She failed to make the final rose ceremony this season, but Ashley Hebert still made her presence felt in the aftermath of The Bachelor finale last night.

Ash has been confirmed as the next star of The Bachelorette!

The announcement was made on Monday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, a few hours after the finale. The new season kicks off Monday, May 23 on ABC!

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?

Is reality TV's most famous commitment-phobe ready to get down on one knee? Will he propose to Chantal or Emily? Were The Bachelor spoilers correct?

It's all come down to one final rose tonight, and for the two women remaining, a final date to make their case in the quest to become Mrs. Brad Womack.

How will the saga end? Which amazing woman - Emily Maynard and Chantal O'Brien - will receive a Neil Lane ring and who will depart empty-handed?

THG breaks down The Bachelor season finale in a LIVE +/- recap!

Brad Womack Waits

Come on, ABC. Ditch the "most controversial season in Bachelor history" bit. We get it. You recycled Brad. Other than that? Pretty normal season! Minus 4.

Five minutes in and Brad's crying. Sorry ... bawling. Yikes. Minus 3.

Wait ... Brad is a changed man? Emily and Chantal couldn't be more different? Wild. Missed that the first four times. Also, what is Brad wearing?! Minus 5.

Chantal is bringing it tonight. She's holding nothing back. Plus 9. Saying she'll get married to Brad on the spot? Not a bluff. Talk about laying it on the line.

Oh, passing the mom test. This is going down to the wire! Plus 6.

Is your top on backwards, though, Chantal? Just askin'. Minus 2.

Of all the girls on The Bachelor this season, few probably had Ashley Hebert pegged as the next Bachelorette. Or as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.

While we're not sure what we think of her new look, which she debuted Monday night on the Women Tell All special, she sure looks the part right here.

Below are some of the photos taken during her awkward, but sizzling group date this season, during which Ashley Hebert posed for the swimsuit issue:

The pride of Madawaska, Maine, may not fancy herself a supermodel or a woman who commands the attention of 25 men, which she reportedly will be.

We could get used to the idea pretty quickly, however, and we're guessing the The Bachelorette will have no shortage of applicants with her in the lead role.

What do you think of Ashley as The Bachelorette?

Last night on The Bachelor: Women Tell All special, Ashley Hebert debuted a new look, and quite a striking one at that. But did she need a makeover?

The Maine native's appeal, on top of her brains and effervescent personality, is that classic, cute, girl-next-door look. She's approachable and sweet.

That said, why dye her hair, style it this way and have her wear so much makeup, ABC? Is this a prerequisite for her being the next Bachelorette?

Just our opinion. Tell us what you think her best look is ...

Ashley Hebert was ousted last week, leaving Emily Maynard and Chantal O'Brien to vie for the affections of Brad Womack on next week's season finale.

The traditional two-hour filler episode of The Bachelor provided no huge revelations, but there were some fireworks last night on the Women Tell All special.

The Hot Seat was aptly titled at times. We'll take what we can get.

How didit all  play out when Brad Womack's outcasts reunited for mediation sessions with host-pimp Chris Harrison? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

First, props to the great Chris. This is who you'd want in the room if you were being sued. Not as an attorney, just a debonair, calming, pimping presence. Plus 13.

We don't recognize half of these women and we watch every week. Minus 15.

One of the season's final four, the adorable mortician Shawntel N., did not say a word. Did she not wish to? Is she not interesting enough? Either way, Minus 11.

There will be a Bachelor Pad 2. It will feature Vienna Girardi. Plus 10.

Michelle Money was the unquestioned highlight of the night, using all her camera time to bash the other women, then crying when they turned it around. Wash.

Dramatically trying to catch your breath, Michelle? Acting much? Minus 4.

In light of The Bachelor spoilers, revealing not only the rumored winner of this season but the rumored Bachelorette this summer, last night was not a shock.

You didn't even need any spoilers to predict this outcome, honestly. With two of Brad Womack's remaining three women, there is serious chemistry going on.

With the third, it's like they had been trying too hard to make it work.

When you have to try that hard, it's not meant to be. So it goes. How did everything play out in South Africa last night? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

We're not usually enamored with their choice of venues, but South Africa truly is stunning, especially in HD. You really feel like you're there in person. Plus 8.

