Former Batavia Teacher on ABC's "The Bachelor"

Attention fans of ABC's "The Bachelor" who live in Genesee County: I need a little help uncovering the full name of one of the 25 women who will be taking part in the 13th edition of the romantic reality show.

According to today's ABC release, one of the women out to steal the heart of Jason Mesnick, an account executive in estate and legacy planning, is a 32-year-old teacher from Batavia, N.Y. ABC has only released her first name -- Sharon. The release notes that she "admits that she quit her job as a school teacher for a chance to be with him."

Since Batavia isn't the biggest city in the state, I''m guessing someone out there knows her last name. If so, email me at

For the purposes of this blog, tell me if having a contestant from the area will be an incentive to watch the show, which premieres Jan. 5. Or have you had enough of this phony romantic show?

The "big" news in this edition, is single mothers will be competitors for the first time in "Bachelor" history. ABC adds that Mesnick is a a single father.
