Here We Go
First up was Luke, who told Brown that she was the “only one” that he wanted to be the next Bachelorette.
“You are absolutely stunning,” he said. “And now that I’m here, actually holding your hands in real life, seriously, this is just blowing my mind.”
Next was Dustin, who came out holding a glass of champagne.
“I’m so nervous right now, but I wanted to do a toast,” he said. “Cheers to the start of a wonderful beginning, an amazing journey and for us to get to know each other. And also hopefully us choosing each other every single day.”
Then came Cam, who took the stage to spit a few bars.
“Take my hand and let’s go for a ride — this is the only time an Aggie is going to say, ‘Roll Tide!’ ” he rapped.
Next was Connor, who brought out a bedazzled step stool as their “first step” to seeing “eye-to-eye.”
“For me, in starting our relationship, it’s really important that we’re on the same level,” he said.
Last but not least came a second Luke that Brown officially coined Luke S., using his last name initial.
“I know you’re from Alabama and I don’t go down south often — but for you, I’d go down anytime,” he quipped.
Following each of the introductions, host Chris Harrison revealed that for the first time ever, the Bachelor finale would be hosting a live Bachelorette rose ceremony.
“Thank y’all so much for coming out here tonight. Y’all are so brave and I can’t wait to see you all again. This is one of the hardest decisions I’ve made this season, but you all were great,” Brown joked.
Mr. Hannah Brown?
Ultimately, Cam’s rapping skills secured him the coveted flower. “How you pumped up the jams, that was awesome,” Brown gushed before fastening it to his suit.
That’s all for now, Bachelor Nation! We’ll be back when the full season kicks off May 13 on ABC.
