Who Will Be the Next Bachelorette 2023?

The first question on everyone’s minds is who is the next Bachelorette? Charity Lawson is the lucky lady on the latest series of The Bachelorette. If you watched the 2023 series of The Bachelor, Charity Lawson will be a familiar face. She made it to Zach Shallcross’ final four before an emotional departure following the hometown date. 

As usual, The Bachelorette features a former contestant from the previous gender-swapped season. However, 2023’s series brings some unexpected changes. Firstly, the show’s creator and showrunner Mike Fleiss isn’t returning for this season. 

He announced his resignation in March 2023, thanking ABC for “an extraordinary 21 years,” but giving no insight as to why his two-decade stint came to an end. According to Variety, this may be related to an ongoing internal investigation against him for racial discrimination and misconduct. Jason Ehrlich, Claire Freeland, and Bennett Graebner are running this season as his replacement.

The suitors’ time in the mansion could also be cut as The Bachelorette 2023 is expected to be shorter than usual. Just six men were left by early April 2023. Since filming started in March 2023, it seems Charity sent contestants packing swiftly. The exact number of episodes is unknown yet, although we know it’s always shorter than The Bachelor

Who Is Charity Lawson?

Charity Lawson is the next Bachelorette.

Her name is Charity Lawson and she’s been on our screens already, but what else is there to know about her? Well, Charity is a 27-year-old mental health therapist from Georgia. She graduated from Auburn University in 2022 after six years of studying and has a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. 

During her time at university, Charity became well-known on her campus as a member of a sorority, tutor, kitchen volunteer, and model. Is there anything she can’t do?

Her kind and loving nature made her a fan favorite during her time on The Bachelor. In fact, fans were incredibly vocal about wanting her to become the next Bachelorette. 

The showrunners listened, and the news was announced in the After the Final Rose special during a game of This or That. It seemed Charity was more shocked than the audience when she asked “Is this for real right now?”, followed by “Oh my god, I’m gonna cry!”

Charity later appeared on The Jennifer Hudson Show, expressing her gratitude for being chosen to find love. Talking about being the fourth woman of color on the show, she said “I acknowledge that this is so much bigger than myself… I’m honored to hold that representation for other people at home that look like me.” 

Just like you, we’ll be supporting Charity’s quest for love every step of the way. So, let’s find out what we know about the lineup and upcoming episodes.

The Bachelorette 2023 Lineup

In true The Bachelorette style, this season welcomed 25 men to the mansion eager to find love. We have many faces and names to remember, and some have already headed back home after failing to impress Charity. Let’s look at the full lineup to see who was (or still is) in for the battle of the final rose.

Loan Officer Taylor is 32 and living his best life in Springboro, Ohio. He’s a romantic at heart, usually found walking his dog or dancing to a new tune.

The Bachelorette 2023 Spoilers

It’s no secret The Bachelorette is pre-filmed every year. So, technically, someone already knows what’s going to happen. Charity and her Bachelor might be keeping things quiet, but lucky for you, we’ve found some insider info. Here are some of the rumors about The Bachelorette 2023.

The Bachelorette Filming Locations

Although we know the show is a global affair, we don’t always know which countries and cities are on the list. However, we’ve found a few spoilers revealing where Charity is taking her 25 Bachelors.

Of course, the Bachelor Mansion is a key location for the series. Episodes 1–3 all take place at the LA mansion where Charity is introduced to her suitors. For episode 4, Charity heads to Portland and Vancouver for one-on-one dates. Episode 5 moves us to New Orleans, before the hometown dates during episode 6. 

We know the final episode was filmed in Fiji, which is a first for The Bachelorette. The production team hasn’t revealed the finale location in previous seasons, but Charity spilled all when she posted snaps of the final episode online. 

Bachelor Eliminations

Charity doesn’t seem to be holding back. She’s already sent many of the men packing, eliminating six Bachelors in week 1 and a further five during week 2. Clearly, she didn’t hit things off with Warwick either — she sent him home almost immediately after their one-on-one date in episode 3. So, what else do we know about the elimination order? 

In week 4, rumors suggest we’ll see Brayden go after a group date, as well as Caleb, John, and Michael. In week 5, Charity supposedly dumps two more Bachelors following a group date — say goodbye to Sean and Tanner. As for the weeks after, we’re not sure yet. Some also speculate Adrian, who’s been dubbed the tattletale of the group, won’t last much longer for all the drama he’s creating.

