Here is the ABC Press Release from 5/2/16:


JoJo Fletcher Begins Her Search for Prince Charming on the Season Premiere of ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette,’ Monday, May 23

SEASON PREMIERE
FAN FAVORITE AND SOUTHERN SWEETHEART JOJO FLETCHER BEGINS THE SEARCH  FOR HER PRINCE CHARMING ON ABC’S HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES  ‘THE BACHELORETTE,’ PREMIERING FOR ITS 12TH SEASON, MONDAY, MAY 23, ON ABC


  Former Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe, Desiree Hartsock Siegfried and Ali Fedotowsky Offer Their Support and Advice


This Season’s Highlights Include Performances by R&B Chartbusters All-4-One and  Popular Country Singers Dan + Shay, Appearances by ESPN’s ‘SportsNation’ Hosts
Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley and Romantic Excursions to Uruguay and Argentina


Successful and stunning real estate developer JoJo Fletcher, 25, gets a second chance at her happily-ever-after, choosing from twenty-six handsome bachelors. After being devastated last season by a shocking rejection from Bachelor Ben Higgins, who confessed his love to both her and Lauren Bushnell, the Texan beauty is ready to leave that heartbreak behind and write her very own love story as the Bachelorette. JoJo will embark on her own journey to find her soul mate when she stars in the 12th edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelorette,” which will premiere at a special time MONDAY, MAY 23 (9:01–11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Editors’ note: “The Bachelorette” will return to its regular time slot on Monday, May 30 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT).


In “Episode 1201,” a long, exciting night awaits JoJo, but first, a trio of former Bachelorettes: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Desiree Hartsock Siegfried and Ali Fedotowsky, return to offer some practical advice on how Jo Jo should handle the jitters, drama and emotional pitfalls as she searches for her future husband. They warn her that there is a big difference between red hot chemistry and love. A nervous but beaming Bachelorette is blown away by the lengths some of the bachelors go to create a memorable first meeting. One southern gentleman uses his guitar to charm JoJo with a song he wrote for her. A DJ brings a classic R&B group, All-4-One, to serenade her. One shy man shows off his Scottish heritage – and legs – by wearing a kilt. But one bachelor really stands out by riding in on a unicorn, harkening back to JoJo’s own entrance on “The Bachelor.”

The men continue to try and dazzle the Bachelorette during their one-on-one time. One bachelor steals her away and attempts to wow her with some push-ups. Some guys are so overwhelmed that they get off to an awkward start: One man asks for a kiss too soon and another has such an immediate attraction to Jojo, it leads to the first kiss of the season. The pressure mounts as Chris Harrison brings out the first impression rose, leading to some drunken antics by three inebriated men. JoJo wonders if some of these guys are here to meet her or just party. However, she does find a bachelor who deserves the first impression rose and he accepts it quite happily as his jealous contemporaries look on.

But it wouldn’t be a first rose ceremony without a surprise. An unexpected visitor from the past arrives and pulls the shocked Bachelorette aside, as the other men wonder if they have new competition for JoJo’s heart. After the night is over, 20 men remain to try and become the love of JoJo’s life.
A list of bachelors will be released at a later date.

Romantic and adventurous dates will reach new heights this season, testing the men’s perseverance in pursuing their romantic objective, along with fun, exciting and exotic dates that will elicit real and raw passions. An action-packed schedule in California begins with an escapade that takes JoJo and 10 lucky men to a firefighting training facility where they are put through boot camp-like challenges. Another exploit will find one suitor joining the Bachelorette in San Francisco for a romantic picnic by the Golden Gate Bridge. Six excited bachelors are invited to the set of ESPN’s popular “SportsNation,” where hosts Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley promise to help JoJo find the perfect guy. In one of the wildest group dates, 12 unsuspecting guys are asked to share their sexual experiences in front of JoJo and a live audience. The remaining men travel to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where one fortunate man gets an unusual date with JoJo, sledding through the woods to a hot tub and then being entertained by country music duo Dan + Shay. A group of men enjoy a dream date at Pittsburgh’s famed Heinz Field for a day of football with some familiar faces.

An excited Bachelorette and her remaining suitors travel to Punta del Este, Uruguay, to begin the international leg of their journey. JoJo whisks one bachelor to Isla de Lobos, an island which is  inhabited by thousands of seals, and the duo swims among them. Then it is a short jump to the beautiful and historic capitol of Argentina: Buenos Aires.  JoJo and one man show off their moves in the sexy Fuerza Bruta stage production. Leaving the bustle of Buenos Aires behind, the group travels to the Argentinian countryside, including a day steeped in gaucho culture. However, the Bachelorette will need to make some of her most important decisions before traveling back to the U.S. for hometown dates. Finally, JoJo and the last three men head to a secret exotic location where she will find out what the future holds for her.

As in the past, men will continue to be eliminated each week, but if at any point a man should decide that he’s no longer interested in the Bachelorette, he can reject her invitation to continue dating. Some lucky men will meet her family, and she will visit their hometowns for a slice of their lives in an effort to determine the man with whom she is most compatible.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelorette” is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Elan Gale, Bennett Graebner, Peter J. Scalettar and Nicole Woods are the executive producers. “The Bachelorette” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 stereo surround sound. A parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.

