Oh, Mike Fleiss, why must you tease us like this?
The Bachelor boss, who previously promised to announce the next Bachelor on his Twitter account the day before, took to the social media site on Friday to torture us about the big reveal.
"Trying to decide when to make the official #TheBachelor announcement… Either some time after the Olympiad, or when I hit 100k followers," he tweeted Friday morning.

“#BachelorNation will be happy with the announcement!!! #TheBachelor,” he followed up with moments later.
"Here's a clue… He's very handsome! And he likes sunrises more than sunsets," he concluded, before promising, "A new clue to who will be your next Bachelor will be revealed each day until the official announcement is made... Who will it be?"

Fleiss later gifted his growing followers with another clue: our new Bachelor "makes a mean tuna casserole."
While we wait for the Internet to catch up and give in to Fleiss' threats, for now we're we are left with speculation -- and this old Instagram from Bachelor contender Luke Pell.
"#mondaymorning #nofilterDAL↗️BNA 🌅 #sunrise," he simply captioned a photo of a… SUNRISE.
Though it might be silly to base the next Bachelor announcement off just one Instagram shot from seven months ago, ET caught up with the two men in question, Pell and Chase McNary, last month at The Bachelorette's Men Tell All taping, where they both revealed they were in talks with producers to become the next Bachelor.
While neither dished on whether they preferred sunrises to sunsets, or their feelings on tuna casseroles, they did divulge their thoughts on the opportunity.
"The discussions are there, but I don't know -- there's a lot of weight there," McNary stated, admitting he had reservations in taking on the coveted role. "There [are] a lot of expectations and I'm not scared of it… but I definitely want to make the smart decision and the right decision before I totally accept that position."
"I wasn't exactly the most open guy about my feelings, and going into being the Bachelor… that's something I would definitely have to work on," he added.
Pell seemed much more up for the job. "It's a possibility. I definitely wouldn't pass on it!" he said, adding that he hopes we would be a "fun Bachelor." "That's the part of me [people] didn't get to see on the show. A lot of my stories are so intense and deep about my military background… but I love to have fun."
