The inclusion of the word "may" suggested a few of the women may not actually make it to Night 1 ofThe Bachelor, especially since a typical The Bachelor or The Bachelorette season usually only begins with 25 or 30 contestants.
But the network confirmed on Wednesday, December 20 that all 32 of those women will, in fact, be appearing on Joey'sThe Bachelor season.
The women range in age from 23 to 31-years-old. Only four of the ladies are age 30 or older.
The Bachelor fans were already introduced to one of Joey's bachelorettes -- Lea Cayanan, a 23-year-old account manager from Waipahu, HI -- during the finale of Charity's The Bachelorette season.
Joey and Lea introduced themselves to each other in front of a screaming studio audience shortly after Joey was first announced as The Bachelor star.
The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer gave Lea a special envelope -- containing something that will "help" Lea and also shake up the season, during the finale -- and he asked her not to open it until Night 1 of filming.
"I don't know [what was in the card]. It threw me for a loop," Joey admitted during the August 29 episode of the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast, which is co-hosted by Bachelor in Paradise spouses Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt.
"I like that they are trying to change things up, I really do. But I was like, 'What are we doing with the card? What does this mean?'"
Joey recalled how Leah was "amazing" and "funny," especially when she joked to him on After the Final Rose, "These girls are going to hate me when I walk into this house."
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Joey's bachelorettes started arriving in Los Angeles on September 15 and The Bachelor season began filming with Night 1's cocktail party on September 19.
