Chris Harrison and Ashley Hebert in the Bachelorette Season 7 Premiere
The premiere begins with a huge surprise as Bachelorette Ashley Hebert discloses she already knows one of the men, someone a former Bachelor cast member has warned her is here for the wrong reasons. Meanwhile, Ashley's old insecurity returns when she reveals to Chris Harrison that she fears the men will be disappointed when they learn she is the Bachelorette. The 25 eligible guys start arriving, eager to make an impression, including a handsome chef who steals a kiss; a Wall Street banker who brings her a pair of ballet tickets; a winery owner who pours her a bottle of her own special vintage; and a former professional baseball player who recites a poem he wrote for her. But nothing tops the mysterious bachelor who steps out of the limo wearing a mask. Finally, the man Ashley has been warned about arrives. Though skeptical, she is thrown by his good looks and quiet charm.
The Bachelorette premieres on Monday, May 23 on ABC.
