AceShowbiz - "The Bachelor" season 24 premiered on Monday, January 6 on ABC. The new season of the dating show featured Peter Weber's journey in finding his true love among the 30 women, who were vying for the pilot's love.
The first women that Peter met was Alayah from Texas. She touched Peter's heart as she also brought along with her a letter from her grandma for Peter. The next woman came out was Sydney from Alabama. She shaded "The Bachelorette" alum Hannah Brown who eliminated Peter in her season of the show, saying that not everyone from Alabama would make the mistake of letting him go.
Hannah Anne from Tennessee later made an entrance. She also brought Hannah Brown into their conversation as she asked Peter if he had love in his heart for another Hannah. Following her was Sarah, who was also from Tennessee.
This season had several flight attendants participating but one that made a remarkable entrance might be Eunice, who came in wearing angel's wings. Another woman, meanwhile, arrived with a giant paper airplane to impress Peter. There was also Lexi who came in a vintage car.
It appeared like the ladies liked to joke about Peter and Hannah B.'s past relationship as someone brought in condoms and most of them alluded to the four times he had sex with Hannah in the windmill.
Meanwhile, one contestant named Kelly revealed that she met Peter randomly a month a go in a hotel lobby when she was there for a wedding. She went on saying that she thought it was a sign for her to join "The Bachelor". Considering that Peter remembered their encounter vividly, other contestants saw Kelley as a threat.
Later, Hannah Brown appeared out of no where. However, the ladies could breathe a sigh of relief because she wasn't there to compete. Looking stunning in a red gown with keyhole cutout, Hannah came to wish Peter a good luck in his journey. "When I heard you were going to be the Bachelor, I had mixed emotions," she told him before adding, "You're going to be great. I'm really happy for you."
Later, it was time for him to give the First Impression Rose to the women. Some of them were determined to get the rose as Peter could be seen making out with several of them. However, some were not comfortable to make out with a guy before they've been on a date.
Hannah Anne appeared to be a villain of this season as she interrupted others' session with Peter despite being given time alone with him before. However, Hannah Anne wasn't the only one being rude that night. Despite all that, Peter decided to give Hannah Anne his first rose, making other women furious.
In the Rose Ceremony, in addition to Hannah Anne, Peter gave the roses to Victoria P., Madison, Kelley, Lexi, Savannah, Lauren, Tammy, Alayah, Jasmine, Sydney, Natasha, Mykenna, Deandra and Sarah. Also being presented with roses were Alexa, Kelsey, Payton, Kiarra, Courtney, Shiann, and Victoria F. That means Peter cuts Avonlea, Eunice, Jade, Jenna, Katrina, Kylie, Maurissa and Megan.
Following that was their first group date, featuring Hannah Ann, Kelley, Deandra, Tammy, Courtney, Shiann, Victoria P., Jasmine, and Victoria F. They went to an airfield and there are two female pilots there, one who was the first female Blue Angel pilot and the other who flies combat planes for the Marines.
After Victoria P. threw up in the bathroom, they started the real competition as the women had to do a ridiculous obstacle course in order to get some solo time with Peter. Kelley came out as the winner and she was granted a date at the hotel where Kelley and Peter met before filming started, which raised suspicion among the others.
As for the one-on-one date, Peter enjoyed it with Madison. He decided to take Madison to his parents' vow renewal. It was such an emotional date since Peter's dad cried while looking at his wife walked down the aisle with their other son, Jack.
"The Bachelor" airs Mondays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on ABC.
