Dear Channel 10, we've solved your casting dilemma for The Bachelorette 2016.

The answer is simple, really.

It’s only been a week since the final rose was handed over on the inaugural season of The Bachelorette, but there already there are whispers about who will be in charge of the rose pile next year.

Obviously, there is only one Sam Frost, but now that she’s found her one, we’ll be needing another someone to join on their journey to love.

Vying for the coveted role of bachelorette 2.0 there are two possible choices (in our minds at least), the two beautiful brunettes, who sadly lost out to Snez in the battle for Sam Wood’s heart.

Heather and Lana.

It’s okay ladies, your time will come.

Leaving aside for a moment that Heather has confirmed that she is, in fact, happily dating someone.

And completely ignoring the fact that someone as great as Lana is also, probably dating someone (and this whole thing is at least a year off).

Let’s just weigh the pros and cons, shall we?

Heather, lovely, laid back Heather.

To be honest for a long time we thought Heather had that thing in the bag.

There was that superhero date, the apple-bobbing contest, Warwick.

Honestly, anything to get Warwick back on our televisions.

But then, our dear Heather was inexplicably friendzoned when intruder Lana entered the house.


Lana, who was also lovely and laid back and, ah, who we also really thought would win.

Lana. Who delivered one of the steamiest spa scenes primetime television has ever allowed.

She would certainly make a great bachelorette. But so would Heather.

But so would Lana.

Actually, they would BOTH be great and we think they BOTH deserve every happiness.

Here’s your solution Channel 10: it doesn’t matter in the slightest.

Probably just depends on who’s single when next year rolls around? And at this stage, we’re pretty sure Heather isn’t.

But just FYI, we also had a few other suggestions when the announcement was first made:

Who do you want to be the next bachelorette?
