One tweet has Bachelor Nation out for blood

It was the tweet heard 'round the world — or at least 'round Bachelor Nation. Was it just a hacked Twitter account? Or actually a clue that Nick Viall could return for yet another stint as the Bachelor?

As rumors are flying and fans are speculating about who the next Bachelor could be, series creator Mike Fleiss appeared to post a tweet that could have been a hint — only what he was allegedly hinting at sure wasn't what fans of the show wanted to hear.

That's right. Fleiss tweeted, "Now It's Common Knowledge After Grief All Is Nothing." It sounds like a phrase of nonsense until you consider the capitalized first letters of each word... and how they spell "NICK AGAIN."

Fleiss has since deleted the tweet and claimed his account was hacked, but that hasn't stopped members of Bachelor Nation from losing their minds just a little bit over the remote possibility that one of the most hated Bachelors of all time could be back for a fifth attempt at reality TV love.

Viall himself has taken to Twitter to deny the rumor.

But Viall denied that he was going on Paradise and denied that he was going to be the Bachelor, and both of those things happened, so forgive us for not playing fast and loose with our trust in him this time.

There is one other (albeit slim) possibility. Fleiss later tweeted a throwback clip featuring another Nick — the one from JoJo's season, who is currently also appearing on Paradise.

But would he be a better choice than one of the fan-favorite runners-up from Rachel Lindsay's season? Ugh, Fleiss, stop playing with our emotions and just tell us who the next Bachelor is already.
