Jimmy Kimmel jokingly asked the new Bachelorette to swear a solemn oath: "Do you promise, on national television, to date 25 men simultaneously without complaining? Do you promise to make sure the hot tubs are clean and have enough chlorine and their bacteria levels are low?"

Her reply: "I'll do my best with that!"

Fans came to know the flirty dental student, 26, as she competed for Womack's love and attention on the most recent season, won by Emily Maynard.

Though her jealousy toward her fellow contestants was often evident during Womack's season, the third-place finisher says things will be different now that she has a whole new crop of bachelors competing to win her heart.
