  26. Sheryl - Elderly lady on crutches (not really a contestant)

In an effort to outdo themselves the season prior, producers cast an elderly woman in season 16. What's the catch on this one? Will Ben actually keep a woman that much older than him around for too long? The saying stanger things have happened doesn't apply here. The woman represents a different angle, but it's not known what exactly yet.

Several of the contestants listed above for "The Bachelor" 2012 have been named by blogger, Reality Steve. He normally leaks the majority of cast names until ABC releases the official contestant line-up as they did on December 7th. This time the network beat him at listing all 25 contestants in one full list. A few things to note include spellings of names Steve had in his blog versus what ABC released.

"The Bachelor" 2012, season 16 will air Monday nights on ABC at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
