With the finale of ABC's The Bachelor 2016 right around the corner, fans are starting to look ahead to this spring's season of The Bachelorette. Spoilers tease that a decision regarding the new lead will be made very soon and as fans have figured, it seems that one of Ben Higgins' final four will be getting the gig. What's the latest scoop on this impending decision?
Us Weekly says that the Bachelorette 2016 lead with come from Higgins' hometown date recipient group. That means that JoJo Fletcher, Caila Quinn, Amanda Stanton, and Lauren Bushnell are the ones currently in the mix of things as the show pins down a decision. Each of the four ladies has a solid fan base, though, of course, one of them is currently engaged to Ben and thus not an actual contender.
Seeing the next Bachelorette lead come from the final four will not come as much of a shock. While Jen Schefft and Emily Maynard "won" their Bachelor seasons and came back as leads after their engagements fell apart, all of the other leads so far have been ladies who were in the final four during their season. In fact, oftentimes that third-place spot has been the hot spot for garnering the gig.
