The premiere of “The Bachelorette” will air from 9 to 11 p.m. Monday before moving to its regular timeslot of 8 to 10 p.m. on following Mondays.
A local man will be a contestant on the upcoming season of the ABC television romance reality show “The Bachelorette,” which premieres at 9 p.m. Monday.
Constantine “Dino” Tzortzis is a co-owner of his family’s restaurant, Giorgio’s at Lakeland Plaza in Cumming.
The 30-year-old will be one of 25 men vying for the heart of 27-year-old Ashley Hebert from Maine.
Hebert, who is finishing up her degree in dentistry, will eliminate men from the competition until just one remains at the end of the show’s seventh season.
Little information about Tzortzis or the other bachelors was available prior to the show airing.
A representative of ABC wrote in an e-mail to the Forsyth County News that “none of the men, their friends or families can do interviews until and if they are eliminated.”
The station also cannot comment on casting selections, the representative wrote.
Like many of the show’s previous bachelorettes, Hebert was selected after being eliminated from a previous season of “The Bachelor,” in which female contestants compete for a relationship with one man.
Other than Tzortzis, 'Bachelorette' contestants range in age from 26 to 35 and hail from 17 states and one other country.
