We are T-24 to the premiere of The Bachelorette, starring the beloved lawyer who was far too good for Nick Viall on last season of The Bachelor. (That may sound harsh, but she knew it, we knew it, he knew it…probably even Corinne knew it.) We loved us some Rachel last season, with her sly wit, beaming smile, and knows-what-she-needs personality.

So we decided to ask three of our weekend editors to sift through all those contestant bios — yes, including the “Whaboom” guy — and pick their favorite to outwit, outlast, outplaya, to win Rachel’s heart.

Jessica Ellis, senior weekend editor.

Bachelor obsession level? Will drop out of boring seasons, but always gets drawn back in.

Jessica’s pick for the winner?

Pick for not-a-chance will he make it?

Briana Hansen, weekend editor.

Bachelor obsession level? Only what she knows through SNL sketches.

Briana’s pick for the winner?

Pick for not-a-chance will he make it?

Chelsea Duff, weekend editor.

Bachelor obsession level? Here for the first season of The Bachelorette with Trista — and finally back. After tweeting through last summer’s Bachelor in Paradise and Nick’s season, all in for Rachel.

Chelsea’s pick for the winner?

Pick for not-a-chance will he make it?

All in all, Rachel’s got a good head on her shoulders, so we know she’ll make the right choices. But, Rachel, if you need help — call us!

Best of luck, Rachel!
