NEW YORK -- Colton Underwood will meet 30 beautiful and accomplished women when he begins his journey as The Bachelor on ABC next month.

Before his journey begins, Colton will talk with Chris Harrison about the backlash he received after he was announced as the new Bachelor and his readiness to become a husband.

Top of mind for most viewers in Bachelor Nation is what will happen when Colton is in the fantasy suites? The self-proclaimed virgin says that he is keeping an open mind and anything is possible.

Night one, Colton is swept away by a very assertive woman, and he is surprised at how much chemistry he feels with some of the others as well. There are even a few kisses.

The 30 women who will vie for Colton's heart are the following:
