For whatever reason, after last night's episode, The Bachelor decided it would unveil the mystery woman in red who makes an appearance in next week's installment.
Shawntel Newton, the mortician from last season who made it all the way to the final four and earned a hometown date with Brad Womack, enters the contest!
Apparently, fellow Northern Californian Shawntel made no secret of wanting to date Ben Flajnik after The Bachelorette and talked the producers into this stunt.
How long will she stick around? That we'll have to wait and find out. Or read The Bachelor spoilers we've compiled thus far and read Reality Steve's best guess.
Either way, check out the promo for next week's episode below:
