A Little Rock native will look to win over this season's bachelor and receive a coveted rose each week on ABC's The Bachelor, premiering Monday night.

Rachel Tchen, 23, is one of 28 contestants hoping to charm Ben Higgins of Denver, Colo., in the reality competition's 20th season, according to ABC's website.

At the end of Monday's show, seven people will be eliminated, the network said.

In a bio posted on the website, Tchen described some unique aspects of her personality, including choosing the Cookie Monster as her favorite animal and believing that gift-giving is her "love language."

Higgins, 26, was sent home by Kaitlyn Bristowe on ABC's The Bachelorette in its 11th season.

Each week, a contestant who does not receive a rose is sent home. The contestants spend time with the bachelor, getting to know each other on dates until one woman receives the last rose during the season finale.

The Bachelor airs at 7 p.m. Mondays on ABC. Bachelor Live airs as a one-hour after-show discussing each week's episode.

    We don't not need to know this crap. So this girl is incredibly desperate and a gold digger, who cares?? Let her high quality ass go do it then. She is evidently shallow as all get out.
