The pride of Madawaska, Maine, is now The Bachelorette!

Showing off her new look, the 26-year-old, who graduates from dental school in a few months, told Kimmel that she believes everything worked out for the best.

That sentiment was echoed by Chantal O'Brien, The Bachelor runner-up and likely first choice for The Bachelorette, who has since found love with Jeff Razore.

Anyway, what do you think of Ashley Hebert as The Bachelorette?
