ABC's The Bachelor

Winner – Rachel

We’re actually glad Nick didn’t pick the amazing Texas lawyer as his bride-to-be. Now, we get a whole season of The Bachelorette with Rachel calling the shots! Gotta say, that’s better than being the recipient of Nick’s final rose.

The Bachelor - ELIZABETH

Loser – Liz

She may have redeemed herself during The Women Tell All by going all “We are women hear us roar,” but we just can’t forget how annoying Liz was at the beginning of this season. How many times did we have to hear about Jade and Tanner’s wedding and her drunken sex session with Nick? Way too many times thanks to Liz! Nick saw through her and quickly sent her home. We were all truly grateful for it.

Winner – Alexis

Alexis was the talk of premiere night with her dolphin (read: shark) costume. It was a bold move and was a great respite from the always awkward limo entrances. Was there anyone cooler and more down to Earth than Alexis this season? We think not.

The Bachelor - TAYLOR

Loser – Taylor

If we have to hear the words “emotional intelligence” one more time, we might lose it. Taylor cemented her status as one of the “losers” of this season with her pretentiousness when dealing with arch nemesis, Corinne. We were rooting for Corinne all the way on their two-on-one date just because we couldn’t take any more of the Johns Hopkins grad.

The Bachelor - Raquel

Winner – Raquel

Raquel gave Corinne a run for her money in the “Biggest Breakout Star” category (if there was an award for such a thing). Corinne’s longtime nanny stole America’s heart when she displayed mother-like protectiveness over Corinne during the hometown visits. If Corinne gets her own spin-off show, we definitely want to see more of Raquel.

Loser – Jasmine G.

Jasmine G. became an instant “loser” of this season when she joked about choking Nick when he didn’t give her enough attention. Girl, joking about violence is not okay. We weren’t exactly sad to see Nick let her go after her odd declaration.

The Bachelor - CORINNE

Winner – Corinne

This should come as no surprise, because Corinne was basically the star of this season! We can’t even imagine how boring this season might have been without her. From napping sessions to her platinum vajeen (proper spelling) comments, she was unrivaled in bringing the drama and LOL’s. We can’t wait to see what she’ll bring to Bachelor in Paradise, because MUST BE THERE.

The Bachelor - NICK VIALL

Loser – Rose Ceremonies

It’s almost as if we can count the number of rose ceremonies we’ve had this season on one hand—because we can!

We miss the days when every episode ended with a rose ceremony. Are you listening ABC?

The Bachelor - VANESSA
Mitch Haaseth/ABC

Winner – Vanessa

We would consider Vanessa a winner even if she hadn’t received Nick’s final rose. She was an all-around nice Canadian. We love how she was never afraid of being honest with Nick and those around her. Now let’s just hope long distance doesn’t keep these two lovebirds apart.

The Bachelor - RAVEN
Mitch Haaseth/ABC

Loser – Raven

Poor Raven. We came to love the Southern belle throughout the course of the season. The only reason why she’s a “loser” is because Nick ultimately didn’t choose her. Maybe we’ll see her in Paradise? Either way, she doesn’t have to deal with Nick…that’s a win, right?

[Spoiler alert: This post contains information about the winner of The Bachelor Season 21. If you have not watched the episode, stop reading now.]

This season of The Bachelor was another wild ride with so much craziness (as is The Bachelor norm), so many cocktails, and too much Corinne. Now that Nick has handed his final rose to Vanessa, it’s time to take a look back at the season and crown the real winners and losers.

Flip through the gallery above to see who we think came out on top on Season 21 of The Bachelor and who we think should ask for a refund for her 15 minutes.
