Nope, it's not Roberto Martinez, Ali Fedotowsky's ex, as had been widely rumored.
And no, it's not Olympian Ryan Lochte.
And it's not a man of color.
It's Sean Lowe, ABC has announced. (Reality Steve reported it Monday and Chris Harrison let it slip at the Emmys on Sunday.)
You probably remember seeing Sean, 28, chasing Emily Maynard through the streets of Prague on last season's Bachelorette, yelling "Emily!" because he just had to see her in a secret rendezvous that made her face hurt because she was smiling so much about it.
The insurance agent from Dallas won the hearts of fans with his big guy-country boy sweetness that took him down to the final three.
But in July, after Lowe had been sent packing, he sounded a bit reluctant about the idea of becoming the next Bachelor. "It would be a difficult decision if they were to ask me, only because it was so emotionally taxing, and you know, I don't know if I could go through that again."
He added, "I had my heart broken there at the end" by Emily as she narrowed down to her two final guys -- Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Jef Holm, to whom she's now engaged.
But time heals all wounds.
And Lowe was already looking ahead, because he added, "You know, I believe in the process, and ultimately, if I were to find my wife, it would certainly all be worth it."
Some facts about Lowe, courtesy of ABC:
He's 6'3" and went to Kansas State University on a full football scholarship. As a linebacker, he was part of the 2003 Big 12 Conference Championship Team.
He has a Bachelor of Science degree in social science.
He has moved on from the insurance industry to start a new enterprise -- owning and running an upscale, custom furniture business.
Among his hobbies and interests are camping, wake boarding, dancing, outdoor activities, attending concerts and doing just about anything with his two dogs, Lola and Ellie.
Production is already underway for the 17th season of the reality dating show, which will begin airing in January. ABC has already put up the bios of 24 of the women who will be vying for Sean's heart.
