The Maney & LauRen Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-9:00AM

As “Bachelor” Matt James gets closer to picking his winner, there’s word on the next season of “The Bachelorette.” ABC has apparently had their eye on fan-favorite contestant Katie Thurston as the next lead.

Sources close to the show tell “Variety” that she’s all-but-set to be the next “Bachelorette.” The network hasn’t made a final decision yet, but they’ve noticed how Thurston has been turning heads all season… ever since the first day when she introduced herself with a sex toy.

The insiders say Katie is the top pick for the next leading lady. ABC has declined to confirm or deny the news. We’ll keep you posted.
