The Bachelor Recap: Shawntel Newton Resuscitated, Pronounced Dead on Arrival

The Bachelor really cranked up the absurdity this week, with girls skiing in San Francisco in bikinis, a contestant leaving voluntarily, one from last season inexplicably returning only to be rejected the same night, one fainting during the rose ceremony (!) and more.

In the end, Ben Flajnik narrowed the field to 15 women, with the rest of us wondering what lengths this awesomely terrible "reality" show will go to next.

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.

The Bachelor Season Preview: Who IS SHE!?!?

The Bachelor Season Preview: Who IS SHE!?!?

The epic, four-minute trailer for the all-new season of The Bachelor that aired at the end of last night's season premiere has to be seen to be believed.

It has the feel of a big-budget film, not a reality show. Clearly, ABC ditched any pretense of love and ramped up the nudity, side plots and suspense.

ABC has revealed some new photos of The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik, and something's definitely missing. Two things, actually. His signature moles? No more!

The California winemaker, who captured America's heart over the summer after being cast off by The Bachelorette's Ashley Hebert, still has his killer smile.

The Bachelor Sneak Peek: Horse Girl Hostility!

Give Lindzi Cox, or more likely The Bachelor story editors, credit for originality.

When the ABC sort-of-reality show returns Monday, January 2, the Ocala, Fla., native will make an entrance UNLIKE ANY IN BACHELOR HISTORY (spoken with uber-dramatic Chris Harrison voice inflection). Spoiler alert - she's on a horse!

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.
