While “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” aired on ABC earlier this week, there was no announcement as to who the next star of “The Bachelor” would be. While that may sound odd, it’s surprisingly common for the franchise to wait on announcing their next leading man. Typically, they do it later in the summer, and we specifically imagine that the announcement will be made at some point during “Bachelor in Paradise” to get the show a little bit of a ratings bump.
Still, it seems like a clue may be coming tonight on another network — and another show for that matter. In a post on Twitter, “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss teased that “There’s a clue as to who will be our new Bachelor on tonite’s premiere of our new show
#LoveAtFirstKiss on TLC!!!” As for what sort of clue that is, it remains to be seen. Maybe it’s the sort of thing that you have to watch intently for and you will otherwise miss. “Love at First Kiss,” which you can see a full preview for below, airs at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time. The title is largely self-explanatory as to what you can expect; people see if they can find love based on a kiss.
We would certainly be shocked if ABC allowed the full reveal to take place on another network, so don’t expect a huge official announcement. As of right now, Luke Pell and Chase McNary remain the clear favorites, with us leaning towards the latter as a favorite.
As soon as something is official, we will let you know; for now, head over here to get some other news regarding another ABC reality show in “Bachelor in Paradise,” which certainly got off to its own crazy premiere earlier this week.
