Harris -- a 29-year-old restaurant designer from Vancouver, Canada who was rejected by Jason Mesnick, the star of The Bachelor's most recent thirteenth season -- will be the first bachelor or bachelroette in the long-running ABC reality dating franchise's history to start with 30 suitors instead of the usual 25.
While her first 25 bachelors will arrive in the traditional way via limousine before the premiere episode's cocktail party commences, five additional suitors will arrive late and crash the party.
During the cocktail party, the men will pull out all the stops to impress Harris in an attempt to land the "first impression rose" and an opportunity to remain in the competition for her heart.
At the end of the cocktail party, Harris will eliminate 10 of her initial suitors -- leaving a field of 20 to compete for her affection over the course of the show's fifth-season.
Following its premiere episode, two-hourThe Bachelorette fifth-season episodes will air in the show's regular Mondays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot beginning May 25.