Roses Revealed

Getting roses on The Bachelorette is like winning the lottery — for the Bachelors, at least. Charity’s already handed out a few flowers, with her first impression rose going to Braydon. She’s also expected to bless more Bachelors with their much-anticipated rose at the end of her one-on-one dates. Apparently, Dotun, Xavier, Joey, and Aaron B. all received a rose from Charity, with some getting more than one. They’ll need a vase! 

Dramatic Dumpings

What’s more ruthless than the Bachelorette sending one of her potential matches home after a group date? Talk about a bruised ego! Well, this season we’ll see a fair few of those. 

Even though he was one of the lucky few who received a rose, apparently Charity sends Braydon home in week 4 following a Girl Scouts-themed group date. In week 5, it’s expected we’ll see Sean and Tanner packing their bags after a group date alongside Aaron B and Xavier.

Charity’s Final Four

Joey, Xavier, Aaron, and Dotun are Charity’s chosen final four.

It’s clear from what we know so far that Charity has a few favorites. So, it might (or might not) come as a surprise to see this lineup in the final four. Charity’s last four contestants were Joey, Xavier, Aaron B., and Dotun. 

All four men get to enjoy a hometown date and some one-on-one with Charity before the final hoorah. Aaron doesn’t get the final rose, so he’s not one of the last three contestants. However, he was snapped in Fiji, so we can’t guess when he was sent home yet.

The Next Bachelor in Paradise is Here

Aaron B. will be the next face of Bachelor in Paradise, which airs later this year. ABC hasn’t confirmed a premiere date for season 9 yet, but we’re sure it’ll be as drama-inducing as ever. 

We may see some other previous contestants on the beach too, particularly those from the last season of The Bachelor. Ariel, Kat, Brooklyn, and Jess could make an appearance. Even 2022’s Bachelorette Rachel might try to win Aaron’s heart.

Who Is the Next Bachelorette’s Winner?

No one except the cast and crew knows for sure who the winner of The Bachelorette 2023 is. It’d only ruin the ending for us all. That said, rumors are circulating about Charity’s chosen match. In fact, it appears Charity revealed the spoiler herself.

Important: Scroll on now if you don’t want to know!

Supposedly, Charity and Dotun’s Instagram stories have secretly exposed their not-so-secret romance. Both Charity and Dotun posted from the same Dutch Fred’s restaurant in Brooklyn. Fans did a little digging, suggesting the table on both of their stories looked the same — apparently, the candle gave it away. Dotun quickly deleted his story, perhaps after realizing what fans could see.

Of course, it’s only speculation, but could we see Dotun crowned Charity’s winner? We already know he made it to the final four, so it’s definitely possible. Could there be a proposal? Could Charity break The Bachelorette’s curse of failed relationships? She did tease that her love story on the show will have a happy ending. We’re eagerly waiting in anticipation.

Where Can I Watch The Next Bachelorette 2023?

The Bachelorette streams live each Monday at 9 pm ET on ABC. Note, it’s an hour later than last year! If you have a live streaming service like fuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu +Live TV, or Sling TV (Blue or Orange & Blue), you can watch The Bachelorette live, as these all include the ABC channel. You can also catch each episode on demand the next day on Hulu

Unfortunately, all of these streaming services, and the ABC channel, are only available in the US. So, if you’re heading overseas, you’ll have to forgo your weekly dose of The Bachelorette — or perhaps not!

That way, you can stream on Hulu or the ABC app like you’re still sitting on your couch. We don’t impose any bandwidth limits, so you can watch all of Charity’s dates and dumpings buffer-free.

Is Love in the Air for Charity?

The 20th season of The Bachelorette promises plenty of fun, romance, and weirdly wonderful group dates as 25 men head to the mansion to steal Charity’s heart. 

Spoiler or not, we know which men make it all the way to Fiji, but who will be crowned Charity’s Bachelor? We’ll be waiting with you to find out. Tune in every Monday at 9 pm ET on ABC to see whether Charity will be dishing out roses or eviction notices. If you can’t make it, you can catch up on Hulu the next day.

Who is the new Bachelorette 2023?

Who is the new Bachelorette next season?

2023’s season of The Bachelorette started airing on June 26, 2023, on ABC. It features Charity Lawson as the latest woman on a mission to find her Bachelor. She made it to hometown dates on the last season of The Bachelor, and fans were very vocal about her becoming the next Bachelorette.

Will there be a Bachelor in Paradise 2023?

Need another reality TV fix? We’re with you. The spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise is back for more, airing later this year. It’s already confirmed Aaron B. (one of Charity’s bachelors) is the lucky man looking to find love on the beach.
