Now that we are getting close to the premiere of The Bachelor with Zach Shallcross, ABC is starting to lift the veil on a few things. Take, for example, the roster of women who are going to be taking part in the season.
So who do we have this time around? Think in terms of marketing executives, a therapist, influencers, and even a rodeo racer! That has to take the cake for the most interesting job this season, but let’s hope that the producers don’t drown it in a sea of shtick.

A few things to note
For starters, why does Christina Mandrell have her full name in there? Feels leg she’s trying to get a leg up on the name recognition here. (Then again, her last name does that already — she’s related to Barbara Mandrell.) Also, remember from the trailers that there’s a contestant from the past who may try to join the show during the season — and as you could imagine, that does not go over well with the women.
