If nothing else, the selection of Arie Luyendyk Jr. to play the leading man on The Bachelor shows that anyone can be in that role.

Seriously, anyone. But who will fill Rachel Lindsay’s shoes in the fourteenth season of The Bachelorette tentatively set for May?

Obviously, we don’t expect to know right away.

And there’s always a chance that viable contenders, or even one consensus choice, will emerge from Arie’s season of The Bachelor.

That doesn’t mean that we can’t consider the possibilities, though, because Bachelor Nation has some very strong candidates already.

After all, if Arie was still on producers’ radar FIVE YEARS after he finished second on Emily Maynard’s season, you just never know.

Some of these women are already beloved by Bachelor Nation. Others are … we don’t want to say reviled, but not quite as beloved.

So let’s look at who it might be! And hope that we’re not disqualifying all of these ladies just by mentioning their names!
