ABC has revealed the identities of the bachelorettes competing for Juan Pablo Galavis' heart on The Bachelor's eighteenth season, which will premiere on Monday, January 6 at 8PM ET/PT.

The Bachelor's eighteenth season will begin with the 32-year-old single dad from Miami, FL, arriving at the Malibu mansion and being introduced to 27 bachelorettes -- including a former NBA dancer who has supermodel looks but is a shy single mom, a "sexy" hairstylist who tries to hide the pain of losing her father, a "dedicated" first-grade teacher who is convinced her fate is to be with the Bachelor, a world-class opera singer, and "a flower child."

Juan Pablo will encounter some interesting introductions from the ladies as the new The Bachelor star.

Nurse Nikki will present a stethoscope to Juan Pablo so he can listen to her heart beat, "flower child" Lucy will arrive barefoot, dancer Kat will show off her salsa moves, music composer Lauren S. will peddle in on a "piano bike" while playing her own composition, Kelly will bring her dog Molly with her to meet Juan Pablo, and Clare will deliver "the jaw-dropping moment of the night" when she appears to arrive seven months pregnant, according to ABC.

During the initial cocktail reception, Juan Pablo will throw a dance party in attempt to calm the bachelorettes' nerves. However, tensions will still be high when he determines whom to give his first-impression rose to.

The premiere will conclude with Juan Pablo whittling his bachelorettes down to 18 during the season's first Rose Ceremony.
