The Bachelorette's 30 bachelors who will be competing for Hannah Brown's heart on Season 15 of the show have officially been announced by ABC.
Back in mid-March before The Bachelorette began filming Hannah's season, ABC surprised fans by announcing the 33 men who "may" be vying for the Alabama native's heart on Season 15 via Facebook.
The inclusion of the word "may" suggested a few of the 33 men -- which would be a slightly larger group of suitors than the show typically starts with -- would possibly not actually end up being part of the cast when The Bachelorette premiered on ABC.
And that turned out to be the case, as the network has apparently cut three suitors from the list and just revealed the identities of the 30 men who will be fighting for Hannah's roses on The Bachelorette when it debuts Monday, May 13 at 8PM ET/PT.
"It's a tractor... It's a plane... It's the self-appointed king of the jungle! Hannah's search for fierce love is matched with fierce competition as one hopeful bachelor sets a high bar by jumping the fence, while another pops out from the limo, in true beast fashion," ABC teases.
"At the end of the day, whether he is a golf pro looking to be Hannah's hole-in-one, a Box King seeking a woman who checks all his boxes, or a man with a custom-made pizza delivery, everyone wants a piece of Hannah's heart."
Hannah will be introduced to 30 men at the Bachelor mansion on Night 1 while her friends from Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor -- Demi Burnett and Katie Morton -- will be listening and watching from a surveillance van parked nearby.
Following the cocktail party, Hannah must eliminate eight guys, narrowing down her search for love to only 22 bachelors by the end of the first Rose Ceremony.
When comparing ABC's initial list of 33 bachelors to the latest lineup of guys, the network apparently dropped Ben Granger, a 30-year-old from Charlotte, NC; Joe Romeo, a 27-year-old from Staten Island, NY; and Matt Dione, a 31-year-old from Winter Springs, FL, from the cast.
