The Bachelorette, Season 7 (s/ABC) premieres Monday, May 23 at 9pm ET/PT (8CT,10MT) **Special Time**The Bachelorette will return to its regular time slot Monday, May 30 at 8pm ET/PT (7CT, 9MT)
Ashley Hebert’s unwillingness to admit she was in love with Brad on season 15 of The Bachelor may have cost her the final rose, but now the bouncy brunette is ready to risk it all in order to find “the one.” This time she’s handing out the roses, and with 25 suitors vying for her affections, she will have some big decisions to make. The drama begins immediately on the season premiere of The Bachelorette when Chris Harrison discovers that Ashley already knows about one of the men, Bentley, before meeting him. A former Bachelor cast member warned her that Bentley might be there for the wrong reasons. A Wall Street banker, Ames, is right on the money when he offers Ashley a pair of tickets to the ballet. Meanwhile Jeff, a mysterious masked bachelor who wants to be known for more than his pretty face, attempts to draw all of Ashley’s attention. Tensions mount and sparks fly as the bachelors vie for the first impression rose. Finally at the end of the night, Ashley will eliminate seven of the 25 men, leaving 18 to compete for her affections and, ultimately, her heart.
