Here’s what I’ve got on the 20 girls remaining after the first episode. I even put them in alphabetical order by first name for you. Also, about half of these girls have active Twitter accounts and are already following each other, but none of them are posting anything because they can’t. Well, Kim is, but all her tweets are about sports since she went to the University of Miami and Alabama. So all you stalkers and nutjobs can go follow them if you’d like. Here you go:
Alli Travis: 24, buyer for Abercrombie & Fitch, lives in Ohio.
Ashley Hebert (pronounced “AY-bear”): 25, Madawaska, Maine. A longtime ex boyfriend died right before she came on the show. Has a tattoo on her wrist that says “Crazy Beautiful”. Currently attending dental school at the University of Pennsylvania.
Ashley Spivey: 25, nanny from NY, gets the first impression rose, father died suddenly 2 years ago, which is probably going to be her storyline on the show. I’m guessing she was cast thinking Chris Lambton would be the “Bachelor”.
Britt Billmaier: 24 or 25, Seattle, WA. Stanford grad, is a chef and works for a food magazine. Former gymnast, does some modeling, former “Facebook Fox”, and numerous other things you can google about her.
Chantal O’Brien: 28, Mercer Island, WA. Chantal is the daughter of Mike O’Brien, former Seattle Seahawk and owner of the O’Brien Auto Group chain in the Pacific Northwest, which you can read about by clicking this article from 2008. She works as her dad’s assistant at the corporate office and is divorced. Was married in 2005 and divorced in 2009. I’m well aware of who her ex-husband is, what he used to do, and what he does now. Not that hard to figure out once you know Chantal’s last name.
Emily Maynard: 24, Charlotte, North Carolina. Mother of a 5 year old daughter, Ricki. The father of her daughter is Ricky Hendrick, of the well known Hendricks Motor Sports in NASCAR. Ricky died in plane crash in 2004. Five days after he died, Emily found out she was pregnant with Ricky’s child. They were never married. She’s also dated Dale Earnhardt Jr. So if there’s ever an underdog people will get behind this season, I’m guessing it will be Emily.
Jackie Gordon: 27 or 28, from Rhode Island, currently lives in New York City. Works with special needs kids on Upper West Side. Has a website for art she does as a hobby: Jackie’s Art Website.
Keltie Colleen: Age? Originally from Alberta, Canada. Now living in LA. Former Rockette dancer. Dancer/choreographer. Has appeared in numerous music videos for her dancing. Website: Keltie’s Website
Kim Coon: 25, a marketing coordinator in Charlotte, North Carolina. Got her undergraduate degree from the University of Miami. Got her Masters at the University of Alabama. Was a Carolina Panthers cheerleader in 2009.
Lindsay Hill: 25, Frisco, Tx. Was a 1st grade teacher at Allen Elementary school in Frisco, Tx. Quit to do the show a month in to her first teaching job.
Lisa Morrisey: 24, Lives in Kansas City. Former track star at the University of Kansas. Hey, check her career stats right here!
Madison Garton: Age? Lives in New York City. Part of the New York Underground Vampire Club. I have no idea what that means, but nonetheless, she is the girl with the fangs.
Marissa May: 26, Works for SUN Sports/FOX Sports Florida as a Production Assistant. Graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007.
Meghan Merritt: 30, former marketing manager for Dolce & Gabbana. Quit her job to do the show. Nice decision.
Melissa Schreiber: 31, waitress in Boca Raton, Fla. Oldest woman on the show.
Michelle Money: 30, Salt Lake City, UT. Works at a salon as a stylist, but also has a modeling/acting background. Would’ve been able to see all her past work on IMDB.com if they hadn’t taken her profile down after I posted it a month ago. She’s divorced and has a 5 year old daughter named Brielle.
Raichel Goodyear: Age? Orange County, CA. Cosmetologist who waxes Brad’s arms on the first night.
Sarah Powell: Age? She’s a realtor, but other than being the girl Brad gets down on his knees for out of the limo, I don’t know anything else about her.
Shawntel Newton 24, Chico, California. She’s a mortician. Works as an enbalmer and funeral director at their family owned funeral parlor. Their website is: Newton Family Funeral Home . Although the picture is older and doesn’t really look like her anymore, hey, maybe you’re in the Chico area and looking to bury someone soon and they can hook you up. And you may think Shawntel is working at the family business just until she finds something else. Not quite. Apparently she loves her job and wants to own that place someday. In fact, she even took the time to email “Ellen’s” show when they were asking people if they want to be on her show. Here’s what Shawntel wrote on Ellen’s website message board almost 2 years ago:
“Hey there Ellen. My name is Shawntel Newton. I wrote a lengthy email about a week ago on your ‘suggestion box’, on how I would love to be meet you sometime and talk with you. I live in Chico, California and I work at my dad’s funeral home. I am going to mortuary school in Sacramento so I can become a licensed embalmer and funeral director. I think it would be such an amazing topic to go over. I know it sounds sad and depressing. But I am a very lively girl and I think people get the wrong idea when they think of ‘funeral people.’ Your show is so awesome, I love you and this it’s awesome that you not only just bring celebrities on your show, but also kids, inventors and maybe one day a mortuary woman. You are great!”
