Zach Shallcross sent Charity Lawson home after hometowns on Monday night's episode of "The Bachelor".

The following night, on the “Women Tell All” episode, which aired on Tuesday, “Bachelor” host Jesse Palmer sat down with Charity Lawson to do a little “This or That”. Palmer started off by asking easy questions such as “Sunrise or sunset?” and “Camping or glamping?” But that is when Palmer got down to business, asking Lawson “Bachelor in Paradise or The Bachelorette?” to which Lawson hesitated slightly before answering “The Bachelorette”.

“I’m glad you said that, because Charity, I want you to be our next Bachelorette,” Palmer said, dropping the bomb and completely shocking Lawson.

Lawson accepted and will begin her journey as the "Bachelorette" within the next few weeks.

So what is Lawson looking for in a partner? "I feel like for me, I definitely am looking for someone who is a compassionate person, so someone who is extremely kind and treats others well. For me, that's something I value and I have in myself, so I also want that in my partner," she said on "Good Morning America".

Lawson then went on to add, "I also love to laugh and have a good time so a sense of humor, I think that's huge. Anyone who can come out with a. good joke or two is a winner."

Although Lawson does not have a huge say in where they will travel to on her journey, she did say she would love to visit Greece, however, she made it clear she is not getting in a cage and swimming with sharks at any point in time.
