Ashley Hebert is the New 'Bachelorette'
The new 'Bachelorette' was announced Monday night on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and it's one other than 'Bachelor' veteran, Ashley Hebert.
The 26-year-old dental student was one of Brad Womack's top picks, and she only narrowly missed out on making it to the finale. Speaking about being picked to be the new 'Bachelorette,' Hebert told People, "I feel like this season taught me so much about myself. ... It primed me for a new relationship. I'm ready to meet 25 new guys. Bring 'em on!"
Production on Season 7 of 'The Bachelorette' is already underway, but Jimmy Kimmel made things all official by swearing-in Hebert on his show. Among the things she's now pledged to do is promising "to use the word 'amazing' between eight and 40 times per show."
Talking to Kimmel about her experiences with Womack, she said "I think it all turned out for the best. When I saw him on that date [with Emily], I could see in his eyes that he was really happy, so it gave me closure."
Hebert also said that her family is very excited for her to embark on this adventure, though she's unsure if her exes are as thrilled: "I haven't talked to them in a long time, so I don't really know."
'The Bachelorette' Season 7 is due to premiere May 23rd on ABC.
