"The Bachelor" Juan Pablo: Meet the Contestants

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. 



Age: 24
Occupation: Communications Director
Hometown: Tampa, FL
Height: 5'4"
Tattoos: None
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. 
Age: 26
Occupation: Nanny
Hometown: Orland Park, IL
Height: 5'6"
Tattoos: One
Favorite Author: Jodi Picoult
Religion: Catholic
Top 3 All-Time Favorite Movies: 16 Candles, Pretty Woman, Gladiator
I like her loose curls and maroon dress. To be a nanny you have to be very laid back and this could work in her favor, since Juan has Camila. 
Age: 31
Occupation: Massage Therapist
Hometown: Apopka, FL
Height: 5'7"
Tattoos: None 
Favorite Actress: Kate Winslet
"Hot Spot" Clubs or Low-Key Bars?Both!  
Top 3 Favorite Groups/Artists: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Radiohead 
Favorite Sports Team: LA Clippers

BANGS! Amy J I am forever thankful that you brought the bangs back. For the life of me I cannot remember who had bangs on Sean's season, so since Rachel, bang envy has been missing in my life. I also like her teal tank top and everyone is from Florida? At least most of these girls won't have to make too big of a move if they get picked. 


Age: 25
Occupation: Grade School Teacher
Hometown: Roanoke, TX
Height: 5'7"
Tattoos: One
Top 3 All-Time Favorite Movies:Moonrise Kingdom, Beauty and the Beast,The Breakfast Club
Favorite Author: Dr. Seuss
Favorite Sports: Football, basketball, baseball. 

First of all, Ashley I am so glad you spell it like me. Almost always on the show there are weird spellings which really throw my writing off. At first glance, she reminded me of Kacie B. Her loving Dr. Seuss makes sense because she is a teacher. 




Age: 26
Occupation: Assistant District Attorney
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Height: 5'5"
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. 



Age: 27
Occupation: Account Manager
Hometown: Miami, FL
Height: 5'10"
Tattoos: One
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.
Age: 23
Occupation: Police Support Specialist
Hometown: Miami, FL
Height: 5'6"
Tattoos: None
Favorite Board Game: Monopoly
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: As much time as I am given plus a few extra minutes
Favorite Snack: Almonds, Raisins, Pistachios, Walnuts


If you are not from the midwest or the south you are not here to make friends. Another Miami girl, "As much time as I am given plus a few extra minutes." Wow I hope they go wake up the girls in the middle of the night again and say, "you have to be ready now.
Age: 24
Occupation: Science Educator
Hometown: Lexington, OH
Height: 5'3"
Tattoos: None
Favorite Actress: Sarah Jessica Parker
Favorite Author: J.K. Rowling, Kristin Hannah

Hot Weather or Cold Weather? Hot

So she is a science teacher? The midwest is represented this season too!
Age: 24
Occupation: Marketing Manager
Hometown: Aurora, IL
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: Two
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? 

Age: 32
Occupation: Hairstylist
Hometown: Sacramento, CA
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: Two
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.
Age: 25
Occupation: Psychiatric Nurse
Hometown: Litchfield, IL
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: None
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.
Age: 27
Occupation: First Grade Teacher
Hometown: Forty Fort, PA
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: None
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.
Kat

Age: 29
Occupation: Medical Sales Rep
Hometown: Iowa City, IA
Height: 5'7"
Tattoos: One
Favorite Magazines: Self, Glamour
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: an hour

I commend her for her normal job title and turquoise tank.

Hometown: Conyers, GA
Height: 5'10"
Tattoos: One
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.
Age: 23
Occupation: Interior Designer
Hometown: Rockford, IL
Height: 5' 8.5"
Tattoos: Four
Favorite Flower: Snap dragons
Time it takes to get ready for a big night: 1.5 hours.  45 if necessary

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. 


