Kristina Schulman is one of 30 bachelorettes competing on Season 21 of The Bachelor.

Kristina is a 24-year-old dental hygienist from Lexington, KY. The brunette beauty will be vying for Bachelor Nick Viall's heart when the show premieres Monday, January 2 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Nick will be looking for the love of his life after three failed stints on The Bachelor spinoffs.

Kristina will likely prove that great things come in small packages, as the bachelorette is only 5'2" tall. But does she have what it takes to win Nick's heart and ultimately be "the one?"

Below is a list of six facts Reality TV World has compiled about Kristina Schulman:

- If she could be someone else for just one day, Kristina would pick her biological mother to know what she was going through when Kristina was young and find out if choosing alcohol over her kids was worth it. (Ouch!)

- Kristina would be the fictional character, Fiona, from Shrek if given the option because she has some serious karate moves and is feisty and darling.

- The bachelorette's favorite clothing designer is herself because she ends up making her own outfit if she can't find a great one to wear for a big event.

- Kristina admires her parents most in the world, saying it took courage for them to open their heart and provide a home to four orphans and a life otherwise unobtainable.

- The bachelorette's favorite actor/actress is Meryl Streep because she can adapt to any character assigned and do a wonderful job fulfilling that role.

- Kristina's favorite television show is American Ninja Warrior because she's amazed by what the human body is capable of and it motivates her to work out.
