Dainty dentist Ashley Hebert didn’t win Brad Womack’s love and affection on The Bachelor, but gets her own shot at 25 hunks on this season’s edition of The Bachelorette.
Hebert found in Monday’s opener, that bonding with some of her suitors is about as fun as root canal, though she seemed to hit it off with Ryan, a hunky 31-year-old businessman who she awarded with a first impression rose.
“From the second you stepped out of the limo, something about you just got my attention,” she told Ryan, who looks a lot like Glee star Matthew Morrison.
Hebert wrote on her blog on People, “Coming into this experience, I had a list of a few things I was looking for in a husband, and the first night, I saw ALL of those in Ryan P. He deserved the first impression rose more than anyone.
“On top of that, when he walked out of the limo, I nearly fainted.” (Love at first sight?)
The brunette beauty, 26, will travel to exotic destinations such as as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Las Vegas and the Fiji Islands in her quest to find love this season. She follows in the footsteps of past Bachelorettes such as Trista Rehn, Meredith Phillips, Jennifer Schefft, DeAnna Pappas, Jillian Harris and Ali Fedotowsky.
The Bachelorette airs on Monday at 8/7c ABC.
