professional basketball player loaded with southern charm and an intense
romantic who isn't afraid to confront the other men about their intentions.
Despite their differences, the men have one thing in common - they are all
here to win the DeAnna's heart. Papas has her work cut out for her in the
premiere episode as she must eliminate ten of the 25 bachelors, leaving 15 men
to compete for her heart.
