Dental Student Ashley Hebert Named as Newest Bachelorette

'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

The star of The Bachelorette, season 7, was recently unveiled to be Ashley Hebert. TV Guide reports that ABC is following the trend of taking a bachelorette who was eliminated during the Bachelor to take the star role in the spin-off. This past season, as bachelor Brad narrowed his choices down to two women, Ashley was eliminated. Hebert, 26, is a dental student of Madawaska, Maine. Mike Fleiss, creator of Bachelor, told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s also the first time we had an actual professional woman as a bachelorette. She’s not a party planner, she’s a dentist!” Fleiss went on to comment, “That’s a good step for us. I think it’s a cool good lesson for young ladies out there to see an accomplished woman still struggling to put the personal side of her life together. That’s something a lot of women can relate to. She will be a different kind of bachelorette.”
