Since the season finale of The Bachelorette fans have been waiting to hear the major news...who is the next Bachelor?!

According to Us Weekly, multiple sources confirmed that ABC has finally picked their man! The insiders explained that the new leading star is from Becca Kufrin's season and it wasn't an easy decision to make because there were "a lot of options."

Throughout the season Jason became a fan favorite to watch. After he was eliminated by Becca, fans have been hoping that he would be the next leading man. “He’s shown he would be a different type of Bachelor and that would be a good thing,” a source explained to the site. Blake was the runner up from Becca's season and was known for being very “sweet and sensitive." As for Colton, the former NFL star voiced that if he was chosen to pass out the roses, he "would love" the opportunity. “I know that this show can work. I’ve seen it with Garrett Yrigoyen and Becca. I know what it did for me as a person and how it helped me grow into the man I am today. I would love the opportunity if I’m single after Paradise,” he told Us in early August.
