The 25 Bachelorettes Who Look to Capture the Sexy Entrepreneur's Heart Are Revealed

One Additional Mystery Woman Will Be Revealed on the Premiere

What do an aspiring wedding dress designer, a former cheerleader with some over the top acrobatics, a sexy, fun-loving woman who is obsessed with a red hot bestseller about bondage and a beautiful blonde who, although she was born with one-arm, has more than enough heart and self confidence to win Sean's heart, all have in common? They all have their sights set on moving to Dallas with the Bachelor, Sean Lowe, when the 17th edition of ABC's popular romance reality series, "The Bachelor," premieres MONDAY, JANUARY 7 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Sean, 28, the handsome business entrepreneur from Dallas, meets 26 potential soul mates as he begins his exciting search for true love. In the premiere, "Episode 1701," Sean prepares for the night of his life as the 26 beautiful bachelorettes, all clamoring to meet him, begin to arrive.

Jackie, a beautiful makeup artist, makes sure Sean will remember her, kissing him emphatically on the cheek. Robyn, an oil field account manager and former cheerleader, falls for the Bachelor right from the start, back flipping out of the limo -- but tumbles right on her rear. Kelly, the attractive cruise ship singer, looks to her possible future with Sean and croons an original love song to him. Sexy Ashley P. stuns the Bachelor with her in depth knowledge of the bestselling novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, while pulling a tie out of her cleavage. Lindsay is all ready to walk down the aisle, dressed in a bridal gown, and steals the first real kiss of the night.

Sean shakes up the night when he decides to hand out early roses to women with whom he has an immediate connection. But not all the women are that lucky and wonder how to impress him to get a coveted rose. Sarah reaches out with honesty and sincerity, not afraid to show her vulnerability. But Lindsay decides the best way to handle the situation is to come on strong.

Finally, after Sean's first rose ceremony, 19 women will remain to compete for his affection and, in the end, his heart.
