Luckily for fans of this super successful offshoot of The Bachelor, the network is gearing up to debut The Golden Bachelorette in the fall of 2024.

In keeping with tradition, the woman meeting 20 or more potential husbands will likely be someone we already know — and whom Gerry said goodbye to on his season.

So let's consider who The Golden Bachelorette may be, from Joan Vassos to Faith Martin.

So, who is going to be on 'The Golden Bachelorette'? Joan leads the guesses.

Blonde and beautiful Joan is one of the women who America would root for after she made the choice to leave The Golden Bachelor.

And, as Joan told E! News, "I would be open to it. I believe in the process. Oddly, I kind of came into this as a little bit skeptical and I see how it worked. It's like speed dating on steroids. And people find love on the show and I want to find love still."

Gerry sent this hopeful home after the hometown dates, making her elimination a tough pill to swallow for fans at home.

About whether Faith is also open to being The Golden Bachelorette following her reality TV journey, she said, "I would love to find out more about it. I mean, to have 25 men to choose from? I would have to say yes, I think."

Leslie Fhima thought she was going to end up with Gerry, but now says she has learned how to navigate dating a bit differently following her turn on the show.

"I think I will be more open. I won't be so picky," she told EW in Jan. 2024.

And specifically, when it comes to being on the spinoff version of the show that made the country fall in love with her, Leslie said, "Yeah, I would."

Another woman who was sent home on Gerry's season was Ellen Goltzer.

She has said she isn't sure about appearing on the The Golden Bachelorette. But, Ellen also admits she's happy the show is happening, saying, "Regardless of who it is, it means that the public wants more. And that to me is very flattering in itself."

According to a former executive assistant for the show, Sandra Mason is the way to go as the first Golden Bachelorette.

"Well, I think Sandra would be a great fit. So the answer's emphatically yes," the source told E! News.

Whoever The Golden Bachelorette turns out to be, we're guessing the show will be widely watched — and we know we'll be tuning in to see a lucky lady find her happily ever after later in life, giving all people over a certain age hope that it can still happen.
