It's just a matter of time before Season 22 of The Bachelor kicks off, with Arie Luyendyk Jr. distributing roses to the small crowd of women vying for his affection. The season premieres on the first of January 2018, but there's no reason to wait for the episode to air if you want to get introduced to the upcoming cast members. Checking out Arie's Bachelor contestants on Instagram can give you a hint at their personalities and how they'll do on the show. You'll be spending weeks watching these women, and it could be fun to start figuring out who your early favorite might be — or guessing who might end up with Arie when the whole thing concludes.

There will be 29 girls in total when Arie's season begins, but unfortunately not all of them are available on social media. There are always a few contestants who delete or privatize their accounts after joining the show, probably aware of how many strangers are going to start flooding their mentions. They may activate their Instagram accounts again as it gets closer to their debut on the show, but until that happens there are still plenty of contestants with public accounts. Here are all 24 of them.

Chelsea Roy

Hailing from Portland, Maine, Chelsea works in real estate and has a three-year-old son.

Lauren is a social media manager from Dallas, Texas. She also seems to have a knack for running into celebrities in her home town.
