While Bachelor Nation will have to wait a few more weeks until the network formally announces who will follow in Nick Viall's footsteps, former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky is already predicting early favorite Dean Unglert will be the one handing out roses.
"I think Dean will be the next Bachelor," Ali told Life & Style exclusively while promoting goodnessKNOWS snack squares on International Yoga Day. "He might not be the next Bachelor because he's younger, I think there's a chance of that..."
She continued, "I think Peter would make a really great Bachelor, but he could end up with Rachel. At first, I thought Eric would make a great Bachelor... but I think that his temper got the best of him recently so I don't think that Warner Bros. would put him in the Bachelor seat because of that."
However, despite her concerns about Dean only being 25 years old, Ali is rooting for him.
"I would say my top pick is probably Dean," she added. "Here's the thing. The producers talk to the contestants so much that they know whether or not they're mentally ready to settle down so if Dean is, I think he'll be the one."
Fans of the reality dating competition also seem to be smitten by the blue-eyed startup recruiter, who recently opened up about his mother's death from breast cancer on his first one-on-one date with Rachel.
"1/2 of me wants @deanunglert to win #TheBachelorette and 1/2 of me wants him to be the new #Bachelor," one fan tweeted while another added, "If Dean is the next _Bachelor, sign me up!"
