I’m back with my predictions of who will likely win these season of The Bachelor. You may recall that I don’t actually watch the show, but I simply watch the 20 minutes or so when the contestants come out of the limo (or arrive on a skateboard or camel, etc.) to greet the Bachelor or Bachelorette. I predict this based on the star’s immediate reaction to the contestant. That’s it! As silly as this seems, I have a pretty strong track record of predicting this show. You can see my most predictions for last season here.  I know this will be the MOST DRAMATIC season of The Bachelor ever, so here are my picks for who will prevail.

I say the winner and runner-up with be among these five:

  • Hailey
  • Vanessa
  • Sarah
  • Corrine
  • Astrid* (*I doubt she’ll win but she’ll probably do decently well)


Also, these three contestants got the same response from The Bachelor guy where he blinks very slowly, which means he likes the person but is trying to play it cool, so I think they will do well but probably not be top three finalists: Kristina, Danielle L, Whitney. I might be wrong about Danielle, though. She may do better than I think, but she was the first one out of the car, which makes the predicting a little trickier since I have no baseline.

Also, there will be at least two personality-disordered people who go deep into the competition, not because he really likes them but because the producers want them around for the drama.

Those are my picks and I’m sticking to them.

What do you think?
