Will Eric Bigger Be The Bachelor 2018?

It's almost time for the biggest announcement of the year! As we approach the Bachelor in Paradise finale, we know the beginning of filming for the next season of The Bachelor is near, and Bachelor Nation is dying to know: Is Eric Bigger The Bachelor 2018?

While we are still waiting for the official announcement from ABC, here's what we know about the chances that Eric will be our leading man for The Bachelor season 22.

Is Eric Bigger The Next Bachelor?

The chances that Eric will be the next Bachelor didn't seem particularly high if we consider Bachelor Nation's calls for Peter Kraus to take on the leading role. However, the show's creator, Mike Fleiss, tweeted out the latest power rankings for the top five contenders, and Eric did make the list, albeit with a fourth place finish after peaking at number two just days earlier.

Of course, since Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette ended, the question on everyone's mind — including host Chris Harrison — is whether Eric is ready to fall in love and get married.

And while Eric told People that he hasn't been approached to be the next Bachelor, he does have a game plan should the opportunity arise. "I would probably think about some of the things I went through, but I know how to get myself to open up, and if it's the moment to find love, I'll let it happen."

Although the announcement is still pending, we do know one thing: We wouldn't object to a Bachelor season surrounding Eric.
