Bachelor Colton – my bracket picks for Season 23

If you missed the blank Bachelor Bracket for Season 23, the empty bracket is still available here.

However, with Episode 2 upon us, it’s time for me to reveal my Bachelor Colton Bracket picks. First, a few important notes:

1. The numbers I use for each week are based on the traditional Bachelor/ette format. Obviously, these are subject to change should additional (or fewer) men be sent home during a particular episode. While entire-season spoilers exist, which would allow me to use perfectly accurate numbers for the bracket, I’m playing along, too – looking at spoilers would essentially ruin my ability to play.

2. Just because I chose a woman to continue through the process doesn’t necessarily mean I’m rooting for her. I usually go on instinct of who I think woos OR weasels their way through. That said, this season is the most up-in-the-air for me to date. I don’t have a gauge on what Colton actually wants (does anyone?) so this season my picks are about 40% instinct, 10% hopeful and 50% guess. It’s not a great breakdown for success.

And, speaking of percentages, I have about 14% confidence in my picks so I’m dying to know who you’re picking as The One and would love to hear your thoughts throughout the season.

Good luck!! May the best woman not end up as the Season 15 Bachelorette!

      Fingers crossed, Jennifer! I’m a little nervous, given some of the cryptic clips we’ve seen from future episodes, that she may not be as sweet as she seems so far… then again, clips from last season would have you believe there was a brutal brawl that was actually a guy falling out off bed, so…

    Hey I just wanted to comment and firstly say thank you for putting together this bracket. My wife, teenage daughter, and I have been using it for the past 2 seasons and really enjoy the quality you put into it…especially the photos of the girls. It really makes it easier keeping them all straight earlier in the season.

    I did want to point out on your bracket, and I think I remember this being the case last season as well, that for the 2nd rose ceremony you have 18 picks for the ladies but there are actually 19 remaining after that rose ceremony. Not a huge deal but I just figured you’d want to know. Thanks again for the quality work and keep it up!

      Aw, thanks, Quentin! I love that you, your wife and your daughter are all playing and watching along together! And you’re right. My numbers are occasionally off. I’ve been using an old “standard” formula for the number of women/men that receive roses each week (the actual number in any given season is a highly protected ABC secret, so that there are always surprises for the viewers), but perhaps I should update 2nd Rose Ceremony numbers going forward, since this seems to be a trend now.

      Again, thank you so much for your kind words – and I’m glad the addition of the “Cheat Sheet” for the women is helping! I’d love to know who you, your wife and your daughter have picked for The One – and good luck!!!

Let me know your thoughts on this
