CLARE, JUAN PABLO GALAVIS (ABC)

It’s that special time of year, not just because of the holidays, but also when ABC releases the names of the next round of bachelorettes competing on reality series “The Bachelor.”

This year, single dad Juan Pablo Galavis is the object of their affections, with 27 women lined up looking for a chance at love. From an opera singer to a nurse to a former NBA dancer to a pregnant hairstylist, the ladies span in age from 21 to 32.

The two-night Bachelor Premiere Event starts on Sunday, January 5 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) with “The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo.” But the drama begins with the first episode. ABC describes Galavis meeting the ladies for the first time like this. ” Nikki, a stunning nurse who causes men’s hearts to flutter, presents a stethoscope to Juan Pablo so he can listen to her heart beat. Lucy, a flower child who resists glamming up, arrives barefoot to tempt the Bachelor with her unassuming nature. Kat, an energetic and bubbly dancer, invites Juan Pablo to show off his patented sexy salsa moves. Lauren S. pulls out all the stops as the pretty music composer peddles in on a “piano bike,” playing her own composition. Kelly brings a surprise date – her adorable dog, Molly. But it is Clare that delivers the jaw-dropping moment of the night when she arrives seven months pregnant. Yikes!”
