The competition for The Bachelorette is heating up. Ahead of tonight's Bachelor finale, spoilers guru Reality Steve has shared which woman he thinks will likely be the next lead.

On today's episode of his podcast, Steve said he's heard clues that "point to" Minnesota native Daisy Kent leading the next season of The Bachelorette.

"If you're gonna tell me, 'Who do I think it's gonna be based on what I'm hearing?' I would say Daisy," he said. "It's leaning towards her."

But, Steve added that this hasn't been confirmed, meaning we'll likely find out during Joey's Bachelor finale.

Of course, this is devastating news to fans of Maria Georgas, whom many fans hoped could be the next leading lady.

Meanwhile, things are getting serious on-screen, too. During Monday night's episode, the ladies reunited for an emotional Women Tell All, which featured Maria in the hot seat. And during the finale, Joey will choose between Kelsey and Daisy for his final rose.

So, who will be the next Bachelorette? Here’s everything to know so far.

**Warning: Spoilers ahead**

Reality Steve thinks the next Bachelorette will be one of these two women.

This season of the Bach has been a bit wild. Usually, fans can count on Reality Steve to spill the beans on the winners.

However, this season, his initial intel was off when he announced Daisy Kent would ride off into the sunset with Joey. In reality, it seems that Kelsey Anderson walks away with the Neil Lane diamond and Joey’s final rose. That said, there are two possibilities that he's raised as potential Bachelorettes.

Daisy Kent

Daisy seems a likely choice for the next Bachelorette. The 25-year-old Minnesota native makes it to the final two of the season (per the spoilers, tyvm Reality Steve). But Daisy apparently realizes that Joey is going to pick Kelsey.

And in an "unprecedented" move, Daisy has a discussion with Kelsey about it. Steve says, “Daisy basically told him she knows it’s not her, and it was a positive breakup.” Love this mature energy...perhaps so do producers?

Steve noted that Daisy could have a similar season to Desiree Hartsock, who met her husband Chris Siegfried on The Bachelorette in 2013.

During his most recent podcast episode, Steve shared that all signs are pointing towards Daisy as the next Bachelorette, but he can't be sure.

Maria Georgas

Meanwhile, Maria made a stir this season, getting into drama with both Lea Cayanan and Sydney Gordon. But fans have applauded Maria’s grace and honesty through it all, and she’s pulled in a ton of new social media followers in the process. Maria has nabbed over 500,000 new followers since this season's premiere, according to the Bachelor Data Instagram account.

This kind of growth hasn't been seen since before Peter Weber's 2020 season, the account writes. The fan-fave was eliminated after a hometown date in her native Toronto.

Steve has compared Maria to Kaitlyn Bristowe, who led the series in 2015. But fans have another lead they think she'd be similar to: Hannah Brown, who went on her journey for love in 2019.

There are a few other options on the table.

Rachel Nance

Rachel, a 27-year-old ICU nurse from Hawaii, is another contender. Rachel made it to the final three of the season and was a fan fave for her generally sweet demeanor.

Lexi Young

Lexi, a 30-year-old digital strategist from Ohio, could be an underdog pick for the next Bachelorette. During the season, she opened up about her struggle with endometriosis, and ultimately quit after learning that she wanted to begin a family more quickly than Joey.

Jenn Tran

Jenn, a 26-year-old PA student from Florida, also took the hot seat during the Women Tell All. She formed a connection with Joey on the season's second one-on-one, when she opened up about her family dynamic.

AD Smith

AD Smith, a fan favorite from the most recent season of Love is Blind, has proven popular with the fans.

She put her heart out on the line in the pods, first with Matthew who turned out to be, basically, two-timing her. And then, she stuck things out with Clay, who eventually said no to her at the altar. (Though, he did say he wants to keep “rocking with” AD, whatever that means.)

It seems AD is single and ready to mingle, making her an excellent addition to Bach Nation.

'The Bachelorette' kicks off filming soon.

According to Steve, The Bachelorette will begin shooting sooner rather than later. In fact, the first night at the Mansion will happen tomorrow, March 26, according to the spoilers guru.

"Limo entrances are tomorrow night," he confirmed.

Then, after the premiere, the cast will be immediately whisked away to sunny Oceania, with Steve adding that their first two stops are in Australia and New Zealand (not necessarily in that order).

But the entire season won't be filmed internationally, he said. At the end of April, the series be shooting in an American city, Steve confirmed, though he didn't reveal which one.

'The Bachelorette' will premiere in a few months.

Luckily, there will be a lot of Bachelorette content in fans' futures. The Bachelorette will air this summer, quickly followed by The Golden Bachelorette in the fall, according to ABC.

So, who will be leading both shows? Viewers will have to wait a little longer to find out.
