Ashley Hebert is also a romantic, according to her profile quote on abc.go.com: “I watch all the movies, think about ideal romantic dates and am very hopeful for extreme romance to enter my life.”

Viewers will have to watch the reality show play out to see if Hebert falls in love with return bachelor Brad Womack.

“The Bachelor” is a reality show/dating game in which the female contestants all date the same bachelor, and some are eliminated every week during a rose ceremony leading up to the finale.
