Honestly aside from champagne gate, Kelsey really grew on me this season. I can’t believe Peter chose to keep Victoria F over her!! Tbh I think Kelsey would make a good bachelorette if they had to pick someone from this season #TheBachelor

Potentially unpopular opinion: I wouldn't mind Kelsey as the next Bachelorette. #ChampagneGate isn't a disqualifier for me, bc every girl this season except Madison has sucked at some point. And she's 28 & it would be nice to have a season with grown-ups. #TheBachelor

There’s no denying Kelsey's start on the show was a bit rough, but she actually has a better shot at becoming Bachelorette than one might think.
The first thing going for her is she made it to her hometown, as producers usually pick a leading man or woman who has made it to the final four. Hannah Brown, last season’s Bachelorette star, was actually an exception to that rule, as she only made it to the top five.
Along with being one of the last remaining women, Kelsey has also been very vulnerable throughout the season, which is a must for any lead.
During a one-on-one date with Peter, the 28-year-old opened up about her complicated relationship with her absentee father and how she’s decided to give him a second chance. This emotional moment not only let Peter learn more about Kelsey’s life, but it also gave fans an opportunity to connect with her in a real and authentic way.

Not to mention, Kelsey would be a unique and different pick for Bachelorette. She’s quirky, she’s emotional, and she’s not afraid to make fun of herself. She’s also a little bit older than the other girls in contention, which may be good for the show going forward.
