Becca Kufrin's season of The Bacheloretteis almost here. It's so close, in fact, that ABC has done the annual Releasing of the Suitors. Twenty-eight gentledudes are trying to make Becca forget all about Arie, and now we know their faces, names, ages, "jobs," hometowns and biographical information.
About those bios: this season ABC broke from tradition and didn't release the bios in the form of questionnaires, which is extremely wack. The questionnaires are always hilarious and absurd and one of the best things about the Bachelor experience, so hopefully they restore them next season.
Still, there's some very fun stuff in here. Some quick takeaways:
1. This season's color is maroon. Four dudes are wearing the titular color of the Barenaked Ladies' 2000 album in their headshots. It's weird, but anything to break up the tyrannical monotony of the gray henley is cool with me.
2. The classic Bachelorette names and jobs are represented. There's a Chase and a Christian and a Connor and a Colton. You already know there's a Blake. Is there a Trent? Of course there's a Trent, silly! Among them are the usual real estate agents and bankers and medical supply salesman.
3. But there are definitely some weirdos in the mix. One guy's job is "colognoisseur." Another's is "social media participant." One guy makes a point to mention he's been growing his hair for 10 years. One kook likes rap and country.
Meet them all in the gallery below.
The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 28 at 8/7c on ABC.
