The suits are being steamed. The roses are being planted. The ads have started on TV.
And when Monique Bowley sat down to guest co-host The Binge with Rosie Waterland this week, she asked her the only question on everyone’s mind:
WHO WILL BE THE NEXT BACHELORETTE?
Heather? Zelda? Someone we’ve never heard of?
Channel 10 may have put the call out for younger men keen to date an older woman. But that could easily be a red herring, designed to throw us off the scent.
Rosie has thoughts:
“In my dream of dreams it would be Laurina (Fleure). But I’m not sure if they will go with a known person. I feel like maybe they’ve done it with Richie and they’ve done it with Sam and now they are going to try and go with a freshie again.”
Which is, of course, a very wise analysis.
“But I have noticed that Lana, the girl who came second on The Bachelor last year, has been popping up on the Daily Mail every day…. and I feel like she is very subtly getting put in the spotlight by some savvy publicists. Probably because she is at the top of the list.”
“Nobody just out of nowhere just starts appearing in the Daily Mail everyday, so I get the feeling that it may be her.”
Good call, Rosie.
