Stepping into a house full of women to compete for the attention of one man sounds very intimidating to many, however, for Serena Chew it sounded like the perfect opportunity to find love. As one of the contestants on season 25 of The Bachelor, Serena is ready to settle down and she’s hoping that Matt James will be the perfect person for her. At the end of the first episode Serena was able to breathe a sigh of relief after receiving a rose from Matt.

3. She Studied Public Health
