The Bachelorette 2018: Meet the Contenders!

by at .  Updated at .

Who... will...!?

This is the question on the minds of all ABC viewers at the moment, as we've reached the end of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Bachelor season, which means we're about to embark on a new Bachelorette season.

Will the star of the latter in 2018 be a woman we've met previously on this network? A woman Arie scorned? A fresh face entirely?

Scroll down to meet the contenders and then let us know who YOU want to see as The Bachelorette...

1. All About Arie... Sort Of

All About Arie... Sort Of
As previously reported, Arie proposes on The Bachelor finale... only to then dump his fiancee for his runner-up. How scandalous!


Based on The Bachelor spoilers we've gathered, Arie will hand his final rose to Becca Kufrin. But will he end up with her?

3. In a Word?

In a Word?
No, Arie will dump Becca after just a few weeks, making her our top contender to be The Bachelorette. Makes for a pretty endearing backstory, right?

4. What About Lauren Burnham?

What About Lauren Burnham?
She'll finish second on the finale, according to various reports, but will actually win Arie's heart in the end... in controversial, possibly cheating fashion. So we can remove her name from The Bachelorette list.

5. Aren't There Other Possibilities?

Aren't There Other Possibilities?
Absolutely. Tia Booth, for example, finished fourth on Arie's season, but won over many viewers in the process.

6. And Kendall Long?

And Kendall Long?
She was sent packing after a night in the Fantasy Suite with Arie, although she almost giggled when he dumped her. Perhaps because she knew something better was on the way?

7. Bekah Martinez?

Bekah Martinez?
Chin up, Bekah! You may have looked sullen here upon being dumped by Arie, but if executives know what is good for them, they'll just go ahead and give you your own show.

8. Remember Seinne Fleming?

Remember Seinne Fleming?
This commercial real estate manager and Yale graduate didn't receive a rose after her hometown date, but seemed too good for Arie anyway.

9. A Couple Darkhorses...

A Couple Darkhorses...
Arie was not fresh off a Bachelorette dumping when he was chosen, so what about Kristina Schulman? The Russian native grew into a viewer favorite after she was left heartbroken by two-timing Dean Unglert on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise.

10. Fourth Time is the Charm?

Fourth Time is the Charm?
Yes, Amanda Stanton has tried to find love on three previous occasions via ABC reality shows. But that didn't stop the network from making Nick Viall The Bachelor, right?

11. Corinne Olympios!

Corinne Olympios!
Yes, THAT Corinne Olympios, the same woman whose drunken sexual antics almost caused Bachelor in Paradise to get canceled. Don't tell us you wouldn't watch a season with her at the helm. Because you would.

12. Andi Dorfman?

Andi Dorfman?
Andi Dorfman wrote a book all about her awful relationship with Josh Murray. She doesn't mind being in the spotlight and she'd make for an awfully outspoken Bachelorette.

13. Vanessa Grimaldi?

Vanessa Grimaldi?
Another semi-oldie, but very goodie. She was dumped by Nick Viall, so she fits the qualification of someone scorned by the show... yet ready to give the show another shot.

14. Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian
This has been (jokingly) rumored for years now, but why should it be a joke? You want high ratings, ABC? You want a beautiful Bachelorette? You want someone men will openly fight over? You want Kourtney Kardashian.

15. So... Who Will It Be?

So... Who Will It Be?
The Bachelorette will be announced during the After the Final Rose special on ABC Tuesday, March 6, at 8 p.m. EST. Exciting stuff!
