2019 Prediction Competition

Recommended Posts

neurogirl

Since @Iamtheway started a fun thread on the Duggar side, I thought the predictors in us might have fun with a thread on the Bates side. At the end of 2019, those with the most answers correct will get a shout out and bragging rights. :) 

1. Who will announce the next Bates pregnancy?

2. At what date will they announce it?

3. Who will be the next to court?

4. At what date will they announce it?

5. When and where will the engagement take place?

6. What day will Carlin and Evan get married?

7. Where will Carlin and Evan go on their honeymoon?

8. Will Josie continue to work as a hair stylist now that she's married? (And if so, for how long?)

9.  Who is the next celebrity Lawson will call out on social media?

10. How many grandchildren will Gil and Kelly have in the end of 2019?

1. Whitney

2. On thanksgiving

3. Nathan

4. I’m gonna say June 2019

5. Engagement early 2020 (March), on the girl he’s courting’s hometown

6. May 25th, 2019

7. Mmm..I think maybe somewhere in Europe. I’ll guess Italy

8. Yes she will continue at the salon, I think she will keep working during her first pregnancy. I think she’ll stop working at the salon once she has a baby, but will do some house calls + special occasions (weddings)

9. Another liberal country singer

10. They will add at least 4:  Whitney, Erin, Josie and Alyssa. 

Michael is still an incognito to me. I don’t know what to say about her, but Something in my gut tells me next year she will have a baby.

9.  Who is the next celebrity Lawson will call out on social media?

10. How many grandchildren will Gil and Kelly have in the end of 2019?

1. Whitney 

2. I’ll agree with @SorenaJ. They’ll announce on their fifth anniversary. 

3. Nathan

4. Not sure about an exact date. I’d guess an official courtship will be announced in springtime of next year though. 

5. It won’t. She’ll run for the hills faster than Ashley did. (And yes, I purposely blew my chances of a correct answer to make fun of Nathan because he’s just such an asshole.)

6. Hmm. I want to say May because of that private account... but I’ll guess January 5th. 

7. Most of them appear to have honeymooned within the US (except Josie and Erin.) I could see these two going somewhere warm though, so... I’ll guess Florida. Specifically, Disney. This way they get their international trip via Epcot. :pb_lol: 

8. She will for now. She’ll stop working at some point during her pregnancy though. After that she’ll style hair for family, close friends, and their special events. 

9. Hmm... he seems to be triggered by celebs who aren’t republicans. So I’m not too sure at this point. 

10. They have 8 at the moment... so I’ll go with 12 grandkids (Zach, Erin, Alyssa, and Josie) with one on the way (Carlin.) I don’t feel comfortable speculating about Michael since they’ve been open about their struggles.

Hmm, I didn't realize American Thanksgiving was next week. I thought it was the week after. I might amend my prediction for Whitney, then. I think their fifth wedding anniversary is probably a fairly good bet.

You have clearly not tried to put anything away lately in my over stocked fridge and pantry!  :)

If I were a betting woman I'd make book on someone announcing Thanksgiving.

1. Who will announce the next Bates pregnancy? Wishful thinking, but I really hope it is Michaela.

2. At what date will they announce it? December 25th.

3. Who will be the next to court? Another wild guess, but I think it will be Nathan or Trace.
