Alana is a 26-year-old photographer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She reminds Chris of Kaitlyn Bristowe and goes Lady & the Tramp for her limo arrival.
"Alana has always taken the road less traveled. Instead of taking the traditional college path after high school, Alana leaned into her desire for adventure and moved to Europe where she enrolled in different programs throughout Europe. She calls this decision her greatest accomplishment yet because it took her on a journey of self-discovery and exploration that really shaped her into the independent woman she is today. Adventure is definitely a key component to Alana's life—her latest one being a move to Toronto completely on a whim. When Alana isn't off exploring the world, she loves spending her free time sipping bubbles at local wineries, painting or cooking, and is here with hopes of finding a man to share in the everyday pleasures of life. Will this journey be the greatest adventure of her life? We can't wait to find out!"
Illeana is 25 and from South Salem, NY. She's a health food developer and Chris says that means she's developing an "energy ball."
"Illeana is a perfect mix of beauty and brains. She is an entrepreneur who recently co-developed her own nutritional snack called "Funky Monkey Energy" and has big dreams of making a name for herself in the health food world. After ending her last relationship of four and a half years and living her best life in Manhattan, Ill eana says she is ready to settle down and find her missing puzzle piece. She has done the work to know exactly what she wants out of her partner and says that first and foremost, she needs someone whose values align with hers. Illeana is the type of woman who would rather cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine and spend quality time together pondering life's unsolvable mysteries than hit the town and go barhopping. She is looking to find her best friend and to create the kind of love that makes you glow from the inside out. She says she loves love more than anything and knows she's found it when she and her man feel invincible to the world."
Kristin is 27 and an attorney from Virginia Beach, VA who Chris says is not to be debated, because she will win.
"Kristin is a very smart and successful attorney who says that while she dreams of finding her perfect match, her busy career and professional ambitions haven't left her with too much spare time to date. Kristin is truly wifey material—not only is she beautiful, but she is fiercely loyal, intelligent and credits her unmatched work ethic to her incredible mother who raised her. Kristin says she is definitely the party starter and needs a man who won't be intimidated by her natural magnetism. She also needs someone who isn't afraid of being openly affectionate because with Kristin, personal space goes out the window. Kristin wants a man who will let her be their biggest cheerleader and who will in turn be the same for her. If you want to get an edge with Kristin, she says pink roses are the way to her heart, but maybe a red rose from Matt may suffice in this case."
Marylynn is a 28-year-old event coordinator from Studio City, CA. She's one of the more emotional women who is no stranger to tears and is up there with Ashley I. She has a really moving childhood story and accidentally finds herself in a big feud, "some unexpected roommate drama."
"Marylynn needs a man who is ready to commit and not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeves. She wants a stable man who will love her unconditionally, someone who is loyal to the core and who would be a rock for her when life throws the inevitable curve ball their way. In five years, Marylynn hopes to be married with two or more rescue dogs, and living a productive, inspirational, healthy life with the support of her man by her side. She hopes to start several companies focused around promoting environmental welfare and healthy lifestyle choices, and will need her soul mate to share her goals of making the world a better place. She doesn't see herself with anyone who is lazy, introverted or someone who doesn't prioritize their heath and hygiene. She says that finding her life partner has always been a top priority and that experiencing true and undeniable love is the ultimate goal because it is something so special and unique. Will Matt be Marylynn's person, or will her search for the perfect love story continue on?"
Sydney is a 28-year-old marketing specialist from Nashville, TN. She doesn't shy away from telling it like it is and is very blunt but a true romantic at heart. She's allergic to avocados.
