Kelsey Smith: I've watched previous seasons on CMT and appreciate the show's sweetness, southern values and romance. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the most incredible way to meet my "other half." I have an adventurous spirit.
KS: My perfect man is a gentleman. He is someone who I can come home to at the end of the day and desire to be near. I also want someone who is my cheerleader in life! I always feel closest to a guy when I lay my head on his chest... so the perfect man for me is someone I can rest my head on, be myself around and feel right at home with.
KS: A perfect date, in my opinion, involves anything simple, southern and the outdoors. A gentleman doesn't have to go to great expense or trouble to plan a date; he just needs to be able to share a little bit of himself. I'm all about quality time.
KS: Expect a little bit of everything: a little bit of city, a little bit of country and lots of romance!
KS: Someone who isn't upfront and honest with me is a major turnoff. Also, arrogance is a major turnoff for me. Confidence is one thing, but arrogance is a total turnoff.
KS: Before I filmed the show, I was most nervous about meeting 22 different guys from all over the United States. My main concern is making sure the guys get to know the real Kelsey.
KS: I am excited for everyone to see our love story play out. I just had the most exciting experience of my life, and now getting to share that with people watching, it feels like a chance to re-live it all over again. I am most excited to be starting the very real next chapter of my life!
KS: From watching the previous seasons, I learned to expect the unexpected, and most importantly, don't judge a book by its cover.
