Why Hasn't the Next Bachelor Been Announced?

Why the New Bachelor Hasn't Been Announced Yet

It's become somewhat of a tradition for host Chris Harrison to announce the next Bachelor or Bachelorette during each season's "After the Rose" special, but this week, the subject was completely avoided. Andi gave out her final rose on The Bachelorette, there was some discussion, and then the show ended. Thankfully, Harrison has addressed in his blog for Entertainment Weekly why he didn't name any names. Good news: the show hasn't been canceled. Here's the reason behind this madness:

"More than a few of you tweeted me last night reminding me that I forgot to announce who the new Bachelor is. Believe it or not I didn't forget to announce something that big. The truth is we haven't decided 100 percent on whom that is yet. Obviously we take this decision very seriously and a lot goes into this process. There are endless discussions and heated debates on which direction to go and what to do. We are very close to making that decision, but the only big mistake we could really make is to rush this and try to get it done in time for last night's show. I know you're all anxious, and I wish I could tell you exactly when we'll make that announcement, but I just can't because the decision hasn't been made. I do love reading the 'stories' that claim one thing or another but I am a part of these heated debates, and I can promise you one took place last night after the show, so it's still not a done deal."
