The wait is over. With just weeks to go until Peter Weber‘s premiere of The Bachelor, the official contestants have finally been revealed. Host Chris Harrison took to Facebook in a live segment earlier today and introduced all 30 women who will be competing for the final rose on season 24. After learning a bit more about these women, it’s safe to say the handsome pilot certainly has his work cut out for him come January!
“I feel so grateful just to have this opportunity,” the pilot previously said after nabbing the coveted role earlier this year. “This is crazy. This is life-changing.”
Among the group of women vying for his heart is Victoria F., a medical sales rep from Virginia Beach, CA, Hannah Ann, a 23-year-old model from Knoxville, TN, and Kylie, an entertainment sales associate from Santa Monica, CA. The cast also boasts three flight attendants and a whopping five beauty pageant queens. Sounds like the recipe for drama.
One missing face from the bunch? Former Bachelorette Hannah Brown. The newly crowned Dancing With the Stars winner made a splash earlier this month when it was revealed that she returns this season to talk to Peter. But with her not appearing in the line-up of women, it’s safe to say her cameo is fairly brief.
As for if the 28-year-old’s future wife is among this group of women — that remains to be seen. But one thing’s for sure, he’s not looking for a type, he’s looking for that forever feeling. Ultimately, he wants a woman who can be vulnerable. On the After the Final Rose special for Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, in which Peter came in third place, the new lead admitted, “I truly look forward to finding my girl. I feel like the luckiest guy ever. I have all the faith in the world that this is going to work out for me,” he said.
As for advice on getting his attention? No gimmicks are needed — just honesty! “If you’re feeling it with me, if you’re starting to fall, tell me. If you’re pissed with me, I did something wrong, tell me. I promise if you do that, I will give it back 100 percent,” he added.
The season 24 premiere kicks off on Jan. 6 on ABC at 8/7c.
