Casey Shteamer from The Bachelor Season 16 with Ben Flajnik 2012

Meet Casey Shteamer, 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: There’s just something about the last name “Shteamer” that screams innuendo.

Con: Ummmm. I got nothing. Could we have an early favorite here?

Heterosexual dude notes: That there is a 100% all-American Midwestern cutie pie! I think if I ran into Casey at a bar and was lucky enough to get an introduction and she revealed to me that her name was Casey Shteamer… What’s a manly word for smitten?
