The 30 Bachelor contestants kept Nick Viall busy in last night’s episode of the show, and as difficult as his first task was, he had to cut 8 of the women. Rachel Lindsay, the 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas, Texas won the first impression rose.

Here are some other highlights from The Bachelor 2017

Corrine Olympios, got the first kiss, after practically pouncing on Nick. She cut into a conversation that he was having with Vanessa Grimaldi and took the kiss, making most of the other women jealous. Alexis Waters had the most creative “dress.” She was dressed like a shark, but thought that she was wearing a dolphin costume, because she loves dolphins. Alexis kept the costume on throughout the show. She even got in the pool while wearing the outfit. To everyone’s surprise, Alexis got a rose.

A large number of the women wore red during The Bachelor premiere, which brought a different meaning to the “woman in red.” Which one?
