AceShowbiz - The 29 women competing for Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s heart in season 22 of "The Bachelor" have been revealed. In a press release on Friday, December 8, the ABC dating competition series intriguingly said that they were all the women "who can be revealed," sparking speculation that there might be an additional cast member to be announced at later date.
In the meantime, let's meet the 29 beauties of this season of "The Bachelor". The girls are coming from a wide range of occupation, including nanny, a real estate agent, business owner, tech recruiter and personal stylist. Among them are 27-year-old Ali, a personal stylist from Dallas, Texas, and 30-year-old Krystal, a fitness coach from San Diego.
There is also 32-year-old Annaliese, whose hometown is San Fransisco, California, who is dubbed as a fellow "kissing bandit." Maquel, a 23-year-old photographer from Orem, Utah, decides to pull up in a race car, attempting to impress Arie, who first appeared in Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette".
The cast also includes restaurant owner Marikh, orthopedic nurse D'Nysha, commercial real estate manager Seinne and server Valerie. There will also be four Laurens, two Rebeccas and two Brittanys vying for the race car driver's heart. It seems like things will get a little complicated on the first night.
Season 22 of "The Bachelor" will feature 36-year-old Arie searching for his love in a slew of romantic trips to Fort Lauderdale, Paris and Peru. The show will premiere on Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8 P.M. on ABC.
