Season 11

"The Bachelorette 2015" continues the surprises of this season's "Bachelor" with the biggest one of all: there will be two Bachelorettes: the charming, charismatic beauty, Britt, who captivated Chris Soules and the rest of Bachelor Nation with a memorable hug on that first night at the Bachelor mansion, and Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed. Who will the men prefer? Eventually, only one woman will be left to hand out the final rose.

It was the hug felt around the world. And no one will ever forget it. When stunning Britt Nilsson pulled up at the Bachelor Mansion and approached Chris, she was trembling with nervous anticipation. Moments later, she found herself in an embrace that captured both Chris' and the country's heart. Later that night, Chris confirmed the intensity of that embrace when he handed Britt the coveted first impression rose. And with that, a love affair began to blossom.

As Chris's journey evolved, no one — certainly none of the other girls — could deny the connection between Britt and the handsome farmer. Their kisses were passionate, their conversations intimate. However, what seemed like true love all came to a screeching halt just before hometown dates. Britt's dream of finding a husband was shattered. She left in tears, returning to her hometown in Michigan to mend her heart with her loving family by her side.

Born just outside Detroit, Michigan, Britt eventually moved to Los Angeles to attend college at Azusa Pacific University. After school, she stayed in California, moving to Hollywood to pursue a career in modeling. After giving up modeling, Britt worked as a waitress, spreading her infectious personality while serving others. She also began volunteering at a local church, where you can often find her greeting congregants at the door.

Since she left the show, America just can't stop talking about Britt — and she is back and determined to find the elusive, true love she has been looking for her entire life. She knows that this process worked once for her, and she can't wait to give it another go.

And then there is Kaitlyn Bristowe. Millions watched in quiet astonishment when Chris explained to a heartbroken Kaitlyn that she was not the woman with whom he would be spending the rest of his life. Her eyes brimming with tears, she stepped inside a waiting car to head back to her single life.

Kaitlyn is truly one of a kind. She's beautiful, irreverent, and undeniably hilarious. In the past, however, her playful demeanor has often kept her from opening up and being vulnerable to love. It was her experience on the Bachelor that helped her finally tap into that part of her heart that had been dormant for so long. Even though she went home without the love she was so desperately looking for, Kaitlyn is thankful for her time with Chris. And now — more than ever — she is ready to let down those walls and find love again.

The daughter of a ballerina, Kaitlyn's love of dance took hold at a very young age, and she hasn't stopped moving since, neither figuratively nor literally. Currently, she teaches spin classes. However, Kaitlyn's ready to trade in the cycling shoes and the gym for a pair of sparkly high heels and a house near the Bachelor mansion. Viewers were thankful for the laughs and smiles she gave them along the way, as her electric personality and indelible sense of humor lit up the screen each week. Kaitlyn was a huge fan favorite from the beginning, and remains so to this day. She is one hundred percent certain that this is the way she is going to find her husband, and wants everyone to share this once-in-a-lifetime ride with her.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelorette" is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Alycia Rossiter are the executive producers.


Season 10

"The Bachelorette 2014" on ABC stars Andi Dorfman, 26, a beautiful and successful woman, who has it all at first glance — her loving family, her great friends, and even her dream job. But she realized there was something missing. So, last September, she put her busy life on hold to try and find love on "The Bachelor." She thought she had found her match, but in the end it was not meant to be, and Andi walked away from Juan Pablo. She did not, however, let that experience stop her desire to find her perfect soul mate. Andi will embark on her own journey to find love when she stars in the tenth edition.

While on "The Bachelor," Andi revealed that she doesn't want an ordinary love. She longs to find a great love like the one her parents share and her newlywed sister has found. She isn't sure what has kept her from finding it, but she is sure she wants to keep on trying.

The whip-smart, stunning Bachelorette lives in Atlanta, where she works as an Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County, Georgia. Andi is one of very few women working as a gang prosecutor and she aims to keep her community safe by putting criminals behind bars. She hopes that one day her own children will live in a beautiful world full of warmth and opportunity. But first, she must fearlessly pursue her next goal — to find the wonderful love of her life.

