This will be an ongoing list of the confirmed bachelorettes for Ben’s season. Any videos, bio info, and pictures that I gather in the coming weeks will be posted under each girls picture. Some will have more than others for no other reason than its because I was given more about them. One thing to remember, is I have no idea how recent these pictures are of these girls. I would say most of them are fairly recent, but I really don’t have any way of knowing. Every season when I post pictures you always get the proverbial “This is not an attractive group of guys/girls”, then the season starts and you see them in person, and perception changes based on a number of factors. So just keep that in mind when making your snap judgments, like I know you will, off a couple pictures.
1. Elyse Myers: 24, personal trainer/fitness instructor, Tampa, Fla. Originally from Illinois, graduated from Eastern Illinois University w/ a degree in exercise physiology. For some reason still has her Twitter page active, although didn’t use it much before she left for filming.
2. Erika Uhlig: 22, Chicago, current Miss Chicago 2011, went to University of Pitt. All her info currently on her Miss Chicago site (http://www.misschicago.org/erika.html), and she also has a Twitter account that she didn’t shut down before she left.
