[via press release from ABC]

BRAD WOMACK BEGINS HIS SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL WOMAN WHEN "THE BACHELOR" PREMIERES, MONDAY, JANUARY 3, ON ABC

The 30 Bachelorettes Who Look to Capture the Sexy Self-Made Entrepreneur's Heart Are Revealed

What do a good natured funeral director, an emotional waitress, a sexy model who is a real vixen, a competitive hairstylist, a sweet children's hospital event planner and a sassy divorcee have in common? They all have their sights set on moving to Austin with the Bachelor, Brad Womack, when "The Bachelor," the 15th edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, premieres MONDAY, JANUARY 3 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Brad, 37, a sexy, self-made successful entrepreneur, meets 30 potential soul mates as he begins his exciting search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 1501," Brad prepares for the night of his life, as the 30 bachelorettes, curious about who the new bachelor is, begin to arrive.

And what a beginning! Chantal wastes no time with pleasantries and, in the name of women everywhere, slaps Brad on the face. This sassy divorcee's painful message for Brad leaves him wondering if she'll ever give him a second chance at love. But there are those who have other things on their minds, as an emotional Melissa, a waitress who serves up plenty of drama, jumps into his arms and Ashley S., a sweet fun-loving girl, playfully grabs his rear end.

As the party begins, the women are impressed with the handsome Bachelor, but tough questions remain about how much he has changed. However Ashley S. is ready to move on and doesn't care about Brad's past. Things get serious and sparks fly when the "first impression" rose is brought out. Raichel, a self-proclaimed "manscaper," not only leaves Brad speechless but hairless, as she demonstrates her talent. Keltie, a Radio City Rockette, teaches the Bachelor some slick dance moves and Madison, a mysterious model, reveals her odd orthodontics - fangs! Will it be love at first bite for her and Brad? But if Madison's motives are somewhat suspect, Emily's are not. The shy blonde seems ready to fall in love, but is she ready to tell Brad about her tragic past and the death of her then fianc�?

After Brad's first rose ceremony, 20 women remain to compete for his affection and, in the end, his heart.

The 30 women are:

Alli, 24, an apparel merchant from Columbus, OH
Ashley H., 26, a dentist from Philadelphia, PA