Good job Slaw, but can you mix it up with Press Releases that include pictures - specifically JoJo Bikini shots.  Think of it like Nat Geographic Magazine and Playboy - just the pictures, no articles.

Also, any chance you can post some pictures of other Posters ...heh  heh  heh.....I'd pay top $$$$$

I don't have any pictures to post and the ABC Press releases do not contain any pictures.  There is a section that has pictures of the first episode but you cannot copy and print them unless you have that access and I believe you have to belong to or be a member of the press to apply for that access.

Here is the ABC Press Release from 5/12/16


JoJo Fletcher Begins Her Search for That One Special Man When ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ Premieres Monday, May 23

JOJO FLETCHER BEGINS HER SEARCH FOR THAT ONE SPECIAL MAN WHEN
‘THE BACHELORETTE’ PREMIERES MONDAY, MAY 23, ON ABC


JOJO’s Suitors are Revealed
WHO SHOWS UP UNANNOUNCED TO SURPRISE HER?


What do a buffed firefighter, who saves lives for a living; a former pro quarterback, who is driven and confident; a charming bachelor with movie star good looks, an Olympian body and super-size ego; a courageous war veteran, who was a platoon leader in the Afghan war; and a devoted single dad juggling to raise three boys while running a chain of erectile dysfunction clinics have in common? They’re all on the hunt for JoJo when the 12th edition of the female version of ABC’s popular romance reality series, “The Bachelorette,” premieres on MONDAY, MAY 23, at a special time (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Editors’ note: “The Bachelorette” will return to its regular time slot on Monday, May 30 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT).
A stunning JoJo steels herself for the experience of a lifetime and the possibility of finding her Prince Charming. The unforgettable first meetings begin with James Taylor, a southern singer who gets right to the heart of the matter, singing an original song written just for the Bachelorette. Wells, a radio DJ from Nashville, ups the ante by bringing the classic R&B group All-4-One to serenade JoJo. And it’s Christmas in May as jolly St. Nick, Nick B., brings a bag full of gifts. Not to be outdone, Canadian Jonathan, proud of his Scottish heritage, rocks a kilt. However, Luke makes a spectacular entrance on a unicorn, trying to immediately connect to JoJo and her arrival on “The Bachelor.”

Inside the mansion, the men continue to captivate JoJo. Alex, a U.S. Marine, boldly steals her away to demonstrate his physical prowess, showing off with a string of pushups. Jordan, a former pro quarterback, tries a quarterback sneak, and after a conversation where the chemistry is burning hot, JoJo gets her first real kiss of the season.

Three bachelors look like they are there to just party, and one strips down to his underwear, leading JoJo to wonder if the men are there for the “right reasons.” But JoJo does find a worthy recipient for the “first impression rose” – much to the horror of his envious competitors.

The first rose ceremony comes to a screeching halt before it even begins, as a surprise visitor lures the stunned Bachelorette away. The apprehensive men, worried that they have another bachelor to challenge them, have to hope they are among the 20 left to move into the mansion and continue in the race for the Bachelorette’s heart.

JoJo’s 26 suitors are:

Alex, 26, a U.S. Marine from Oceanside, CA

Ali, 27, a bartender from Santa Monica, CA

Brandon, 28, a hipster from Los Angeles, CA

Chad, 28, a luxury real estate agent from Tulsa, OK

Chase, 27, a medical sale representative from Highlands Ranch, CO

Christian, 26, a telecom consultant from Los Angeles, CA

Colin “Coley,” 27, a real estate consultant from Chicago, IL

Daniel, 31, a Canadian from Vancouver, B.C., Canada

Derek, 29, a commercial banker from Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Evan, 33, an erectile dysfunction specialist from Nashville, TN

Grant, 28, a firefighter from San Francisco, CA

Jake, 27, a landscape architect from Playa Vista, CA

James F., 34, a boxing club owner from Nashville, TN

James S., 27, a “Bachelor” superfan from Phoenix, AZ

James Taylor, 29, a singer-songwriter from Katy, TX

Jonathan, 29, a technical sales representative from Vancouver, B.C., Canada

Jordan, 27, a former pro quarterback, Chico, CA

Luke, 31, a war veteran from Burnet, TX

Nick B., 33, an electrical engineer, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Nick S., 26, a software salesman from San Francisco, CA

Peter, 26, a staffing agency manager from Chicago, IL

Robert “Robby,” 27, a former competitive swimmer from Jacksonville, FL

Sal, 28, an operations manager from Fort Lauderdale, FL

Vincent “Vinny,” 28, a barber from Delray Beach, FL

Wells, 31, a radio DJ from Nashville, TN

William “Will,” 26, a civil engineer from Jersey City, NJ

Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelorette” is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Elan Gale, Bennett Graebner, Peter J. Scalettar and Nicole Woods are the executive producers. “The Bachelorette” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 stereo surround sound.
