Meet 'The Mormon Bachelorette' Ashley Chapman

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Season three of "The Mormon Bachelorette" is about to start., and this year's woman looking for a lifetime made is Ashley Chapman.

She stopped by 3TV to chat with Kaley O'Kelley about the 22 blind first dates she'll be going on as part of the Internet reality show.

"They are truly blind," Chapman said. "I don't know who they are. I don't know who is going to be on my doorstep each time, and I don't know what we're doing."

Chapman has already been on several of those dates, one of which involved cliff jumping at Box Canyon.

Guys are flying in from all over the country to meet Chapman, which means many of them are trying to plan a special date in an area they're unfamiliar with.

"When you've got them going to these great efforts, you have to be sensitive to that," she said. "They're really putting themselves out there .... I try my very best to be completely open, to be the best date possible.

"In the end, it's really hard because there are several I connect with and really like," she continued.

The new season of "The Mormon Bachelorette" premieres today online at www.TheMormonBachelorette.com.
