The ladies are now arriving on The Bachelor season 27, and as expected, the limo entrances have been fun, silly, and even a little strange! We’ve seen many hugs, the gifting of Vermont maple syrup, a kiss, and even a lick! We’re happy to see some of the contestants are very confident and forward with their approaches because the show is always more entertaining that way. One of the women we get to meet tonight is Christina Mandrell, a 26-year-old content creator from Nashville, Tennessee.

Whether or not you already have a few favorites in the competition for Zach Shallcross‘ final rose, there are no doubt some memorable contestants just from the premiere alone. Christina makes a name for herself pretty quickly with her bubbly and outgoing personality, and as it turns out, she’s from a famous family! If you hear her talk about her country music-making aunt and are curious to learn more, here are all the details.

The Bachelor season 27: Who is Barbara Mandrell?

Christina’s aunt is American musician Barbara Mandrell, who’s had a ton of success in country music. The 74-year-old singer has had three songs on the Billboard Top 100, including “If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don’t Want To Be Right)” from 1978, “Fooled by a Feeling” from 1979, and “Woman to Woman” from 1977. She’s considered by many to be one of the best country music singers from the ’70s.

Barbara Mandrell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009, and two years before that she received the honor of having a star on Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame.

The Bachelor season 27: What is Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters?

And Christina’s aunt isn’t the only one who’s enjoyed her time in the spotlight! Along with Barbara’s career as a singer, she also had her own variety show in the ’80s which aired on NBC titled Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters. The series featured her sisters, Christina’s mom Irlene Mandrell and her aunt Louise Mandrell. Both ladies are also known for their careers in TV and music.

Fingers crossed Christina makes it far on Zach’s season of The Bachelor! New episodes air every Monday night on ABC.
