Savannah Morris
Model, MP Management
Age: 23 Insta: @savannahdelane
Originally from: Statesboro Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
Morris moved from her tiny hometown to the big city at age 18 to pursue her dreams and never looked back. Now, the self-professed tomboy (“I played four sports competitively growing up,” she says) loves traveling and meeting new people through her modeling gigs, as well as volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and Atlanta Humane Society. The Battery Atlanta is a weekend go-to, as well as Falcons and Hawks games—just pour her a margarita, and this Kennesaw State alum is one happy girl.

Ayla Humphrey
Lifestyle blogger
Age: 23 Insta: @aylaelizabeth
Originally from: Crestview, Fla. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
After graduating from The University of Alabama, this statuesque brunette is now showcasing her fashion savvy via daily looks on her blog. “I love being able to express myself,” she says, citing Olivia Culpo as her style icon. “It’s also so much fun meeting and connecting with other women and bloggers from all over.” A supporter of the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Humphrey can be spotted sweating it out at Pure Barre or stocking up on new threads at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta or Phipps Plaza.

Erica Bogart
Owner, Erica Bogart Beauty

Relationship status: Single
“My career allows me to meet new people and travel the world,” says this Georgia State University alum and makeup artist extraordinaire, who’s best known for her beautiful, big smile. Though her work has already made it into Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue Italia, she still has things left to check off of her bucket list: notably, a sunrise launch at the Cappadocia Turkey hot air balloon festival. At home in ATL, find Bogart anywhere fresh pizza and pasta are served—she is Italian, after all.

Beth Brettschneider
Director of Key Accounts, Georgia Crown Distributing Co.
Age: 31 Insta: @beth_brett
Originally from: Lilburn Lives in: Brookhaven
Relationship status: Single
Raise a glass to this #girlboss who’s helping shape the culture around alcohol. “Whether it’s enjoying a beverage with friends on the BeltLine or having a bottle of wine at dinner with your family or significant other, we get to play a big part of creating that,” explains the Valdosta State University alum, who loves hanging out in Inman Park. She’s also an avid supporter of Dining for Women, Habitat for Humanity and American Red Cross, and, fittingly, says drinking rosé in Provence, France, is her idea of the perfect vacation.

Charly Kilpatrick
Human resources coordinator, iVision
Age: 22 Insta: @charlyjunee
Originally from: Cumming Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: Engaged
This bright-eyed blonde, who’s a recent graduate of Valdosta State University, says her favorite thing about her job in HR is “being able to work with others and make their jobs and lives easier in any way that I can.” Outside of her 9 to 5, she’s probably hanging out at The Painted Duck, Ponce City Market or The Southern Gentleman; belting out rap songs in her car; or planning her upcoming wedding—and dream honeymoon to Greece.

Charlie Culberson
Shortstop, Atlanta Braves
Age: 29 Insta: @charlieculberson
Originally from: Rome, Ga. Lives in: Marietta
Relationship status: Married
Not only does this total stud get to call the blond bombshell on the right his wife of seven years Nov. 5(!), but Charlie is one of the lucky few whose home team is in his hometown. Off the field, the Georgia native loves snagging a ticket to country concerts (especially if it’s Darius Rucker, Cole Swindell or Jason Aldean taking the stage) as much as he loves a good Stranger Things or old-school Will & Grace marathon and a glass of red wine with Sarah once their
three little ones are tucked in.

Sarah Culberson
Stay-at-home mom
Age: 31 Insta: @sayculberson
Originally from: Augusta Lives in: Marietta
Relationship status: Married
When she’s not posted up at SunTrust Park to watch her hubby play his heart out on the field, this registered nurse-turned-mom is superbusy keeping up with her and Charlie’s three kids—Ace, Collins and Everly. Between balancing motherhood and me-time, Sarah still manages to make room in her schedule for giving back with the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, where she and Charlie are currently matching any money donated to the cancer treatment center through BreakingT.

