How is this for Minnesota nice? Two Minnesotans are going to be representing the state we love on The Bachelor next season.

The cast for the upcoming season of The Bachelor was announced late Monday (October 6th) and two women from Minnesota are going to be fighting for love. So who are these two women and where exactly in Minnesota are they from?

First, we have Michelle Young. She is 27 years old and hails from Woodbury, Minnesota, which is just a few hours from Duluth. Not much is known about her just yet but spoiler king Reality Steve did some digging and found a few other photos of the soon-to-be reality star.

As if having one Minnesotan on the show isn't awesome enough, this season we are going to have two! The second woman headed to the silver screen is Anna Redman. She is a 24-year-old from Owatonna. She doesn't currently live in Minnesota but she is from there so we will take it! Like Michelle, little is known for now about Anna but we will surely learn more as the new season airs.

Both girls will be vying for the heart of this season's lead Matt James. He was announced as the next star of the show back in June. According to ABC's website, he is a real estate broker, entrepreneur and community organization founder. Sadly, we will have to wait until 2021 to watch the next season unfold. We already know who we are rooting for!

By the way, this isn't the first time a Minnesotan has been cast on the show. In fact, just a few years ago, a woman from the Land of 10,000 Lakes was on The Bachelor and eventually was the lead on The Bachelorette. Maybe one of these two women will be one day, too!