"Sydney is a strong, opinionated woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to vocalize it. If her family could use one word to describe Sydney, it would be "opinionated"…and Sydney wholeheartedly agrees saying her role in life is to give facts over being a shoulder to cry on. Sydney may come off as tough, but just because she's blunt doesn't mean she isn't also a romantic at heart. Though Sydney says she is not your typical southern belle, she says she is a traditional romantic and hopes to find a man who will put effort into wooing her. She has always believed that opposites attract and dreams of finding a man with a mellow demeanor to balance out her outgoing personality. She hates awkward dinner conversation and says a man with big goals for the future is her biggest turn-on. Sydney wants someone who will bring what she does to a relationship—love, loyalty, motivation and support—and says that she's not looking to settle for any average Joe Schmoe. Nothing bothers Sydney more than people who beat around the bush, so let's hope Matt is ready to get straight to the point with Sydney!"
Saneh is a 25-year-old IT consultant from Denver, CO. She's got a big personality and a lot of energy and has a very creative limo entrance.
"Beautiful Saneh has a contagious zest for life! From swimming with sharks in South Africa to being inducted into the University of Florida Hall of Fame for outstanding leadership, service and academic achievement, nothing is out of reach for her. This energetic Florida native has a thousand-watt smile and is here to find a man she can proudly bring home to meet her family in Florida. After learning a lot from her last serious relationship, Saneh has a refreshed outlook on life and feels that Matt could be that perfect addition she has been looking for. She describes her perfect man as selfless, ambitious, considerate and empathetic. She loves any activity that puts her in the great outdoors—from hiking and kayaking to sunrise yoga at Red Rocks Amphitheater—and hopes to find a partner who will always be up for an adventure with her. Saneh wants nothing more than to go on the adventure of a lifetime with the hopes of finding a love that will be life-changing. We hope so too!"
Kimberly is a 28-year-old airline recruiter from Seattle. She has a "fishy" entrance, if you ask Chris.
"Kimberly is the kind of woman who radiates joy and happiness everywhere she goes. She is a carefree soul who would have no problem picking up her life and moving to a new town on a whim. Kimberly describes herself as funny, loyal and trustworthy, and will be the voice of reason and shoulder to cry on if need be. She values a healthy lifestyle and wants to find a man whose enthusiasm for staying fit aligns with hers. She also loves picnics, good snacks and when the weather permits, going on the hunt for Seattle's best sunset viewpoints. When it comes to relationships, Kimberly always tries to keep it real and is not afraid to step away if her expectations aren't being met. She's looking for a grown man who will be passionate about his career while also supporting Kimberly in hers. The one thing Kimberly cannot make work under any circumstance…NO CATS!"
Emani is 25 and from Albuquerque, NM. She's a realtor who had to learn how to hug before she came on the show, since she's not so good with hugging.
"Emani is the first to admit that she isn't an outwardly "lovey-dovey" kind of person, but that doesn't mean that her desire for love doesn't run deep. She describes herself as goofy, selfless and sensitive, and while she hasn't had much luck finding love thus far, she is here hoping that meeting Matt can change that. Emani is looking for someone caring, driven and to be her best friend. She's the kind of woman who would rather go to a sophisticated jazz bar over a baseball game and whose dream date consists of sharing a bottle of fine red wine and spending the night immersed in meaningful conversation. She loves to cook and says that her favorite way to show her man how she feels is through an old-fashioned, home-cooked meal. Emani says her turnoffs are emotional instability, physical instability and financial instability … really, instability of any kind. One thing that is very important to Emani is that the man she brings home is willing to love her family as much as she does. If the family says it is a no-go, then unfortunately that is where the journey ends."
Corrinne is a 22-year-old marketing manager at her family's Italian restaurant in Pomfret, CT. Her job is to reply to Yelp reviews, but she has an interesting story about health issues she had as a child.