Andi is the younger of two sisters and grew up learning how to hunt and fish, both activities she still enjoys — almost as much as she loves to shop. Andi was a sorority girl at Louisiana State University until she graduated in 2009. After that, she earned her JD from Wake Forest's Law School in 2012. She has been an Assistant District Attorney since passing the bar in her native Georgia and has been prosecuting criminals ever since.

"The Bachelorette 2014" contestants include Andrew Poole, Bradley Wisk, Brett Melnick, Brian Osborne, Carl King, Chris Soules, Cody Sattler, Craig Muhlbauer, Dylan Petitt, Emil, Eric Hill, Jason Leep, JJ O'Brien, Josh Bauer, Josh Murray, Marcus Grodd, Marquel Martin, Mike Campanelli, Nick Sutter, Nick Viall, Patrick Jagodzinski, Ron Worrell, Rudie Dane Baldwin, Steven Woolworth and Tasos Hernandez.


Season 9

"The Bachelorette 2013" on ABC stars Desiree Hartsock.

What do a Cuban Casanova — who is a gentle giant but might be too good to be true — a hard charging federal prosecutor, a sexy former pro soccer player who is a single dad, a free spirited drilling fluid engineer with a captivating sense of humor, a self-proclaimed Southern gentleman who also is a single father, and a suave, debonair financial advisor with a dark secret in his past all have in common? They're all on the hunt for the new Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock.

Desiree, 27, who grew up in a family of modest means but rich in love, meets 25 potential soul mates as she begins her own search for true love. In the premiere, 25 eligible men come from all over to try and win Desiree's heart. Immediately the drama and one-upsmanship begin. Desiree's anxiety melts away as soon as the men start to compete to impress her: Larry Burchett, a nervous ER doctor, tries to break some romantic dance moves, but he's no Fred Astaire; Nick Roy, who plies his trade as a professional magician, displays his talents to Desiree; a shirtless Zak Waddell, a hunky oil rig worker, displays an outstanding six-pack to impress the Bachelorette; and Diogo Custodio appears like a knight in shining armor — literally. But the one who captures Desiree's heart is our youngest man to ever climb out of a limousine — Ben Scott's four-year-old adorable son, Brody, who accompanies his single dad.

The battle for Desiree's attention and affection has only begun. The 19 roses come out early. Nick R. sets off a commotion as the men rush to get time alone with the Bachelorette. After Desiree gives out the first rose, a jealous frenzy erupts between the guys. Brad, who is a part-time DJ, sparkles with some hip hop dance moves. Fearless, topless Zak W. strips down to his underwear and dives into the pool. But how will Desiree react to this immodest stunt? Strikingly handsome Juan Pablo Galavis, a former pro soccer player, attempts to give the Bachelorette a private dribbling lesson. However, before too long, the rest of the men jump into the action. And Jonathan Vollinger drops a bombshell when he decides the time is right to invite Desiree into his own special "fantasy suite," which leads to an explosive reaction.

Some bachelors with early roses can relax, but the others are very apprehensive as the season's first rose ceremony begins. Finally, Desiree will have the 19 men who will move into the mansion and continue on the quest for her heart.

The "Bachelorette 2013" contestants include Ben Scott, Brad McKinzie, Brandon Andreen, Brian Jarosinski, Brooks Forester, Bryden Vukasin, Chris Siegfried, Dan Cox, Desiree Hartsock, Diogo Custodio, Drew Kenney, James Case, Jonathan Vollinger, Juan Pablo Galavis, Kasey Stewart, Larry Burchett, Micah, Michael Garofola, Mike R., Mikey Tenerelli, Nick M., Nick Roy, Robert Graham, Will Smith, Zack Kalter and Zak Waddell.


Season 8

"The Bachelorette 2012" on ABC stars Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America's and Brad Womack's heart on the 15th season of "The Bachelor," who finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad's proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves. It's hard to meet men as a single mom, but Emily will have her pick of 25 bachelors when she gets a second opportunity to find love starring in "The Bachelorette" Season 8.

