WASHINGTON, DC — D.C. resident Luke Stone has been cast to appear in the upcoming season of ABC's hit show "The Bachelorette." The network released a list of the season 15 hopefuls on Facebook earlier this month.

In case you're a newcomer to the reality drama, "The Bachelorette" is a spin-off of "The Bachelor," and follows a leading lady on her quest for love. Over the course of the season, the bachelorette dates multiple men until she finds a potential husband.

On this season of "The Bachelorette," Stone will try to outlast 32 other contestants and win Hannah Brown's heart. Brown — a 24-year-old interior decorator from Alabama — was a contestant on the 23rd season of "The Bachelor."

Stone, 29, is a part-time waiter at Stoney's on P Street, according to multiple outlets.

"He wanted it to be Hannah,"Reese Edmonds, Stoney's bar manager, told DCist. "When he told me, I was a little intrigued. He said he thought he knew who the girl was: 'I do want it to be this chick from the South, her name is Hannah. She's really cute and goofy.' He really wanted it to be her."

According to his LinkedIn profile, Stone graduated from The George Washington University in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in political science and art history. The 29-year-old has worked for Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) as a staff assistant and for StateScape as a regulatory and legislative analyst. Stone is currently a fundraising consultant at Fraioli & Associates.

You can check out Stone and the rest of the contestants on ABC's "The Bachelorette," which premieres Monday, May 13, at 8 p.m.
