Her name is Courtney and she is a cosmetologist from Venice, Florida. (ABC does not list the contestants' last names, citing privacy.)

According to her bio posted on 'The Bachelor' website, she is 26 years old.

"I am genuinely looking to get married because I believe everyone has a soul mate out there in the world and I, unfortunately, have yet to find mine."

She said she enjoys going boating with friends, tanning at the beach and going out for drinks. She has been in two serious relationships and is done wasting her time with boys. Courtney's ready for a man.

By the way, Courtney said she is extremely claustrophobic and loves a man in cowboy boots!

The season premier is scheduled to air on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 on your ABC Action News Station.

Better buckle up, too, because it is a three-hour episode.
