DESIREE BEGINS HER SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL MAN WHEN "THE BACHELORETTE" PREMIERES, MONDAY, MAY 27, ON ABC

Desiree's Suitors Are Revealed... Who is the Man in the Suit of Armor, The Abs Man and the Youngest Man to Ever Climb Out of a Limo?

What do a Cuban Casanova -- who is a gentle giant but might be too good to be true -- a hard charging federal prosecutor, a sexy former pro soccer player who is a single dad, a free spirited drilling fluid engineer with a captivating sense of humor, a self-proclaimed Southern gentleman who also is a single father, and a suave, debonair financial advisor with a dark secret in his past all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock, when the ninth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres on MONDAY, MAY 27 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Desiree, 27, who grew up in a family of modest means but rich in love, meets 25 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 901," 25 eligible men come from all over to try and win Desiree's heart. Immediately the drama and one-upsmanship begin. Desiree's anxiety melts away as soon as the men start to compete to impress her: Larry, a nervous ER doctor, tries to break some romantic dance moves, but he's no Fred Astaire; Nick R., who plies his trade as a professional magician, displays his talents to Desiree; a shirtless Zak W., a hunky oil rig worker, displays an outstanding six-pack to impress the Bachelorette; and Diogo appears like a knight in shining armor - literally. But the one who captures Desiree's heart is our youngest man to ever climb out of a limousine -- Ben's four-year-old adorable son, Brody, who accompanies his single dad.

The battle for Desiree's attention and affection has only begun. The 19 roses come out early. Nick R. sets off a commotion as the men rush to get time alone with the Bachelorette. After Desiree gives out the first rose, a jealous frenzy erupts between the guys. Brad, who is a part-time DJ, sparkles with some hip hop dance moves. Fearless, topless Zak W. strips down to his underwear and dives into the pool. But how will Desiree react to this immodest stunt? Strikingly handsome Juan Pablo, a former pro soccer player, attempts to give the Bachelorette a private dribbling lesson. However, before too long, the rest of the men jump into the action. And Jonathan drops a bombshell when he decides the time is right to invite Desiree into his own special "fantasy suite," which leads to an explosive reaction.

Some bachelors with early roses can relax, but the others are very apprehensive as the season's first rose ceremony begins. Finally, Desiree will have the 19 men who will move into the mansion and continue on the quest for her heart.

Desiree's 25 suitors are:

Ben, 28, an entrepreneur from Dallas, TX
Brad, 27, an accountant from Denver, CO
