In June, ABC revealed the 25 new suitors who will be vying for Jenn’s heart in the upcoming season, which premieres tonight, July 8.

ET’s Denny Directo spoke with Jenn — who fans first met on Joey Graziadei‘s season of The Bachelor — just before she began her Bachelorette journey, and she opened up about what she’s looking for in a man.

“I want someone to ground me,” she shared. “I’ve always said, I’m a Sagittarius, I’m a fire sign, so I’m a little crazy… I bring that fiery energy and I want someone to, like, have a little bit of fiery energy, but also to ground me a little bit. Put me in a place.”

And her number one deal-breaker? “Chewing with your mouth open.”

As for how she’ll approach her love story, Jenn told ET, “I’m really just gonna be my freaking self and that means all the good, the bad, and the chaotic, and the psychotic. That’s really what you’re gonna have to look forward to. You’re not going to get polished Jenn, sad and perfect Jenn. You’re going to get crazy Jenn.”
