Zoom Call Summary: The episode flew by this week! Started with some contestant bios. In those we got to see Clayton, who is pretty much confirmed to be the next Bachelor. Tayshia and Kaitlyn are back to host!
Before the limo entrances, Tayshia and Kaitlyn went into a few of the guys rooms to check and help them with their outfits. One contestant's room they went into was Ryan, an environmental consultant. They found in Ryan's room extensive notes on how to be on the Bachelorette. Like writing every definition from the textbook long. I'll save you the drama, Michelle finds out and she sends Ryan home because once she sees a red flag, she is saying goodbye.
For the others, here were some of the best entrances from night one:
Clayton brought a ruler and had Michelle slap his ass
Romeo spoke French and told Michelle she hopefully will be his Juliet
Casey held Michelle's hands and then started the slap game
Peter, who probably makes mediocre pizza, threw a dough like 30 yards into the bushes
Leroy had a camera and caught their first moment
Daniel came in on a toy firetruck and then PJ came in on an actual firetruck, making PJ the alpha
There was one guy who really stood out to Michelle, and I would say not for the best reasons. Joe came in and Michelle was thrown off because she has seen him before. Then it clicked for Michelle that in early 2020, she slid into his DMs. And the guy had the audacity to not respond and then come on her season of the Bachelorette. The 👏 audacity 👏. They end up talking during the night and for some reason, he gets to stay.
The first impression rose ended up going to Nayte. I will be honest, didn't really catch what he did that got him that first impression rose. They did seem to hit it off, so maybe she was seeing something that the viewer at home didn't see. Also, I am pretty sure that there were no kisses on night one, which was a nice change of pace from the kissing booth night ones have turned into.
Here are all of the contestants that got a rose:
Nayte (First impression rose)
There was a really good sneak peak into the season. The big thing to note is that Michelle is seen at the proposal site, which is a breath of fresh air because we did not see that with either Matt or Katie in the sneak peaks.
The Bracket is back! I learned from the viewers, we can only commit to picking people once and then watching throughout the season. Picking week by week was too much to ask. We are going back to Bach Bracket for our first impression league, meaning you pick who you think will get to next week, hometowns, etc. before next Tuesday's episode.
