This is going to be good. Bachelor Ben Higgins‘ ladies were announced by ABC on Monday, Dec. 7, and the Season 20 contestants have some wild, wacky, and strange “occupations.”
Jobs listed by the contestants include Tiara, 26, a “chicken enthusiast” from Redmond, Wash. There’s also Maegan, 30, a self-proclaimed “cowgirl” from small-town Weatherford, Texas.
According to the press release, other standout ladies on the upcoming season include a “soft-spoken single mom of two young daughters,” a set of identical twins, a “battle-tested war veteran” who is “bold and gorgeous,” as well as a “beautiful television news anchor.”
Of course, like past seasons, there is a major curveball. As previously revealed by Us Weekly, the show producers have brought back several members of Bachelor Nation, including Becca Tilley, who was the runner-up on Chris Soules‘ Season 19. Amber James, another alum from the same season, also joins the mix of ladies after her recent stint on Bachelor in Paradise.