Chantal O'Brien has put on noticeable weight this season. She looks hotter! We worry she may be a stress eater, but it doesn't look bad on her at all. Plus 5.

Wisdom from Chantal: "If I'm getting engaged to someone, the thought is that I'm planning on marrying them, not getting engaged thinking that I'm going to get unengaged." Who does she think this guy is, Jason Mesnick? Minus 7.

Speaking of, happy anniversary to Jason and Molly, who honeymooned at this very South African reserve (what are the odds). Glad they're going strong. Plus 4.

Chantal was QUITE excited about getting it on. Plus 3, but ...

The fantasy suite is an outdoor treehouse? Cool as it is that such a thing exists, that sounds like every woman's nightmare, not fantasy. Fail, Chris. Minus 6.

This evening on The Bachelor, Brad Womack takes his final three potential wives - Ashley Hebert, Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard - to South Africa.

There can be only one Final Rose doled out March 14, though, which means two emotional decisions await Brad before then. Two beauties must be cut.

We now know for sure who wins that final rose - and if you've been reading The Bachelor spoilers up until now, it's actually NOT who you think.

  • Chantal O'Brien Photo
  • Emily Maynard Picture

Will Brad pick Ashley (left), Chantal (center) or Emily (right)?

Last week, we reported that one of the women above would be the next Bachelorette. This still appears to be the case. But the winner of this season?

Intelligence now suggests a different conclusion to the finale than we believed to be accurate as recently as this weekend. So who's it gonna be?

She's still alive as one of three finalists on this season of The Bachelor. But has Ashley Hebert already been tapped to star on The Bachelorette this summer?

According to Reality Steve's Twitter.

For those unfamiliar with Steve, he is the WikiLeaks of Bachelor spoilers. No one knows how this stuff gets out, but it ends up on his blog and he is good.

Ashley Hebert Picture

How on Earth was a contestant who isn't even eliminated yet named the star of the sequel? We have no idea, and we obviously can't confirm this now.

But odds are still pretty high that Ashley Hebert, the perky dental student and pride of small town Madawaska, Maine, will be the next Bachelorette.

If true, it's not shocking she didn't win The Bachelor. Brad has stronger connections with Chantal O'Brien (the rumored winner) and Emily Maynard.

What is surprising is that Emily, with stunning looks and a touching story that seemed destined to land her the starring role, is not The Bachelorette.

Just the same, Ash is no slouch herself. She's down-to-earth, smart, fun and cute as they come. What do you think of the move? Vote below ...

Would Ashley make a good Bachelorette?

Last night on The Bachelor, four lucky women brought Brad Womack home to meet their families across this nation. Three will accompany him to South Africa.

It was quite the two-hour episode, featuring a trip to the mortuary, an awkward date with Emily's daughter and plenty of slice-of-life moments for ol' Brad.

How did last night play out? Who's going on to the final destination and whose trip home turned out to be one-way? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

With no time in the mansion and no Michelle Money, that means no festering drama or cat fights this week. Plus 5. But also Minus 4, 'cause we miss you Michelle.

Minus 3 for the random, unexplained stop in New York.

Date #1 goes to Chantal O'Brien, who The Bachelor spoilers seem to think has a good chance of winning this thing. Plus 6, because you can absolutely see why.

If Brad Womack ever appears like he's natural or semi-normal, it's with Chantal. Plus 7. When they discuss moving in together, you know she has a leg up.

Three of the girls on The Bachelor posed for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue last night. As we discussed in our Bachelor recap, this was both hot and awkward.

Ashley Hebert and Chantal O'Brien certainly looked the part of SI models, but when it came time for Michelle Money's turn, she unleashed her crazy side yet again.

The bad news? Her near-topless mounting of Brad Womack drove Chantal to tears and made viewers queasy. The good news? It ultimately ran her out of town.

Here's the SI swimsuit issue shoot in its sexy, uncomfortable entirety:

While Irina Shayk took the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover, Ashley and Chantal killed it during their shoots and gave any of the supermodels a run for their ...

Sorry. As for Michelle, the unstable, sexually aggressive schtick had a good run, but officially ran its course after this. Even Brad came to his senses eventually.

Who do you want to win The Bachelor?
