Night one on 'The Bachelor' and its spinoffs is always so exciting. A number of things are happening simultaneously. Suitors/suitresses are being brought in, the introductions happen with the leads, there are some kisses shared, claws come out too, and most importantly, the first impression rose is being handed out to the one who stands out the most to the lead. This person on the recently premiered Season 25 of 'The Bachelor' happened to be Abigail Heringer. Here's everything you need to know about her.

Abigail by all means established herself as the suitress to watch out for by receiving the first impression rose from Matt James on night one. The 25-year-old financial manager from Beaverton, Oregon, charmed the franchise's first Black Bachelor with her radiant smile replete with dimples as well as her vulnerable side. She was born with congenital hearing loss and wears cochlear implants to hear better. She was heard telling Matt that she'd be looking at his lips a lot to understand what he might be saying, as a fair warning so as to not be mistaken for a creep. Matt couldn't contain his beaming smile and he replied back to her, stating that he won't mind enunciating for her. This is about her time on the show but here's some information about who she is as an individual.

The Oregonian beauty finds joy in the smallest of things and her idea of perfect happiness is a cold local microbrew on a beautiful day. Her hearing impairment has never slowed her down and neither does it come in the way of her life. She enjoys being outdoors and when not working, she's always around her family as she believes they bring out the best in her.

Her official bio on ABC states that she's looking for a man who will lift her up and leave her with the feeling like just the two of them exist in the whole universe. She is not the one to seek someone with looks, and even though it could be an added plus, she's looking to meet someone with whom she can connect on a deeper level which she believes is the foundation of a successful relationship. Abigail's bio further states that she's not the one to fall for someone at first sight but judging by her interaction with Matt on night one, it seems like she's falling hard for him. Tune in to the season to watch how her journey unfolds.
