“I think there’s multiple women from my season that would make great Bachelorettes, whether it’s Caelynn [Miller-Keyes] or any… I don’t know, there’s a few women. So yeah, I just want to see all of them happy, so it’s hard to just pick one.”

Underwood mentioned the possibility of Miller-Keyes becoming the next leading lady, but the 23-year-old may not even be interested in the gig.

With 'The Bachelor' coming to a close, it's safe to assume that a bunch of Colton's girls will be making an appearance on the beach this summer.

In fact, Miller-Keyes recently explained why filming The Bachelor was so emotionally difficult for her.

“I think I would be hesitant, just because this process sucked for me. I mean, it was absolute hell for me,” she said.

“I mean, there were several days where I would go to producers and be like, ‘I’m leaving, I can’t deal with this.’ Because it was hard, it was emotional. It was so incredibly hard for me.”