Emily, 25, led a tragic but fulfilling life before meeting Brad. In 2004 she became engaged to famed NASCAR driver and team owner Ricky Hendrick. Sadly Hendrick died in a plane crash in October, 2004, leaving his fiancée pregnant with their child. The apple of Emily's eye and legacy of their love, Josephine Riddick "Ricki" Hendrick was born June 29, 2005.

Instantly popular with "Bachelor" fans, Emily's strength, passion and southern charm — as a mother and as a woman — would make anyone happy to make her his wife. She found love again with Brad and, even though it didn't work out, she knows that the series can work. Among those 25 men, she is looking for someone who makes her laugh, doesn't take himself too seriously and can be her best friend. Emily is hoping that the third time is the charm.

The Morgantown, West Virginia, native who now resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a full-time mommy, which is something she has always wanted. Ricki, who is six years old, is a perfect blend of both her mother and father in looks and personality. Emily cherishes the unconditional love they share, which makes her smile all the time, and knows that the time they share together will serve as memories that Ricki will have forever. As busy as she is as a full time mom, Emily finds the time to do volunteer work. Her particular interest is in helping children. She has given her time to the Hendrick Marrow program, Levine Children's Hospital, the lunch buddy program at Hidden Valley Middle School, and most recently to a jewelry class she is teaching at an underfunded middle school. Next on her list is a mission trip to Africa.

Emily feels incredibly grateful to have found her first love when she was very young, and despite not having dated a lot, knows what it's like to be truly in love. In the past seven years, she has been looking for someone with the same spark she has for life, and she believes that she will find her soul mate on "The Bachelorette."


Season 7

"The Bachelorette 2011" on ABC stars Ashely Hebert, who couldn't admit she was in love with Brad Womack on "The Bachelor 2011" — and it might have cost her the final rose — but that's all in the past. The energetic and vivacious Hebert, who is ready to start a new life with a soul mate she might soon meet, will get a second opportunity to find love when she stars in "The Bachelorette" Season 7.

Ashley, 26, who currently resides in Philadelphia, where she is finishing her degree in dentistry, went from being one of the favorites to capture Brad's heart on the just completed Season 15 of ABC's hit romance reality series, "The Bachelor," to narrowly missing her goal of finding a future husband. Ashley and Brad clicked on their enchanting first date at a private carnival, discovering an electric connection and sharing a magical first kiss. After showing Brad her charming hometown and his meeting her family, the rollercoaster ride took them to South Africa, where, in a stunning turnaround, their relationship fell apart. It seemed the couple wanted different things out of life. Ashley was frustrated she couldn't communicate her feelings to Brad, and he gallantly decided to let her go before the rose ceremony, knowing he would not offer her a rose. Ashley was surprised and heartbroken that her perfect fairytale came to an abrupt end. It would take her time to find the silver lining to this bad situation and move forward.

That time has come and now Hebert, stronger and more confident than ever, is prepared to find a balance between her career and personal life and find the love of her life. She fell in love once on "The Bachelor," so she truly believes that it will happen again — and this time she will be ready and open to express her feelings to the right guy.


Season 6

On "The Bachelorette" 2010, Ali Fedotowsky has finally decided to risk it all for love. The energetic and charismatic career-oriented woman from San Francisco has re-prioritized her life — and now love comes out on top. She will have her own opportunity to find her soul mate when she stars in Season 6 of "The Bachelorette."

Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of "The Bachelor." She became the front-runner for Jake's heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately. By the time she sorted out her work affairs, Jake had already moved on with his search for love with the three fabulous women who stayed with him, and he did not allow Ali to return. But it's not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time — her apartment, her job, her stability — to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.


Season 5

Jillian Harris, the intelligent, independent, passionate woman who fell just short of her goal — hoping that Jason Mesnick could be her best friend, soul mate and future husband on the just completed hit season of "The Bachelor" — will have her own opportunity to find true love, starring in the fifth edition of ABC's "The Bachelorette."

Enthusiastic about her work and life in general, Jillian is ready to find her best friend and settle down and is confident that she can find the love of her life on "The Bachelorette 5." Jillian is an only child and is excited at the thought of starting her own family.