Amanda Coker
Wedding/senior photographer and owner, Dash Photography
Age: 31 Insta: @dashphotographyatl
Originally from: Gainesville, Ga. Lives in: Alpharetta
Relationship status: Married
This talented photographer loves her job, and it shows. “I get to celebrate with people day in and day out, and not just celebrate, but create art that allows them to physically hold their memories,” Coker says. When she’s not capturing weddings, the brunette babe enjoys working with Bert’s Big Adventure, indulging in a little karaoke at Dark Horse Tavern and scouting out the best local doughnut shops while traveling with her husband.

Lex Lauletta
Actor, J Pervis Talent Agency
Age: 23 Insta: @lexlauletta
Originally from: Woodstock Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: Single
Though he’s still on the hunt for his other half, Lauletta was a perfect match with a patient last year in need of bone marrow, which the selfless SCAD graduate donated to help cure her two rare forms of blood cancer through Atlanta-based Be The Match, a nonprofit run by the National Marrow Donor Program. Note to Atlanta’s single ladies: He also says the best compliment he’s ever received is when a father told him he’s just about the only guy he’d let his daughter date—and he’s an advocate for ordering the large bowl of queso. Sounds promising to us.

Allison James
Age: 29 Insta:
Originally from: Perry Lives in: West Midtown
Relationship status: Married
“I’ve been drawing since I could hold a crayon in my hand at 2 years old and have never looked back,” says the stylish James, who left her job with Anthropologie a year ago to pursue art full time and now has work featured in galleries all over the city. And, as an artist mentor, she’s dedicated to helping other emerging creatives follow their dreams too. Outside of the studio, find her cheering on the Braves or sipping a craft beer at Scofflaw Brewing Co.

Shannon Wilkie
Hair stylist, Preesh Salon; and model, Dollhouse Management
Age: 24 Insta: @shannonvwilkie
Originally from: Buford Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: In a relationship
As a stylist, Wilkie is a people-person through and through. “I love being able to hear about what all of my clients have been through and being able to share some really special moments with them,” says the Adriana Lima look-alike, who models on the side. Wilkie’s also a total ’90s baby, claiming her favorite show is Friends and her current playlist has a mix from ’90s alt to hip-hop. Spot her “anywhere with amazing street tacos,” she says.

Hania Rios
Model, Ursula Wiedmann Models
Age: 22 Insta: @haniarios
Originally from: Gainesville, Ga. Lives in: Downtown
Relationship status: In a relationship
Rios is living her best life as a fashion model: “I get to work with so many different creatives and brands and bring visions to life,” shares the Georgia State alum, who also helps mentor aspiring models via Panthers Allure and recently started fostering kittens—aw! In her spare time, she likes to squeeze in classes at Vibe Ride Midtown or hit the BeltLine; but at home, she’s channeling her creative side by either painting or playing the piano.

Laura Rutledge
Reporter and on-air personality, ESPN/SEC Network
Age: 30 Insta: @lauramrutledge
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Roswell
Relationship status: Married
The stunning reporter lives and breathes SEC sports, but her job is even more than that: “I love telling stories,” says the University of Florida alum, “especially people trusting us with their stories and developing that trust.” Though you’ll typically find Rutledge on the field or behind the desk as the host of SEC Nation, she loves coming home to Canton Street in Roswell or visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden. And despite all of her success, there’s one thing she’s still trying to master: the art of cooking. “My mom is basically a gourmet chef and she’s self-taught,” Rutledge shares. “I’m always calling her, like, ‘Mom, what do I do?!’”

Austin Edwards
Financial Professional Associate, Prudential financial
Age: 23 Insta: @the_austinedwards
Originally from: Macon Lives in: Woodstock
Relationship status: In a relationship
You won’t find this Kennesaw State University graduate glued to the TV when the weekend hits; instead, the numbers expert can be seen imbibing a freshly brewed cup of coffee, traveling or wherever the hottest DJ is playing in the city on a Saturday night. His go-to artists right now? Dillon Francis, Diplo, Slander and Illenium.

