Shortly after Becca Kufrin was unceremoniously dumped by Arie Luyendyk Jr. on last season of "The Bachelor," the Minnesota-based publicist will have 28 new men to meet in the season premiere of "The Bachelorette."

On Thursday, ABC revealed the identities of Kufrin's suitors, including a model, a former Harlem Globetrotter and a former professional football player.
"Bachelorette" Chris Harrison host told "Good Morning America" that the grace Kufrin showed during her televised breakup helped the new contestants better understand what type of person she is. However, it also impacted the way she responded to them.
"Right up until the final day with Becca, that was something that always stood out in the back of her mind, was, 'I don't want to be hurt like that,' but conversely, she didn't want to hurt anybody like that," Harrison said. "She was extremely careful -- maybe too careful -- not to give too much up of herself. She was very reluctant to let anybody know how she was feeling."
In the season premiere of the show, which airs May 28 at 8 p.m. ET, Kufrin, 28, will whittle down the group to 21. Harrison said that a few of the suitors stood out to him were David, who has a "rather unfortunate incident early on," Leo, whose personality isn't necessarily reflected in his appearance, and Lincoln, whom Harrison described as "a very interesting guy."
In the end, Harrison said that Kufrin's decision was "very difficult."
"I think she understands what Arie goes through," Harrison said. "It is grueling, emotional, tough. Very tough decision."
