The 32-year-old former soccer player was selected as the next “Bachelor” for the show’s upcoming 18th season, and ladies all over the world are already swooning.

Galavis explained that while he was disappointed to get the boot from Desiree Hartsock, he plans on picking the perfect partner for himself and his four-year-old daughter.
