Dec 6, 2012

Sean Lowe now has his harem. At least most of it.

ABC on Wednesday announced a cast of 25 women who will vie for Lowe's heart on the next edition of "The Bachelor." In a news release, the network also noted that an additional "mystery woman" will be revealed during the season premiere on Jan. 7.

The group includes an aspiring wedding dress designer, a former cheerleader, a woman obsessed with the bondage bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey," and a beautiful blonde who was born with one arm.

Also among the cast is a Bay Area resident -- a 24-year-old named Daniella, described as a commercial casting associate from San Francisco.

In the opener, Lowe, 28, will hand out his first roses and trim the field to 19.
