'Tis better to give than to receive… Roses, that is.

Kaitlyn Bristowe may not have captured Chris Soules' heart on "The Bachelor," but we may not have seen the last of her. That is, of course, if Chris has any say on who should be cast as the next "Bachelorette."

"She's got a great personality. She would be fun, and she's a funny girl," he told PEOPLE. "She would handle crazy dates and she would be able to hang out, and be entertaining, and she's ready to find love."

Even if the next star of the show isn't Kaitlyn, Chris is confident the producers don't need to look too far to find someone intriguing.

"There are a lot of great candidates [for the next 'Bachelorette']," he said. "That's one thing I said after the first night when I met all 30 of these women. I told the producers that they're going to have the best 'Bachelorette' next season because they have the best group of women that I've ever seen."

Kaitlyn, though, seems to be front-runner for the job. The brunette dance instructor thought she found love with the man known as Prince Farming, but he left her heartbroken at a rose ceremony in Bali when he gave roses to two other women.

Many viewers were left stunned and saddened as Kaitlyn had become a real fan favorite. Almost immediately after she was sent home, a social media (and traditional media) campaign began, calling for producers to make her the next "Bachelorette." On "Good Morning America" on Feb. 24, she was even asked if she liked the idea of potentially becoming the next "Bachelorette."

She said, "It doesn't make me upset to think about it."

So, things may be coming up rosy for Kaitlyn after all.
