Here's Every Bachelor Contestant Vying for Colton Underwood's Heart
7th December 2018

Is there a shortage of jewel-tone tank tops at some local Forever21 stores? From the looks of the the Season 23 Bachelor contestant portraits, released on Thursday, we’d be shocked if there wasn’t. 

This year we’ve got two pageant queens, a commercial real estate agent who moonlights as “DJ Agro,” a woman who identifies as “Sloth” (we wish we were joking) and a 22-year-old who’s never been kissed among the 30 women vying for 26-year-old Colton Underwood’s former NFL-playing heart. 

Underwood, who will be shooting his third shot at Bachelor franchise love come Jan. 7 (he made his debut on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette before heading to Bachelor in Paradise), will reportedly have his much talked-about virginity woven into the storyline of his season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Scroll below for a look at the ladies playing for Colton’s heart, and tidbits from their official Bachelor profiles. Tune into ABC in 2019 for the 3-hour season premiere.
