ABC is apparently ready to reveal its new The Bachelor star.

"Here it is... The new Bachelor will be announced Tuesday Oct 13th live on Dancing with the Stars [on] ABC!" The Bachelor host Chris Harrison wrote a Tuesday posting on his Twitter account.

Earlier this month, Harrison used Twitter to tease that ABC was "very close" to choosing The Bachelor's fourteenth-season star.

At the time Harrison said former The Bachelorette fifth-season suitors Reid Rosenthal, Kiptyn Locke and Jake Pavelka were "obviously" all candidates to star in The Bachelor, but also added "others are in the running as well."

ABC gave The Bachelor an early renewal in April and subsequently announced its fourteenth season will premiere in midseason -- presumably early January -- and air in the Mondays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot currently held by Dancing with the Stars' ninth-season performance episodes.
