The Bachelor, Lauren B, Jojo

ABC

Two women enter! One woman leaves (with a rock on her finger)! This...is Love Thunderdome!

Wouldn't it be a lot cooler if The Bachelor was actually called Love Thunderdome? Missed opportunity, ABC.

Anyway, tonight we finally find out who Ben Higgins chooses on the season finale of The Bachelor. Will he pick blonde, bubbly Lauren Bushnell, who has always been pegged as the frontrunner? Or will it be JoJo Fletcher, the sexy, sassy beauty who slowly but steadily emerged as a serious contender? We have no idea, but we do have a way to try and predict who Ben will propose to tonight. 

Let's take a look at the very first moment Ben laid eyes on both JoJo and Lauren B. during the introductions in the premiere episode. Sometimes, all you need to predict the winner of The Bachelor is to go back to the beginning. Or whatever.

We're going to show you two photos of Ben reacting to seeing the finalists. And based on these photos, you tell us who you think he sparks more with initially, and then we will reveal who he was looking at. Sounds fun, right? Even if it doesn't actually sound fun, just humor us, OK?

Here he is locking eyes for the first time with woman A:

And here he is first gazing upon woman B:

Can you tell which woman Ben is more into just based on that first look? Probably Woman B, right? The smile is bigger, the eyes a little more lit up. Guess who that is?

Yep, the frontrunner. He's looking at Lauren B. But here are a couple things to consider about these first impressions, though.

Lauren B. was the very first woman he met, so it's a no-brainer he would be super happy and smily seeing that the very first contestant he meets is a knockout like Lauren.

And lest you forgot, JoJo first came out with a unicorn mask on, so the above photo is the moment Ben actually saw JoJo's face for the first time. But if you'd like to see how he reacted to seeing her come out of the limo with the unicorn head, here it is:

He's both confused and delighted. So maybe that's more important to him in a future spouse; someone who keeps him on his toes.

Here's more first meeting moments in GIF form if you want to try and guess who Ben probably clicked with the most first:

The hands on the heart moment is really cute with Lauren is really cute. No one can deny that.

But he seems a little more relaxed and goofy with JoJo, right?

Based on these first meetings, we'd have to say Lauren B. is the winner tonight, which is fitting because Ben did say he had a love at first sight moment with the SoCal flight attendant. Thus ends our really scientific and 100 percent accurate prediction of tonight's Bachelor finale.*

*Nope, not really scientific or accurate at all. But yay love!
