The 31 ladies who will compete for Clayton Echard‘s heart on The Bachelor season 26 have been revealed.

The 28-year-old medical sales rep from Columbia, Missouri will meet a group that includes five nurses, along with couple of other medical professionals, a former Olympian, a spray tanner and a bar mitzvah dancer.

He’ll be helped out by former New York Giants football player, former Bachelor and current ESPN football analyst Jesse Palmer, who will serve as host.

Clayton was first introduced as one of Michelle Young’s suitors in The Bachelorette‘s current 18th season and was sent home in one of the most gut-wrenching eliminations in franchise history. Clayton’s genuine desire to find a partner and start a family won over the hearts of Bachelor Nation and earned him a second shot at finding love.

Echard’s season of The Bachelor premieres Monday, January 3 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
