[via press release from ABC]

QUINTESSENTIAL BACHELOR CHARLIE O'CONNELL TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME TO DISCOVER IF LOVE IS WAITING FOR HIM WITH 25 BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, AS "THE BACHELOR" PREMIERES ON MONDAY, MARCH 28 ON ABC

Anything can happen as Charlie O'Connell, 29, a self-described fun-loving, "good guy," begins his search for love on the seventh edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelor," premiering with a two-hour special, MONDAY, MARCH 28 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Surprises galore await Charlie and the 25 beautiful bachelorettes in a spontaneous, less formal and "unplugged" version of "The Bachelor," where there are no limos, no gowns and no rules. In this series, the roses can come at any time. Charlie and the women take on Manhattan and each other in a series of fun and exciting dates with roses at stake on every date.

Kara, 26, a nanny from Woodland Hills, California, is the first single mom in "Bachelor" history and just one of the 25 feisty, competitive women - ranging from a labor & delivery nurse and a swimsuit model to a flight attendant and a pro basketball cheerleader -- trying to capture Charlie's heart.

In the premiere episode, things begin with a rapid-dating session that ends with an unexpected elimination in which Charlie needs to immediately say goodbye to five women. By the end of the evening, 12 women will be left to vie for Charlie's attention.

The 25 women are:

Anitra, 29, makeup artist, who currently resides in Manhattan Beach, CA
