ABC's The Bachelor kicks off for another drama-filled season tonight.

What's different about this season, for the first time ever a woman from North Dakota will be a contestant.  Introducing Madi Johnson.  As you can see from the photos below, she is stunning.

What's unique about this season of the Bachelor is they finally threw North Dakota a bone.  According to Entertainment Tonight, North Dakota and South Dakota are part of only a handful of states who have never had a contestant on the reality show before.  Not anymore!


Madison (Madi) Johnson, is a 26-year-old woman from Fargo, North Dakota who owns her own consulting company in the medical aesthetic industry.

Madison will be looking to gain the attention of 26-year-old Zach Shallcross, who was one of the finalists of this past season's The Bachelorette.  According to an article on Deadline, Zach is a 26-year-old tech exec from Anaheim, California.  Here's a look at Zach.

According to SK Pop, Madi Johnson obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees in communication from Western Michigan University. She received a presidential scholar award at graduation, given to the best students in each department.  Pretty impressive.

So are her pictures on her Instagram account.  Here are a couple more for you.


I think it's pretty safe to say the Bachelor, Zach Shallcross would have to be crazy to not give this lady from North Dakota a rose tonight.  Hopefully, we will get to find out a little bit about her on the show tonight.

Bring on the cat fight and best of luck Madi.  Make North Dakota proud.
