Introducing Jenn’s men

ABC has finally revealed the men who will vie for Jenn Tran's heart in season 21 of The Bachelorette, and by the looks of the cast, I suspect the competition will get pretty intense.

This morning on Instagram, the network announced all the guys who will join Tran, who you might recognize from Joey Graziadei's season of The Bachelor. This time, the 26-year-old will have her pick of 25 men who fall between the ages of 24 and 35. And just to give you an idea of her options, this season's lineup includes a physiotherapist, an aerospace engineer, a financial analyst and an army ranger veteran.

The caption reads, "Introducing: Jenn’s men! Don’t miss them on #TheBachelorette, premiering July 8 on ABC and Stream on Hulu."

It's worth noting that Tran is making history as the first Asian-American to be cast as the lead in Bachelor franchise history. And while she finished fifth in season 28, it comes as no surprise that she's now taking the spotlight, given how quickly she became a fan favorite.

While speaking with Bachelor Nation about her milestone achievement, she said, "I'm so honored and I'm so grateful for this opportunity, to be the first Asian American Bachelor of the franchise is historical and it feels monumental. I grew up not seeing a lot of Asian representation on TV and I felt constricted in what I could do because of that. I called my cousin when I found out—she's 12 years old—and she sobbed when I told her I was going to be the first Asian Bachelor...She was like, 'I'm really happy.' And I feel like that was kind of the moment where I was like, 'This is a lot bigger than just me.'"

According to her Bachelorette biography, Tran is now studying to become a physician's assistant and she's "ready to find love with a man who's as reliable and thoughtful as she is." Sounds like Tran is ready to get the ball rolling.

Season 21 will be hosted by Jesse Palmer, and you can tune in to the first episode on ABC on Monday, July 8.
