The next winner of The Bachelor will be a divorcée or a single mom.

Last night's episode of the ABC show saw Bachelor Brad Womack eliminate Ashley Hebert, leaving Chantal O'Brien, who ended her marriage of four-and-a-half years in 2009, and Emily Maynard, whose fiancée was killed in a plane crash while she was pregnant with their daughter.

O'Brien, an Executive Assistant from Mercer Island, Washington, was married to Jason Vena--the former lead singer of Seattle alternative rock band Acceptance--from 2005 to 2009. The couple dated for over six years before tying the knot.

According to Life & Style magazine, Chantal regretted her decision to end the marriage.

"She knew she'd made a mistake," an anonymous source told the tabloid, who claimed Chantal begged Jason to take her back before beginning her stint on The Bachelor.

The report notes that Vena is now engaged.

When asked by Brad if she wants to get married again, Chantal answered with a resounding "totally," telling Womack on their first one-on-one date: "I want to have that relationship, to have that union and I want to have that person that I come home to at the end of the day, that I'm so excited to share my life with."

Tune into ABC on March 14 at 8 p.m. to find out which woman makes the final cut.
