“The Bachelor” Season 20 still has four women in the running, but executive producer Mike Fleiss is already thinking about the future. On Tuesday the EP of ABC’s hit reality show took to Twitter to ask fans who they want to see as the next star of “The Bachelorette.”
“Gotta make a decision,” he tweeted. “Who should be the next ‘Bachelorette’???”
Amanda, Caila, JoJo and Lauren B. are still fighting for star Ben Higgins’ heart. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from casting their votes for some of the women still in the competition. A name that keeps popping up is JoJo.
JoJo Fletcher, whose real name is Joelle, is a 24-year-old real estate developer from Dallas. Although relatively quiet throughout Season 20, she has become known for her easygoing behavior. She’s been a rock for Ben, making sure to ask about his well-being throughout the whole process and offering insight into why some of the women have been upset or acting weird around him.
For the time being, JoJo is still a front-runner in the competition. However, a preview of episode 8 reveals that her hometown visit could shake up her relationship with Ben. The promo video teases her brothers confronting Ben in an ugly blowout that results in tears.
But JoJo’s not the only one that the “Bachelor” fan base is rooting for. Becca Tilley, who was just eliminated in episode 7 on Monday night, is also a name that’s being thrown around a lot.
Becca first made her appearance on “The Bachelor” during Season 19 with Chris Soules. The 26-year-old chiropractic assistant from San Diego made a splash as Chris’ shy (and virgin) runner-up. She returned this year for a chance to date Ben Higgins. However, she ended up getting her heart broken this week when Ben admitted he was uncertain about their relationship.
Becca left in tears, but still managed to say only nice words about the bachelor on Twitter.
Of course, fans of the series will have to wait until the current season of “The Bachelor” is over before the network makes the exciting announcement. While you wait, cast your vote for which contestant you want to see find love on “The Bachelorette.”
