'The Bachelorette:' Who Will Get the Final Rose? Here Are Our Predictions

We’re down to six guys, and Becca means business. She hasn’t been shy about cutting guys before the rose ceremony, and canceling cocktail parties when she already knows who to send home. So, let’s cut to the chase: Who’s going to win this whole thing? 

I really can’t see Leo or Colton making it to the top three. Leo has major untapped potential, but it seems his relationship with Becca just started––he’s in the same place with her as other guys were during the second week. Maybe if Becca had picked him for a one-on-one earlier and taken him on a date to the hair salon, he would be rock-solid top three material.  

Colton, on the other hand, is prime Bachelor franchise material: former pro-football player with a ton of time on his hands, generically good-looking, sort of problematic—I mean, are we going to totally forget the fact that he was hooking up with Tia (Becca’s friend and former Bachelor contestant) literally up until he started filming the show with Becca? After what happened with Arie, I don’t think Becca wants to take a chance with him getting back with Tia if she ends up choosing him. Yikes. Imagine the tweets. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, to see Colton as next season’s Bachelor.  

That leaves us with Garrett, Blake, Jason, and Wills. As much as Becca and Wills bonded over their mutual Harry Potter obsessions, I’m getting really strong friend zone vibes between them. Like, I’m sure Becca will be totally down to go see the inevitable 2035 Harry Potter remake with Wills, as long as she can take her husband and kids with her, too. What a fun outing!

So, it looks like Garrett, Jason, and Blake are all contenders. Let’s take a closer look at their time on the show up until this point and see who will be listening to Becca lament about Arie for the next 40 years.  

Jason 

Full disclosure: I have no idea why this guy is in the top three. It’s just process of elimination, you know? He seems like the sort of guy who would try to use LinkedIn as a dating app, and then totally deny it. Oh, and there’s the whole entire lack of personality thing, not that Becca’s fake-quirky “I’m not like other girls” thing is much better. 

Blake

Becca chose Blake for the very first one-on-one date: the one that was all about Arie. Still, he stuck around, and wasn’t freaked out by her eagerness to take a sledgehammer to a couch just because her ex had sat on it. Blake just seems, like, super chill. He’s managed to stay out of the other guys’ childish drama all season, and even though he can sometimes seem sort of nonchalant about Becca, it’s actually really refreshing. I would pick a guy like Blake over someone desperate and obsessive like Lincoln or Chris any day. Also, he’s the cutest—in case you forgot. 

Garrett 

TBH, I haven’t been Garrett's biggest fan ever since he drove up in that minivan stocked with all the parenting essentials, but Becca seemed to love it, since she gave him the first impression rose that night. And remember those problematic Instagram likes? It’s likely he was so quick to apologize since having the winner of The Bachelorette be problematic is more of a PR disaster than having just another contestant on the show do the same thing. The last three bachelorettes—Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jojo Fletcher, and Rachel Lindsay—all ended up with the guys they gave that telling first impression rose to, and it doesn’t seem like Becca has plans to break tradition.
