'The Bachelorette' Premiere: The Most Memorable Limo Exits, Ranked From Totally Cringeworthy to Too Cute!
By Jennifer Drysdale
The Bachelorette is officially here -- and so are Rachel Lindsay's 31 suitors!
The 32-year-old attorney, who made it to the final three on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, was announced prematurely as the Bachelorette in the hope that the show's producers would find the best possible cast... and they certainly delivered.
Lindsay has already revealed that she's engaged, but before we eventually find out who wins her rose in the finale, we first have to look at who made it out of the limo on night
See the night's most memorable limo exits, ranked from totally cringeworthy to too cute, below:
"This is Adam Jr. He's super excited to be here tonight," Adam creepily said to Rachel as he exited the limo with a four-foot-tall doll. "You get two for the price of one."
If Lindsay's face didn't make it clear, her words sure did. "I like Adam," she said after he walked away, "not Adam Jr."
Dolphin Shark Part 2: The Rise of the Penguin
If Lindsay doesn't keep Matt around, we might know someone else who's interested. The 32-year-old construction sales rep pulled an Alexis Waters by showing up in full costume -- though this time, it was a penguin.
"I know you have a thing for penguins. Once penguins find their soulmates, they tend to mate for life, and I'm hoping that's me," he said so sweetly that we almost forgot he was wearing a penguin costume.
"I wanted to make sure you had at least one good laugh tonight," Jonathan said as he actually tickled Lindsay's ribcage. If there was ever a case of too much, too soon, this is it.
We have to admit, Lucas wasn't actually that bad, and his megaphone was actually kind of adorable -- until he got out of the limo. "It's all about Whaboom. If you want a glimpse of it, I can give it to you now," the 30-year-old graciously offered before performing a violent expression of Whaboom.
Whatever Whaboom is, we wish he would've taken it down about 10 notches.
"Hi, I'm Alex. I'm actually with the cleanup crew," the 28-year-old information systems supervisor told Lindsay as he danced up to her with a vacuum. The stunt got a few giggles from the Bachelorette... and not much else.
"I hear there's an emergency!" emergency medical technician Grant yelled as he popped out of an ambulance. "There's a beautiful woman who is being bored to death!" OK. He's useful.
Blast From the Past
"I like to go through old photos from when I was a kid," Fred told Lindsay as he flipped through an old yearbook, showing off his third-grade photo -- and her eighth-grade one a few pages back!
"It's good seeing you again!" Lindsay smiled before revealing that she didn't exactly have fond memories of their childhood together. "I knew exactly who he was when he came out of the limo. He was a very bad kid."
Brady crushed a block of ice with a sledgehammer before even introducing himself to the Bachelorette. "I just had to break the ice," he confessed to Lindsay's giggles.
"That was great!" she raved.
Did I Do That?
Sales manager Will, 28, made quite the impression with his hilarious Urkel impression. "Did I do that?" he croaked after slipping on the wet driveway and retreating back into the limo, before coming out looking sharp and ready to sweep Lindsay off her feet.
Blake E.'s first introduction on After the Final Rose was anything but exciting, but he made up for it in spades in round two.
"I feel like my last entrance was less memorable, so I wanted to drum up something new for you," Blake told Lindsay as he arrived with a marching band down the driveway.
It's no surprise that singer-songwriter Lee exited the limo with a sweet serenade for the Bachelorette. "I know I ain't Bieber, but I am a believer tonight," he crooned before handing Rachel a beautiful white rose.
Prosecuting attorney Josiah definitely knows how to speak Lindsay's language! "I'm convinced by the end of our experience together that you will have no reasonable doubt that I am the man for you," he declared before making his way into the mansion. "See you later, litigator."
"Have you ever dated a Colombian guy before? Girl, you in trouble, but it's all good trouble," Bryan told Lindsay in an introduction that had her saying she "looks forward to getting in trouble."
The Bachelorette returns to its original time, Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, next week on ABC.