"Happy with her life in Connecticut, Corrinne is ready to find someone that would be a great addition to her already-wonderful world. Corrinne comes from a big, loving family and does marketing for the family business—a high-end Italian restaurant! She strives to surround herself with positivity and says that she is at her very happiest sitting at the beach with the sun shining down on her face. Corrinne is looking for a man who will prioritize settling down over having a busy nightlife and partying. She wants someone who is serious about creating a life with her and who will match her unwavering loyalty. Her dream man will support her in both her personal and professional endeavors, and will let her do the same for him saying that she "always wants to water him so that he is constantly growing as a human, son, friend, etc." Corrinne wants someone who is loyal through the ups and downs, and promises that as a wife, her partner will never have to question that she is always on their team."
Casandra is a 25-year-old social worker from Newport Beach, CA. She's sweet and makes a bold outfit choice on night one.
"Casandra always told herself she would finish college and then settle down. Now that she has her master's degree in social work, it's time to find LOVE! Casandra says coming on "The Bachelor" is the biggest risk she's ever taken for love, but she believes she and Matt have a lot in common. As a partner, she is loyal, compassionate and caring. She is ready to find a man who she has a genuine connection with, and while she is a city girl at heart, she says she is truly at her best stargazing and eating s'mores in her sweatpants with no makeup on. She is confident, laid-back and says that guys like the fact that they can take her anywhere and don't have to worry about entertaining her. She has found it hard to find the one, but she says Matt is definitely her type and she is willing to take a chance if it means finding forever love."
Carolyn is 30 and from Newburyport, MA. She is a journalist and she's been engaged twice before, so Chris says she knows what she's looking for. "She has an edge to her," he says.
"Though she is fiercely independent, Carolyn is a serial monogamist who says she has always been the caretaker in her relationships. Now, she is looking for a man who will want to take care of her but will also appreciate her for the self-sufficient woman she is. Carolyn wants a bold man who won't be afraid to challenge her and call her out if she needs it. She needs someone who will appreciate her intensity and bring an equal amount of passion to the relationship. The ultimate date for Carolyn is something spontaneous that involves traveling because she says, "jumping into unfamiliar territory together is a great way to bond and get to know each other on a deeper level." Carolyn's ultimate turnoff is a man who spends all their time together name-dropping or bragging about his money, and instead hopes to find someone with a warm heart who is passionate about philanthropy. Carolyn admits that when she feels that spark, she falls hard and fast, and she can't wait to see what happens when she meets Matt that first night."
Amber is 30 and she's a nursing student from Cosa Mesa, CA. She's a single mom with a 13-year-old son named Noah. Instead of saying "excuse me," she apparently uses the word "meow."
"Amber is a vivacious single mother whose world revolves around her 13-year-old son. Currently, her typical Saturday night consists of dinner and board games with her son or soaking in the Jacuzzi with close friends. Amber finds it hard to date as a single mom, but now she is ready to focus on herself for the first time in a long time. When asked what her physical type is, Amber enthusiastically says "MATT JAMES!" She is looking for a man with whom to travel the world and eventually have more kids. She is caring, trustworthy and open-minded, but admittedly is also stubborn and a bit impatient. She says she is terrified of being on the edge of cliffs, but she is ready to take the leap head first into this once-in-a-lifetime adventure and hopefully return home with the man of her dreams by her side."
Alicia is a 24-year-old professional ballerina from New York City with a crazy family story.
"Alicia is a hard-working and incredibly driven woman. When she was only 13, she began pursuing her career as a professional ballerina. Through years of dedication and commitment to her craft, she is now proudly living her dream, dancing for the prestigious Dance Theater of Harlem. While it took a ton of hard work to get where she is, Alicia wouldn't change a thing. After years of being unlucky in love, Alicia is ready to find a man who will absolutely desire her. Her ultimate date consists of a day on the boat drinking champagne and eating from a thoughtfully curated charcuterie board followed by shopping and a romantic dinner at one of New York's best rooftop bars. She describes herself as very confident but not sappy. She's not looking for anyone who relies on cheesy pickup lines and would prefer a man who gets straight to the point. For Alicia, it's all about finding a handsome, intelligent and respectful man who is not afraid to put in the hard work to make their love go the distance."
