There is another new episode of “The Bachelor” airing on ABC Monday night, and with that we are here once more with the latest continuation of our recurring series of Suitors to Watch. These are not so much pure contestant rankings per se as they are a list of notable contenders for Ben Higgins’ heart to watch out for. In one way or another, they have received a ton of attention and screen time on the show so far.
Lauren Bushnell – She’s getting a one-on-one date tonight, but more than that the editors have made a clear effort to show her in both of the first episodes of this season. As a result of that, you have to start to think that she could be more of a long-term contender.
Jubilee Sharpe – She’s also getting a date tonight, and to go along with that the previews suggest that she could be getting into some drama.
JoJo Fletcher – Given that she just got a group-date rose, don’t you have to consider her a contender? We think so, and she could be helped by the fact that she is a little more low-key than some of the other contenders.
Caila Quinn – What happens to the person after they receive the first one-on-one date? This is always an interesting question, and something that the show will try to answer in one way or another Monday night. Hopefully, Caila will handle the loss of alone time okay.
Olivia Caridi – Is she a real contender, or just the favorite to be the most-hated contestant of the season? Right now, she’s probably both based on her air time.
