It is that time of year again, Bachelor time! Sorry for the delay, the Bachelor contestant bios always come out around finals time (only one more semester.) Juan Pablo has quite the group of Bachelorettes. I am even more excited to live-tweet the show (@BachelorExpert.)
Who are "The Bachelor" contestants? I went ahead and included my thoughts about the contestant bios below.
Occupation: Communications Director
Hometown: Tampa, FL
Favorite Book: The Bible
Favorite Flower: Stargazer Lilies
Top 3 All-Time Favorite Movies: Home Alone 2, Elf, Titanic
She lives in Tampa (love that place,) seems to have a legitimate job and has a variety with her movies. Also in her bio, she references an "abuela" and "abuelo" the similar heritage could bring them together.
Occupation: Assistant District Attorney
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
3 Best Attributes: I'm loyal, I love my family, I'm feisty
Greatest Achievement: Becoming an attorney
Favorite Sports: Tennis, golf
Favorite Television Show: Scandal
She loves Scandal, so basically I love her and Scandal. I bet she is very smart and feisty means sass, and I love sass. I am guessing Andi will bring it.
Occupation: Account Manager
Hometown: Miami, FL
Top 3 All-Time Movies: John Q, The Notebook, Home Alone 2
Favorite Flower: Orchids
Adventurous or Conservative? Adventurous
Chantel looks fabulous in her coral. She has a huge advantage by living in Miami.
Occupation: Science Educator
Hometown: Lexington, OH
Favorite Actress: Sarah Jessica Parker
Favorite Author: J.K. Rowling, Kristin Hannah
Favorite Snacks: Fruit. Cheese. Carrots. Frozen grapes.
Hot Weather or Cold Weather? Hot
So she is a science teacher? The midwest is represented this season too!
Occupation: Marketing Manager
Hometown: Aurora, IL
Favorite Flower: Orchid
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: 1 hr and 20 min.
Favorite Snack: Apples and Peanut Butter
Apples, peanut butter and marketing, what can I say snarky about that?
Hometown: Sacramento, CA
Favorite boardgame: Clue
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: One hour, no more than that.
Favorite Snack: Fruit
I figured Clare would be from SLC, because that is where all gorgeous thirty something hairstylists live, right? I like that she said, "one hour, no more than that," and she is even a hairstylist.
Occupation: Psychiatric Nurse
Hometown: Litchfield, IL
Favorite holiday: Christmas
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: 30 Minutes
Food dislike: Not a big sushi fan
Danielle I hope to see you diffuse some mental breakdowns or fights. ABC should pay her for the environment she is about to go into. 30 minutes to get ready, she seems very laid back which could be great for Juan Pablo.
Occupation: First Grade Teacher
Hometown: Forty Fort, PA
Longest Relationship: 8 years
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: one hour
Favorite Food: Seafood
Coral is quite the trend with these ladies. 27 is a good age for the show and since she is a first grade teacher we do not have to worry about her liking kids.
Occupation: Medical Sales Rep
Hometown: Iowa City, IA
Favorite Magazines: Self, Glamour
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: an hour
Favorite sports team: University of Iowa Football Team
I commend her for her normal job title and turquoise tank.
Occupation: Dog Lover & Director of Business Development
Hometown: Conyers, GA
Favorite Food: Steak and Potato
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: an hour & 1/2
Favorite Holiday: Christmas
"Dog lover?" The scoop is she is a Director of Business Development and volunteers at Angels Among Us (dog rescue.) Either way, the greatness of that coming across my screen is perfection.
Occupation: Interior Designer
Hometown: Rockford, IL
Height: 5' 8.5"
Favorite Flower: Snap dragons
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: 1.5 hours. 45 if necessary
Favorite Board Game: Jumanji
I love her red hair and another midwestern girl. The last interior designer we had turned out well. I like that she said she could get ready in 45 minutes.
Occupation: Nursing Home Owner
Hometown: Antelope Acres, CA
Favorite Snacks: Hot Cheetos
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: 45 minutes
Favorite Magazine: People
Lacy is going to be the one with an inspirational story, I can already tell. Her job title shows she has a big heart. If she "is not here to make friends" my heart will be broken.
Occupation: Personal banker
Hometown: Wagener, SC
Favorite Group Activities: Camping, bowling, kayaking
City or Country Person? American by birth, Southern by the grace of God! Country all the way.

So far Maggie is very stylish and is a southern belle. I am sure her accent will win over Juan and her accessories will win over me.
Occupation: Real estate agent
Hometown: Martha's Vineyard, MA
Pets: One dog
Favorite Music: Country
All-Time Favorite Movies: Top Gun, The Notebook, The Vow
Renee fooled me, she looks like a Cali girl.

It is not a party until we have a Canadian, I cannot wait for the opera singing mixed with Juan's accent.
Occupation: Personal trainer
Hometown: Sutter, CA
Favorite Music: Country
All-Time Favorite Movies: The Breakfast Club, Man on Fire, Bridesmaids

If Courtney Robertson and Elyse Myers had a baby it would be Valerie. I am sure she will use the personal trainer thing in her favor.
Occupation: Legal Assistant
Hometown: Porto Alegre, Brazil
Pets: One cat
All-Time Favorite Movies: Star Wars,The Lord of the Rings, Mean Girls
Favorite Artists: Andy Warhol
Oh snap, I wonder if she will speak Spanish or Portuguese, in addition to English. If she speaks Spanish around other girls, it will be drama. I like her style so far.
