After years of being a reality love-show watcher, I believe that I am really good at predicting who will become the couple that will withstand it all. With confidence I am going to give a clue on who I think will become Mrs.Shallcross.

The Bachelor is a reality show where a man dates multiple women over the course of weeks, hoping for a chance at love. On Jan. 23, the 27th season of the beloved show will premiere.

Zach Shallcross, a 26 year-old from season 19 of the Bachelorette with Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey, is the man under the spotlight. On Monday, the public will see as Zach meets 30 ladies searching for the same thing: love.

After carefully looking through the candidate list full of women fighting for one man’s heart, one woman caught my attention. Jessica Girod, a 23 year old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, Florida.

At the end of the weeks of travel, drama and group dates, I think Jessica will be the one to receive the beautiful diamond ring from Zach. Men love to date younger women, and Jessica is three years younger than Zach.

The woman who makes the biggest impression on Zach will receive the Impression Rose on night one. This season’s front runner for me is Anastasia Maria Keramidas, a 30 year old from San Diego, California. 

The pot stirrer of the group of women will most likely be, from my view, Holland Parsons. The eyes just scream “I’m crazy,” and we will see if that’s true. 

The ladies in the house this season look extra dramatic, and I for one can’t wait to see the journey unravel. Tune in to find out if my predictions were accurate on ABC every Monday night at 8 p.m.
