Fans automatically placed Olivia at the top of their bachelorette boards after she received the coveted first impression rose thanks to her undeniable chemistry with Ben. But after watching the jaw-dropping season promo, it's clear that Olivia won't stay the favorite for long, despite her undeniable chemistry with Ben. 

Not only was Olivia described by the other ladies as "manipulative" and "a liar," the 23-year-old news anchor herself was heard in the promo saying, "I’m not here for friends. Yeah, I’m aggressive -- I’m not going to fade to the back."

"I’m excited for everyone to get to know Olivia more," Ben dished to ET's Katie Krause at the Winter TCA Press Tour on Saturday. "I think she -- her personality and her character -- kind of develops over time and everybody will get to know Olivia a lot better even starting this week."

Another leading lady who caught our eye? That would definitely be Joelle, aka "JoJo," who excited the limo in a unicorn mask. Ben apparently is a huge fan of hers, as she quickly revealed herself to be a genuinely great girl.

"She’s fun [and] charismatic," Ben gushed. "You’ll get to know more about JoJo as a couple episodes come on. Our first night was cut short, but I think because of how charismatic she was and how fun she is, I saw a side that I definitely wanted to know more about."

As for Jubilee? The extended Bachelor promo gave fans a sneak peek at an extremely sensual massage, and it turns out that was one of Ben's favorite moments of the season.

"I love massages," Ben confessed, adding that the move is one of the best ways to his heart. "[With] Jubilee, her story is incredible, and that's somebody else that I’m really excited about the audience getting to know, because she really is an incredible woman."

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. PT/ET on ABC.
