Rejected by Bachelor Brad Womack in March, flirty dental student Ashley Hebert is finally ready to find love on ABC's Bachelorette starting Monday night.
When Hebert's season premieres, fans learn that the 27-year-old already knows of one of the men — Bentley — thanks to a former contestant who warned her he might be there for the wrong reasons.
Also on the first episode? Former baseball player Nick tries to woo Hebert with a love poem, while liquor distributor Tim drinks away his stress. Hebert will then be forced to eliminate seven men, leaving 18 to find their way to her heart.
When Hebert was named the new Bachelorette after Womack ditched her and Chantal O'Brien in favor of Emily Maynard, Jimmy Kimmel jokingly asked her to swear a solemn oath pertaining to her time on the series.
"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?" Kimmel joked. Hebert's reply: "I'll do my best with that!"
