'Bachelor' Women Love a Man in Uniform

One's a former Miss Illinois. One is a lawyer who's also a bodybuilder. And one, we're promised, will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" to a guy in the first episode.

They, and 22 other women, are among those who will be competing for the love of one Andy Baldwin on the new edition of "The Bachelor," which premieres next week.

Subtitled "Officer and a Gentleman," the 10th edition of the show will feature Baldwin, a 30-year-old doctor and lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, surrounded by 25 women who all, presumably, want love to lift them up where they belong. The show debuts at 9:45 p.m. ET Monday, April 2.

Per usual, the festivities begin with the women arriving in limousines. Unlike past "Bachelors," though, Baldwin is tasked with giving a rose to one of them as soon as she says hello. Hijinks naturally ensue; ABC notes that Linda, the aforementioned bodybuilder, challenges Baldwin (a veteran triathlete) to a push-up contest, while another bachelorette, Stephanie W., does backflips in an evening gown. Ten of the women go home the first night, with one really not happy about it.
