Here is the very latest Press release from ABC:
Desiree’s Suitors Are Revealed…Who is the Man in the Suit of Armor, The Abs Man and the Youngest Man to Ever Climb Out of a Limo?
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, when the ninth edition of the female version of ABC’s popular romance reality series, “The Bachelorette,” premieres on MONDAY, MAY 27 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
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, “Episode 901,” 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, a nervous ER doctor, tries to break some romantic dance moves, but he’s no Fred Astaire; Nick R., who plies his trade as a professional magician, displays his talents to Desiree; a shirtless Zak W., a hunky oil rig worker, displays an outstanding six-pack to impress the Bachelorette; and Diogo 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’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, 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 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 first official ABC press release:
On the premiere, “Episode 901,” Desiree begins her Cinderella journey when Chris Harrison welcomes her to her new home, a cliffside Malibu estate, and gives her the keys to a brand new Bentley convertible. Her transformation is complete as she slips into a stunning silvery confection of a gown fit for a princess. At the mansion, Desiree’s anxiety falls away as her 25 eager suitors catch their first glimpse of her: One nervous guy tries to sweep her off her feet with a romantic dance move, but falls flat; a sleight-of-hand artist makes something special magically appear for Desiree; a hunky oil rig worker puts his amazing abs on display straight off; still another hopeful Prince Charming goes to the other extreme, showing up in a medieval suit of armor. But the one who steals her heart is the youngest bachelor ever to step out of a limo — a four-year-old boy who is followed by his proud, single dad.
The 19 roses are brought out early, and with them the battle for Desiree’s heart begins. The magician announces he is going to make the Bachelorette disappear, setting off a frenzy of guys stealing Desiree away in hopes of getting a rose. Once the first rose is awarded to one lucky fellow, a battle erupts between the jealous guys who will stop at nothing to get her attention: one man dazzles her with hip hop dance steps; the shirtless abs bachelor strips down completely and jumps in the pool — but will this outrageous stunt get him a rose or a ticket home? Tensions mount as a dashing Venezuelan former soccer player tries to pull her outside to show her some dribbling moves and the other guys intervene. The fireworks really explode when one overzealous bachelor wants to show Desiree his own private “fantasy suite.” Her reaction shocks the house! By the end of one of the most exciting nights of her life, Desiree is hopeful that one of the remaining 19 men will indeed be her Prince Charming.
Now, on to Des! Thanks to the wonderful Possessionista, we know that she is wearing a Randi Rahm dress. And looks gorgeous doing it:
