The Bachelor contestant Amber T from Season 16 with Ben Flajnik

Meet Amber Tierney, 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: Amber is from Nebraska and for some reason that sounds like fun to me! (Who doesn’t like a nice roll in the hay?)

Con: Critical care nurse? Something tells me that’s going to be a hard sales pitch for the perpetually upbeat Ben.

Heterosexual dude notes: Does anyone else get the first impression that Amber T is a bit of a badass? She’s lookin’ tough in these photos! She looks like the kind of gal that has given more than one drunk jerk a black eye.
