What can we expect from tonight's premiere of The Bachelor season 2?

From a dog groomer to a professional netball player to a wannabe princess, this new crop of "bachelorettes" is sure to be a lively bunch.

The 24 single ladies will meet The Bachelor Blake Garvey, a Perth real estate auctioneer, and attempt to catch his eye at a swanky cocktail party.

As we know from last year's debut series, the competitive atmosphere of the party makes for some saucy and cringe-worthy moments.

But before Blake gets thrown into the lionesses' den, there's the obligatory introduction to this year's "luckiest guy in Australia", as Blake calls himself.

Viewers will be treated to a few shots of the hunky Garvey with his shirt off, running, stretching, putting on a business shirt.

Having worked briefly as a topless waiter, Garvey's chiseled body proves he still finds time to keep fit amidst his plans to start up his own real estate company.

Hearts will swoon at the scenes of Garvey with his mum, who is keen for some grandchildren, and his grandmother, who is a crack up.

But back to tonight's all-important cocktail party, where first impressions are "key" according to Garvey.

And it seems many of the two dozen women have put a lot of thought into their arrivals, with promos showing one of the ladies arriving in roller skates and another holding a cocktail.

The efforts to make a unique first impression definitely ramp up this year but one woman, Laurina, is bucking the trend by playing hard to get.

Will her strategy pay off?

Then there's also the mystery of the new white rose, which will be revealed tonight.

Last year, Bachelor Tim Robards gave out red roses to the women he wanted to stay on the show. But Blake will have a single white rose to give to someone with special significance.

The Bachelor premieres tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
