What do a charming doctor working on the front lines against the pandemic, a Southern single dad looking for a wife to complete his family, a financial advisor with the looks and charm of a modern Great Gatsby, a handsome former athlete with personal hurdles that have left emotional scars and a former pro football player who lights up the room with his high-wattage smile all have in common? They are all on the hunt for love with Clare Crawley when the exciting, unprecedented 16th edition of “The Bachelorette” premieres TUESDAY, OCT. 13 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

In the season premiere, “1601,” Clare returns—this time to give out the roses—to find her soul mate from an impressive group of 31 bachelors who will pull out all the stops to vie for her heart.

Eazy, the former pro football player will score points with the Bachelorette, but will he make it to the end zone? Is Clare the woman of Yosef’s dreams or will their priorities clash? Can Bennett reveal a deeper level to his love and win the Bachelorette’s heart? Dale gives a great first impression, but does he have what it takes to make Clare his for a lifetime of happiness?
At the end of the night, 23 lucky bachelors remain to toast the Bachelorette, with hearts overflowing and romantic adventures yet to come.
