Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher began her journey for love on Monday.
The Half Scotsman's Introduction
While JoJo was meeting all the men for the first time, one suitor stepped out of the limo wearing a kilt and told her he was half Chinese, half Scottish, but thankfully, “Scottish below the waist.” JoJo winced and responded, "What does that mean?"
Daniel, The Canadian
He was just cringeworthy-full stop. From starting with a misplaced "Damn, Daniel" joke and accusing JoJo of being out of the loop, to stripping and poking people in the belly button, he definitely is one of the stranger men in the house. Oh, and his occupation is "Canadian," too.
Cootie Catcher Kiss
This was painfully awkward to watch. Will attempted to seduce JoJo with a 4th grade-type fortune teller and forced her into an awkward peck that JoJo prefaced with, "Are you ready?"
Santa came early this year, and brought a gift for the Bachelorette, as well. Although he scored a perfect 10 on the creepiness scale, he still managed to get a rose from JoJo.
JoJo's Interview Interruptions
While JoJo was filming her one-on-one interview, not one but two clearly intoxicated contestants interrupted filming, and didn't realize she was mid-interview.
Jake Pavelka returns
A "Bachelorette" episode wouldn't be good without an old flame or old contestant busting in. And that's exactly what happened on Season 12's premiere -- former "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka came in during the rose ceremony, giving the other men anxiety. In the end, he just wanted to give JoJo some good advice, but their entire interaction was extremely awkward and forced.
Frontrunner Gets Blasted
Aaron Rodgers' brother, Jordan, is a clear frontrunner for JoJo, but a teaser for the upcoming season reveals that the other contestants aren't too happy with the retired NFL player. After the premiere, a woman claiming to be Rodgers' ex-girlfriend accused him of cheating on Instagram. Jordan should be grateful the show isn't filmed live.
