Sarah Powell: Meet The Bachelor's other CO contestant, sans Madison McKinley's fangs

Madison McKinley is the Colorado contestant on The Bachelor who's getting the most attention. And no wonder, given McKinley's vampire fangs and recent turn as a blood-donation dominatrix. But she's not the only woman seeking a love match with douchebag Brad Womack this season.

Meet Denver's own Sarah Powell, aka Sarah P.

Powell's Bachelor bio, on view below, identifies her as a real estate broker, although the Denver Post's Bill Husted reports that she's also a server at LoDo's Bar & Grill in Highlands Ranch.

On the season's two episodes thus far, she hasn't made much of an impression, tending to blend in with the other similarly blond and pretty contestants. But host Chris Harrison's blog for Entertainment Weekly suggests she's got more of a spark than we've seen thus far. In segments that didn't make the final cut of Monday's edition, he writes that she dove into a pool with her clothes on, followed closely by McKinley. She also conspired with Ashley S. and Lindsay to protect themselves against Madison's vampirism, making crosses from branches found in the backyard of the group home and stuffing cloves of garlic under mattresses.

If she keeps up such shenanigans, producers will have to give her a longer look, won't they? Here's a larger photo and her aforementioned Bachelor bio:
