25 Women Competing in 13th 'The Bachelor' Unveiled
The identity of 25 women who have registered themselves to be the potential one true love of "The Bachelor" Jason Mesnick has been unveiled. For the first time in the history of the show, the line-up will include single mothers, Megan, Stacia, Stephanie and Treasure who also have successful careers.
In the press release, issued by ABC, the group of women will among others, consist of "a Brazilian seductress who aggressively pursues the Bachelor, a woman who is one of Jason's biggest fans and thinks she knows him better than himself, a gorgeous pageant queen who can't wait for motherhood, a clever Canadian gal who wants to put Jason to an unusual test and a voluptuous free spirit who has her eye on Jason to fulfill her dream of a big, international-type family."
Finished in taping for the show's new season, Mesnick, who has a 3-year-old son named Tyler, said previously that he was engaged with one of the ladies. "I found exactly what I was hoping for, what I was looking for. I'm completely in love," he told People.
The 13th edition of the reality show will be back on ABC on January 5 at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere special. In the premiere episode, "1301," Jason prepares for the night of his life, as the 25 beautiful bachelorettes, who can think of nothing but him, begin to arrive.
