Fans witnessed one of the most heartbreaking and emotional eliminations this week on The Bachelor season 20 as Ben Higgins said goodbye to Amanda Stanton. The single mother from Orange County, California was composed but clearly devastated by her elimination especially after she brought her daughters in the mix during the hometown date but now it looks Amanda has no hard feelings towards the 27-year-old software salesman.

After this week’s Bachelor episode, Amanda took to Instagram to thank her fans for all the support and basically said she remains optimistic about love despite not finding it on The Bachelor.
I may not have found love on the Bachelor…but I am lucky to already have so much love in my life that my heart could explode (…& still a lot more left to give!) ðŸ’— The amount of love and support ya’ll have shown me and my family week after week has completely BLOWN my mind! I was brought to tears tonight reading everything. I wish I could respond to each & every one of your comments, messages and emails. Please know that it does not go unnoticed and I am truly grateful! Kins, Char & I love you all from the bottom of our hearts ðŸ˜˜
Not surprisingly, fans of Amanda have already started campaigning for the single mom to be the next Bachelorette, including her ex-husband Nick Buonfiglia.
“I think she has a good story, and she’s been very genuine and sweet,” Nick told Us Weekly. “There’s a lot of single mothers out there – I think they can all relate to her story … It’s probably something I wouldn’t watch! But do I think she would make a good Bachelorette, absolutely.”
Aside from Amanda’s ex, several stars from Bachelor Nation are also rooting for her.
I’ve only watched one epi of the bachelor, and I stand by my first thought. Amanda for bachelorette.
