Meet Amber Bacon, one of twenty-five eligible bachelorettes competing for the heart of hunky wine maker Ben Flajnik on Season 16 of The Bachelor set to premiere January 2, 2012 on ABC.
Pro: Last name is Bacon.
Con: She’s from British Columbia so it’s technically Canadian Bacon.
Heterosexual dude notes: My first impression tells me Amber is loud. Not necessarily a bad thing, it all depends on if she’s smart and funny. She’s a maternity nurse, and that probably means she has a fondness for babies. Once again, not necessarily a bad thing, it just depends on what Ben is looking for. Her most romantic gift was a mix CD? At least she should be easy to impress.
Occupation: Labor and Delivery Nurse at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminister, British Columbia.
Hometown: Port Coquitlam, Canada
What is your favorite memory from childhood?
Going to the woods around Halloween and finding the “witches den” and actually finding the broomstick and hat of witches!! (Not knowing my mom would go into the woods alone and hid those things for us to find in advance) Very Exciting!
What is your favorite all-time book and why?
Eat Pray Love. Because it is an inspirational book that reminds me happiness is not a stroke of luck or good fortune. It is something we can have often if we work to see the beauty in the everyday, enjoy all our moments and insist upon daily happiness.
What’s your worst date memory?
Falling down outside of the car after getting dropped of by a date.
Tattoo Count: 0
What is the most romantic present you have ever received and why?
A CD made with a list of why every song was chosen and how it applied to me.
