Ben kicks off the season by bringing in hunky bachelor Sean Lowe, Chris Soules, and Jason Mesnick for some good ole’ bro advice.
Ben shows us that he’s just another small town boy (who seemingly grew up in the same barn that Clark Kent grew up in??) just looking for love. blah blah. Let’s meet the girls!
This season there are (4) Laurens.. yep, four! So the odds of a Lauren winning is a solid 14% …Not bad.
Here are some that stood out to me (for better or worse):
Lauren H: Kindergarten teacher who said that if she could be anyone in the world it would be Chris Harrison… seriously?
Lauren B: Flight Attendant wearing the long sky blue dress. Basically girl next door and seemingly a front runner for Ben’s heart. When asked who she would be if she could be anyone in the world her answer was one of the first ladies… much better answer than Lauren H… Good Job Lauren B.
Lauren “LB”: I don’t even know. Now I’m just confused because we have a Lauren B and an LB? Wouldn’t both Lauren B’s be LB’s? Sorry, I got nothin.
Lauren R: Our 4th and final Lauren, thank goodness. She told Ben she had a leg up on the other girls because she stalked him on Social Media before coming on the show and Ben’s all like…
Laura: Not technically a Lauren, but still confusing. The one and only red head on the show who told Ben he could call her “Red Velvet.”
Tiara: She is a self proclaimed Chicken Enthusiast. I wonder how many Monopoly dollars that pays?
Mandi: Wore a huge rose on her head and told Ben he could pollinate it… uncomfortable.
Lace: Yes her name is Lace and she wore a lace dress. She also kissed him immediately out of the limo and then tried for a real kiss later and was rejected. ABC has already pinpointed her as the villain of the season… rightfully so.
Caila: Spunky little brunette who broke up with her boyfriend to be on the show and quite literally jumps into Ben’s arms. I like her because she said Lace was “50 shades of Crazzaaayyyy!”
Olivia: News Anchor from Austin, TX. Reminds me of Heidi Klum in a way. She’s definitely one of my favorites, except for the fact that she quit her job as a news anchor to be on The Bachelor… #Mistake.
Emily & Hailey: Twin blondes from Vegas whose collective occupation is “twins.” P.S- They tried out to be Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and had a brief spotlight on the show “Making the team” but didn’t actually make the team… Rumor has it they are in it for the fame so keep your eye out for these two!
And then Becca and Amber arrive and the girls are pissssedddd. (They were on last season with Farmer Chris)
After a few too many glasses of wine Lace manages to slur ” We all know Becca has a one-up on everyone. “Who wants a f*cking Virgin?!” …. Umm every man in America??
Perfect Ben sticks to the rules this season (unlike his 2 male predecessors Chris and Sean) and gives out just ONE first impression rose. Thanks for keeping it simple for us Ben.
And it goes to… Olivia!
Who actually says the words “I’m deserving and I’m really humble.” Someone please give her a dictionary so she can look up the definition of humility.
And going home on week 1 is…
Breanne– The nutritionist who told him Gluten was the devil… News flash Breanne- Guys. Like. Bread.
Tiara- The chicken enthusiast (shocker)
Meagan– The one who brought the pony.
Isabel/Izzy– The one who wore a Onesie and said “because you’re the onesie for me”… I bet she really wishes she wore a dress now.
Lauren R– The Lauren who said she stalked him on social media. Yeah, guys don’t like that.
Jessica– I don’t even know. I thought she was pretty, but she had like 2 seconds of air time and she was one of the 47 other girls wearing a sparkle dress… maybe Ben got confused who was who in the sea of Lauren’s and Sparkle Dresses this season.
Laura: The red head who said her friends call her “Red Velvet.” I was sad to see her go, she seemed like one of the few normal ones in the bunch. But as Laura pointed out, “Some guys just don’t like Red Heads.” Tear Tear.
After the 7 rejected ladytestants depart the mansion, Lace pulls Ben aside to scold him for not making eye contact with her during the rose ceremony. Like is this real life?! Go Home.
And with that, the premier is over and we have to wait a week for the drama to ensue. BOOO.
It’s early but my top 4 are: Lauren B, Olivia, Caila, & Becca
Who are y’all rooting for?
