Fourth-year Penn Dental student Ashley Hebert, previously eliminated from The Bachelor, was announced early Tuesday as the next Bachelorette.

ABC used Jimmy Kimmel's show to introduce her, following The Bachelor's finale. Brad Womack chose Emily Maynard.

"I think it all turned out for the best," she told Kimmel. "When I saw him on that date [with Emily], I could see in his eyes that he was really happy, so it gave me closure."

"I feel like this season taught me so much about myself," Hebert, 26, told People mag. "It primed me for a new relationship. I'm ready to meet 25 new guys."

Hebert returned to Philly a couple of weeks ago, where she supposedly shot promotional videos surrounding the next season of The Bachelorette. By sheer coincidence, it is said, she encountered former Bachelor contestant Reid Rosenthal on the street in Center City.

The Bachelorette premieres May 23.