Sumiyah Simjee
Freelance makeup artist
Age: 27 Insta: @sumiyahxsimjee
Originally from: Karachi, Pakistan Lives in: Lilburn
Relationship status: Married
Simjee says her proudest moment was getting her bachelor’s from Georgia State in three years with a full academic scholarship and while working part time. Now this beauty’s married to her high-school sweetheart and loves boosting her clients’ self-esteem on a daily basis. A talented cook herself, she’s obsessed with Chick-fil-A (who isn’t?) but heads to Farm Burger on Sundays— and she’s a big fan of country music.

Joe Vince
Aeronautical Engineer, Lockheed Martin
Age: 27 Insta: @j.vincee
Originally from: Clearwater, Fla. Lives in: West Midtown
Relationship status: In a relationship
You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as passionate about their job as Vince. “It legitimately feels like I’m making a difference,” he says. “The C-130J Super Hercules, the aircraft I work on, is utilized in all branches of our military and was even used to provide aid to Puerto Rico after it was devastated by Hurricane Maria.”

Sydney Holsclaw
Public relations coordinator, Phase 3 Marketing & Communications
Age: 23 Insta: @sydneyholsclaw
Originally from: Mariett Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
This outgoing Auburn University alum—with a deep love for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton—can be spotted bartending at The Ivy Buckhead on weekends or grabbing a marg at Superica. Holsclaw says that seeing her younger brother, who is on the autism spectrum, graduate from high school was a moment that made her “the proudest sister ever.”

Derek Jett
Management consultant, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Age: 27 Insta: @derekrjett
Originally from: Newnan Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: Single
A recent group of party people awarded Jett the superlative of most likely to make the ladies swoon with his green eyes (he says he even has the certificate to prove it)—well, we can attest to that. The cancer survivor says he has Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to thank, and now he spends his days giving back at the hospital—otherwise he’s probably at bartaco.

Brian Fletcher
Booking agent/social media coordinator, Asad Mecci; direct sales, Rock Bottom Creative Agency; and musician
Age: 29 Insta: @sbfletchjr
Originally from: Arlington, Texas Lives in: Brookhaven
Relationship status: In a relationship
You’d probably never guess it upon first impression, but this Auburn University alum can rap serious bars. The former Kansas City Royals player, who hails from Texas, takes interest in creating music, and “any and all dessert.” Not to mention his heart of gold: Fletcher volunteers to coach baseball for Atlanta’s youth during the week.

Breeona Chamberlain
Bartender, The Ivy Buckhead; Guest service specialist, BACH; and independent consultant, Rodan + Fields
Age: 23 Insta: @br330na
Originally from: St. Louis Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Married
“I work in a family environment where everybody is there for each other, both at BACH and The Ivy,” says Chamberlain—and for the former, that’s certainly true since her hubby, fellow Most Beautiful Morgan Findlay, is a trainer at the Buckhead studio. The adventurous yogi—she dreams of going skydiving in New Zealand—supports the LifeLine Animal Project and has a vintage soul: She’s currently listening to ’80s hits and says her style icon is none other than Stevie Nicks.

Julian Horton
Actor, Bolt Entertainment; and music producer
Age: 26 Insta: @julianhorton12
Originally from: Philadelphia Lives in: Duluth
Relationship status: Single
This former wide receiver for the Arkansas Razorbacks traded in his shoulder pads for scripts to pursue a career in acting, but that hasn’t stopped him from leaving a little room for fun. From Red Martini to the Gold Room to Tongue & Groove, the Philly-born partygoer knows how to have a good time as much as he knows the importance of giving back. Through Rainbow Village, Horton helps with local issues of homelessness, poverty and domestic violence. We’ll raise a glass to that.

Justin Kanawyer
President and founder, Solcioty Fitness; and president and founder, Push Fitness
Age: 31 Insta: @justinkanawyer
Originally from: Gustine, Calif. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Single
If you hear a handsome voice ask for a whiskey neat at Little Alley Steak Buckhead, odds are it’s this clean-cut California native. “I’m a big foodie,” he says, so you can spot the Solcioty Fitness founder brunchin’ on the BeltLine (he loves anything outdoors!) or asking to see the dinner menu to go with his whiskey at Little Alley.

Archie Clay III
CEO and co-founder, Wearbrims; and creative director, 7xchange
Age: 28 Insta: @archieclaythe3rd
Originally from: Chattanooga, Tenn. Lives in: Westview
Relationship status: In a relationship
If you’re ever in need of style advice, this Tuskegee University grad is your go-to guy. After all, he started his own brimmed fedora brand that got its own special shoutout in Britain’s GQ magazine. But when he’s not busy being an entrepreneur, you can spot the South Atlantan sweating it out at X3 Sports (he’s a licensed boxer!) or ordering up an Old-Fashioned, his signature drink. As for the style icons that influence his swagger? He gives a nod to athletes P.J. Tucker and Travis Kelce.

Alexa Gilomen
Digital marketing strategist, Re/Max
Age: 22 Insta: @alexagilomen
Originally from: Suwanee Lives in: East Atlanta
Relationship status: In a relationship
The University of Georgia grad with gorgeous red locks—who was named Miss Cobb County 2018 in August—is an ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and volunteers for Songs for Kids and Atlanta Humane Society. Gilomen also loves all things music, from going to concerts at City Winery to writing and performing her own songs (fun fact: She was a semifinalist on American Idol seasons 12 and 13!).

Drew Duncan
President, Two Cousins’ Realty and Two Cousins’ Investments
Age: 26 Insta: @forrest.duncan
Originally from: Douglasville Lives in: Sandy Springs
Relationship status: Single
His relationship status reads ‘single,’ but, rest assured, this Tech grad’s golden retriever, Lucy, already has his heart. Weekends with this Atlantan might include a bite to eat at The Battery Atlanta and a round of golf—if he isn’t mentoring for Wheeler High School’s Magnet Program or fundraising for the Drake Davis Foundation.

Evelyn Kelley
Director of sales development, Indigo Payments
Age: 22 Insta: @evikelley
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Sandy Springs
Relationship status: In a relationship
University of Georgia alum Kelley is passionate about modeling and reading (“I’m a supernerd! I read at least two books a week,” she says), and supports orgs like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Atlanta Community Food Bank. When she’s not planning her next trip to a new country, she’s likely posted up at Skyline Park or The Ivy Buckhead with a Cosmo.

Zack Goodman
Senior Analyst, Online Merchandising, The Home Depot
Age: 25 Insta: @z.goodman
Originally from: Marietta Lives in: Brookhaven
Relationship status: Single
This Most Beautiful comes with a gorgeous smile to boot (just look at that grin!). When he’s not binge-watching The Office, this UGA alum can be seen cheering on his hometown team on game days at The Ivy Buckhead or at the hottest concert happening in the city. Not to mention he loves to cook. #swoon

India Welton
Owner and studio director, Solcioty Fitness buckhead
Age: 23 Insta: @indiawelton
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Engaged
The Ole Miss alum (fun fact: She was a pole vaulter in college) opened her own biz just after graduating and is now helping Atlantans live a healthier lifestyle. But that’s not all this fit blonde—who’s recently engaged!—has going on: She tutors disadvantaged kids, and has partnered with Atlanta Humane Society for a dog run Nov. 17 to promote adoption and fundraising.

Mari Hassan
Sixth-grade math teacher, Dekalb County
Age: 27 Insta: @merrymari29
Originally from: Dacula Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Single
Inspiring the next gen—especially when it comes to math, an intimidating subject for most students—is what this gorgeous teacher is all about. “I love getting a chance to be a part of the kids’ lives and to model a young adult to them,” shares Hassan, who also supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation. When the bell rings, she’s off to Superica, SoulCycle or to check out one of the city’s many festivals. “Atlanta always has something cool happening,” she says. “I like to stay up to date so I don’t miss out!”

Toya Atkins
Account manager, ImageLink
Age: 33 Insta: @toyaashayla
Originally from: Destin, Fla. Lives in: Druid Hills
Relationship status: In a relationship
After a stint on the ABC reality show The Proposal, Atkins is now indulging in date nights at “any rooftop bar or Barcelona Wine Bar,” she says—that is, when she’s not working with Hands on Atlanta and Habitat for Humanity, or working out at BACH or Stellar Bodies. The University of Central Florida grad also plays on a championship-winning kickball team; loves to indulge in a nice spa day; and is looking forward to April 2019, when she’ll visit South Africa for the first time.

