Read our recap of The Bachelor 2017 season 21 premiere!

If you've ever been on a job interview, a first date, or stuck in the back of an awkward Uber Pool, you know how hard it can be to sum yourself up in fun, stranger-friendly facts. Next time, turn to the ladies of The Bachelor for icebreaker inspiration.

To pump you up for Season 21 of ABC's glitziest reality dating contest, the network released bios for each of the lovely ladies vying for repeat Bachelor Nick Viall's heart. Each woman shares her height down to the quarter-inch, most profound fears, chaste guilty pleasures, and the animal with which she most identifies (dolphin). They also provide detailed tattoo descriptions, to better identify the cast's multiple Danielles, Elizabeths, and Jasmines; and inadvertently double as promotion for network neighbor Scandal, which premieres a new season later in the month.

Presented without commentary -- they say more than enough on their own -- behold the beautiful stories of next month's Bachelor class:
