Only one woman will have her second chance to find love in the next season of “The Bachelorette.” Who will be the leading lady? Sources are saying the producers are leaning toward Caila, but we still want to consider our options. No matter what, we know she’ll get a great group of foxy men to date — including Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother to NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Here, let’s weigh the pros and cons of Ben’s final four, all of whom could be the next “Bachelorette.”
Amanda Stanton, 25, Esthetician, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
Pro: She’s super sweet and has been a fan favorite.
Con: The single mom story line has already been done with Emily Maynard in Season 8.
Pro: She was one of the most genuine contestants who really did want to find love. And all the other women seemed to like her, too.
Con: She’d have a hard time leaving her daughters again, and viewers might not be receptive to seeing her leave her kids to film a reality TV show again.
Caila Quinn, 24, Software Sales Rep., Hudson, Ohio
Pro: Producers have said the next bachelorette probably won’t be white. Caila is half Filipino, which certainly bodes well for her being a true front-runner for the role.
Con: Fans didn’t really love her as much as other contestants, and many feel she’s not as genuine.
Pro: She was lucky number three. With the exception of Trista Rehn in Season 1 and Emily Maynard in Season 8, every other Bachelorette was the second runner-up in “The Bachelor.” It isn’t likely producers will mess with this proven format.
Con: She’s complicated. In one conversation with Ben, she said she didn’t know if she could love him and she feared that she’d break his heart. That tune has changed, as in a recent interview, she said, “I’m really happy for JoJo and Lauren. They fell hard for Ben and he opened up with them. I want to find someone who feels that passionately about me that he can’t help but tell me how he feels. That will happen one day!”
Pro: She used “The Bachelor” as her audition to be “The Bachelorette.” Didn’t you notice those shots of her pensively looking at nothing combined with her voice-overs? She knows what she’s doing.
JoJo Fletcher, 24, Real Estate Developer, Dallas, TX
Pro: She’s a fan favorite.
Con: Producers tend to worry that there isn’t enough time after the recent Bachelor heartbreak for the first runner-up to fully “move on” and be ready for this second chance at love. It only happened with Trista, and her season aired nine months after “The Bachelor” ended.
Pro: She is half-Persian, so she could also be considered the first not white “Bachelorette.”
Con: Her brothers are a bit too overprotective, and it’s pretty creepy. Her potential suitors would have a difficult time getting their support should one propose at the end.
Lauren Bushnell, 25, Flight Attendant, Marina Del Rey, California
Pro: She loves love. In her “Bachelor” profile, she said, “I wear my heart on my sleeve. I communicate through verbal and physical cues. When I love someone, there is never a question about how much because I will constantly show you and tell.”
Con: She’s not very dramatic. The most dramatic thing that happened to her was Leah lying about her behavior toward Ben and toward the other women. And that was the only time we got an ugly-cry out of LoLo!
Pro: She has the most social media followers on Twitter and Instagram out of the final four women.
Con: She’s the front-runner to be engaged to Ben — they both said, “I love you” in last week’s episode. Only six days to go to prove that prediction right or wrong!
