The Bachelor Sneak Peek: Meet Nick Viall's Girls!

by at .  Updated at .

Nick Viall is back and looking for love, and now we know some of the women he's got on his radar (see The Bachelor spoilers for specifics).

The Bachelor premieres January 2, and while we won't learn who Nick Viall picks with his final rose, we'll see plenty of first impressions.

What kind of women made the casting cut in Season 21?

More so than past seasons, the women appear to be gainfully employed and at least somewhat diverse, neither of which are by accident.

In August, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said there was a “need to increase the pool of diverse candidates in the beginning.”

From an "unemployed nurse" to a "travel nurse" to a "doula," there are plenty of women in the medical field (seven to be exact here).

The cast of 30 women is largely brunette, which would fit Nick's type, judging by his epic near-misses with Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman.

Of the 30, the number of women in their 20s is ... 27.

Viall is 36 years old, yet only three women are 30 or above. The oldest woman in the cast is 31, and the youngest is 23 (four times over).

Also 14 of the 30 women have tattoos.

In addition to the medical personnel, there's a model, a wedding videographer, a business owner (and a small business owner, to boot).

There's a restaurant server (waitress?!), marketing manager, photographer, chef, flight attendant, a pro basketball dancer, and an attorney.

There's a food truck owner, Pilates instructor, two teachers and an even an aspiring dolphin trainer ... 'cause you gotta aspire to big things.

Check out the first look below!
