Chris Soules is ready for love — and to do so, he’ll be sorting through 30 gorgeous women. Season 19 (!) of ‘The Bachelor’ premiered on Jan. 5 with a live event, and Chris was in all his glory. That was, until he stormed out of the rose ceremony.
It’s Prince Farming time, y’all. Chris Soules was ready for the ladies to stop out of the limo — corn-y catch phrases and all. Even though he freaks out midway through the arrivals, Chris Harrison slaps him back in shape. Yes, literally. So who made it through night one?
‘The Bachelor’ Premiere — Meet The Ladies
There was only 15 ladies this time around instead of the usual 25 (at first), but we still got some pretty entertaining introductions.
When it came time for the limo door to open, there was some moments worth pointing out. Reegan sells human tissue, so she decided to bring a cooler with a fake human heart in it.
However, it was Tara who stole our attention — she ditched the gown and decided to wear a flannel, cut off shorts and cowboy boots to show her personality. Then changed into a dress and ran back out. Oh and there was Kaitlyn, who gave Chris permission to “plow the f-ck out of my field any day.” It didn’t stop there either. She said a joke about being “tight” inside. Wow.
Keep ‘Em Coming
The tensions increased when three more limos arrived, and it was entertaining to say the least. Brittany arrived in a TINY white cut-off dress and had a sign that said, “soulsmates.” Carly carried a karaoke machine and sang a song she wrote him.
So with 30 women, Chris had quite the decision. I mean, Ashley S. was a little too focused on giving girls roses and picking onions (which are actually pomegranates), but hey — she was happy!
The first impression rose went to Britt, which wasn’t a surprise — she gave him the “free hugs” note, hugged him for a long time, and they almost kissed after the first time talking; you could see the chemistry right away. Oh and then they actually kissed a TON after he gave her the rose. You would have thought they’d been dating for months!
The Rose Ceremony, With A Side Of Whisky
Naturally, like every season, there’s one girl who drinks way too much. This time, it was Tara who got super sloppy and couldn’t even stand during the rose ceremony.
Kaitlyn was the first to receive a rose so Chris must have loved those dirty jokes, followed by Jade and Chris’ other favorites. However, in the awkwardly quiet room, the ladies could only hear Tara — she was literally falling over drunk and mumbling!
Chris must have noticed, as he stormed out midway through and went to Chris Harrison, to explain he was completely overwhelmed. He also wasn’t sure if he could keep Tara around after how drunk she got– but he ultimately (and shockingly) decided to give her another chance.
Here’s who Chris ended up sending home, taking the number from 30 to 25: Reegen, Amanda (the secret admirer), Nicole (who entered wearing a pig nose), Kara, and Kimberly. But, Kimberly ended up walking back in and stealing Chris away… and we have to wait until next week to see what happens. WTF?
To leave you, we put together three of our favorite quotes of the night.
“I wish I was a polygamist right now.” -Farmer Chris
“I wrote on my bucket list, this new idea of sunflower fields. I want to run through sunflower fields.” -Ashley S.
“My best friends are Jameson, Johnny Walker and Jack Daniels. I’m a f–kin’ train wreck.” -Tara
What did you think of the episode, HollywoodLifers? Did the right people go home? Do you think Tara should have gone? Let us know.
