Did Arie Luyendyk, Jr. just reveal the new Bachelor?

Sorry, future Bachelor contestants: Arie Luyendyk, Jr. will not be next season’s star.

The season eight Bachelorette contestant was rumored to be the title Bachelor next season, but Luyendyk refuted those rumors Monday when he tweeted, “I’m not the Bachelor, have fun on the farm people.” The farm reference makes a strong case that Chris Soules, who failed to receive Andi Dorfman’s final rose last season of The Bachelorette and was known for his occupation as a farmer, will be the next Bachelor.

Next season’s Bachelor will be announced on Good Morning America Wednesday at 7 a.m. ET.
