CHICO, Calif. -

Viewers in the Northstate will have extra reason to tune in to The Bachelor next month on ABC-TV.

A Chico woman will be among more than 20 women who will participate in season 15 of The Bachelor.

The bachelor is Brad Womack who made headlines for not picking anyone during his previous stint as the bachelor.

Now Womack is back looking for love a second time.

Due to contractual obligations with the contestant and ABC, we have agreed not to reveal the name of the local woman who will appear on the show, but she does appear in several promos that are airing right now.

The list of contestants will be released December 16th on the ABC website. The show begins January 3rd on KRCR Newschannel 7 and all ABC stations.
