After the somewhat disappointing conclusion to the asinine rollercoaster that was Nick Viall’s season, Bachelor fans have been eagerly awaiting the premiere of Rachel Lindsey’s journey to find her true love. Finally, last night the historic season began and we were introduced to a slew of potential suitors for Rachel—who is undoubtedly my favorite Bachelorette ever.
One after another, a cast of incomprehensibly handsome men and a few loose cannons (to put it lightly) poured out of the limousines and let’s just say, Rachel is going to have her hands full.
Rachel kicked off her season by seeking advice from some of her favorite ladies from Nick’s season.
This included runner-up Raven and the infamous Corinne as well as a handful of other memorable contestants.
Then, the limos started rolling in and Rachel met her potential suitors—who did their best to make a memorable first impression.
Some were cute, while others were extremely cringe-worthy.
One contestant had Rachel close her eyes and tickled her…he has been officially dubbed the “Tickle Monster.”
I’ve never been more uncomfortable. His job title literally says: Tickle Monster. NOPE.
And another contestant showed up with a creepy ass doll.
Of course, the producers of the show ran with this and even gave the doll his own persona with interviews. WHY!?
He even has his own Twitter account already:
But, perhaps the most obnoxious suitor of the night was the “Whaboom” guy.
I cannot even with this guy. “Whaboom” is supposedly his catchphrase and every time he screams it, he looks like he’s having a damn seizure.
However, there were also several potential husbands I was a fan of including Bryan—who not only stole the first kiss, but received the first impression rose.
A gorgeous Spanish-speaking Colombian…sign me up. Let’s just hope he’s not too good to be true.
Finally, it was time for the first rose ceremony and Rachel *cough* the producers *cough* chose to keep the Whaboom guy AND the tickle monster.
But at least the creepy ass doll isn’t sticking around.
