To accompany the announcement, ABC has released a series of short bio pages for each contestant, revealing their favorite foods, snacks and other fun things. Ashley and Amy L. both list Dr. Seuss as their favorite author, while Alexis prefers The Bible. Amy J says her favorite holiday is the Forth of July “because it’s so romantic and I’m grateful for our freedom!”
Andi, a 26-year-old Assistant District Attorney, once convicted a murderer in eight minutes, which is one tenth of the time it takes Christy, 24, to get ready for a date night. (She says she clocks in at around one hour and 20 minutes.)
A few contestants appear to be currently unemployed: Kelly, 27, identifies her occupation as ‘Dog Lover’ on her official bio page and Lucy, 24, lists ‘Free Spirit’ as her occupation.
To celebrate their first night at the mansion, Juan Pablo throws a dance party in the hopes of lightening the mood. ABC teases that the night won’t be without drama. During the introductions, Clare, 32, a hairstylist who has focused on work most her life, says she’s “never experienced romance” and arrives to meet Juan Pablo seven months pregnant. We’ll see how single dad, Juan Pablo, reacts and whether or not it impacts his first rose ceremony, when the 27 women vying for his heart get cut down to 18.
Juan Pablo recently tweeted a picture from the famous Bachelor mansion of himself and host Chris Harrison.
