DeANNA BEGINS HER SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL MAN WHEN "THE BACHELORETTE" PREMIERES, MONDAY, MAY 19, ON ABC

The 25 Bachelors Who Look to Capture DeAnna's Heart Are Revealed

What do a sweet single dad, a hunky professional football player who is saving himself for marriage, a handsome science teacher, a sexy professional basketball player loaded with southern charm and an intense romantic who isn't afraid to confront the other men about their intentions all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas, when the fourth edition of the female version of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelorette," premieres MONDAY, MAY 19 (9:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

(Editors note: The program's regular time is 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET, beginning Monday, June 2).

DeAnna, 26, a real estate agent from Newnan, Georgia, meets 25 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 401," 25 eligible men come from all over the country to try and win her heart. Single dad Jason says a tearful goodbye to his three-year-old son as he leaves to meet the woman he hopes will complete his family. Jeremy is convinced before ever laying eyes on DeAnna that they are meant to be together. The bachelors arrive at the villa and are immediately knocked off their feet by DeAnna, stunning in a sexy gold dress.

As the biggest night of her life begins, so does the competition between the men. Paul gives her a twirl; Eric greets her in Greek, while Jesse makes an outrageous fashion statement in florescent sneakers and a flamboyant jacket. As the guys go wild trying to impress DeAnna to get the three "first impression" roses, Luke presents her with a pearl necklace; Jason asks her to dance and Robert, who decides food is the way to a woman's heart � particularly since he's chef -- whips up a special crab cocktail in the mansion's kitchen and presents it with a flourish to the Bachelorette, as the other jealous men look on. On the cool California night, Ryan, who candidly admits that he is saving himself for marriage, hogs a blanket as he talks to DeAnna on the patio, while Spero chivalrously comes rushing in to offer her his jacket.

When only one "first impression" rose is left, the testosterone-fueled battle heats up. Sean shows off his martial arts expertise with an exciting karate move, kicking a lemon off Jesse's head. Brian shows off his six-pack abs, while Chandler shows off his duck calling talents. But Paul, at his outrageous best, jumps into the pool fully clothed and emerges wearing only a tiny bathing suit with DeAnna's name embroidered across the rear.

Tensions mount and sparks fly as the bachelors vie for the first impression rose. Finally, DeAnna must eliminate ten of the 25 men, leaving 15 to compete for her affections and, in the end, her heart.

DeAnna's 25 suitors are:

Brian W. (Texas), 31, high school football coach from Weatherford, TX.

Brian W. (Indiana), 29, computer network consultant from New Castle, IN.

Chandler, 25, insurance representative from Spotsylvania, VA.
