‘The Bachelor’ spoilers: Lauren Bushnell, Olivia Caridi, Caila Quinn top Ben Higgins suitors to watch

Bushnell -With the advent of a new “Bachelor” season once again means the beginnings of a tradition here at CarterMatt: Posting our weekly list of contestants to watch out for. These are not necessarily rankings and they’re definitely not spoilers: We’re just writing about these in terms of people who have received a great deal of screen time so far and are people to watch out for as Ben Higgins suitors in the near future.

Ready to dive in? Let’s go!

Caila Quinn – She’s getting the first one-on-one date of the season, and while there’s not a great correlation out there between people who get the first date and winning the show, it probably means that she’ll be around a little while.

Olivia Caridi – First Impression Rose recipient. That usually means a lot, but at the same time it also means that she will be under much more scrutiny than anyone else. After all, this is something that we do tend to see happen time and time again.

Amanda Stanton – She had an intro package with her young family, got some airtime with Ben, and there’s little evidence that she is going to be leaving the competition anytime soon.

Lauren Bushnell – She was the first contestant with an intro package shown, and she was also the first contestant to meet Ben this season. Obviously production wants the flight attendant to be remembered in some shape or form.

Becca Tilley – All things considered, she was an afterthought in the premiere episode … but we really cannot imagine that this is going to continue. If it does, what was the point of bringing her back on the show?
