Meet the Women Competing for Chris Soules’ Heart on This Season of ‘The Bachelor’

You guys! The upcoming season of The Bachelor is right around the corner, and aren’t we so excited that this year it isn’t some ignorant asshole named Juan Pablo?!

Yes, this season we’re going back to our American roots with good ol’ farmer boy Chris Soules and a gang of beautiful women who will all be vying for his hand in marriage.

ABC is finally giving us our first look at the ladies who are competing for Soules’ soul (see what I did there?), and for the first time in franchise history there will THIRTY women on the Jan. 5th premiere of the show, hoping to get a hand on one of his 22 red roses.

To give you a brief run down: There are two Ashley’s, a Britt and a Brittany, another Nikki (what if she wins!?), a WWE dive-in-training, a wedding cake decorator (ironic), a cadaver tissue saleswoman (gross) and a former NFL cheerleader.

Launch the gallery above to meet ‘em all!
