With excitement building up for the premiere of the 28th season of ABC’s hit reality series “The Bachelor,” all eyes are on Joey Graziadei, the new leading man ready to embark on a journey to find true love. Set to air on January 22, 2024, this season promises to be a must-watch, making it onto TODAY.com's list of top 12 shows for the new year.

Joey Graziadei, a 28-year-old Pennsylvania native currently residing in Hawaii, gained Bachelor Nation’s sympathy and admiration during his appearance on Charity Lawson’s season of “The Bachelorette.” Despite their strong connection, his hopes were dashed when Charity professed her love for Dotun Olubeko just moments before a potential proposal.

Following the success stories of past seasons, the franchise pins its hopes on Joey to continue the trend of finding enduring love. However, a teaser for the upcoming season hints at potential heartbreak for the new bachelor, despite host Jesse Palmer's promise of it being "the most romantic season in 'Bachelor' history."

The latest trailer reveals intense romantic connections between Joey and several of the women vying for his affection. It also suggests brewing tensions among the contestants as they compete for more time with the charming tennis instructor.

Meet 25-Year-Old Kelsey

Among the 32 women seeking to win Joey's heart is Kelsey Anderson, a 25-year-old junior project manager from New Orleans, Louisiana. Kelsey graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and is ready to make her bachelor's debut. Kelsey's unique background adds an intriguing dimension to the mix, having grown up on a U.S. military base in Germany before relocating to the vibrant city of New Orleans. Her love for exploring her hometown through streetcar rides and visits to the French Market highlights her adventurous spirit.

As fans eagerly await the premiere, ABC recently released the cast list, introducing a diverse array of contestants, including a radiochemist, a mental health therapist, and even a pair of sisters, all vying for Joey's affections.

With the spotlight on Kelsey A. and her fellow contestants, audiences brace themselves for a season packed with drama, heartwarming connections, and, potentially, a love story that will captivate Bachelor Nation.
