The ninth season of The Bachelor is getting ready to start production, but who is the man of the hour?

Channel 10 and Warner Bros. Australia have apparently officially made their pick, but they’re not revealing it yet.

We’ve got a few more months left before we’ll get to know our new man unfortunately but Daniel Monaghan, Channel 10’s Head of Programming told TV Tonight that “We’re really happy with who has signed on to The Bachelor.”

“Australia will be very happy with our gentleman.”

Monaghan also confirmed that they’re breaking the cycle and the new Bachelor will NOT be a celebrity or former contestant from The Bachelorette!

“I think he’s a fantastic get for the franchise.”

Well, well, well I’m ready for any change they’re willing to give!

Here's one of our favourite moments from Robin Terry & Kip!