Hope Lavine
Sales consultant, Bridals by Lori
Age: 21 Insta: @hopelavine
Originally from: Pensacola, Fla. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Single
On top of being a member of the American Marketing Association Atlanta Chapter, volunteering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and fundraising for the American Cancer Society in honor of her mom, who’s a breast cancer survivor, LaVine is an advocate for self-love and body positivity through her job helping women “say yes to the dress.” Though weekends are hectic at work, the Florida native loves to unwind with a glass of wine at Gypsy Kitchen, Barcelona Wine Bar or Little Alley Steak Buckhead, and never misses out on Sunday brunch.

Lauren Fleming
Project consultant, Analytical Management Solutions
Age: 28 Insta: @laurennfleming
Originally from: Raleigh, N.C. Lives in: Roswell
Relationship status: Engaged
The North Carolina State University alum—who said “yes” to a proposal from the hunk seated next to her just weeks before JEZEBEL went to press—is killing it as one of the few women in her male-dominated industry, saying: “Working in construction, I love being able to help build and create something people depend on.” Fleming also volunteers at Atlanta Humane Society, using her photography skills to snap pics of the animals to boost their chances of being adopted. On weekends, spot this cute couple hiking trails along the Chattahoochee and cheering on Atlanta United FC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Pat Lapaglia
Senior Sales Engineer, Keyence Corporation of America
Age: 29 Insta: @patlapag
Originally from: Annapolis, Md. Lives in: Cumberland
Relationship status: Engaged
Maybe it was his infectious smile or impressive library of Atlanta rap albums on his iPhone that got the lucky lady on the left to say “yes” to his mountaintop proposal—but whatever it was, the two couldn’t be a more perfect fit. From volunteering at the Atlanta Humane Society to spending sunny days at The Battery Atlanta, this dynamic duo is all about the outdoors. When he’s flying solo, LaPaglia says, “I really enjoy working on cars, so I spend a lot of time tinkering with my truck and helping my friends out with their project cars.” Bet you’d never guess he also loves a good Broadway show.

Merrick Levy
Chief operating officer, Shofur
Age: 28 Insta: @merricklevy
Originally from: New York Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Single
From his hometown of New York, to Boston for his undergrad, this New York Knicks fan has since made his way down South to ATL, where his newfound obsession is biking around Buckhead, and he’s most proud of “maintaining great friendships with a busy schedule,” he says. From being the COO at Shofur to participating in the Boston University Alumni Association and Association for Corporate Growth,
this Beautiful really does stay busy—though he still makes time for a quick stop at Sweet Hut, his go-to
for curbing his sweet tooth.

Janna Oatright
Advanced aesthetic nurse, OVME Buckhead
Age: 28 Insta: @j_maria
Originally from: Folkston, Ga. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Engaged
“I love to make people smile when they look in the mirror and be happy with their appearance,” says the brunette bombshell of her job at premier Botox and cosmetic laser studio OVME (by the way, the studio donates 1 percent of all profits to Make-A-Wish Foundation). Things making Boatright smile these days? The sparkly diamond on her finger—her fiance proposed on a recent trip to Fiji—as well as a full schedule of upcoming Atlanta sporting events. Find her at Gypsy Kitchen, Little Alley Steak Buckhead and The Regent Cocktail Club, or sweating for the wedding at Barry’s Bootcamp and SculptHouse.

Brian Worley
Director of Design, BOLD Catering & Design
Age: 46 Insta: @brian.c.worley
Originally from: Austin, Texas Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: In a relationship
A man with an eye for design, Worley seems to have it all figured out: He says, “I get to be creative and spend someone else’s money.” When he’s not solely focused on outfitting an event space, though, Worley is wandering throughout the city, from Piedmont Park to Barry’s Bootcamp, plus fun festival-esque events like Moon Ride and the Lantern Parade. The Atlanta United FC fan has even backpacked 500 miles across Spain to finish Camino de Santiago, and he loves to bake—talk about your well-rounded (and well-dressed!) gentleman.

