U.S. NAVAL LIEUTENANT ANDY BALDWIN, M.D., LOOKS FOR LOVE AND
A FAIRYTALE ENDING WHEN �THE BACHELOR: OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN�
PREMIERES MONDAY, APRIL 2 ON ABC
The 25 Bachelorettes Who Look to Capture the Handsome Doctor�s Heart Are Revealed
What do a woman with strong morals, a daredevil, a voluptuous vixen, a patriotic medical student, a sorority girl with a secret and a party girl who�s not afraid to get down and dirty all have in common?
They�re all in the hunt for U.S. Naval Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, M.D., when the tenth edition of ABC�s popular romance reality series, �The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman,� premieres MONDAY, APRIL 2 (9:45-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
(Editor�s note: The program�s regular run time is 9:30-11:00 p.m., ET.)
U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, M.D., 30, a handsome undersea medical officer for a special operations dive unit stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii � a real-life �officer and a gentleman� � is about to face the most exciting mission of his life: finding true love.
Andy, an accomplished triathlete and winner of recent humanitarian awards for his work in Laos last summer -- on a military mission where he treated over 600 Laotians in remote mountain villages -- begins his marathon run to find the woman of his dreams. In the premiere episode, �1001,� the bachelorettes arrive to party and meet Andy, and are quick to find out that the competition starts immediately � right as they get out of their cars. This time it really is a �first impression� rose that Andy must deliver to one lucky lady as she arrives, and it�s enough to send daggers flying between the 25 new bachelorettes.
Coincidentally, this first night also happens to be Andy�s 30th birthday, and the news spreads like wildfire around the room. The bachelorettes pull out all the stops to impress Andy: Linda, a female body-builder, challenges him to a push-up contest, Stephanie W, an acrobatic bachelorette, is so taken by the Bachelor that she literally does back flips for him in her evening dress in a must-see demonstration, and Tina treats Lieutenant Baldwin to a patriotic serenade of �The Star Spangled Banner.�
The pressure mounts as the evening goes on and sparks fly between two tipsy bachelorettes. Andy must eliminate ten of the 25 women the first night, leaving 15 to compete for his affections. In the end, one woman explodes in a tirade when she misses out on the last rose.
