Tia is a 26-year-old physical therapist from Weiner, AR. She'll be competing for Arie when The Bachelor's 22nd season debuts on Monday, January 1 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
Arie is searching for his future wife after failing to win Emily Maynard's heart on The Bachelorette's eighth season back in 2012.
Tia is 5'6" and graduated from Arkansas St. University. She shoots guns and enjoys time outdoors, so Arie will probably appreciate the fact she can hang with the guys. It also doesn't hurt she's a brunette beauty.
