If Brad is actually engaged to Emily, then who will be the next ‘Bachelorette?’ Could it be Chantal? An insider tells HollywoodLife.com a last-minute casting shuffle has changed everything!

Could Bachelor Brad Womack in fact be engaged to Emily Maynard and not Chantal O’Brien? Reality Steve — the usually reliable TV blogger  who originally said Chantal was the winner — now says Brad and Emily are engaged. That would leave Chantal high and dry!

Now if Emily is in fact the winner on The Bachelor, runner-up Chantal may have been in line to become ABC’s next Bachelorette. But we are hearing that original casting plans have dramatically changed.

“They changed the Bachelorette at the last minute,” a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife.com. “They were finalizing the list of male contestants and word spread that they had swapped out their previous choice for The Bachelorette. It was chaos.”

That could mean that both Chantal and Emily are out of the picture for The Bachelorette. So who could be the lucky girl?

There’s speculation that Ashley Hebert or Vienna Girardi, who was briefly engaged to former Bachelor Jake Pavelka, could be up for the coveted spot. Both have said they would love the opportunity if it was presented to them.

BFFs, who would you like to see as the next Bachelorette?

After you vote, be sure to catch the silly video of Brad singing “Firework” in the backseat — it’s posted below. He almost puts Katy Perry to shame!
