Man, I spent all weekend putting together bios ready to give you 15 of the women I expect to be on Peter’s season today, then ABC went out and did what they did last season by releasing 33 women on their Bachelor Facebook Page. Not all of these women will make it on. I expect about 30 to make it on. So some of these women will end up getting cut. But I guess this is their way of having the public vet out their women for them like they did for Hannah’s season. So what I’m gonna do is give you the 15 bios I put together over the weekend here on the site and on IG today. Then tomorrow I’ll give you what I can find on the other 18 names, put them together today, then add them tomorrow for you. I’ll have their first and last names up today on Twitter and IG, but put their bios up tomorrow. Gotta go makin’ my day all busy don’t you ABC? Geesh. Thought I was just gonna release these 15 today then sit back and wait for more to come in. Well, guess I’m gonna have to get to work today. Bastards.
One thing that I can reveal today are the places they’re headed this season. We know that the season begins filming Friday night. Saturday is moving day when the women will move into the mansion, then Sunday will begin dates. We know there are public dates in episodes #2 & #3 in LA as dates on the 24th, 26th, 27th, and 28th are all public. So either they are heading to a US city for episode #4, or they’re staying in LA for episode #4 before heading overseas. Once they are overseas for episodes #5-7, I don’t know the order they are going, but they will be headed to Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. Hometowns will be episode #8 per usual. Then the overnights dates and final rose ceremony will be held for the first time ever in Australia. I know they’ve been looking for years to go to Australia since they’ve never been there. They’re finally doing it. Not sure what part of Australia the final rose ceremony will be, but they’re definitely headed there in early November.
I have some notes regarding these women on Page 4, so don’t miss that.
Ok, no more wasting any time. Here are bios for 15 of the women released today on ABC’s site:

Maybe I’m just old but all 20-something girls seem to look the same and have the same personality — at least that’s how it appears on their social media (same poses, same lips, same cutesy captions).
As far as Jade and her bitter ex-in laws…I see no reason why ABC would cut her loose. I believe just the opposite, she with all her personal drama is perfect for them.

Sure are a lot of pageant girls in the show now. I thought the group overall was attractive compared to some seasons.
And I agree that they may want to put Jade on there because of drama it will bring.

So glad they’re finally visiting Australia! I wonder why they’d never come out here before… Hopefully some of us local fans can spot them and get some real-time spoilers!

I live in beautifully diverse California, and seeing this list of women is just sad. Is this what the rest of the country is like?? Tan white beauty pageant contestants who go hunting??!!! No thank you. I hate network TV sometimes.

To me, in these pics, Sara Coffin strongly resembles Lauren Bushnell (from Ben H’s season). Very good looking, but I wouldn’t say Sara is THE MOST beautiful to ever appear on the show. (I think you wrote that in a previous post.) All subjective I know. Just weighing in. Eye of the beholder and all. Also, I think the pre-hype might have affected my opinion. Don’t know what I was expecting, but I see Lauren B. 2.0. in the looks dept.

I wish there were girls who knew each other before the show. Adds to the drama of the show

I know Megan Jeanne hops, the United flight attendant went on the show just to become famous!!!! She’s had a bf since may of this year and is still with him. She’s also posting sooooo much content from the bachelor, so sick of all these girls trying to be famous from the bachelor, like we can all see through you. No wonder she went home on the first night.
