The group of 30 men who will compete for Michelle Young‘s heart on The Bachelorette season 18 has been revealed.

Young, a 28-year-old fifth grade teacher and former Division I college basketball player from Edina, Minnesota, will meet a group that includes a professional football player, two firefighters, a mathematician, two personal trainers and someone who describes himself as a “pizzapreneur,” which we can only assume is a combo of the words “pizza” and “entrepreneur.”

She will also have help from former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe, who will return as co-hosts.

Young first appeared as a late arrival to Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor earlier this year. During James’ After the Final Rose special, it was announced that she and her fellow contestant Katie Thurston would be the franchise’s next two Bachelorettes. Thurston’s season ended with a proposal from Blake Moynes last month.

Young’s season of The Bachelorette premieres Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
