It may be way too early to start speculating about who wins The Bachelor. (It's definitely too early, it's premiere night.) But, hey, a fan's gotta do what a fan's gotta do. That's why, throughout the season, this post will be updated with which contestants are still left on The Bachelor and in the running for Arie's heart.
It's worth noting that it's pretty likely someone will walk away with a ring at the end of all this. Arie is five years older than he was on The Bachelorette — and he was ready to propose then. He's also talked about how he's ready to settle down after The Bachelor, and it's unlikely that will change throughout this season. In fact, Arie told Us Weekly that he actually fell in love with two people — which should make for a pretty dramatic final rose ceremony. He told the magazine:
“The journey obviously was a great experience and I did fall in love. I actually fell in love with two people … The toughest part about being the Bachelor would probably be the end, making tough decisions toward the end. I mean, that’s the hardest decision of your life, really. It’s a forever decision, so it’s not taken lightly. I think that was probably the hardest thing.”
That hints that he did make a decision in the end and fall in love. So, who with? Well, here's who it could still be.
