It's almost time for our favorite guilty pleasure again! After the holiday madness is over, Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor will premiere on ABC on January 7, and we can hardly wait to see whether Colton finally finds the woman who will take his v-card. I mean the woman who will finally steal his heart and ride off into the sunset with him and live happily ever after. After falling hard for Becca Kufrin on The Bachelorette, Colton was clearly heartbroken when she sent him packing. Not that the image of him crying on the beach on Bachelor in Paradise was any clear indicator. Poor dude.

And then we were so hopeful when Colton got together with Tia Booth on Bachelor in Paradise, but alas, that romance was not meant to be. Huh. Wonder if ABC's offer to be The Bachelor had anything to do with his decision to end things with Tia? (Nah. That can't be it.)

But Colton is apparently ready to find love, and earlier today, Chris Harrison announced the list of 30 leading ladies who we will have the pleasure of watching vie for his heart on TV. Spoiler alert -- all of the women in the pool of Colton's hopefuls are young ... most in their early 20s. And some of their listed professions are, well ... interesting?! There are even a couple of beauty queens in the mix -- in addition to a woman who refers to herself as "Cinderella." (OK then ...)

Without further ado, here are all of the women who will be competing for Colton's affections on season 23 of The Bachelor. Perhaps his future wife is somewhere in this group!
