[via press release from ABC]

TWENTY-FIVE BEAUTIFUL BACHELORETTES WILL BE PAGING NEW BACHELOR DOCTOR TRAVIS STORK -- STAT -- AS HE ROMANCES THEM IN PARIS, WHEN �THE BACHELOR� RETURNS TO ABC ON JANUARY 9, 2006

Vanderbilt Medical Center�s Own �Dr. McDreamy� Will Star in the Popular Romance Reality Series, Which Will Be Set -- for the First Time Ever -- Outside the United States, In the Most Romantic City in the World

Travis Stork, a handsome 33-year-old ER doctor who is completing his residency at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, has been selected to star in the eighth edition of �The Bachelor,� when ABC�s popular romance reality series returns to the network on MONDAY, JANUARY 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). For the first time ever the series will be set outside the United States in the most romantic city in the world � Paris!

Travis, who graduated Magna Cum Laude from Duke University and earned his MD from University of Virginia, has a true passion for helping people, but the one thing that is missing is a woman to share his life. Now he will take on that challenge against a spectacular backdrop that will include the Eiffel Tower, the breathtaking Champs Elys�es and the historic Arc de Triomphe.

The beauty of the show, according to Travis, is that it will give him the chance to step back from his career and job and focus on his personal life, concentrating all his attention and energy on meeting some amazing women.

This season �The Bachelor� will return to its popular, traditional roots, highlighting all the romance and fantasy of new relationships. And, what better place for the perfect love story to play out than Paris -- the City of Lights.

The hunky 6�4� doctor is a favorite with all the nurses at Vanderbilt. However, the Ft. Collins, Colorado native, who has a traditional Midwest upbringing, yearns to have the type of relationship that he has seen played out during his parents� 37-year-long romance. Travis considers himself a simple guy with simple pleasures, which he thinks accounts for his being a happy person. When he has time to take off, he�s is a huge outdoors enthusiast. A real devotee of mountain and road biking, he also enjoys kayaking and hiking.

What kind of woman is Travis looking for? Along with such attributes as being genuine, honest and caring, and someone who is somewhat adventurous and athletic, �it�s the woman who catches my eye � maybe with the way she smiles, the way I first react to her. I get that feeling inside you really can�t describe.�

Hosted by Chris Harrison, �The Bachelor� is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions. Mike Fleiss is the executive producer. Lisa Levenson and David Bohnert are co-executive producers.
