(NEW YORK) — The new Bachelor is…Nick Viall.
ABC made the announcement on Tuesday night after Bachelor in Paradise, revealing that Viall would be the next star looking for a shot at love. He will get to hand out his roses in season 21.
Fans knew the big news was coming earlier today, when the show tweeted out a very cryptic, exciting message.
“Who will it be? The wait is over! #TheBachelor will be revealed on #AfterParadise TONIGHT at 9|8c on ABC!” the tweet read, along with a 5-second clip.
The two-time runner up follows in the footsteps of Ben Higgins, who chose Lauren Bushnell this past March. The duo are now engaged to be married.
The Bachelor returns to ABC in January.
