Hey there, Bachelorette fans. I'm Jager Weatherby from Wetpaint Entertainment, here to break down Ashley Hebert's two top contenders from Season 7: JP Rosenbaum and Ben Flajnik. Based off the palpable chemistry between the dancing dentist and these two cuties, there's a strong possibility she'll be walking off the show with one of them on her arm. But who should it be? The 34-year-old construction manager JP or the 28-year-old winemaker Ben F.? Let's take a look... but only if you don't mind a few spoilers.

Ashley's connection with JP started on night one when they bonded over his nickname, Cupcake. He hated it. She loved it. So they happily agreed she could have it. Two episodes later, JP had the unfortunate luck of having his first one-on-one with Ashley right after Bentley left her broken hearted. But he was the perfect gentleman as they talked and cozied up by the fire in their PJs. During some QT in Thailand, the two had what may be the steamiest kiss in Bachelorette history when they locked lips in the rain and he carried her back inside to a jealous bevy of bachelors. The other guys can see their chemistry and it's obvious to viewers, too. Even dismissed Season 7 contestants Jeff Medolla and West Lee both predicted JP as the winner in their exit interviews.

And *SPOILER ALERT* they just may be right. Spoiler King Reality Steve said the season ends with Ashley engaged to JP. However, Steve has gotten bad intel on the last two finales, so it's possible Ashley really picks someone else — like, maybe, hot winemaker Ben F.

Ashley's sparks with Ben have been slower to develop, but as Ashley said in her Episode 4 blog for People magazine, "Looking back at this week, the most important lesson I took away is that the best type of love starts off with a slow burn, and eventually turns into something much brighter than a spark ever could." That was the same week Ben got his first date rose from Ashley. He impressed her with his artistic side at the orphanage in Phuket, Thailand... and she said he melted her heart, making her look at him in a new light. On their first one-on-one date the following week, Ben talked about being an emotional zombie since his father died and how he wants his future to involve spoiling his lady love. Ashley revealed her growing feelings for him when she asked Ben if she could one day join him at his winery in California.

There's also this bit of information from the Life & Style story with Ashley on the cover saying "Yes, I'm engaged." When talking about her mystery fiance, an insider said, "He's the sweetest guy, and he's very sensitive. He had his heart broken in the past, but he loves being in a relationship, and he and Ashley have great chemistry."

That actually sounds a bit more like Ben than JP. But at this point we're still on Team Cupcake — Ashley could use a tough guy like JP to give her some emotional strength and maybe help alleviate some of those insecurities that we first saw in Season 15 of The Bachelor. But Ben remains the dark horse of Season 7, so who knows... he just may win us all over in no time.
