Ashley Hebert's search for love will be a global journey.

ABC has announced Hebert will visit Thailand, Hong Kong, Taipei, and the Fiji Islands, in addition to Hollywood and Las Vegas in the U.S., for "intimate and adventurous dates" during The Bachelorette's seventh season, which will premiere Monday, May 23 at 9PM ET/PT.

Despite the various locations, The Bachelorette's seventh season will begin in a familiar setting with the 27-year-old former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette, who is finishing her degree in dentistry, greeting her 25 eligible suitors for the first time prior to the season's initial cocktail party.

Several of Hebert's bachelors will attempt to make memorable first impressions during their arrivals -- including a chef who snags a kiss, a Wall Street banker who offers her a pair of ballet tickets, a winery owner who pours her a special vintage glass of wine, a former professional basketball player who recites a poem he wrote for her, and a mysterious suitor who wears an opera mask upon his exit from the limo.

In addition, Hebert will also encounter one suitor who a former The Bachelor cast member has previously warned her could be on the show for the wrong reasons. 

Once the cocktail party begins, the competition to impress Hebert only intensifies, as a "successful and upbeat" solar energy executive attempts to calm her insecurities, a "clever" man introduces her to his mother via speakerphone, and a bachelor displays a romantic message from a distance on giant cue cards. 

In addition, another suitor serenades Hebert with a guitar, the masked man suggests she should "appreciate the person he is inside," and The Bachelorette star begins to question the accuracy of her earlier warning after being impressed with how genuine, handsome and charming her "wrong reasons" bachelor seems to be, according to ABC.

However, the mood becomes quite serious when host Chris Harrison arrives and reveals it's time for Hebert to present one of the men with a first impression rose -- causing one man to drink too much in attempt to alleviate his nerves, a situation in which Hebert takes "drastic measures." She'll then award the special rose to a "charming" bachelor who "took a risk" during the night.

The premiere will conclude with Hebert whittling her 25 bachelors down to 18.

According to ABC, some of the U.S-based dates Hebert and her bachelors will embark on include a solo date in which she a suitor fly to Las Vegas to plan a real Vegas wedding day and have a "romantic" dinner in the middle of the lake at the Bellagio Las Vegas, a group date in which 12 bachelors audition to appear onstage with Herbert during the Jabbawockeez dance show in Las Vegas and enjoy a private concert by Colbie Caillat afterward, a solo date featuring a flash mob performing a hip-hop routine and live concert by Far East Movement, and a group date that requires ten bachelors to perform in front of an audience during a Bachelorette roast.

Hebert's around-the-world dates will include renovating a local orphanage in Phuket, Thailand on a group date; shopping and sightseeing in an outdoor marketplace and ancient temple in Chiang Mai during a one-on-one date; watching her bachelors compete (poorly, in the case of one man who ends up in the emergency room) against each other in Muay Thai boxing during a group date; spending the day on a traditional junk boat for dinner in Kowloon, Hong Kong with one lucky bachelor; and exploring the Longshan Temple in Chiang Kai Shek Square, Taiwan during a group date.

The final three men will then have "exotic" overnight dates with Hebert in the "idyllic" Fiji Islands.

Following its premiere, two hour The Bachelorette seventh-season episodes will begin airing in their regular Mondays at 8PM ET/PT broadcast time slot on May 30.
