Meet Blakeley Shea Jones, 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.

Blakeley is a fully licensed sexpot with a resume that includes being a Hooters calendar girl (UPDATE – and Hooters Energy Drink can model) and a member of the Maxim “Hot 100” in 2006. She’s also the object of fellow contestant Monica Spannbauer, who reportedly “puts the moves” on Blakeley during taping. Could it be that ABC is trying to appeal to the male audience a little more here?

How about some sexy funk music and a video of Blakeley in several hundred stages of undress? You got it…

And in case you can’t watch Youtube, here’s a still image for you:

Pro: Blakeley is a professional hottie, and as far as the stereotypical criteria go, the sexiest woman in the competition.

Con: Blakeley is a professional hottie, and as far as the stereotypical criteria go, the sexiest woman in the competition. That usually either means she’s not going to really be that serious about the competition or else she’s going to be T-R-O-U-B-L-E! (Or both)

Heterosexual dude notes: I’m sure ABC struck a deal with Ben early on that whether he liked Blakeley or not he would keep her around until they have some sort of bikini date / photo shoot. (See: Michelle Money) And don’t take that as curmudgeonry because I CANNOT WAIT!

Yes!! Halo, she is a teacup long haired Chihuahua and my everything.

Who is your favorite actor and why?
Edward Norton – his ability to completely take on his character. He’s amazing!

I would cook them their favorite meal. Cooking requires a lot of time, patience and love: not too many people take the time anymore for the simple things in life.

What’s your worst date memory?
I went with some friends to meet up with this guy only to find out his girlfriend was there.
