As this season of Bachelor in Paradise comes closer to its end, Bachelor fans are ready to know: Who is the Bachelor 2018?

While we are still waiting for a definitive answer, we do have some hints as to who The Bachelor 2018 will be.

Everything We Know About The Bachelor 2018

Our biggest clues about the next Bachelor come from show creator Mike Fleiss, who recently tweeted his Bachelor power rankings, revealing that fans favor Peter Kraus for the leading role, followed by Wells Adams, Ben Zorn, Eric Bigger and Chase McNary.

After, he revealed that the season 22 Bachelor will not be from JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette, nixing Wells and Chase from the competition. (For anyone on Team Wells, keep in mind that his top-notch job as the bartender on Bachelor in Paradise might grant him future opportunities... or at least we hope so!)

Previously, there were fans begging for Dean Unglert to be the next Bachelor after his tough exit on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette, but Fleiss confirmed that Dean will not be the next Bachelor — that is, not for season 22.

With strong support from Bachelor Nation, it's still possible that Peter Kraus is the next Bachelor, although with the creator warning that "all options are on the table," we wouldn't be surprised if Ben Z or Eric Bigger came out ahead as the next Bachelor.
