‘The Bachelor’ Poll: Who Will Get The Final Rose From The Three Women Left Vying For Peter’s Heart?

Hometowns are over, and now we move on to next week’s ‘Fantasy Suites” episode  of ABC’s The Bachelor, which we know already has some drama, because Madison is saving herself from marriage, and from all the previews an ultimatum may be given to Peter from her!

This season of The Bachelor is supposed to conclude with something that has never happened before, or is very drama-filled.

The question is: from the three women left in the reality-dating competition; does anyone of them get the final rose and Peter’s heart?

We have Hannah Ann, Madison and Victoria F. who will be on next week’s episode when the series heads to Australia for the seemingly all-important episode.

But will none of these women get a proposal? Will someone such as Hannah Brown come back at the end and stir things up? Is there someone else from Peter’s past about to pop up?

Vote below on who you think Peter chooses in the end in our ‘Bachelor’ Poll.  Then let us know in the comment section why you cast your vote that way.

THE BACHELOR Season Premiere: Is Matt James Destined to be the Best in Franchise History? The First Impression Rose Is Given Out

On Monday’s premiere episode of the highly-anticipated seasons of The Bachelor, viewers finally saw groundbreaking lead ‘Bachelor’ Matt James in action.

James, became the first black ‘Bachelor’ in the reality-dating competition 25-year history.

It kicks-off for viewers getting an introduction into Matt’s upbringing: He’s biracial and was raised by a single mother in North Carolina. He played college football at Wake Forest University, lives in New York City and works in real estate, and volunteers a lot of his time with under-privileged children.

As pressure began to mount (right before the ladies drove up in their limos to meet Matt), he asked to talk to host, Chris Harrison, because some things were weighing heavily on him including: not wanting to let people down, knowing this was a moment in TV history.  Matt expressed to Chris: “I don’t want to piss off black people, I don’t want to piss off white people,” trying to figure how to navigate the season.

Throughout the episode, Matt’s nerves, honesty, and a request of himself and to the women, to be open through this journey, seem to serve him well, which left viewers with a solid first impression of him during the premiere.  He also led the women in a prayer before the first cocktail party kicked-off!

Speaking of the women, there are 32 this season that are vying for the final rose – the largest contingent ever.  Everyone was said to have quarantined for weeks and took four COVID-19 tests with hopes of getting to get up close and personal with Matt.  The entire season moved to a an expansive mansion and set-up in Pennsylvania, not Hollywood.

While there were so many cringe-worthy moments of the women trying to impress Matt when they first meet him … let’s not forget Katie with the vibrator dubbed “MJ”, or  Victoria who walks around calling herself “The Queen” and being the most annoying… we could already sense some possible connections with the others.

Making ‘Bachelor’ history also was contestant, Abigail Heringer.  She is the first deaf contestant to ever appear on the franchise.   Matt was very taken with Abigail in the season premiere with her beauty and her honesty.  Right off the bat, she admitted to him that she was deaf.  Later, during the cocktail party and some one-on-one time, she also revealed that her older sister is deaf as well. Both were born with congenital hearing loss, and both underwent cochlear implantation surgery

Matt then shares his first real on-screen kiss with Abigail, and next went searching for the first impression rose, while all the other gals got jealous.  He gave the rose to Abigail.   Next, it was time for the first rose ceremony and we can’t understand (well, we can .. they need someone to stir the pot) why “The Queen” Victoria received a rose and is still in the running, but that’s another story.  Some potential picks such as Bri, Mari, Chelsea and Kristin could be in it for the long-haul, but we shall see.

The episode concluded with another promo of all the tears and drama from the gals and Matt as this season continues next Monday night.

So, what was your first impression of Matt as The Bachelor? Abigail as the women who received the first impression rose? Who do you think will win Matt’s heart in the end? Any early predictions? Comment below.

In addition, Cassie claims Underwood has been showing up uninvited to her L.A. apartment and parent’s house in Huntington Beach, California.  This includes: a an allegation that Colton takes obsessed walks around her apartment complex and has loitered in an alley outside her bedroom window at her parent’s home in the wee hours of the morning.

At some point, Randolph says that Underwood even admitted to sending her accusatory texts that she was hanging out with her ex, and anonymous text messages where he was pretending to also be the victim of a stalker.  She says he later admitted to the planting of the tracking device and the messages.

The two broke up three months ago in May. The breakup came two months after Randolph helped Underwood back to health after he contracted and battled Covid-19.  The once lovebirds appeared on the 2019 season of The Bachelor,
