Arie Luyendyk Jr. is out. So Chris Soules is officially in.

Luyendyk Tweeted this morning “I’m not the Bachelor,” adding “have fun on the farm people,” a clear reference to Soules, an Iowa farmer.

Soules grew into a fan favorite during the recent Bachelorette season, as Andi Dorfman sobbed when she sent him home before the fantasy suite night.

Attendees at the live Bachelorette finale this spring chanted Soules’ name when Chris Harrison asked who should be the next Bachelor, making this a pretty easy choice for producers in the end.

ABC is yet to announce a premiere date for The Bachelor, but you can always watch The Bachelor online to relive past seasons.
