The Bacherlorette (s/ABC): Monday, May 24 at 9:00pm ET/PT (8:00pm CT, 10:00pm MT)***Season Premiere***
Ali, the 25 year-old stunner from San Francisco is ready to put it all on the line in her second chance at finding Mr. Right. In the dramatic first episode of The Bachelorette, Ali meets the 25 handsome men – including Canadians Chris H, a real estate developer from Vancouver; Craig M, a dental sales representative from Sarnia, Ontario; and Justin, an entertainment wrestler from Toronto, Ontario – that will vie for her heart. Nothing can prepare Ali for the lengths these men will go to for her attention, like when a hunky skier does a death-defying back flip off the limo and one contender gets down on one knee and proposes. The competition heats up when Chris Harrison brings out the first impression rose, and Ali gets concerned when she receives early warning signals that some of the guys are there for reasons other than love. Tensions rise and tempers clash as the men check out their competition. As the men battle for position, Ali scoops up the first impression rose and offers it to someone who swept her off her feet. At the end of the night Ali eliminated eight of the 25 men, leaving 17 to compete for her heart.
