ABC reveals the identities of its 'The Bachelor 8' bachelorettes


By Reality TV World staff, 12/17/2005 

ABC has revealed the identities of the twenty-five women who will be competing for the heart of 33-year-old ER doctor Travis Stork, the star of the upcoming eighth edition of its The Bachelor reality series

Described by ABC as "Vanderbilt Medical Center's own 'Dr. McDreamy,'" (a play on the nickname given to Patrick Dempsey's hunky character on the network's Grey's Anatomy hit drama) Travis is a handsome 6'4" 33-year-old emergency room doctor who is completing his residency at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

As previously reported, following last spring's disastrous "less formal, no rules" Charlie O'Connell edition, The Bachelor 8 will be going old school and returning to its more traditional format that highlights the romance and fantasy elements of new relationships. As part of the change, The Bachelor 8 was filmed at a 14th-century chateau in Paris, the most romantic city in the world. The overseas location marked that first time that the long-running reality series had filmed someplace other than Los Angeles (The Bachelor 1-6) or New York City (The Bachelor 7.)

As he has since the long-running reality franchise began, Chris Harrison will once again serve as The Bachelor's host. Like previous The Bachelor editions, Travis get the know his twenty-five bachelorettes through a series of solo and group dates -- only this time the sights will include locations like the top of the Eiffel Tower, the breathtaking Champs Elysies, and the historic Arc de Triomphe. Once the bachelor narrows the field to his final few women, everyone will fly back across the Atlantic Ocean for the show's traditional "hometown dates."

The Bachelor 8 will premiere on Monday, January 9 at 10PM ET/PT. The twenty-five bachelorettes -- only twelve of which will receive roses at the end of the premiere -- are:

Allie G., a 33-year-old doctor (oncologist) who currently resides in Delray Beach, FL
