The Bachelorette premieres in less than two weeks, and Becca Kufrin's cast of bachelors has formally been announced.

ABC has revealed the identities of the 28 suitors who will be competing to win the heart of the 28-year-old Minnesota publicist, who was brutally dumped on-camera by The Bachelor's latest star, Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Becca's lineup of men include a fashion aficionado and male model with over-the-top confidence, a nine-year NFL veteran who is a big teddy bear despite his gruff exterior, an outdoorsman who likes to take things slow, a former pro football player who has a secret that could potentially end his chances with Becca, and a dashing gentleman who pulls out all the stops on Night 1, according to the network.


As shown in a recent trailer for the new season, limo entrances will include one man will ride up to the Los Angeles mansion on a bull -- while another suitor will show up in a full chicken costume from head to toe.

Becca will certainly have her hands full with these handsome -- and in some cases, quirky -- men, but only 21 bachelors will survive the season's first Rose Ceremony.

And of course, only one lucky suitor will win Becca's final rose, and hopefully, her hand in marriage.

According to Chris Harrison, Becca's season will be full of drama, tears and arguments, but he said viewers will probably fall in love with the franchise's new leading lady because she is "strong" and "independent."

"I think people feel like, 'Oh, she's just this nice pushover.' She is not," Chris told Entertainment Tonight after production on Season 14 wrapped.

"She's a badass woman that can handle her own, trust me. And I'm very defensive of my Bachelorettes. She doesn't need it. She took care of herself."


The Bachelorette's fourteenth season is set to premiere Monday, May 28 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Below is the list of the 28 bachelors who will be competing on The Bachelorette and their ABC-supplied descriptions:
