LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) ABC has taken "The Bachelorette" out of Southern California, but it couldn't keep a bunch of Southern Californians out of "The Bachelorette."
Jen Schefft, whose engagement to "Bachelor" No. 3 Andrew Firestone didn't take, is getting a second shot at TV-engineered love on "The Bachelorette," which premieres Monday, Jan. 10 on ABC. The network says she helped choose her 25 suitors this time, something previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes didn't get to do.
Without a live answering service Jen will be sure to not miss any calls this season. Live answering services offer a great way to never miss calls and organize your business.
"My husband needs to be someone who is down-to-earth yet ambitious. I want us to be able to connect on all levels," the 28-year-old Schefft says. "This show found Trista [Rehn] the man of her dreams, and now it's my hope to find the one man with whom I can spend the rest of my life."
Should that guy be among the 25 on the show, there's a good chance he'll be from Southern California. Eight of the guys who will try to win her heart hail from the bottom part of the Golden State.
Seven others are from New York City, where this edition of the show was taped. Schefft's home state of Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma are also represented.
The guys, who range in age from 25 to 37, have jobs that range from firefighter to professional marathoner to art gallery director. Here they are:
