Golden Bachelor Contestants We’d Love To See as the Golden Bachelorette

The Golden Bachelor

The Golden Bachelor is already a huge hit, which has caused Bachelor Nation fans to begin circling the idea of a Golden Bachelorette. Typically, after each season of The Bachelor, one of the women who is not chosen then leads her own season of The Bachelorette. This should be no different for The Golden Bachelor, since it is way better than recent seasons of The Bachelor anyways.

There are several women from The Golden Bachelor that would make an amazing Golden Bachelorette. While some of them are still in the running for Gerry Turner‘s heart, they would be a great lead if he does not choose them.

Joan Vassos

Joan Vassos recently quit The Golden Bachelor to be there for her family, but she could still be a great Golden Bachelorette! After impressing Gerry with a poem at the talent show, Joan won a romantic one-on-one dinner with him. Joan won Gerry over, and the two quickly developed a connection.

Unfortunately, Joan had to leave the mansion the next day when she got a call that her daughter needed her. Joan puts family first, which is a great quality for any Bachelor Nation lead to have. Joan also seems truly ready for love again, even if she and Gerry were not meant to be.

Natascha Hardee

While Natascha Hardee may not have lasted long on The Golden Bachelor, her eccentric personality left a lasting impression on viewers. From the moment she walked out of the limo, Natascha gave off a fun and youthful energy. Natascha used her time with Gerry to laugh and enjoy herself, instead of talking about things that were too serious.

Gerry ultimately sent Natascha home during the second rose ceremony, and she even managed to make light out of her elimination. Natascha suggested that the rose ceremony should be done in chairs, since the women are senior citizens after all! Between her humor and wholesomeness, Natascha would make a great Golden Bachelorette.

Patty James

Many viewers were rooting for Patty James before the season even began, since she is the mother of former Bachelor, Matt James. Despite Patty’s anticipated appearance, Gerry sent her home during the first rose ceremony. Patty seemed disappointed but wished Gerry the best as she took her exit.

Patty has the potential to be a great Golden Bachelorette, especially since she is already known throughout the franchise. Bachelor Nation fans first met Patty on Matt’s season, where it was evident that they are a close-knit family. Patty also knows that the process can work, since it did for Matt!

Leslie Fhima

Leslie Fhima is still in the running for Gerry’s heart, but if she doesn’t win, we would love to see her have her own season! Leslie made an impression from the moment she first stepped out of the limo, and revealed that she even dated Prince! She certainly has an interesting backstory, which is key for any Bachelor Nation lead.

Another admirable thing about Leslie is her attitude, as she is always there to support the other women. After Leslie had been hoping to win the talent show, she was understandably disappointed when she did not. However, Leslie made it a point to emphasize that she was happy for Joan, which was really nice to see.

Theresa Nist

ABC/Ricky Middlesworth

Theresa Nist is another frontrunner, who could potentially win The Golden Bachelor. However, if she does not, we would be down for her own season of The Golden Bachelorette. Theresa is one of the most likable women in the mansion, who always seems to be looking out for others. Despite being accused of gloating about her connection with Gerry, Theresa is a kind woman with good intentions.

Theresa was the lucky recipient of the season’s first one-on-one date, where viewers learned more about her back story. Like Gerry, Theresa married her high school sweetheart, who later passed away. Theresa has been single for ten years but now appears very ready to find love. If she does not find it with Gerry, we need to see her find it with someone else!
