‘The Bachelor’ preview: Are Desiree Hartsock, Lindsay Yenter locks?

DesireeWith “The Bachelor” getting ready to start an all-new episode Monday night, we thought that we would present one final preview to paint a picture of just where all of the women could end up by the time that the episode ends.

So who do we almost anticipate seeing for sure during the hometown dates? With this being the most unpredictable season that this series has ever seen, the only two people we perceive to be locks heading into hometown dates are Lindsay Yenter and Desiree Hartsock. Both have trended upward within the past week, and have gotten over at least one emotional hurdle each with Sean Lowe … a pretty good sign that he likes them. (Getting plenty of screen time surely does not hurt.)

So who’s in the biggest trouble? Based on the previews that we have seen, you have to include Tierra LiCausi and maybe even AshLee Frazier in there based on the heated argument that they get into. Sean has already made it clear that he’s not much of a fan for drama, and while he pretty much begged AshLee to clue him in on what is going on with Tierra, he still may not like finding out that the two got into a screaming match back at their residence in St. Croix.

Finally, this leads us with two wildcards: Lesley Murphy and Catherine Giudici. We could see both of them moving on, but we definitely see one of them moving on. To us, Lesley has received the more screen time overall, but has faded in recent weeks. Catherine is someone who could continue to build something great with Sean, but she’s going to have to move quickly in order to get to where some of the other ladies are.

Who do you think are locks to stick around on “The Bachelor”? If you want to see where we ranked some of Sean’s contenders leading into this week’s episode, you can do so over at the link here.
