The Bachelorette is doing things differently for its 15th season starring Hannah Brown.  

For the first time ever, the ABC dating show will allow a surveillance van filled with the lead's friends to keep a watchful eye on the contestants during the cocktail party, the network announced via press release on Friday. 

"Hannah's Angels," aka Bachelor standouts Demi Burnett and Katie Morton, will be parked in the van near the Bachelor Mansion, ready to keep tabs on the 30 men -- that's right, it's not 33, like the men whose headshots we had previously seen -- fighting for Hannah's heart on night one. 

By the end of the cocktail party, Hannah will say goodbye to eight more men, leaving her with a group of 22 suitors heading into week two. The group will travel to Scotland, the Netherlands, Latvia and Greece this season, with Jason Biggs, Jenny Mollen, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier of the Boston Celtics, Miss J. Alexander and drag queens Alyssa Edwards and Alaska making celebrity appearances. Lukas Graham and Jake Owen will also give special performances during the season. 

Hannah gave a teaser of what kind of man she's looking for during her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

"Oh man, they gotta be good looking," she joked. "... Just a good human. Good heart, kind, strong, but ultimately I want at the end of this to know that they know me. And know every part of me. And not just some version of myself that I, like, package together and am like, 'Do you like this?' And I think I've done that in the past. But the good and the bad and I want that in return."
