Blond Holly from The Bachelor 16 with Ben Flajnik

Meet Holly, one of 25 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: Kentucky gal who hopefully has a thick Kentucky accent to match!

Con: I’m going to go way out on a limb here and say, completely based on her official ABC photo, that Holly laughs REALLY loud. (Anybody else gettin’ that vibe?)

Heterosexual dude notes: Frilly shirts are like lead for this heterosexual dude’s x-ray vision, but I think I can still make out an amazing figure under there!

Who do you admire most in the world and why?
My cousin Melanie – she lost her precious baby boy Andrew to cancer at age two. He was our little angel and I am amazed at how strong she is. She has been a wonderful mother to her now 13 year old daughter. She is the strongest person I know.

What is your favorite memory from your childhood?

Waking up on Christmas mornings – my parents were so awesome with the whole “Santa has just been here” they still say it! HA

Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Hopeless Romantic – I believe in fate and fairytale endings.

Tattoo Count: 0

What’s your worst date memory?
A blind date with an absolute geek that had on 80’s clothes in 1997 – couldn’t wait for it to end.
