“Bachelor” host Chris Harrison spoke with the press Thursday (Sept. 6) about the upcoming finale of “Bachelor Pad,” but of course, he also touched on who the newest Bachelor will be.

“I actually had dinner with Mike Fleiss last night and we were just having the same discussion [about when the announcement of the Bachelor is coming],” says Harrison. “It is still not done 100%.”

“Obviously, we’ve narrowed it down considerably to our finalists, but this goes really high up the food chain, including the president of ABC, so it’s just vetting these guys out and taking it up to all the bosses and making sure everybody signs off … I would say the decision should be imminent, any day now.”

Who do you hope it is, “Bachelor” fans? Sean? Arie? Ryan Lochte?
