The new season of The Bachelor starring everyone’s favorite pro soccer player and single dad Juan Pablo, 32, is coming in January, so I hope everyone is very close to the edge of their seat. It’s the first time in a while that I’ve actually agreed with the person they put in the driver’s seat, so this should be an even more fun season than normal.
But as we know from his time on Desiree‘s season of The Bachelorette, when he didn’t get a single one-on-one date even though he’s THE BEST THING EVER, Juan Pablo is clinically doomed to be underutilized. I’m not saying he won’t get a one-on-one date on his own season, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
So with that in mind, we should probably get to know these ladies, since we’ll be seeing way more of them than of the glorious Juanny Pabs. And we’re in luck! Because good news — they were all announced yesterday. But there’s bad news, too, and that’s that there are twenty-seven of them. That’s way too many eager ladies looking for love to memorize all at once. Usually I wait ’til the cast gets trimmed down after the first night to even attempt to untangle all that hairspray and sequins and I recommend you do too.
But until that moment, there are some typical categories that are getting hit, so I figured I’d break it down for you the only way that makes sense to me — in Bachelor stereotypes.
