If there’s anything we can say for certain, it’s that Bachelor Ben Higgins deserves the best. (Or at the very least, a woman who can pull off wearing matching sweaters with him.)

And when his season kicks off in January, it seems that ABC is ready to give him, well, maybe that. ABC has revealed the identities of the 28 — read: he’s better than 25, but not quite good enough for 30! — women who will be fighting for Ben’s heart. Spoiler: There are two twins, two bartenders, one war veteran, one cowgirl, and one chicken enthusiast. In other words, get ready for some forever love, guys.
