Warning: Spoilers ahead for “The Bachelor” premiere.
ABC’s 21st season of “The Bachelor” premiered Monday night and just like clockwork, 30 women rolled out of limousines to meet this year’s eligible star, Nick Viall.
And just like the women who came before them, some of the ladies had some weird and wacky ways to introduce themselves to Viall and to America.
These were the 12 most memorable things women did to garner attention on “The Bachelor” premiere.
12. Brittany, a 26-year-old travel nurse, told Nick to “turn around and bend over.”
Though we didn’t see the end of this interaction, it’s quite the first impression to break out gloves and ask a man to bend over. It’s certainly one way to get a first look.
11. Lauren, a 30-year-old law school graduate, revealed her last name is “Hussey.”
This intro gets points for trying to be witty and charming, but loses points for coming across as a little too aggressive and misogynistic.
“You and I were blessed with pretty horrible last names,” Lauren said by way of introducing herself, revealing that her last name is Hussey. “And you’re Viall, so together you and I are a disgusting slut.”
10. Susannah, a 26-year-old account manager, gave him a beard massage.
All of the contestants wanted to hug Nick, but Susannah took it a step further by asking Nick if he wanted a beard massage before rubbing her hands all over his face.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had a beard massage before,” Nick said later. “It wasn’t bad.”
9. Nick received a whole bag of “tokens” from Corinne, a 24-year-old business owner.
When Corinne first stepped out of the limo, Nick seemed very taken with her. She presented him with a token for a hug that he could cash in when he found her later. It was sweet.
But then when he did find her later, Corinne presented him with a huge bag filled with the tiny tokens. “This seems like a lot,” Nick told her. Yeah, yeah it did.
8. Josephine, a 24-year-old registered nurse, made Nick eat a cold raw hot dog with her.
Josephine walked out holding a book, only to open it up and reveal an uncooked hot dog inside.
“You’re a weiner in my book,” she laughed as Nick looked understandably confused.
Then Josephine asked Nick if he wanted to eat the hot dog together, “Lady and the Tramp”-style. Nick obliged, but the hot dog was uncooked and cold.
“I haven’t had an uncooked hot dog since I was six,” Nick joked.
“That goes down hard,” Josephine said, making me and America cringe even more deeply.
7. Taylor, a 23-year-old mental health counselor, told Nick that everyone thinks he’s a “complete piece of sh–.”
Well, this is one way to get a man’s attention. Nick is controversial in the “Bachelor” franchise, but Taylor felt the need to point out to him just how controversial he is.
“My friends were like, ‘No he’s a complete piece of sh–,'” she told a very shocked Nick. “But I don’t believe them or anyone else who thinks that.”
Probably not the sauvest move to remind the man you want to date that some people hate him.
6. Jaime, a 28-year-old chef from New Orleans, told Nick she has “balls.”
This one was kind’ve funny just for the confused look on Nick face.
“You have some balls and so do I,” Jaime said, prompting everyone at home — and possibly Nick — to briefly wonder if she meant she was the show’s first-ever transgender contestant.
But no, she just had a nose piercing with balls.
5. Jasmine G., a 29-year-old NFL cheerleader, brought celebrity jeweller Niall Lane along with her.
Jaime may have thought she had balls, but Jasmine put hers on display by showing up with diamond ring designer Niall Lane who always provides the engagement baubles for the bachelors and bachelorettes at the end of the show.
“I know you’ve done this before a million times, so I just wanted to get some things off your plate now,” Jasmine said. “So, we went over a couple of rings and this one’s my favourite: emerald cut, size 5.”
4. Hailey, a 23-year-old photographer, went for an old-school pick up line.
“Do you know what a girl wearing underwear says?” Hailey asked Nick. When he said no, she answered, “Neither do I.”
Hailey gets points for being forward, but perhaps it was a little more information than America was ready for.
Nick, however, seemed to love this intro. “Can I have another hug?” he asked her.
Get it girl, and by “it,” I mean underwear.
3. Astrid, a 26-year-old plastic surgery office manager, broke out her German to tease Nick.
Astrid put on quite the show by speaking German to Nick. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t understand a word she was saying.
“Have you seen the breasts?” Astrid asked him. “They are real.”
“If only you knew what I said,” she told him. If only.
2. All the women were jealous after 25-year-old Lacey, a digital marketing manager, came in on a camel.
“I hear you like a good hump, and so do I,” Lacey said as she rode in. Though the line was silly, she slid off the camel and into his arms, prompting many of the women to wish they had thought of the camel.
“Super jealous of that, why didn’t I think of the camel?,” one contestant named Raven said to a producer.
1. Alexis, a 23-year-old aspiring dolphin trainer, showed up in a shark costume.
Oh, Alexis. This sweet girl from New Jersey really, really loves dolphins. The only problem? She showed up in a shark costume.
“I dolphin-lately can’t wait to talk to you more inside,” she told Nick. Later on, many of the women were confused if it was a shark or dolphin costume.
“There is a debate whether she is a shark or a dolphin,” Rachel said in a one-on-one interview. “We don’t know and I’m not sure if she does either.”
For the record, it was a shark costume, but Alexis won our hearts with her fiery love for dolphins.