Age: 25
Occupation: Nursing Home Owner
Hometown: Antelope Acres, CA
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: None
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. 
Age: 25
Occupation: Mineral Coordinator
Hometown: Edmond, OK
Height: 5'9"
Tattoos: Three
Pets: One dog
Favorite Flowers: Garden roses and hydrangeas
Favorite Musical Groups/Artists:Coldplay, The Beatles, Dave Matthews Band

Lauren looks a lot like Blakeley. I appreciate Twitter explaining what a
 "mineral coordinator,"is, she is like the female Neil Lane (sort of.) 
Age: 26
Occupation: Music Composer
Hometown: Detroit, MI
Height: 5'4"
Tattoos: Two small ones
Hot-spot clubs or low-key bars? Low-key dive bars
Hot or cold weather? Hot! Tropical!
All-Time Favorite Movies: Anchorman, Life is Beautiful, Shawshank Redemption, The Truman Show

I really like Lauren's shirt and she is very pretty. A music composer who likes anchorman, I am guessing she has a good sense of humor but can be serious as well. 
Age: 24
Occupation: Free Spirit
Hometown: Santa Barbara, CA
Height: 5'9"
Tattoos: Two
Three best attributes: Very outgoing, very ambitious, and very well traveled
Adventurous or Conservative? Adventurous. Without question.
City or country person? Neither. I am an ocean person.

If you click on the girls' names it will take you to their ABC profiles. In addition, Lucy's talked about her "best friend Kate Upton." Between that and "free spirit" I need someone to pick me up off of the ground. 
Age: 24
Occupation: Personal banker
Hometown: Wagener, SC
Height: 5'6"
Tattoos: Four
Favorite Group Activities: Camping, bowling, kayaking
City or Country Person? American by birth, Southern by the grace of God! Country all the way.
All-Time Favorite Movies: Steel Magnolias, Hope Floats, The Notebook

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. 

Age: 26
Occupation: Pediatric nurse
Hometown: Kearney, MO
Height: 5'9"
Tattoos: Four
Pets: One dog
Preferred type of dancing: Is drunk dancing a type?
All-Time Favorite Movies: The Notebook, The Island, Avatar

I love royal blue, she is a pediatric nurse which shows she cares about kids and then "drunk dancing" made me laugh a lot. 


Age: 32
Occupation: Real estate agent
Hometown: Martha's Vineyard, MA
Height: 5'3"
Tattoos: Two
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. 


Age: 29
Occupation: Opera singer
Hometown: Ottawa, Canada
Height: 5'4"
Tattoos: None
City or Country Person? City
All-Time Favorite Movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, Spirited Away, Match Point

It is not a party until we have a Canadian, I cannot wait for the opera singing mixed with Juan's accent. 


Age: 26
Occupation: Personal trainer
Hometown: Sutter, CA
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: Three
Favorite Music: Country
All-Time Favorite Movies: The Breakfast Club, Man on Fire, Bridesmaids
Cold or Hot Weather? Hot

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. 


Age: 24
Occupation: Legal Assistant
Hometown: Porto Alegre, Brazil
Height: 5'5"
Tattoos: One
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. 



Age: 21
Occupation: Former NBA Dancer
Hometown: Shelby Township, MI
Height: 5'10"
Tattoos: None
Favorite Board Game: Sorry and UNO
Phobias: Slightly afraid of heights
Favorite Flower: Gardenia
Favorite Magazines: Elle

I am almost older than Cassandra, which is crazy considering I should be studying for finals instead of writing this post. There are mature 21 year olds out there, but considering I am lucky if I get myself breakfast and don't have pizza for dinner (every night,) I think that it is young to be thrown into a stepmom role. Especially if she is not settled yet, but you never know.


Age: 27
Occupation: Local News Reporter
Hometown: Clermont, FL
Height: 5'6"
Tattoos: None
Favorite Television Show: Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory
Favorite Author: Dr. Seuss
Favorite Snacks: Chips and salsa/guacamole 
Pets: Two Ragdoll cats 

Florida again, I had to Google where Clermont is and it is also near Orlando. The casting agents must have loved the Amy squared. Hopefully they become friends since they live so close together. I know you are not supposed to just a contestant by their puffy off-the-shoulder shirt, so I will wait and see with this one.
