ABC ANNOUNCES THE BACHELORS FOR FIFTH EDITION OF THE BACHELORETTE

JILLIAN BEGINS HER SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL MAN WHEN "THE BACHELORETTE" PREMIERES, MONDAY, MAY 18, ON ABC

For the First Time Ever, 30 Bachelors Look to Capture the Bachelorette's Heart

Jillian's Suitors Are Revealed

What do a handsome southern charmer with a foot obsession, a sophisticated Latin lover who doesn't mind rubbing other men the wrong way, a soulful country singer with bad boy appeal, a hunky all-American pilot, a confident Alpha male who isn't afraid to stir up trouble and a charming country boy with a heart of gold all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, when the fifth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Editors note: The program's regular time is 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET, beginning Monday, May 25.

Jillian, 29, a restaurant designer from Vancouver, Canada, meets 30 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 501," 30 eligible men come from all over the country to try and win her heart. First out of the limo, Kiptyn, a California business developer, wows Jillian with his amazing good looks and quiet charm, but this hottie might just break her heart, and Bryan, a hunky high school coach from Oklahoma, literally scoops her up in his arms to start the evening.

Once inside, Jillian lives every woman's dream� surrounded by 25 handsome men � all there just for her. As the biggest night of her life begins, so does the competition between the men. Juan, a general contractor, tries to woo her with his Latin style, country crooner Wes charms Jillian with a song. But will break dance instructor Michael destroy Greg, the entrepreneur, as the two face off in heated dance-off?

Then, when five striking handsome late arrivals crash the party, Jillian becomes the first Bachelorette to have 30 suitors battle over her. Tanner P, an engaging Texan financial analyst, reveals to Jillian that he is secretly obsessed with her feet. What has the Bachelorette gotten herself into? And Ed, a wealthy technology consultant from Chicago, makes an impact with his understated confidence.

Tensions mount and sparks fly as the bachelors vie for the first impression rose. Finally, Jillian must eliminate ten of the 30 men, leaving 20 to compete for her affections and, in the end, her heart.

Adam, 27, Olympic cyclist from Long Beach, CA. Brad, 27, financial advisor from Chicago, IL. Brian, 32, IT consultant from Atlanta, GA. Bryan, 28, high school coach from Lawton, OK.
