Desiree Hartsock’s Bachelorette journey may be over, but as the one who went down the rose-strewn path before Season 10’s Andi Dorfman, we think she knows a thing or two about what sort of man is Bachelor quality. After all, she had the good sense to send Juan Pablo packing, right?

Well, our girl Des is chiming in to say which of Andi’s fellas is her early pick for the next Bachelor and we must say, she continues to have (mostly) great taste in guys. In her recap of Andi’s second week of soulmate-searching, Desiree opines that cornfed Iowa land baron Chris Soules would make a super sweet lead for Season 19.

“I imagine him staying a long time, but if he doesn’t end up as Andi’s then I think he would make a great Bachelor. What do you think?” Uh, we think DUH, Des. That smile? Those eyes? Plus his huge... tracts of land? What’s not to like. If Des wasn’t heavy into wedding planning with Chris Siegfried, we wouldn’t blame her for trying to sign up for a second stint — though she might have some competition from another former Bachelorette.

But will Andi keep Chris for her very own or release him into the wild for 25+ women to hunt down? Well, we can give you the skinny on who this belle of Buckhead, Georgia picks, as well as the early buzz on who’ll next dole out the roses, if you’re inclined to spoil yourself.

What do you think of Desiree’s pick for the next Bachelor? Are you toning up your abs and hopping on a tractor to head to central casting?
