Jamie Otis from The Bachelor 16 with Ben Flajnik

Meet Jamie Otis, 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: Are those black leather shorts in her official ABC studio portrait? I think so!

Con: I’m not really sure if this is a con, but Jamie was third runner up in the 2011 New York Perfect Miss pageant, earning her the title of 6th Avenue’s Perfect Miss.

Heterosexual dude notes: Jamie’s looking pretty good, especially in the “Jamie meets Ben Flajnik” photo below, but for me a girl that lists “Danielle Steele or Nora Roberts” as her favorite author is a serious red flag.
