We have two weekends now to try and size up Catherine Giudici and Lindsay Yenter as favorites to win “The Bachelor,” and what we are looking at right now is certainly the most interesting race possibly since Jason Mesnick had to choose between Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft, and he ultimately ended up picking both at one point or another.
Both Catherine and Lindsay each bring something to the table for Sean: they are fun-loving, spirited people who do have strong beliefs and want to be in relationships. They also both made it to the finale despite not being favorites for the first couple of weeks of the season. For Jake Pavelka, Brad Womack, and Ben Flajnik, it was ultimately pretty obvious just who they were going to pick among their ladies left.
While this is a close race, we do believe that there is a favorite here for Sean … and we’ll check in here again next weekend to see if that status is still the same following the “Women Tell All” special.
2. Catherine Giudici (last week: 3) – If we are judging this choice strictly based on what we see on TV, you have to say for the time being that Catherine is the underdog. She failed to really have any noteworthy moments with Sean for almost the entire time that the two were in Los Angeles, and we’re not altogether convinced that she would be here had Desiree Hartsock’s brother not acted like a complete tool during her hometown date.
We do still think in some ways that Catherine would be the woman who would be the best suited for Sean. She is very positive, kind-hearted, and genuine, and she has also shown herself to be someone who takes matters of love and intimacy rather seriously.
1. Lindsay Yenter (1) – At the end of the day right now, what matters the most is what we see onscreen. Lindsay has been one of the first names called out during the Rose Ceremony each of the past few weeks, and her relationship with Sean has been almost bulletproof since the first night. They have a great physical chemistry, and they also have a great deal of fun together.
The only thing that could hold Lindsay back, however, are memories of the first night, and the possibility that Lindsay may actually be too much fun for him. While he also got along with him rather well, being the son-in-law potentially of a United States General may still be rather intimidating.
Based on everything you have seen at the moment, who do you think that Sean should pick? Be sure to vote in our poll below, and also check out some early scoop on the “Women Tell All” special over at the link here.
