Who is the Next Bachelor?

Who will be the next ABC Bachelor? Chris Harrison hints that the official announcement will be coming soon (follow Chris Harrison and Live Bachelor for daily updates).  In this NEW interview with Chris Harrison, he talks about the new season of The Bachelor.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’ve been very clear that you won’t be the next Bachelor, but can you give us any hints as to who might be? Michael Stagliano is back on the market…
CHRIS HARRISON: I can assure you Michael Stagliano will not be the Bachelor. He was never up for it. But you do have the usual suspects that we’ve been talking about all along. Obviously Arie (who has since confirmed he is not the next Bachelor) and Sean [from Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette] are both frontrunners. They have been since we started this discussion, and they probably still are in the mix. At this point, it goes pretty far up the food chain, up to Paul Lee, the president of ABC. We go in and make presentations. A lot goes into it that people don’t know as far as making that final decision and who makes the best television. At the end of that day, that what we’re doing — we’re creating a show — and we want someone very sincere. We’ve been doing this for over a decade, and we know what works, and we know what’s going to make good television. It’s not such an easy [choice], like, “Oh, he’s cute, that’d be good.” We do take into consideration what the fans want and who they like, but at the same time we also have to make a television show and know what works. It’s not always the same exact thing.
