bachelorette men tell all juan pablo zak Who is the next 'Bachelor'? Juan Pablo Galavis or Zak Waddell?One of the best parts of the “After the Final Rose” specials is that the “Bachelor” franchise usually reveals the next victim contestant for the new season and this time was no exception.

Chris Harrison
revealed to fans during Desiree Hartsock‘s “Bachelorette” finale that Juan Pablo Galavis is the next “Bachelor,” to which the audience says — “WOOOOOOO!” No kidding, the studio audience went absolutely bonkers at the news.

We’ll be honest — we enjoyed Juan Pablo, but we also were big fans of Zak W. and we wish they could be co-“Bachelors.”

It’s pretty remarkable that a guy was named the “Bachelor” without even having a solo date on “The Bachelorette.” Seriously, Juan Pablo being named “Bachelor” is like when Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor for “Silence of the Lambs” (look it up, he had like 16 minutes of screentime that entire movie).

We can’t wait. “The Bachelor” premieres in January 2014.
