On tonight’s episode of After Paradise, the next Bachelor was announced… and we’re pretty damn excited that it’s Nick Viall. We liked him on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, really liked him on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season, and he’s been one of the only voices of reason on this round of Bachelor in Paradise. In all honestly, we were hoping for this outcome the last time around—sorry, Boring Ben Higgins—and while we also had a thing for Luke Pell, we think Nick is waaaaaay more charismatic. (Not to mention, you have to admire a man who won’t stop chasing his dream, no matter what said dream entails.)

But, what do you think? Tell us in the comments.
