Renee Barrett is the bookies’ favourite to be the 2021 Bachelorette

Meet your new Bachelorette? Bachelor in Paradise star Renee Barrett is the bookies’ favourite to lead the new season

As production continues on The Bachelor, the competition for who will be Australia’s next Bachelorette is heating up.

The top candidates for the role are former Bachelor star Renee Barrett, singer Paulini Curuenavuli and podcast host Abbie Chatfield, according to Sportsbet odds.

Renee, 29, who was left heartbroken on last year’s season of Bachelor in Paradise, is the front-runner with short odds of $2.50.

Numbers game: Renee Barrett, 29, who was left heartbroken on last year’s season of Bachelor in Paradise, is the front-runner to be this year’s Bachelorette, according to Sportsbet

Paulini, 38, who expressed interest in being the Bachelorette on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! earlier this year, has odds of $2.75.

Abbie Chatfield, 25, rounds out the top three with odds of $3.50.

However, Abbie has stated that she would probably turn down any offer because she would like the next Bachelorette to be a woman of colour.

Second favourite: Paulini Curuenavuli, 38, who expressed interest in being the Bachelorette on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! earlier this year, has odds of $2.75

Interestingly, Sportsbet’s two favourites are women of colour: Renee is Indigenous and Paulini is Fijian.

Less likely candidates include former child star Nikki Webster ($5) and Bachelor favourite Brittney ‘Litney’ Weldon ($10).

Several woman in Sportsbet’s ranking are currently in relationships, or at least rumoured to be, which means they probably aren’t worth betting on.

Do they know something we don't? Betting odds for pre-recorded reality shows differ from professional sports in that they are often determined by insider information. Therefore it may be more than just speculation that puts Renee at the top of Sportbet's list (pictured)

Therefore it may be more than just speculation that puts Renee at the top of the list.

It remains to be seen if 10 does go ahead with casting Australia’s first Indigenous Bachelorette – a decision that would no attract positive PR for the network after it was slammed for casting two white sisters, Elly and Becky Miles, last year.

Single? Several woman in Sportsbet's list are currently in relationships, which means they're not worth betting on. For example, Brooke Blurton ($10) is said to be dating AFL star Jed Bews
