Attention single people of the world and fans of Bachelor Nation: If you're dying for your own Sean Lowe to ride away with on an elephant, Chris Harrison is coming to your rescue!

The Bachelor host and Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss just launched a new dating app today called At First Sight that they believe will change the world of online dating.

"It's really going to be revolutionary," Harrison tells E! News exclusively. "It's a fun, Instagram-slash-Twitter-slash-Vine version of a dating site. We do it how we cast the show. We do video profiles in which you are answering questions that a casting director from The Bachelor would ask you. You will see the videos and see if there's chemistry. You can communicate with them and see more videos."

The best part? "It basically takes away the first two or three awkward coffee dates of getting to know somebody." (Bonus best part: You can double check you don't have weird schmutz in your teeth before sending the video!)

Harrison, who recently re-entered the dating game himself, says the site is a long time coming and a passion project for him and Fleiss. "Looking at dating sites you can see how horribly antiquated and outdated and sad it is!" Harrison tells E! News. "I know there are some successful ones, but I can't fathom how they are. Looking at some Photoshopped picture and a bio and then trusting some psych analysis to figure out if you're compatible?! We would never cast the show that way! So why would you go on a date that way?"

Harrison and Bachelor producers are just now starting to search for the next Bachelor and Harrison tells us they are certainly open to someone new. "It's being decided now. We don't start shooting until September so we have tons of time. We'll wait and see who people respond to [from the current Bachelorette season], and they're running people up the totem pole now because we know what's happened. But we actually would love to find someone new. If there were someone worthy and new."

Maybe they'll find him through At First Sight? Could happen!

Atfirstsight.com is now live and a demo can be seen on You Tube.
