Jimmy Kimmel Predicts Who Will Win This Year's 'Bachelor'
The latest Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., dropped by Jimmy Kimmel LIve! on Tuesday night to discuss his new role as ABC's most eligible single man.
The season 22 star, a professional race-car driver turned realtor, was the runner-up on Emily Maynard's 2012 season of The Bachelorette. Now, at age 36, he finds himself the center of attention for current contestants vying for his heart.
As he has done in previous years, Kimmel made his predictions for who would take home the final rose this season in his "Rosetradamus" segment.
Kimmel displayed four contenders (Tia, Chelsea, Becca M. and Becca K.) and offered his predictions to Luyendyk, Jr.
First, for Tia, Kimmel noted that she gifted Luyendyk with a "little wiener" when he met her and predicted Luyendyk "won’t pick her, but you will keep her around for a while."
Next, Kimmel made predictions for Chelsea. "She’s clearly going to be the villain, so she needs to stay around for a while," Kimmel said, causing Luyendyk to shuffle uncomfortably, eliciting a loud reaction from the crowd.
For Becca M., Kimmel noted, "She made the other girls cry in the promo, which means she will be around for a while. I believe she’s in your final four." Luyendyk was mum on the prediction.
Finally, Kimmel revealed his prediction for this season's winner: Becca K. "Despite a weird start, making you get down on one knee … You seemed into her. You also gave her the first rose, which means she’s probably the only one whose name you remember," Kimmel said. Once again, Luyendyk wouldn't offer a clear confirmation of the late night host's predictions.
"Maybe you won’t pick any of them,” Kimmel quipped.
