This year's lead is Jenn Tran. Fresh off finishing fifth in season 28 of “The Bachelor”, Tran makes history as the first Asian-American leading a season of the franchise. ABC have called their latest star “a sweet and compassionate woman who has dedicated her life to helping others and is currently studying to become a physician assistant. The bilingual Vietnamese beauty currently resides in Miami and is ready to find love with a man who's as reliable and thoughtful as she is.”

The male contestants hoping to receive a rose – and ultimately win the opportunity to propose – at the show's start included Aaron, an aerospace engineer whose twin brother has already found love on “Bachelor in Paradise”, military vet and wannabe astronaut Marcus, XFL player turned teacher Moze and Thomas, a former professional swimmer. 

Throughout the series, Tran is heading on a plethora of dates with the prospective partners, being whisked off to various exotic, romantic locations. Based on how well the dates go, the candidates are eliminated one by one, until one final match is given the chance to pop the question.
