Meet Ashley Hebert, a 26-year-old dance instructor originally from Madawaska, Maine and currently enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ashley is one of 30 women that will be competing on Season 15 of The Bachelor in which Brad Womack tries for the second time to find the love of his life. The season premiere is set for Monday, January 3 at 8/7c on ABC, but for those fans of The Bachelor out there with little patience I offer up just about all the info there is to find on the internet pertaining to the very attractive and super-fit Ashley Hebert in this edition of The Bachelor Files!
UPDATE – Let’s change this to The Bachelorette Files because Ashley Hebert has officially been announced as the next Bachelorette!
Ashley Hebert was born and raised in Madawaska, Maine and first studied dance at the Main Street Dance Studio in Edmundston, New Brunswick. She continued to pursue her love of dance at the University of Maine where she captained the University of Maine Dance Team on her way to receiving a degree in biology with a minor in dance in 2006.
Ashley used her dancing talents and extraordinary good looks to take home the title of Maine Junior Miss in 2002 and also win a number of Junior Miss scholarships, both on the state and national level. (See her complete resume at the bottom of this post)

Upon graduating from the University of Maine, Ashley relocated to Hawaii for a short period of time, before moving back to the mainland and eventually enrolling in the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, where she is currently a student.
On ABC’s bio page for Ashley they have a brief question and answer session in which Ashley addresses some entertaining topics:
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you bring and why?
Phone – to connect with family/friends and listen to music
Toothbrush/paste – can’t stand a dirty feeling mouth
Sunscreen – stay young!
Do you speak any other languages other than English?
No. Understand French
Inner right wrist
Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Yes! I watch all the movies, think about ideal romantic dates and am very hopeful for extreme romance to enter my life.
In reference to the tattoo on her wrist, Reality Steve reports on his blog that it reads, “Crazy Beautiful.” It seems obvious half of that is true, we’ll have to wait for the shows to air to see about the crazy half!
Speaking of Reality Steve, he also mentions on his blog that Ashley had a longtime ex boyfriend die just before going on the show. I couldn’t find out anything about that tragedy online but I am certain we will get to know more about it during the season.

Ashley isn’t the only hot chick from Madawaska, Maine though – she also has a sexy older sister! 33-year-old Chrystie Hebert-Corns (She mostly goes by Chrystie Corns online) is a tattooed brunette with an addiction to social media and coupon clipping! She is divorced with a son and daughter and currently lives in Portland, Maine. Her ex-husband Nick is in the Coast Guard and was stationed in Hawaii for a while, which might explain why Ashley was there.
Proving that she has the looks to hang with her younger sister, Chrystie took home the title of Miss Madawaska in 1996, presumably before getting all that ink work done.
Chrystie is a bit of an internet entrepreneur and in addition to being an experienced eBay trading assistant she runs her own marketing company (Thirteen Thirty) and runs a coupon clipping blog at ilovetogossip.com. You can also check out Chrystie on Youtube and on Twitter (@ccmaine). Be sure to scroll down to December 15 to catch these tweets about her sister Ashley being on The Bachelor:
For those that don’t know,my sister is on the Bachelor
I haven’t watched in years either! But I’ll be tuning in this season )
Haha. The media storm begins. Just hope they can get their Aroostook county towns right!
Haha! I may be Miss Madawaska..but i think it is my sister who will put it on the map
If Ashley can survive through to the hometown dates then Chrystie may just be right! Be sure to tune in to the season premiere of The Bachelor on Monday, January 3, 2011 at 8/7c on ABC!
