On Monday night, Rachel Lindsay will begin her journey to find love with one of 31 bachelors, some more eligible than others. The bios of T he Bachelorette season 13 contestants, released on Wednesday, are… a lot. So, to make things easy for you while you cram for the premiere, we’ve done the math on the whole batch and come away with some statistically significant fun facts you should know about the group. Here are this season’s crop of men, in numbers.
– Black men: 11
The most Black contestants that have ever been on the show, and over a third of the men.
– Average age: 30 (29.74 to be exact)
Rachel is 31, making this a much more respectable age gap compared to, say, Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor. The youngest is 26; the oldest, 37.

I’m sorry but that’s three too many and I’ve got to call the offenders out: Iggy ( “ I once got a boner during a board meeting. I had to present sitting down.”); Josiah (“[The craziest place I’ve had sex is] in my office at work!”); and
Fred (“Yes, there are times that I get aroused at work and I have to go back to my desk to avoid being noticed.”)
