Guard any and all prized rose gardens, because boutonniere season, er, Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette is upon us. On Thursday, May 17, ABC shared a pile of photos from Becca’s first night as Bachelorette, and it looks like this season starts things off on a thrilling note. Unlike, say, the finale of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor, there seem to be a lot of smiles and smooches and shenanigans on Becca’s season premiere. The good kind of shenanigans, not surprise-you-with-a-breakup-on-national-TV shenanigans.
Of course, there’s probably some drama on the first night; it wouldn’t be a limo arrival episode of The Bachelorette without contestants arguing about “Can I steal you away for a second?” etiquette or someone making it pretty clear that they’re here for the get-on-reality-TV reasons. But hey, as long as there's cake and chicken suits, all is well.
