Meet the women of ''Bachelorettes in Alaska''

Meet the women of ”Bachelorettes in Alaska.” The scoop on the flirt, the goody-goody, and the baby-machine wannabe

Looking for Love: Bachelorettes in Alaska
I Want a Husband: Alaska: FOX

Men, beware: Distaff payback for ABC’s ”The Bachelor” has begun. Thumbing a nose at that show’s guy-friendly 25 to 1 odds, Fox is letting women call the shots on ”Looking for Love: Bachelorettes in Alaska” (debuts Sunday, June 2, 9 p.m.).

In the first episode, the parka-clad femmes (no sexy ”Survivor” tube tops on this snowbound series) peruse a pack of more than 40 bachelors before picking a ”Man on Ice” — their date for the week. In each of the following episodes, a group of new men attempt to woo the women away from their current beaus. Think ”Bachelor” + ”Temptation Island” +… maturity?

OK, that last is perhaps an overstatement, but these grown-up women (average age: 31) aren’t afraid to bare their souls (or bodies) to find Mr. Right. EW.com gives you the inside track on the potential brides-to-be.
