Fans of CMT’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ have been anxiously awaiting the show’s return. When it was announced that a season 4 is happening, viewers were of course ecstatic. Though the ladies were hoping Bubba would be the bachelor this season, they were still excited to be introduced to the bachelorette instead: Kelsey Dee Smith is the lady who will be making or breaking hearts this season. On Wedneday, October 9, The Futon Critic released the names of Smith’s potential suitors.
Once again, 11 city guys and 11 country guys will be vying for the love of the leading lady. Like previous seasons, they will live together in a house in Fairhope, Alabama waiting on dates. As usual, we can probably expect some extreme animosity and drama as they are all trying to win the same lady’s heart.
According to the Futon Critic, the bachelors for season 4 are as follows:
The city boys:
· Alex Stein, 26 - Car salesman from Los Angeles, Calif.

If you previously tuned in to SWA, you may notice a familiar name amongst the country boys. Collin Varallo stole Devin Grissom’s attention on season 1, though she ultimately chose Adam Moyer in the end. The charming landscaper from Birmingham then went on to CMT’s “Southern Nights” series. Now, he is here again....but this time for Kelsey.
Speaking of Kelsey, she is a true Alabama girl – she was born and raised in Tuscaloosa. She considers herself a romantic and is ready to find love. In addition to studying elementary education, she has been an active volunteer. She also has competed in pageants, and enjoys SEC football. She has three sisters, and enjoys spending time with her family.
Like previous seasons, each of the 10 episodes will last an hour, and begin at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Every episode, Kelsey will send one of her hopefuls packing.
Though we have yet to see individual bios and pictures of Kelsey’s men, CMT did post a group photo on the ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ Facebook page today. They also said "more info on the guys to come."
Do you plan to watch ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ season 4? Do you think Collin will finally find love? Ladies, does anyone catch your eye in that group photo?
