When I heard that ABC.com had finally announced the cast for this season’s Bachelorette, I immediately logged on to make make my preliminary choices based solely on appearance and the answers to a handful of questions. It’s important we make snap judgements in moments like these.
Before I scrolled through an entourage of men who looked the exact same as the one before, I marveled at the fact that we have trudged through 10 seasons of The Bachelorette. Just for fun, I tried to name all the preceding bachelorettes. You never know when this trivia might come in handy.
I wrote down my train of thought for your reading pleasure:
Tricia, brunette girl who didn’t choose hot Matt, Jen the Firestone girl, Ali of E! Television fame, I heart Roberto, Ashley and her sonogram, Canada girl, DeAhnna, Andi, Des, Emily.
Excluding the fact that I couldn’t remember Jillian’s name and that this list is not in chronological order, I’m proud of myself. If you ever need to phone a friend from a game show, and the question is about pop culture nonsense or ’80s trivia, I’m your gal.
This season’s crop of bachelors have definitely been filtered through a wish list. Britt and Kaitlyn have specific desires when it comes to their suitors. They want them tall, dark and beefy with extremely white teeth. Bonus points if your career has something to do with fitness or showing off your body.
