Where are my Bachelor fans?? We are gearing up and getting excited for the new season! Are you excited? I am! The new season premieres January 2! That is coming up quickly!!
I thought it might be fun to give ya’ll a preview of the cast! Their pictures are all on The Bachelor’s Facebook page and ABC, so I figured we could show you the ladies!! There are 30 of them, so grab a snack and a beverage and here we go!
These are in no particular order and I share some excerpts from their bios. All bios are given for the pics above from Left to Right. Shew 30 girls is a LOT, I hope he gets rid of quite a few quite quickly!
First up our Bachelor
Nick is 36 and a Technology Salesman from Milwaukee. He is one of 11 kids! WHAT? Nick first appeared on Andi’s season (which I didn’t watch – I know I know – terrible), then he came back during Kaitlyn’s season. Both times he was the runner-up! Next up he tried out Bachelor in Paradise, and was very close to finding love but he was the one rejecting this time around. Now, he seemingly can’t lose on this time around since he is doing the picking and handing out the roses.
They all apparently got a memo saying wear black heels with a strap across your toes.
Kristina – 24, Dental Hygienist from Lexington, Kentucky, she was adopted and wants to see if birth mom thinks choosing alcohol over kids was worth it (whoa heavy), she loves American Ninja Warrior (so do I!), out of any fictional character ever she chose to be Fiona (interesting choice). I like her.
Christen – 25, Wedding Videographer from Tulsa, Oklahoma, wants to break into the White House, practices dance moves while watching DWTS, wants to be the President, and is afraid of failure. I suspect she will be on a watch list now that she has revealed these tidbits.
Susannah – 26, Account Manager from San Diego, has a few tattoos, a fictional character she would want to be is Ariel because she has amazing hair and a seashell bra, and she buys a lot of expensive shoes.
Jasmine G. – 29, Pro Basketball Dancer from San Francisco, she has a tattoo inside her lip? (WHAT?), Out of anyone in the whole world she chose RuPaul, Dave Chappelle and Prince to have lunch with, she would like to be the guy version of Guy Fieri for one day, she would buy socks if she won the lottery, and she is most afraid of being left in open water (um that fact could come back to bite her).
Corrine – 24, Business Owner from Miami, she had tattoos that she is getting lasered off (um there has to be a story there!), hates a date who is in love with himself (um? I think Nick sort of is), her business is an online business. (I think she is really beautiful but I hate the shirt she is wearing).
Lacey – 25, Digital Marketing Manager from Manhattan, her biggest dating fear is that her date goes on another date after hers (um has she seen this show?), she must have had some bad breakups/relationships because her biggest regret is giving people 3rd and 4th chances, she has never brought a date home to meet her family.
Angela – 26, Model from Greenville, SC, 5 things she can’t live without: lip balm (me too !), water (well nobody can), hair tie, iPhone and her mom, she doesn’t like to drive, and she loves desserts and licks the popcorn bag.
Alexis – 23, Aspiring Dolphin Trainer from Secaucus, New Jersey, so does that mean she has a job or not?, she can’t live without: family, dog, best friend, fake eyelashes, and whitening strips. Her most embarrassing moment was being told she had a mustache by her ex, and she would be the Little Mermaid if she could be a fictional character, and she is most afraid of E.T. (really? out of everything in the world?)
Jasmine B. – 25, Flight Attendant from Tacoma, WA, she said her ex would say her 3 worst attributes are: she’s too nice, she cares too much what others think, and she gets stressed easily. She likes to crack her neck, she was engaged once and they broke up because she was too young, and he didn’t deserve her greatness. (those shoes ick)
Taylor – 23, Mental Health Counselor from Seattle, the most outrageous thing she has ever done is streaking, she loves Forever 21 for clothes, a card is the most romantic gift (NICK save some money!), she loves chocolate, and to impress a man she: is herself, is open and authentic, and look bomb. I think she likes herself.
Dominique – 25, Restaurant Server from Los Angeles (why not just say waitress?). Her fave movies: Titanic, Dirty Dancing and 2012. She meets men online through Tinder and Bumble (never heard of bumble), lunch with 3 people would be: her grandfather, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jesus over Chipotle burritos, she mentions Chipotle burritos again saying it is one of the 5 things she can’t live without along with: dog, family, music and sunshine. I really don’t like her outfit. Maybe Taylor can take her to Forever 21.
Rachel – 31, Attorney from Dallas, she would like to be Mrs. Obama for a day, she passed her bar exam on the first try, she is very fearful of any flying animals, and she regrets focusing too much on her career and possibly she missed out of finding love.
Josephine – 24, Registered Nurse from Santa Cruz, CA. She admires her brother most in the world, she is Jewish, but open to all religions, her biggest dating fear is bad breath and awkward kissing. I am concerned about her shirt and would like to help pull it up a bit for her. Kids these days!
Hailey – 23, Photographer from Vancouver. Ok, I just have to say, she looks like the kid who showed up on picture day and didn’t know it was picture day. She is cute, but everyone else seems so glammed up, and she just seems like she is coming over to play frisbee. She has 7 tattoos, she isn’t romantic, she went to China to build schools and teach orphans and considers that her biggest achievement.
Olivia – 25, Apparel Sales Representative from Anchorage. The most outrageous thing she has done was try out for her high school football team and became the kicker (um yeah that is outrageous!), she is a hopeless romantic and loves Nicholas Sparks books. She is most afraid of spiders and not finding love. (Aren’t there millions of available men in Alaska? that is what I have always heard!). She reminds me of Caila.
