Photos Of Arie's 'Bachelor' Contestants Have Been Released, So Get To Memorizing Those Names & Faces
It's time to get your premiere party plan finalized, because Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor is on the way. On Friday, photos of Arie's Bachelor contestants were released on People, as well as their names, hometowns, and jobs. When The Bachelor Season 22 premieres on Jan. 1, 2018, the 29 women pictured in the group photograph below will emerge from a limo (not at the same time, of course) and attempt to win over Arie's heart.
This season's roster includes multiple individuals who work in real estate, a sports reporter, social media managers, a restaurant owner, an orthopedic nurse, recruiters, and a physical therapist. All in all, it's a pretty normal list of careers. What a shocking, almost bittersweet turn of events. So uh, if you're looking for the next Tickle Monster, Chicken Enthusiast, or Whaboom, it appears as though it won't happen this season. The Arie Era is upon us, Bachelor Nation, and apparently, there's no room for joke jobs in this era. (But don't worry, there's still plenty of room for corny promo jokes. And thank goodness for that.)
Here is a group shot of all of the contestants hanging out at the Bachelor Mansion with Arie.
Months before People shared The Bachelor Season 22 roster, Bachelor expert Reality Steve revealed the contestants' first and last names, as well as their social media handles. And now that the list has officially been released, it's time to scroll through Reality Steve's list. Thanks to Reality Steve, the bios released by The Bachelor, and unlocked Instagram accounts, fans can get to know the cast a bit before the show begins.
