This episode starts… with a rose ceremony! Yes, remember last week’s Premiere ended with Kimberly coming back in after missing out on one of the 22 roses handed out by Chris, asking to talk to him? Well talk to him she did:
Here is the rest of the official ABC release on this 2nd episode, with my own comments and added sneak peeks!
- Now, just living down the road from the mansion, Chris starts the fun with six gorgeous women stripping down to sexy swimsuits for a rooftop pool party… Chris and his group of six beautiful women are getting to know one another up-close-and-personal at their rooftop pool party, but how will the bachelorettes react to a tractor race in bikinis? After a slow start, there is a one lucky winner, but Chris does a 180 turn and decides to spend time with another woman, who is not the winner, sending home five disappointed ladies. The young woman shares a secret with the Bachelor she hopes won’t ruin her chances as they spend the night at a honky tonk bar. Although Chris is touched by her story, will it convince him that they have potential?
Seems ABC wasnt so eager on keeping us hanging about Kimberly, since she appears on the promo pics for that first group date! Also on the date are Mackenzie, Jade, Tara (who hopefully doesn’t drink and drive), Ashley I and Tandra.
Megan and Chris joyously share a wonderful helicopter ride high over the Grand Canyon and then, during a picnic lunch the conversation turns serious. The young beauty opens up about the story of her father’s tragic passing, but will their romantic kisses lead to enough chemistry for Megan to get a rose?
Eleven unsuspecting ladies have a real surprise in store when their limo rolls up to an abandoned lot. The terrified women are “attacked” by a horde of zombies with only paint ball guns to survive their night with the walking dead until their heroic Bachelor rescues them. However, after surviving the attack one fun-loving, trigger-happy bachelorette exhibits some bizarre antics and jaw-dropping declarations. On the romantic side, things between Chris and his first impression rose recipient Britt are burning up with red hot kisses, but will this chemistry lead him to give her the date rose?
The pressure is undeniable at the cocktail party…
Drunk girl alert, this time from Jordan:
… as the women fight for Chris’ attention before the rose ceremony. A very sexy lady reveals a secret to the women…
… and then proceeds to make sure that her alone time with Chris is hot and heavy, leading to one of the steamiest make out sessions in Bachelor history.
1) Chris Soules gives two reasons why you’ll want to watch:

Some days, I need to remind myself of how beautiful life really is. I see it in my children, my friends, my amazing husband and so much of the world around me. And sometimes, even within our often silly, sometimes disappointing, regularly snarky Bachelor Nation. I see it in this new life, born from a simple reality TV show, to remind us life can bring the best from the oddest places.
Episode 01 – airing January 5th (8:00–11:00 p.m., ET):
- For the First Time in Bachelor History, the Emotionally Charged 19th Season

So this premiere is really a first! First time we get a 3 hours show, a LIVE premiere and a red carpet! Here is a bit of info on what you can expect for the first hour:

Here is your official ABC release on this Premiere episode, aka “the Meet & greet”, with my own comments and added sneak peeks!
Chris Harrison hosts this first-time live premiere event with a studio audience and past fan favorites from The Bachelor and Bachelorette series, as Bachelor Nation goes behind-the-scenes of Chris Soules’ everyday life and an up-close-and-personal look at some of the bachelorettes around the country who will try and capture his heart.
In “Episode 1901,” our Bachelor, who is living right next door to the mansion this season, is filled with anticipation and excitement.
Fifteen stunning bachelorettes from around the country try to make a lasting first impression. One woman gives him a bear hug he won’t soon forget.
A fun-loving country gal shows up in “Daisy Dukes” and cowboy boots.
…maybe a bit TOO fun loving?
A mysterious secret admirer blindfolds Chris before he can see her and slips inside. Will he be able to find her? A woman with an unusual career brings him a medical cooler with a surprise inside.
That would be Reegan:
A six-foot tall striking blonde roars up on a motorcycle wearing a beautiful evening gown – and biker boots.
One of my favourites pre-show, Tandra:
But suddenly, Chris Harrison has a surprise – it’s time to start the party – but with only 15 bachelorettes? The women are equally shocked, but anxious to get the Bachelor’s attention, which some of them do with sexy moves. The first impression rose makes its appearance and it looks like the end of the night, but the evening has actually just gotten started. Harrison lures Chris away because there are 15 more women about to make their entrances.
The original group of bachelorettes can only look on in horror as a seemingly endless parade of beautiful bachelorettes arrive and want to take over the scene, and the Bachelor. The party almost comes to a standstill when one beauty lets the pressure get to her and almost has a meltdown.
Thirty women – an all-time high – compete for the first impression rose. Chris finally offers the coveted rose to one bachelorette, who is surprised to be singled out of this group of outstanding lovely ladies.
A long, stressful night ends with the first rose ceremony of the season. However, there is one woman who is in trouble and might not make it through the night. In the end, a total of 22 women will toast to finding love with Chris. However, in a shocking turn of events, one woman pulls the Bachelor aside for what will be one of the most dramatic twists in Bachelor history.
I hope you are THAT excited:
