Trista Rehn

ABC 9-10 PM

We can’t reveal the lucky guy’s identity, but, says ABC exec Andrea Wong, ”he will turn the show on its head.” Even if he doesn’t, the net has already ordered up ”The Bachelorette” (featuring last season’s runner-up Trista) for January 2003. But ”the rose ceremony has to change,” says Fleiss. Maybe Trista could hand the winners a TV remote? (Sept. 25)