Briana – 28, Surgical Unit Nurse from Salt Lake City. 5 things she can’t live without: coffee, water, family/friends, socks and chapstick. Another plug for the Little Mermaid if you could be one fictional character, specifically because of her hair, her animal friends, and that she marries a cutie. She eats Big Macs and looks like that – that might be my problem, I don’t think I have ever had a Big Mac.
Lauren – 30, Law School Graduate from Naples, FL. Does that mean she is job-less? Her greatest date memory is dinner, conversation and miniature golf. 5 things she can’t live without: soft vintage Hall&Oates Tee, chapstick, family, sushi, and music. She would like to visit some state parks.
Elizabeth – 24, Marketing Manager from Dallas. She mentions Bumble and another dating site I have never heard of, Hinge as where she meets guys. If she could be anyone for just one day – she would choose Kate Middleton or Britney Spears – you know because they are so similar. Um, her reasoning for picking Kate – she is a princess, and Britney because she is a queen. Duh (she actually said Duh 2x). She considers herself organized messy. Her biggest fears are claustrophobia and misophonia (which I had to look up as she suggested)…”hatred of sound”. hmmm.
Sarah – 26, Grade School Teacher from Newport Beach, CA. When asked what was the most outrageous thing she had done, she said being on this show or moving to NYC with 3 dollars, 2 bags and herself. Um yeah, that qualifies. She loves white roses. She likes to gamble, and her fictional character choices would be: Meredith Grey, Olivia Pope or Carrie Bradshaw.
Astrid – 26, Plastic Surgery Office Manager from Tampa. 5 things she can’t live without: mom, phone, lashes, yoga and red wine. Another shout of to The Little Mermaid, but she wants to be her before she had legs. She doesn’t want to work and loves all thing Real Housewives. She is most afraid of dying alone and getting old and wrinkly (well you work for a plastic surgeon…so there’s that).
Michelle – 24, Food Truck Owner from Los Angeles. How cool is that she owns a food truck! Lunch with 3 people who would it be and what would you order: Albus Dumbledore – Sunday Roast, Gwen Stefani – Tacos, and Princess Diana – Fish and Chips. A typical Saturday night is dinner and drinks with girlfriend or take-out Chinese and a movie. She has hang-glided, loves kayaking and can speak Portugese.
Danielle L. – 27, Small Business Owner from Los Angeles. Favorite movies: A Walk to Remember, Love Actually (ME TOO!), and The Notebook. Most embarrassing thing she listens too – Glee Soundtracks (haha me too!). Favorite book: The 5 Languages of Love. (I really like that book too!) Hmm maybe I should date her. LOL just kidding. Her greatest achievement is opening her own business at the age of 23.
Jaimi – 28, Chef from New Orleans. I love that she is a Chef! The most outrageous thing she has done is crowd surfing, which she loved. Her greatest achievement is Catering the Oscars (well I guess so, she must be a good Chef!). She can apparently bench press a man, and that is what she would do to impress him. Her worst date memory, was when her date got up and sang to her – Nick she didn’t like that!
Danielle M. – 31, Neonatal Nurse from Nashville. She has a couple of tattoos being removed and one on her finger. 5 things she can’t live without: family, friends, water, chocolate, and green smoothies. She was apparently engaged before, and her fiance died.
Ida Marie – 23, Sales Manager from Harlingen, TX. She would pick a giraffe for the animal she would be. She wants to be Selena Gomez for the day, because she can’t sing, so being able to sing would be cool. She snacks on cheetos and pickles. She doesn’t read much. Her biggest date fear is falling, or getting food stuck in her teeth. I don’t like her outfit.
Elizabeth “Liz” – 29, Doula from Las Vegas. 5 things she can’t live without: coconut oil, floss, music, fresh air and Bible. She picks her nose in the car. Her greatest achievement is serving as Doula for her sister.
Vanessa – 29, Special Education Teacher from Montreal. She said her best attributes are her personality, drive to succeed, and her patience. She is afraid of sharks and bees and afraid of hurting people’s feelings. She speaks French and Italian. She is beautiful!
Whitney – 25, Pilates Instructor from Chanhassen, MN (MUST DO PILATES!). She is loverly. She is afraid of Horses. She has no regrets. Favorite food: Fresh fruit, dark chocolate, pancakes, and french fries.
Brittany – 26, Travel Nurse from Santa Monica, CA. 5 things she can’t live without: mom, tennis shoes, sun, chocolate and music. She is afraid of snakes. She hates when her date is rude to servers or is on his phone. She likes to camp when it isn’t cold.
Raven – 25, Fashion Boutique Owner from Hoxie, AR. If she could be anyone for one day she picked Blue Ivy since she is the child of Jay Z and Beyonce. Um ok. The fictional character she would choose is Princess Jasmine because of her hair and her pet tiger. She uses cheap hair products and is a terrible cook.
Only 3 girls wore dresses out of 30? There had to have been a special request for distressed jeans for their wardrobes! 7 girls had distressed jeans. 27 girls had on some form of jeans, 3 of those were white jeans (funny I thought there was more than that).
I think a LOT of these girls are too young. Alexis, Hailey, Taylor and Ida Marie are all 23! Nick is 36! I think late 20’s or early 30’s would be a better match for him – like 29, 30 or 31. There are about 6 girls who fall in that range.
Crystal’s pick just based on this post: Sarah (school teacher) Michelle (food truck) Danielle L (small business owner) Whitney (pilates)
Kerry’s pick just based on this post: Sarah (school teacher) or Michelle (food truck) Vanessa (gorgeous) Rachel (older more mature really ready for love)
