Who Will Win ‘The Bachelor’? This Shocking Theory Teases a Dramatic Finale

bachelor finale theory

We’re just days away from Matt James’s highly anticipated finale of The Bachelor. As much as we’d love to witness a jaw-dropping twist, we’re pretty confident about how it’ll all play out.

In fact, one of the strongest theories is that James won’t have a final two rose ceremony for Rachael and Michelle. The reason for this is that James will likely send home one woman before the grand finale. You know, to save her the trouble of getting dressed up only to have her heart broken on national television.

But we don’t think the breakup will take place in the same spot as the impending proposal. Instead, James will either 1. call it quits during the couple’s last date or 2. arrange an impromptu hotel room get-together ahead of the rose ceremony.

We’re leaning toward option number two. Although we don’t think he’ll make a decision on the spot, we also don’t see him stringing someone along until the very end. That’s why we think he’ll enter the final rose ceremony with only one remaining contestant, who probably has no idea that her competition has already been sent home. (#Savage)

As for who will secure James’s final rose, we are placing our money on Rachael. (No offense, Michelle.) Not only was she named the favorite by Reality Steve, but she also created a Spotify playlist that has been frequented by James over the past few months.

The two-hour Bachelor finale will air on Monday, March 15, followed by the After the Final Rose special.
