know, maybe Grumpy Cat took up all the airtime and Chris Harrison ran out of time to make the big reveal. (Do not forget to consider Nick Viall‘s long, heartbreaking sit-down, sex life monologue.)
HollywoodLifers, do you think that Chris forgot to make the announcement or do you think they are purposefully waiting to reveal the next guy? Drop a comment and let us know who should be the next Bachelor!
