ABC reveals 25 of 'The Bachelor' star Sean Lowe's 26 new bachelorettes

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/05/2012 

ABC has revealed the identities of 25 of the 26 bachelorettes competing for Sean Lowe's heart on The Bachelor's seventeenth season, which will premiere on Monday, January 7 at 8PM ET/PT.

The Bachelor's seventeenth season will begin with the 28-year-old business entrepreneur from Dallas, TX, arriving at the Malibu mansion and being introduced to his 26 bachelorettes -- including a prior The Bachelor contestant "mystery woman" who's revealed in the show's premiere; Jackie, a makeup artist who kisses Lowe on the cheek; Robyn, an oil field account manager and former cheerleader who falls on her butt upon stepping out of the limo; Kelly, a cruise ship singer who sings him a song; and Paige Vigil, a "Super Fan" who briefly competed on this past summer's edition of Bachelor Pad.

Lowe will also get to meet Ashley P., who reveals her in depth knowledge of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey while pulling a tie out from within her cleavage, and Lindsay, who is already dressed in a bridal gown and snags the first kiss of the night.

According to ABC, the competition to win Lowe's heart heats up quickly during the initial cocktail reception, which will feature Lowe handing out roses early to women with whom he had felt an instant connection. After those special handouts, Sarah decides to become vulnerable and open up to Lowe with honesty while Lindsay determines she should come on strong.

The premiere will conclude with Lowe whittling his 26 bachelorettes down to 19 during the season's first Rose Ceremony.

While ABC has yet to identify her, the 26th "mystery woman" bachelorette is reportedly Kacie Boguskie, who competed on Ben Flajnik's sixteenth edition of The Bachelor.
