Bachelor Contestant Erika Uhlig

Meet Miss Chicago Erika Uhlig in a new video introduction. Find out why she’s excited to date Ben.

Bachelor contestant Erika Uhlig couldn’t wait to meet Ben Flajnik before she started filming the new season. In a new promo video for the show that she filmed prior to meeting Ben, Erika reveals that Ben’s dedication to his family makes him very attractive.

“My grandmother taught me in life, it’s always good to put your family first,” Erika confesses in the Warner Bros Bachelor fan site video. “Ben seems to be very genuine and very real and I think that he really likes somebody who’s in touch with their family. That’s something that’s actually really attractive.”

Erika continues to introduce herself. “My name is Erika,” she says. “I’m 23 years old and I’m Miss Chicago.”

“I think people think terrible things about pageant girls,” Erika shares. “People think pageant girls are stupid, but I am a current law student at the University of Illinois College of Law and I am pursuing a legal career.”

Erika likes being Miss Chicago. “I feel extremely fortunate to be Miss Chicago,” she admits. “It’s a great platform for doing community service.”

“I think I’m really ready for this,” Erika says about going on The Bachelor. “I’m really excited about it.”
