Next up! As Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor comes to a close, Bachelor Nation looks to season 11 of The Bachelorette to get a weekly fix of rose ceremonies, drama, and fierce competition.
The so-called Prince Farming, 33, has whittled it down to his two final contestants: Chicago-based fertility nurse Whitney Bischoff and California chiropractic assistant Becca Tilley. He started with a record 30 women, some of whom are now being mentioned as frontrunners for the starring gig in the next season of The Bachelorette.
Kaitlyn Bristowe, a dance instructor from Canada, made it all the way to the final three before being let go by Soules in a heartbreaking rose ceremony in Bali. The spunky down-to-earth contestant told Us Weekly that she was shocked by her elimination and hasn't met anyone since the show.
"I'm busy and that was a heartbreaking moment for me and I just don’t have the urge," Bristowe told Us, adding that she's having trouble trusting people after her recent rise to fame.
"I do think it’s a very unique opportunity," she said of doing The Bachelorette. "I think [it] opens a lot of doors for real love to happen."
Bristowe was preceded in eliminations by Jade Roper and Carly Waddell. California resident Roper was let go after hometown dates, during which time she revealed to Soules that she once posed for Playboy. While he said it didn't bother him, he chose not to give Roper a rose in the subsequent rose ceremony.
The stunning brunette made it just one episode further than her good friend Waddell. The good-humored cruise ship singer spoke often on the season of her bad luck in love and her desire to find someone who wanted her as much as she wanted him. Waddell was eliminated by Soules right before hometown dates.
A final name being thrown into the mix is that of divisive California waitress Britt Nilsson. The gorgeous contestant made waves when the women visited Soules' home state of Iowa, as she repeatedly changed her tune about the bachelor's tiny town of Arlington. She had a dramatic, tear-filled exit from the show in week seven.
Nilsson told Us that she isn't dating anyone right now and spent time at home in Michigan for a month before returning to Los Angeles. She added that she would "totally" do The Bachelorette, explaining, "I think the process works. It worked for me up until a certain point, and I think it works for him and I’ve seen it work for a lot of couples. I think that would be an amazing experience and if they asked me I would say yes."
Whoever fills the role will follow season 10's Andi Dorfman, who chose Josh Murray in her season finale last July, only to split with him in January. Cast your vote between Kaitlyn, Jade, Carly or Britt in the poll above!
