Maquel Cooper will be opening her heart to Arie Luyendyk Jr. when The Bachelor returns with its 22nd season.

Maquel is a 23-year-old photographer, business owner and model who currently resides in Orem, UT.

The platinum-blonde beauty will be vying for Arie's heart when the show premieres Monday, January 1 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Arie will be looking for his future wife after failing to win Emily Maynard's heart on The Bachelorette's eighth season back in 2012. The pro racing driver turned real estate agent finished as the runner-up behind Jef Holm.

Maquel -- who is hopefully as comfortable on-camera as she is behind the lens -- will probably wow Arie with her good looks on Night 1, but Arie is hoping to find more than just chemistry, so we'll see if these two hit it off.
