The Bachelor star Colton Underwood is gong to have his hands full with 30 bachelorettes when Season 23 premieres on ABC tonight.

Colton is giving love another shot by starring on The Bachelor after having his heart broken on-camera by The Bachelorette Season 14 star Becca Kufrin, and then not seeing his relationship with Tia Booth work out while on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise this past summer.

The 26-year-old charity founder and former professional football player has a group of beautiful and intelligent women, but of course there will be a few quirky suitors among the cast of bachelorettes when Season 23 of The Bachelor premieres Monday, January 7 at 8PM ET/PT.

The premiere will be a special three-hour event as a way to thank viewers from coast-to-coast for their longtime support of the franchise, according to The Bachelor host Chris Harrison.


Colton's lineup of women includes two reigning Miss USA beauty pageant queens, a dog rescuer, a realtor, a speech pathologist, a dental hygienist, an NBA dancer, a deejay, a phlebotomist and so much more.

And per usual, some The Bachelor bachelorettes were given quirky occupations such as "sloth," "Cinderella," and "never been kissed." Colton will have to get to the bottom of what these women are really about, and he will certainly have his hands full.

According to ABC, the ladies will include one pageant queen who calls herself the "hot-mess express," a "confident Nigerian beauty with a loud-and-proud personality," a "deceptively bubbly spitfire" who is hiding a dark family secret, and a California beach blonde who has a secret that ironically may make her the Bachelor's perfect match.

Before Colton's journey begins, he will sit down with Chris for a frank discussion about the backlash he received after being announced as the next The Bachelor star.

Colton will also open up about his alleged readiness to become a husband and his thoughts on the Fantasy Suite dates and their significance.

But after the Night 1 Rose Ceremony, only 23 women will remain in the running. And of course, only one lucky lady will win Colton's final rose, and hopefully, a diamond engagement ring.

Until viewers can begin watching The Bachelor's upcoming "outrageous," "wild" and "gut-wrenching" season, according to Chris, let's learn more about the women who will probably steal the show.