Sam Colbert
Leasing professional, Greystar
Age: 25 Insta: @samcolbert
Originally from: Monroeville, Ala. Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: Single
Pasttimes of this James Dean look-alike include ordering up a Ketel One martini at Park Tavern, playing soccer, wakeboarding and—wait for it—karaoke, proving this do-gooder doesn’t back down from a challenge. The only thing better than his karaoke skills is his balancing act, which comes in handy when volunteering at Atlanta Community Food Bank, Camp Hope, Walk for Alzheimer’s, Atlanta Humane Society and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Veronica Christiano
Realtor, Keller Williams Realty Buckhead
Age: 30 Insta: @veronicasherri
Originally from: Gainesville, Ga. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Married
This Beautiful, who could easily pass for Shay Mitchell’s sister, is all about the see-and-be-seen spots in the city. From Umi and Supply & Demand to Tongue & Groove and Big Sky Buckhead, the Georgia-bred beauty knows how to paint the town red with her #girlsquad in tow. If she was a DJ, though, you’d spot pop artists like The Chainsmokers, Post Malone and Ariana Grande on her playlist. As for her signature drink? That’d be a Moscow Mule.

Courtney Muller
Assistant Account Executive, Superjuice
Age: 22 Insta: @courtneymuller_
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
You can find this hometown hottie hopping from one buzzy spot to another when the weekend hits, from Le Bilboquet and Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall to The Regent Cocktail Club and Dark Horse Tavern. As far as her daily routine goes, a true-crime podcast is a must for this University of Alabama alum. Right now, she’s obsessed with Dirty John, S-Town and Up and Vanished. She also hopes to travel abroad one day to Bali; Tulum, Mexico; and Australia.

Logan Buntrock
Product Owner, Cisco Systems
Age: 30 Insta: @lbuntrock
Originally from: Elgin, Minn. Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Married
“I really enjoy opportunities to mentor kids and those less experienced than me about career and business,” says Buntrock, who regularly gives back through Junior Achievement, Toastmasters and North Atlanta Security Professionals. Clearly this Beautiful’s heart and personality are just as handsome, plus his good-husband game is strong. “I have to admit I have watched all the seasons of Southern Charm with my wife on Bravo.” #realmenwatchbravo

Jaclyn Fraser
Lifestyle/mommy blogger; model, MP Management; and independent consultant, Rodan + Fields
Age: 26 Insta: @jaclyn.fraser
Originally from: Woodstock Lives in: Alpharetta
Relationship status: Married
As the mama of a 2-year-old, Fraser’s proudest accomplishment is clear. “That used to be a tough question,” she says. “Now, it’s easy: my daughter, hands down.” The model, who works as a consultant for Rodan + Fields and is involved in the skincare co’s Prescription for Change Foundation, loves to spend time at Avalon with her husband and little one, indulge in true-crime podcasts, and listen to the classics: Elton John, Billy Joel and Paul McCartney.

Will Compton
Youth life coach; and motivational speaker
Age: 26 Insta: @w_compton22
Originally from: Suwanee Lives in: Marietta
Relationship status: Single
This self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur says, “You can find me roaming the BeltLine, Piedmont Park or at some unique coffee shop.” But, typically, you can find the American history buff onstage helping others in need of words of encouragement. He says, “It’s amazing to see a young adult become inspired through their own dreams and goals, and to even play a small part in helping them reach those goals and accomplishments.”

Chandler West
Makeup artist, Chandler West Makeup
Age: 22 Insta: @chandlerwest
Originally from: Alpharetta Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
Every day, West lifts up others by enhancing their natural features to bring out more of their confidence. But that’s not all: The stunning MUA (who was credited for her work on a feature film at age 19!) also offers her services to charities like Steve Hightower’s Thriving Children Gala and Teal to Heal Ovarian Cancer Organization. Find her around town getting her Pilates fix at Inspire Health Fitness or sipping an ice-cold glass of Champs at Le Bilboquet.

