It's the Battle of the Bens, featuring Jared and "Cupcake" – who will be the next Bachelor?

Fans are dying to know which of former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's handsome castaways could become the next Bachelor. We've narrowed it down to the four picks with the most potential to land the coveted role of The Bachelor's season 20 leading man.

Ben H.
Perhaps the most popular man of the bunch, Ben Higgins made it to Bristowe's final three suitors. In addition to being ridiculously good-looking and a complete gentleman, Higgins basically won the hearts of every woman watching when he turned the most awkward sex-ed date around and gave his 11-year-old audience an adorable speech about relationships. Of the rumors he's a potential candidate, the 26-year-old baby-faced software salesman told PEOPLE he knows "this is a great arena to meet somebody."

Ben Z.
Despite (accidentally) sending one of Bristowe's suitors to the hospital during a boxing ring date, Ben Zorn is a gentle giant. Bristowe calls the barrel-chested entrepreneur from San Jose, California, "such a sweet guy" and admitted that sending him home in week 7 was "a tough one."

Jared Haibon made one of the most gentlemanly exits in Bachelor history during his emotional goodbye with Bristowe in week 8, even offering her his jacket in case she was cold. After leaving the show, the 26-year-old spoke out in support of the current Bachelorette after she endured some pretty hateful backlash for her decision to have sex with contestant Nick Viall, and Bristowe calls him ''a class act'' and a "sweet, compassionate gentleman." However, there's a chance the restaurant manager might be out of the running because of his stint on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, which premiered Aug. 2 on ABC.

Chris ''Cupcake''
He may be able to laugh about it now, but Chris Strandburg (nicknamed Chris "Cupcake" in reference to his memorable entrance in a cupcake-shaped car) had a full-scale sobbing breakdown when Bristowe sent him home in week 7 (#neverforget #thescarf). In her weekly blog post, Bristowe had nothing but kind words for the 28-year-old dentist: "Cupcake, if you are reading this, we had some really great moments together."
