Sarah Vendal is one of 30 bachelorettes competing on Season 21 of The Bachelor.

Sarah is a 26-year-old grade school teacher from Newport Beach, CA. The beauty -- who has a shorter haircut than most of the girls, 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.

Sarah will have a cute and thoughtful entrance on Night 1, so she'll definitely catch Nick's attention. But does she have what it takes to win his heart?

Below is a list of six facts Reality TV World has compiled about Sarah Vendal:

- She considers herself socially Democratic and economically Republican when talking politics.

- Forget red roses. The bachelorette's favorite flower is a white rose because she says it's gorgeous, simple and romantic.

- If Sarah could be any fictional character, she'd have a tough time deciding between Meredith Grey, Olivia Pope or Carrie Bradshaw.

- Sarah loves to gamble as long as she's winning. She knows when to walk away when she's up money.

- The most outrageous thing she's ever done -- besides The Bachelor -- is move to New York City.

- A guy once named a star after Sarah, just like in a movie she loves called A Walk to Remember. He came up with the idea all on his own and she calls it the most romantic present she's ever received.
