Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette has just premiered, but we're already thinking about the next iterations of the franchise. 

In just a few weeks, our favorite Bachelor franchise castoffs will be headed to Mexico for another shot at finding love onBachelor in Paradise -- and another special guy will get his own season as the Bachelor. 

John Paul Jones, Peter the pilot, "Big" Mike and Dylan were on host Chris Harrison's list of men to look out for, but we've got our own picks. Only one man can end up with the 24-year-old former pageant queen. Until we find out who that is, here's which of her men we're hoping to turn into Bachelor stars. 

Peter

The 27-year-old pilot from Westlake Village, California, made a big impact on night one (who doesn't love a man in uniform?). He definitely seemed to catch Hannah's eye -- and fans' too. We're calling it early: Peter for Bachelor -- or at least for Paradise. 

John Paul Jones

We're not quite sure what 24-year-old John Paul Jones does for a living -- or in his free time -- but he's enough of a character that we wouldn't mind watching him shake things up on the beach this summer. 

"Big" Mike

Harrison warned us that Mike might have a hard time getting out the friend zone -- and if that's true, he's a perfect candidate for Paradise. We're obsessed with his family and his smile, and while we suspect he might not make it far enough to be Bachelor material, we definitely want more of him on our TV screens. 

Connor S.

He already made Hannah Godwin's list of guys she'd like to meet in Paradise -- so why not? 

Connor J.

Connor J. thew Hannah a cute "Bachelorette party" on the premiere... he's earned his ticket to Paradise in our book!

"Box King" Joe

The 30-year-old Chicago native just might be the new "Grocery Store" Joe. While Hannah sent "Box King" Joe packing on night one, he certainly has the personality for another season of TV. 

Chasen

Only one pilot made it through the first rose ceremony, but Chasen's heartbreaking reaction to Hannah sending him home has us hoping he'll get another chance at finding love. 


Matt Donald

Here's another one who didn't make it past the premiere, despite his sweet story. Matt Donald delivered the kind of intro video we want out of a premiere -- it was heartwarming, silly and sweet -- and he just might be the next Paradise success story.

Garrett

Harrison also mentioned Garrett as a possible contender to look out for, and from what we've seen, the pro golfer's Southern charm might do the trick in Paradise. 

Tyler C.

The 26-year-old general contractor wasn't afraid to dance it out on Hannah's premiere, and that's exactly the kind of attitude we want to see in Paradise. Plus, we're pretty sure he's caught the eye of quite a few ladies. 

Luke P.

We know -- he's got the first impression rose and is the most controversial contestant so far, but we can't get enough drama on the Bachelor franchise. We're not quite sure what ticks him off enough to scream into another man's face in this season's Bachelorette promo, but maybe Luke P.'s chilled out a little enough for Paradise

As for our Paradise ladies, we're hopeful to see Hannah Godwin, Demi Burnett, Katie Morton, Caelynn Miller-Keyes from Colton Underwood's season -- as well as a few throwbacks. Let us know your picks in ET's Bachelor Nation Facebook group here

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
