It’s only been two months since ABC capped off Bachelor Juan Pablo’s nauseating besito-fest, but already runner-up Andi Dorfman is getting ready to start her quest to find love. With this season’s Bachelorette starting Monday, May 19, we felt it’d be prudent to acquaint ourselves — and you — with this season’s crop of eligible bachelors.
To help you keep everyone straight (there are at least 17 contestants named Nick), we assigned a superlative to each strapping young lad, so you know who’s most likely to live up to every existing Bachelor/Bachelorette stereotype. Who’s most likely to pass out in a drunken stupor at the first cocktail party? Who’s most likely to rappel down a skyscraper and say, “If we can do this, we can conquer anything”? Let’s find out.
Most Likely To: Constantly talk about how excited he is for Andi to meet his mom. We’re not ruling out the possibility that he gives her his mother’s most cherished piece of jewelry on the first night.
Most Likely To: Emerge from the limo on the first night wearing a cringe-inducing costume, causing Andi to laugh politely while she contemplates her decision to come on this godforsaken show
Most Likely To: Not be ready to commit to a serious relationship — dude can’t even decide whether he prefers the city or country.
Most Likely To: Try way too hard during a sports-themed group date, and accidentally get himself concussed (a.k.a getting Ames Brown’d)
Most Likely To: Be coerced by producers to use embarrassing metaphors like “For once, there’s a fire I don’t want to put out — the one in my heart.”
