In addition to the newly-revealed 25 girls, there's another contestant who will join the show when it premieres January 7, 2013.
ABC has revealed the 25 girls who will be seen in "The Bachelor" season 17. Among those competing for Sean Lowe's attention are models Amanda, Ashley H. and Kristy, journalist Lauren, poker dealer Leslie H., substitute teacher Lindsay, as well as Jumbotron operator Paige.
There's a 26th woman who is also competing on the show, but her identity will not be revealed until the season premiere on Monday, January 7, 2013. Of what he's looking in a girl, Sean once said, "They have to be intelligent, funny, witty...I like sweet girls."
Sean was dumped by Emily Maynard in "The Bachelorette" season 8. The insurance agent from Dallas was optimistic that he would find his true love this time, saying, "I understand that the process works - I believe in the process. And ultimately if I were to find my wife, it would certainly all be worth it."
