[via press release from ABC]

ALI BEGINS HER SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL MAN WHEN "THE BACHELORETTE" PREMIERES, MONDAY, MAY 24, ON ABC

Ali's Suitors Are Revealed

What do a handsome entertainment wrestler with an impressive alter ego, a weatherman from Texas who forecasts sunny skies ahead for the Bachelorette and himself, an aspiring screenwriter attempting to script the perfect Hollywood ending, a self-declared ladies' man and a sensitive but strong-willed landscaper all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, when the sixth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres MONDAY, MAY 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Editors note: The program's regular time is 8:00-10:02 p.m., ET, beginning Monday, May 31.

Ali, 25, who most recently was an account manager in on-line advertising from San Francisco, meets 25 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 601," 25 eligible men come from all over to try and win her heart. Kyle, the outdoorsman, tries to reel Ali in right from the start. Jason, a hunky skier, impresses the Bachelorette with a death-defying back flip off the limo, and John C. attempts to take all the other men out of the picture as he gets down on one knee and proposes.

Once inside, Ali 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. Frank, an aspiring writer, shares his inspiring story of how he left his high-paying career to move to Paris and follow his dream. Kirk scores points with a sentimental scrapbook he presents to Ali. But Hunter, a clever Texan, steals the show with a heart-felt hilarious song, accompanying himself on the ukulele.

Tensions mount and sparks fly as the bachelors vie for the first impression rose. Roberto, a romantic Latin bachelor, takes a moment to steal Ali away and teach her some sexy salsa steps. Justin doesn't let a broken foot get in his way, as he rips his shirt open to reveal his professional wrestling alter ego. And Jesse offers a beautiful wooden heart necklace as an original token of his admiration. Finally, Ali must eliminate eight of the 25 men, leaving 17 to compete for her affections and, in the end, her heart.

Ali's 25 suitors are: Chris H., 27, real estate developer from Vancouver, Canada
Chris L., 33, landscaper from Cape Cod, MA
Chris N., 29, entrepreneur from Orlando, FL
