Season 21, starring Nick Viall as the man handing out the roses, will definitely not be any different.
On the roster, we have Alexis, an “aspiring dolphin trainer” (aka, a dolphin fan), Josephine, an “unemployed nurse” (aka, unemployed) and Lauren, a “law school graduate” (aka, unemployed).
But, as always, to balance out the laughable job titles, Viall will have some seriously smart ladies to contend with. Except this year, the serious jobs that balance out the not-so-serious ones are kind of noteworthy for what they suggest about the season.
We’ve got Rachel, an attorney; Liz, a doula; Danielle M., a neonatal nurse; Brittany, a travel nurse; and Briana, a surgical unit nurse.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that you’ve got two aspiring professionals paired up against a whole slew of success. No doubt the show is trying to breed insecurity from the get go, and it will be interesting to see if the have-its clash with the want-its in the first few weeks.
Of course, there is room for coincidence here. That’s a lot of nurses.
What would make this list even more entertaining is if there were an actual dolphin trainer to go up against Alexis.
Drama aside, maybe the fourth time will finally be the charm for Viall, who’s track record on the franchise thus far has only led to heartbreak.
Personally, I can’t wait to see his journey as The Bachelor begin.
The Bachelor Season 21 airs Monday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c on ABC.
Do you think The Bachelor purposefully chooses ladies with job titles that will clash or is it just a coincidence?
