Who Will Be the Next 'Bachelorette' 2018? See Who's in the Running...


The premiere of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor hasn't even aired yet, but we're already daydreaming about the next season of The Bachelorette — and wondering which fan favorite will become the leading lady! Even though we'll be waiting a looong time for this announcement, it can't hurt to start the conversation. Are you listening, ABC? Here's who we think would make a great fit as the next Bachelorette in 2018.

Kristina Schulman

The Russian native quickly became a fan favorite after she was heartbroken by two-timing Dean Unglert during Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise. Though sources say Dean attempted to win Kristina back after dumping her for Danielle Lombard, we're hoping she doesn't fall for it! She's got beauty and brains, and would make a perfect Bachelorette!

Amanda Stanton

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! If Amanda became the next Bachelorette, that would mark her fourth attempt to find love on a Bachelor show. But hey, if Nick Viall can do it, why can't she? While we'd love to see Amanda get the gig, we wouldn't blame the mother-of-two if she steered clear of reality TV dating going forward as she hasn't exactly had the best luck. We thought her messy breakup with Josh Murray was dramatic — but that was until we saw the epic Twitter feud that exploded between her and Robby Hayes.

Ashley Iaconetti

The 29-year-old has done a great job at staying in the public eye since her initial quest for love with Bachelor Chris Soules back in 2015. We later watched her struggle with relationships during Season 2 and 3 of Bachelor in Paradise, but nothing ever worked out long term. Even though she has a good sense of humor when it comes to how clueless she is about the opposite sex (she hosts her own podcast cleverly titled, I Don't Get It), it's about time this brunette beauty finds the right guy.

Corinne Olympios

The outspoken blonde was caught off guard when she was asked during an interview if she'd ever consider being The Bachelorette back in August. "Am I allowed to answer this?" she awkwardly asked someone off-camera, leading fans to believe she could be a potential candidate. If Corinne ended up as the next season's lead, viewers would definitely be in for a bumpy ride. Her wild and crazy hookup with Demario Jackson during Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise lead to the show being shut down for a brief period of time in June. Now that the controversy is behind her, the reality star said that she's looking forward to getting back to her normal life. That normal life includes dating, as Corn recently confirmed that she's seeing someone special, but it's not too serious just yet. Single or not, a Bachelorette season with her as the lead would surely make for quality TV!

Vanessa Grimaldi

Okay, so she may be a bit fresh off her breakup from Nick Viall, but we can only imagine the kinds of fights the men would get into if Vanessa was the season's lead. She's beautiful, sweet, the whole damn package.

"It's okay to feel broken. It's okay to cry. It's okay to lean on a friend. In the end, it will always be okay,"she wrote on Instagram back in August after she and the 36-year-old announced their split. Perhaps 25 guys vying for her attention would help her get over her heartbreak?

Andi Dorfman

Andi definitely deserves a second shot at love considering her first time around as The Bachelorette resulted in a nine-month nightmare with notorious bad boy Josh Murray. In her tell-all book, It's Not Okay, Andi describes their relationship as "volatile and f--ked up." Josh, naturally, claims Andi's book is "fictional." Sounds like someone needs a do-over!

Courtney Robertson

She may have ruffled a few feathers when competing for — and winning — Ben Flajnik's heart in Season 16 of The Bachelor, but she certainly won America over when she released her juicier-than-ever tell-all book I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain. In the book, she goes into great detail about her steamy sex life with the upcoming Bachelor Arie, and explains how she truly did have feelings for him at one point.

When the news broke that Arie landed the gig, Court tweeted, "Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even #thebachelor." Someone get this brokenhearted girl on the phone with Chris Harrison, ASAP!
