Who will get the first impression rose? Who will get wasted on night one? And who gets that first kiss? Those answers… and many more will be answered on tonight’s premiere of ‘The Bachelorette.’
Season 12 of The Bachelorette officially kicked off on May 23 and started with JoJo Fletcher getting some advice from the ladies who know it best. Kaitlyn Bristowe, Desiree Hartsock and Ali Fedotowsky all sat down with JoJo before she met her men.

Here’s what we got from the ladies’ advice: Don’t hold back; if you want to kiss them, do it… and maybe wait to sleep with them. Kaitlyn may or may not regret sleeping with Nick. But anyway, let’s get to the men!
We met some of the men before they met JoJo: firefighter Grant; NFL stud Jordan; Marine and twin, Alex; superfan James (yup, that’s his job); and pastor turned erectile dysfunction specialist Evan. Also want to shout out to Luke, a country boy and 9-year war veteran, who was absolutely charming.
Jordan was the first out of the limo and she was already into him. (I mean, duh!) Robby brought a bottle of wine — talk about fitting for The Bachelorette; oh they also drank out of the bottle. Just like her mom! Will (fake) dropped all his notecards getting out of the limo, before (fake) reading them. It was actually pretty cute!
Daniel thought he was Damn, Daniel, saying “damn JoJo” when he got out. Awkward alert. I kind of liked James Taylor, who got of the limo singing an original song and playing a guitar! And.. then there’s Jonathan, in a kilt — half Chinese and half Scottish. He pointed out that he was Scottish below the waste, and was going commando. Yikes!
However, they are all very attractive — and even the men notice. Wells actually brought out All-4-One to sing “I Swear.” Who does he know to get that?! Of course, one of the best entrances was my man Luke’s — on a unicorn.
Here’s what went down in the house: Chad was real cute… until he speaks. He came off really rude and pretty much was ripping down every single guy. But he told the camera he could have her if he wanted. It was Jordan who won her over right away, and regardless of Will’s awkward first kiss, it was Jordan and his great butt that got the real first one.
Per usual there was too much drinking, namely by Daniel and Vinny, who crashed her interview, but there were still a few decent men like Luke who brought her cowboy boots and totally impressed her. However, it was Jordan who received the first impression rose!
So, when it came time for the rose ceremony, JoJo was interrupted by season 14 Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and no, he wasn’t coming to join the group; he’s a family friend so was coming to give her advice (couldn’t do that before she left, bro?). So, good move by ABC to get people thinking!
Anyway, here’s the 20 men moving on:
So, who are the front runners in your book?
