The hunt for ABC's The Bachelorette 2015 lead is on and the network will be making a decision very soon. Fans have definitely been buzzing about the possibilities and the likely candidates all have their supporters. Where do things stand at this point? Some might be a bit surprised by the supposed candidates.
Reality Steve's spoilers have been saying for months now that the Bachelorette 2015 lead would likely be Britt Nilsson. While he still thinks that could very well be the case, he now thinks that the door is open at least a bit for other possibilities. Steve said this week that he believes the decision is really down to Britt and Kaitlyn Bristowe at this point.
For a bit, the idea was being floated around that perhaps Andi Dorfman would return to look for love again. However, after her sit-down with Chris Harrison recently, most would agree that she's not in the right place to fall in love again. According to E! Online, insiders say that there's no way Andi would return. In fact, sources seemingly say that there is no chance that Dorfman would put herself through the experience again.
Bachelorette insiders tell E! Online that at this point the decision is down to four women, and they're all from Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor. Britt and Kaitlyn are on the list, but so are Becca Tilley and Jade Roper. However, the source says that Jade would be a long shot, due to her scandalous Playboy past.
In addition, the source says that Becca would be a long shot too, as having a virgin Bachelorette lead with the guys all clamoring to be "the one," would be a bit too much. What about Whitney Bischoff? Supposedly she's considered to be too nice to lead her own season, though Reality Steve's Bachelor spoilers would point to a very different reason she's supposedly not in consideration. Bachelor fans will notice that Carly Waddell, the only top six lady of Soules' not mentioned, apparently isn't making the cut for consideration.
A number of "Bachelor Nation" fans have also tossed out names from other seasons, such as Michelle Money and Clare Crawley. However, insiders don't seem to be biting on those possibilities and Reality Steve's spoilers indicated that he doesn't think the network will go in that direction and that they'll stick with someone on Chris' season.
Though Britt's fan base has been quite vocal about wanting to see her as the Bachelorette 2015 lead, the poll at E! Online has Kaitlyn very much in the lead so far. The decision will be made soon after the taping for the "Women Tell All" special, which reportedly is taking place on February 21. Bachelor spoilers would seemingly give Kaitlyn a bit of an edge based on how far she makes it and the history of the show, but it's definitely not a done deal yet.
