Who Will Be the Star of the Next ‘Bachelorette’? Our Top Predictions

Colton Underwood is just days away from hopping the fence on The Bachelor, and while we could easily go on and on about finale theories, we can’t stop thinking about what’s to come. In particular, who will be the next Bachelorette?

With Underwood’s finale right around the corner, this question has been weighing on our mind, considering the announcement usually—we repeat, usually—correlates with the After the Final Rose special.

Not only are there multiple frontrunners for the highly coveted role, but there’s also the possibility of a Kardashian cameo, and no, we’re not kidding. Here are our top picks for next season of The Bachelorette.

Cassie, Hannah G. Or Tayshia

The most obvious options would be one of Underwood’s final three contestants: Cassie, Hannah G. or Tayshia. While the winner will obviously be excluded from the running, we wouldn’t be surprised if the creators stick with what they know.

Since Caelynn was eliminated in this week’s episode, many believe she’s already being considered for the position. America first fell in love with the beauty queen when she handled Hannah B.’s accusations like a total pro in episode three.

Khloé Kardashian

Rumors started swirling last week when series creator Mike Fleiss revealed in a now-deleted tweet that she’s “in contention” for the highly coveted role. Although she has since denied the gossip, we wouldn’t be surprised if ABC ventured outside of Bachelor Nation.

Danielle Maltby

Sure, she appeared on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, but fans have been rooting for her ever since she was dumped by former Big Brother star Paulie Calafiore. Besides, if Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s surprise anointment is any indication, we wouldn’t put it past the creators to choose a fan favorite.

Just because she previously dated Underwood doesn’t mean she can’t fill the position…right?

The Bachelor returns to ABC next Monday, March 4, followed by The Women Tell All on Tuesday, March 5.
