    I'm very sure that your question is wrong.
    You cannot ask "I or he".
    You should ask "I/he or me/him".
    In my opinion you should go for I, he, she, you, they, etc.

    Who's next?
    He.

    Next round:
    Who's next?
    I.

    You ask for a subject.

    Maybe me is possible too, but I'm not sure.

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Cheers!

    You are right, this can be put this way:
    Please tell me, who is next?
    Here ‘who’ is used as subject of the question. So the answer should be in subject form, I or He.