Vi Tran
Aesthetician, La Vie Artistry
Age: 25 Insta: @vitraaannn
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Brookhaven
Relationship status: Single
Tran is filled with surprises: She’s a huge basketball fan and loves to cheer on the Celtics; can speak three languages; and escaped an abusive relationship, which led to her helping other women who are victims of domestic violence. The beauty maven (who looks like Chrissy Teigen’s twin) counts Drybar, SoulCycle and TURN Studio among her top fit-and-fab spots, and Little Alley Steak Buckhead, Supply & Demand and The Ivy Buckhead as her nightlife go-tos.

Karina Zevallos
Owner, SHINE Pageants & Modeling
Age: 21 Insta: @karinazevallos
Originally from: Lima, Peru Lives in:
Buford Relationship status: Single
This international beauty says her job is more than just teaching kids how to walk and have great posture. “I get to work with students from all over Georgia and our bordering states, and learn about them,” she says. “SHINE is a safe place where students can come and be themselves, grow in self-confidence and know that we are family.” Additionally, Zevallos is the founder of A World Mission, a nonprofit that strives to help underprivileged kids worldwide, and she loves to dance—her favorite place to hit the floor is at Fernbank Museum of Natural History’s salsa nights.

Morgan Findlay
Trainer, BACH; and freelance actor and model
Age: 32 Insta: @morgan_findlay
Originally from: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: Married
From serving in the U.S. Navy for six years and earning his MBA to calling Antarctica home for six months, this Most Beautiful comes with a New Zealand accent and an affinity for adventure. When he’s not motivating Atlantans at BACH in Buckhead, Findlay—an animal lover if we’ve ever met one—can be found volunteering at PAWS Atlanta and the Atlanta Humane Society, or watching Animal Planet with his Most Beautiful wife, Breeona Chamberlain.

Austin Wood
Business consultant, Sprint
Age: 24 Insta: @austinconnerwood
Originally from: Snellville Lives in: OTP
Relationship status: Single
As if playing the guitar wasn’t swoonworthy enough, this Most Beautiful is about to be hotter by another degree—a master’s degree in school counseling, to be exact. Despite his deadlines, the city is still Wood’s playground, from The Painted Pin to a Braves game at SunTrust Park. But during football season, you can find the sports buff giving his full attention to the Florida Gators, and maybe squeezing in a quick episode of New Girl or a run to Chick-fil-A during halftime.

Amanda Dostie
Registered nurse, Piedmont Cancer Institute
Age: 27 Insta: @amanda_dostie
Originally from: Brunswick Lives in: Vinings
Relationship status: Married
This inside-and-out beauty (who happens to be an identical twin) is providing hope to the city one patient at a time. “As a nurse, I get to encourage my patients on days when they need it or even just be a listening ear,” Dostie explains. She’s also involved in Atlanta Dream Center’s homeless outreach and leads a small group bible study with her husband, who’s the youth pastor at their church, The Square. And something you’d never guess? She served as a combat medic in the Army National Guard for six years.

Kara Fountain
Marketing director, Southern Vein and Laser Center
Age: 27 Insta: @karaleann7
Originally from: Valdosta Lives in: Buckhead
Relationship status: In a relationship
A graduate of Valdosta State University, Fountain is now devoting her time to networking and planning awesome events for her company—with plenty of fun mixed in on the weekends, of course, from boating on Lake Lanier to bowling at The Painted Pin. But don’t let this bubbly blonde fool you: She’s a black belt in taekwondo, and her ultimate bucket list goal is to go skydiving in Dubai.

Eric Washington
Bartender, Bar Margot at Four
Seasons Hotel Atlanta
Age: 30 Insta: @squizz_knows
Originally from: Atlanta Lives in: Midtown
Relationship status: Single
Not only is this bartender well-versed in his cocktails, but also in his travels, with passport stamps from both Turkey and Greece. As for his signature drink? (You know you were curious.) The Florida A&M graduate says, “If I’m drinking it, it’s an Old-Fashioned. If I’m making it, it’s Bar Margot’s Gin Margot.” Pair either with his guilty pleasure, Taylor Swift music, and that’s a duo that never goes out of style.
