Members of the Bachelor Nation are no strangers when it comes to the introduction of new Bachelor spinoff shows. In the Bachelor Franchise’s newest endeavor, The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart, contestants will be united through love and music as they embark on a journey to one through the other. Contestants will hope to fall in love using their passion for music and creativity as a guide.
Are you ready for the newest Bachelor installment? Here is the scoop on all of the contestants on the premiere season of Listen to Your Heart.
Brandon is an American Folk Pop singer from Nashville, Tennessee. He is a former marine who used music to get through his time serving. Brandon is one of my favorite contestants already from the first night. He is so sweet and has a really cute smile. In his talk with Julia he also seemed very straightforward and went for the kiss right away!
Bri is a pop singer from Provo, Utah. She hasn’t had the best of luck with love in the past, as she was previously engaged. Her intro was adorable though, as she talked about her nieces and nephews and how much they mean to her. Although she’s been burned in the past, it seems like Bri is ready to listen to her heart and find love again.
Sheridan is an R&B Soul Pop musician from Austin, Texas. His intro included him giving the viewers a tour of his Subaru, which doubles as his tour bus. Sheridan is looking for his co-pilot on Listen to Your Heart, as he puts it. In his pursuit of Julia, however, he seemed a little intimidated by the other men in the house. I’m hoping Sheridan can hold his own throughout this journey to find love.
Bekah is the musical theater musician of the group and she is from Washington, DC. Episode one did not provide too much on Bekah, aside from her talking to herself in a mirror. But she seems sweet and genuine. She is definitely on the pursuit to find love.
Gabe is a soul and folk singer from Houston, Texas. He seems like the all-around perfect guy. Gabe is an athlete who is also strong in his faith and involved in his church. He seems like one of the most genuine guys on this season and definitely someone who is looking to share their life with someone else.
Savannah is an acoustic pop singer from Nashville, Tennessee. She is also a yoga instructor. Definitely the sassy one of the group, Savannah left a lasting impression after night one. She knows what she is looking for in love, and she hasn’t found it in the past. Savannah could possibly find love on Listen to Your Heart, but she is going to need to open her horizons.
Trevor is a country-pop star from Encino, California. He was actually previously on American Idol. Trevor describes himself as a romantic and is just looking for someone to share music with. Although he put all his eggs in one basket on night one, in his conversations with some other people it sounds like all of that could be not what it seems.
Jamie is a pop-country singer from Nashville, Tennessee. In her intro she said every guy she has ever dated has cheated, so she is here looking for love. Although on night one she already seems to be headed in the wrong direction. She hit it off almost immediately with Ryan and a few moments later was also head over heels for Trevor. Night one love triangle– I don’t know if that is the best idea, Jamie!
Ryan is a jazz, funk, pop, and R&B musician from Dearborn Heights, Michigan. He seems like the sweetest guy ever after the premiere episode. In his first conversation with Jamie, he revealed when he was younger he had brain seizures which lead to a bunch of brain surgeries, and this allows him to now live life to the fullest.
Matt is a neo-soul artist from Encino, California. He seemed super sweet as well, in the first few moments he was already giving his jacket to a cold Rudi. Although Matt found himself in a love triangle on night one as well, which didn’t end well for him as the episode continued.
Cheyenne is an R&B musician from Lawndale, California. She is shy and sweet as it seems from episode one. She has strong Christian values and is looking for that in a man as well. Cheyenne is trying to listen to her heart in hopes of finding someone strong to love.
Chris is a soul artist from Los Angeles, California. He is also a wedding singer looking for a love story of his own. A quick connection with Bri might have him headed down the right path! And with that smile, how could you not love him.
Danny is a singer/songwriter from Sherman Oaks, California. He has hit it big online with over a million followers on his social platforms. Danny is ready to find someone to share life with and hit it big in love now, though. And he thinks his chance might be on Listen to Your Heart.
Jack is a country singer from Dallas, Texas. He isn’t alone in this journey, however, because he has a 3-year-old son. A super sweet guy with a purpose for working hard and achieving his dream, I think Jack has a great chance at finding love on Listen to Your Heart.
Josh is a country and pop artist from Nashville, Tennessee. Previously married, Josh knows what it takes to make a marriage not work, and now he is looking for someone to make it work with. The man dubbed “the singing uber driver,” Josh is a lighthearted and fun guy. He faded to the background for most of the first episode but was front and center with Julia on rose ceremony night.
Julia is a pop singer from Wayne, Pennsylvania. She seems like one of the most genuine girls in this new season. She is so cute and bubbly. Julia also revealed in her conversation with Sheridan that she runs her own non-profit. This organization funds music therapy programs for children’s hospitals. She does this because when she was younger she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
Mariana is an R&B and pop artist from Dallas, Texas. Although we didn’t meet her in the premiere episode, Mariana is a firecracker ready to find love. She was raised by her single dad in Texas. Mariana is ready to find someone who can accept and help her achieve her dreams.
Mel is an indie rock artist from Brooklyn, New York. She seemed to take a step back in the first episode and observe what was happening. Although, she did hit it off with Matt at first. While the rest of the girls were talking Mel didn’t seem to really add any input, she just listened to what the other girls were saying.
Micheal is a singer/songwriter from Atwater, California. He is definitely the biggest personality in the house. Immediately after walking into the house on night one, he was already showing off his vocal skills. Micheal is definitely a bit awkward with the ladies though, which might make his journey on Listen to Your Heart a little rocky.
Natascha is a pop musician from Los Angeles, California. She is a new addition to the show this week, so we have yet to get a view of her. However, Natascha being Chilean and French gives her an international step-up. She is ready to find someone to love her and her music and is hoping to do that here.
Ruby is an indie pop artist from Austin, Texas. She is also a new addition for week two, so again we didn’t get a chance to get to know her yet. Ruby became the youngest fiddle player to perform at the Grand Ole Opry after she started playing at just two years old. She has found luck in love with musicians before, dating some of her former bandmates. But Ruby is looking to find long-lasting love on Listen to your heart.
Rudi is an R&B and pop musician from San Antonio, Texas. In her opener, Rudi mentioned that she has “dated all of LA” and is ready to find someone new. She had luck with Matt right away night one. But, when Matt was exploring all of his options and took another girl on a date, we saw a glimpse of Rudi’s true colors. She got very jealous and possessive very quickly. I have a feeling producers might make her out to be a villain this season.
Russell is an American folk artist from New York City, New York. He slightly faded into the background on night one as I don’t remember seeing him possibly even more than once. But he is definitely cute and has a different look than most of the other guys. Russell is ready to find love along with a music partner.
