The Bachelor isn’t even over yet and the poor souls at ABC are already making plans to film The Bachelorette. Production is set to begin this March and a location (Jasper Lodge in Alberta, Canada!) has already been booked. The only thing missing? An actual Bachelorette, lolz.
ABC will likely announce their leading lady during After the Final Rose (though this season won’t be live, so they’ll have to worry about leaks) or on Good Morning America. Either way, they need to pick someone soon and are almost definitely already deeeeep in the casting process.
There are no official spoilers yet about who our next Bachelorette is, but there’s basically a 10/10 chance it’s going to be one of the following five women: Kelley Flanagan, Abigail Heringer, Michelle Young, Katie Thurston, or Bri Springs. How do we know? A combination of spoilers, logic, sleuthing, and past Bachelorette trends.
