For Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, finding love a second time around is proving to be an uphill battle.
On Monday's premiere of the ABC hit, Hebert, 27, had to wade through a handful of oddball suitors before making it to her first rose ceremony.
"My biggest fear is falling in love with somebody and them not reciprocating that," Hebert told host Chris Harrison before meeting the men. "Twenty five guys are going to show up but I'm not guaranteed there going to stick around."
If you ask Us, dental student Hebert may not want all the guys to stick around. As the above clip shows, the Bachelorette encountered a few guys that made for good TV, but not necessarily a love connection.
Missouri entrepreneur Jeff, 35, made an impression on Hebert right away, stepping out of the limo to greet her in a black Zorro-style mask. "I wanted to take my face out of the game and have you learn a little bit about what's inside," he told a weirded-out Hebert before getting razzed by the other guys.
Office supply salesman Matt, 28, was smart to seek solo time with Hebert — but he wasn't entirely alone in his pursuit.
"I think you and my mom would really get along," he told Hebert, innocently enough. Later, the pair gave Matt's mom a call, and she had a few words of caution for her son's potential mate. "When the two of you decide that you're going to forgo your separate rooms and join in the fantasy suite [during final Bachelorette rounds], just remember two things: Your moms are watching, and always use your protection!"
While Hebert seemed smitten with Jeff and Matt enough to offer them roses and a chance to stick around, liquor distributor Tim wasn't as lucky.
Minutes after meeting Hebert, the 35-year-old got fall-down drunk and turned her off with his slurred speech during their precious one-on-one time. "I had a few cocktails," Tim admits. "Feeling bad" for Tim, Hebert enlists a handful of the guys to carry him out of the Bachelorette mansion — after he passes out cold — and sends him on his way.
In the end, Hebert offered roses to 18 of the 25 guys, including first impression rose recipient Ryan. Which guy are you rooting for this season? Tell Us in the comments section!
