Clayton Echard's season of The Bachelor is just weeks away. The long-rumored next lead of the franchise's flagship series was confirmed last month, when an emotional first look at the 28-year-old orthopedic sales rep's season aired at the end of Michelle Young's hometown dates on The Bachelorette, and now, his official cast has been revealed.

Echard's contestants are mostly in their 20s. The average age is 27, with the youngest contestant, Jane, being 22. Several of the contestants are in their 30s, including Mara, Kate and Kira, who are all 32, making them the oldest of the group. Nearly half of the cast appear to be women of color.
