Elyse Myers from The Bachelor Season 16 with Ben Flajnik 2012

Meet Elyse Myers, 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: Elyse is a personal trainer with a degree in exercise physiology. Healthy is always a pro!

Con: Ben Flajnik doesn’t seem to be all that obsessed with personal fitness so he could be put off by someone healthier (and potentially stronger!) than he is.

Heterosexual dude notes: I’m in love. The only potential drawback is that (due to their low body fat?) a good number of really fit attractive women do elect to have breast implants, and that’s just not my thing.
