ABC ANNOUNCES THE BACHELORETTES FOR THE 11TH EDTION OF "THE BACHELOR"

BRAD WOMACK BEGINS HIS SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL WOMAN WHEN "THE BACHELOR" PREMIERES, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, ON ABC

The 25 Bachelorettes Who Look to Capture the Sexy Texan's Heart Are Revealed

What do an eye-catching beauty who has a secret past, an outspoken vixen dubbed "McNasty" and a devout Christian woman who is also a streaker all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelor, Brad Womack, when the 11th edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelor," premieres with a 90-minute special, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (9:30-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

(Editors note: The program's regular run time is 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET, which begins on Monday, October 1.)

Brad, a successful entrepreneur from Austin, Texas, meets 25 potential soul mates as he begins his exciting search for true love. In the premiere episode, "1101," he happily moves into his Malibu bachelor pad and prepares to search for the woman of his dreams. From the minute they meet him, the 25 women are knocked off their feet by the sexy, handsome Bachelor. DeAnna wows the Bachelor right out of the limo by introducing herself in Greek. And in another unforgettable moment, Erin and Hillary tell Brad about freak sports injuries -- Erin broke her face with a football, and Hillary her nose while she was bowling. Jessica, a news anchor, interviews Brad "anchorwoman"-style, until Susan interrupts with some breaking news. And Kristy, an acupuncturist, diagnoses Brad by "examining" in his tongue.

Then the competition gets physical: Jenni, a professional cheerleader, does a special dance for her man, Juli twists herself into a pretzel while, Morgan shows off her webbed toes. Fellow Texan Lindsey tries to bond with Brad by presenting him with a yellow rose and serenading him with "The Yellow Rose of Texas," and a tipsy Melissa runs around the party searching for her lost fake breast enhancer. Then the party takes a crazy turn when statuesque blond Mallory strips down to her bikini and jumps into the pool. Tensions mount and sparks fly as the bachelorettes vie for the first impression rose. Finally, Brad must eliminate ten of the 25 women, leaving 15 to compete for his affections and, in the end, his heart.

The 25 women are:

Bettina, 27, a realtor who currently resides in Washington, DC.

DeAnna, 25, a realtor who currently resides in Neunan, GA.
