SAN DIEGO — A 26-year-old account manager from San Diego was among the 30 bachelorettes announced Wednesday by ABC for the next season of “The Bachelor.”

Susannah Milan describes flying to Europe on a whim with one of her best friends as her greatest achievement; calls buying shoes her guilty pleasure and when asked if she could be any animal, what animal would she be, responded a lioness “because they’re queens of the jungle but still elegant.”

Milan will try to win the affection of Nick Viall, a 36-year-old technology salesman from Milwaukee who finished second on both the 2014 and 2015 seasons of “The Bachelorette” and was a contestant on “Bachelor in Paradise” in 2016, remaining on the show until its final episode.

“The Bachelor” will begin its 21st season on Jan. 2.

If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be and why? Chrissy Teigen. I want to know what it’s like to have such a perfect (looking) life.

What is your most embarrassing moment? When I tried to look sexy picking up a pen in front of my high school crush and banged my head into the table.

If you could be a fictional character, who would you be and why? This may be extra girly, but I would want to be Ariel. She’s a mermaid! Plus she has amazing hair and a seashell bra.

If you could be any fruit or vegetable, which one would you be? Watermelon, because they’re sweet and are best during summer.

If you could be any animal, which one and why? A lioness, because they’re queens of the jungle but still elegant.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure of any kind? Buying expensive shoes or not expensive shoes. I just love shoes.

What is your greatest achievement to date? Flying to Europe on a whim with one of my best friends.
