What better way to ring in the new year than with a new season of The Bachelor? After his heartbreaking elimination on Michelle Young‘s Season 18 of The Bachelorette, former NFL player Clayton Echard will get his second chance at love as the star of The Bachelor Season 26, which premieres on January 3.

After a shortlist of potential contestants was released back in October, ABC has released the official lineup of 31 women from across the country and abroad who will try to win Echard’s heart. Season 26 will return to the iconic Bachelor Mansion with new host Jesse Palmer for what has been described as “the most dramatic season ever.”

A trailer for the upcoming season even teased that Echard will fall in love with his final three contestants (find out who they might be here)!
