We’re just hours away from finding out why Colton Underwood hops the fence on The Bachelor, but the 26-year-old virgin can’t stop thinking about another burning question: Who will be the next Bachelorette?
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Underwood discussed the highly anticipated decision and revealed that he has no say in the matter. Womp, womp.
“In regards to the decision of picking the next Bachelorette, I wish the Bachelor and the Bachelorette had a say in that…they don’t, so I don’t know,” he said.
Underwood went on to discuss Caelynn, who was eliminated after the hometown dates in episode eight.
“I think there’s multiple women from my season that would make great Bachelorettes, whether it’s Caelynn or any… I don’t know, there’s a few women,” he continued. “So yeah, I just want to see all of them happy, so it’s hard to just pick one.”
The question of who the next Bachelorette will be has been weighing on our mind, considering the announcement usually coincides with the After the Final Rose special.
We previously predicted the frontrunners, including Caelynn, Tia, Danielle Maltby and even Khloé Kardashian. Although Underwood confirmed that “the Kardashians make great television,” our money is on Caelynn…or one of Underwood’s remaining contestants: Cassie, Hannah G. and Tayshia.
So, who will star in season 15 of The Bachelorette? And how long do we have to wait for said announcement? Only time will tell.
The Bachelor returns to ABC tonight at 8 p.m., followed by The Women Tell All special tomorrow, March 5, at 8 p.m.
