Let's see if we can make some predictions.
Hometown: Lawton, OK
Occupation: Personal Stylist
Can She Win?: Yes, if she agrees to style Arie pro bono.
Hometown: Denver, CO
Occupation: Business Owner
Can She Win?: Maybe, if we knew what kind of business she was running! It's very weird that The Bachelor doesn't say what business certain contestants own. What are they hiding? It's probably a salon. Somebody has to do hair and makeup for the girls.
Hometown: San Mateo, CA
Occupation: Event Designer
Can She Win?: No. Arie would never understand what an "event designer" is.
Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL
Occupation: Real Estate Agent
Can She Win?: She's a real estate agent from West Palm Beach named Ashley. She didn't even have to choose to be on The Bachelor. It was fate.
Hometown: Prior Lake, MN
Can She Win?: Nah. What is she even publicizing in Prior Lake, MN? If it's the city of Prior Lake, she's not doing a good job. Unless going on this show is publicity for Prior Lake, in which case she's brilliant and not even trying to win.
Hometown: Fresno, CA
Can She Win?: Sure. The Bachelor always says he likes someone who's good with kids whether or not he means it.
Hometown: Miami, FL
Occupation: Executive Assistant
Can She Win?: Yeah, but this is one of the jobs that truly doesn't matter for the purposes of The Bachelor. She's going on this show so she never has to be an executive assistant again, you know?
Hometown: Grants Pass, OR
Occupation: Sports Reporter
Can She Win?: 100%. Rachel Lindsay is a sports reporter now. So is Jordan Rodgers. People go on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to become sports reporters. She's ahead of the game.
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Occupation: Marketing Manager
Can She Win?: Sure, why not. Marketing manager is a classic Bachelor job.
Hometown: Columbia, SC
Occupation: Tech Recruiter
Can She Win?: Maybe? It's weird that there's been a tech recruiter on two consecutive seasons (Dean from The Bachelorette was a tech recruiter). We know how it turned out with Dean, so tech recruiters don't have a great track record, but then again what happened to Dean had nothing to do with being a tech recruiter.
Hometown: Holliston, MA
Can She Win?: Maybe the fact that she's a member of the National Association of Realtors will give her an edge over the less-credentialed real estate agents.
Hometown: South Portland, ME
Occupation: Real Estate Executive Assistant
Can She Win?: The fact that she's a real estate executive assistant competing against a full-blooded Realtor does not bode well for her.
Hometown: Morgantown, WV
Occupation: Research Coordinator
Can She Win?: Depends on whether Arie likes smart women or not.
Hometown: Upland, IN
Occupation: Social Media Manager.
Can She Win?: Def. The Bachelor loves it some social media managers.
Hometown: Northbrook, IL
Occupation: Graphic Designer
Can She Win?: I'm going to zag here and say no. Creative professionals are not very desired in this franchise. Maybe if she designs renderings for real estate firms she'll have a chance?
Hometown: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Occupation: Television Host
Can She Win?: It depends on what kind of host she is. If it's sports, then yes; if it's news, probably not; if it's entertainment news, definitely not.
Hometown: Santa Clarita, CA
Occupation: Creative Director
Can She Win?: Creative director, though, might just be businessy of a creative job enough to pull off a win.
Hometown: Missoula, MT
Occupation: Fitness Coach
Can She Win?: UH NO DOYYYYYY
Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA
Occupation: Tech Salesperson
Can She Win?: Maybe not winning, but she has a great chance of being the next Bachelorette. Ben Higgins and Nick Viall were both tech salespeople.
Hometown: Indianapolis, IN
Occupation: Executive Recruiter
Can She Win?: "Executive Recruiter" is like a mash-up of weaksauce jobs "Executive Assistant" and "Tech Recruiter," so no.
Hometown: New Roads, LA
Occupation: Recent Masters Graduate
Can She Win?: Well, if "Recent Masters Graduate" is code for "Unemployed," then no.
Hometown: Dallas, TX
Occupation: Social Media Manager
Can She Win?: "Social media manager from Dallas named Lauren" is another perfect Bachelor trifecta, but it's probably too perfect. She won't win.
Hometown: American Fork, UT
Can She Win?: You know that rude expression "take a picture, it'll last longer?" Maquel better have taken a lot of pictures on her first and only Bachelor night.
Hometown: Salt Lake City, UT
Occupation: Restaurant Owner
Can She Win?: I'm going to say no, for a reason that relies on a probably unfair stereotype: restaurant owners are too intense.
Hometown: Belton, SC
Occupation: Orthopedic Nurse
Can She Win?: Yes! She can fix Arie's bones if he breaks them in a race car accident. I'm sure this will come up a lot.
Hometown: Geneseo, IL
Occupation: Marketing Associate
Can She Win?: Naaaaahhhhhhh.
Hometown: Long Beach, CA
Occupation: Commercial Real Estate Manager
Can She Win?: Are you kidding me? Of course!
Hometown: Weiner, AR
Occupation: Physical Therapist
Can She Win?: Yes indeed. As a physical therapist, she knows how to manipulate people.
Hometown: Nashville, TN
Can She Win?: No. A server from Nashville is not on The Bachelor to win. She is here to make friends. Bachelor franchise people love to hang out in Nashville.
