ICYMI, the historical The Bachelorette Australia 2021 kicked off last night and we’re already thirsty for more of Brooke Blurton‘s love story!
As is customary for a new Bachie season, fans were out in full force with their live-tweeting. And let us tell you — they did not hold back one bit!
As far as chemistry goes, the mansion was getting HOT. There were sparks between Brooke and Konrad With A K (after they built a loveseat together), while Jamie-Lee‘s surprise arrival left our Bachie shook.
It’s too early to put our money on who Brooke will choose at the end, however, there are enough qUiRkY characters to know who she won’t end up with!
Strap in while we revisit The Bachelorette Australia‘s messy premiere with all the BEST tweets.
We Stan The Representation
From a Welcome to Country to women (!!) meeting Brooke on the red carpet, representation was rife from the get-go.
From having to ‘out herself’ on @TheBachelorAU to now having her own series, a Welcome to Country, and the first queer pash on the show. Already love @BacheloretteAU #BacheloretteAU @BrookeBlurton https://t.co/IvksptYYeC— Vyshnavee Wijekumar (@vylentfemme) October 20, 2021
Brooke and Jamie-Lee shared the first queer pash of the season! As expected, people lost their absolute sh*t over the groundbreaking moment.
What Did Fans Think Of The Contestants?
The ladies vying for Brooke’s heart already have us questioning why there are even men in the running in the first place! They took charge, leaving the dudes in the dust wondering WTF was going on.
when you put men and women side by side you see how useless men are 😭😭— sam (@ssameeyra) October 20, 2021
early pick for the winner: literally any of the women and none of the men #BacheloretteAU— Jenna Guillaume (@JennaGuillaume) October 20, 2021
Even Osher Günsberg thought the ladies were superior!
Watching this first night of filming, watching how much intense emotion the women brought on first meetings – all I could think was that the fellas need to step up their game… #BacheloretteAU— Osher Günsberg (@oshergunsberg) October 20, 2021
Darvid is KING
If there is one man we have high hopes for this season, it’s Darvid. The ‘Persian Prince’ is hot, gentle, and didn’t act like a douchebag, which makes him the best of the bunch. He is living proof that the bar of expectations really is on the floor.
AW MY KING DARVID! PERSIAN PRINCE! People with such gentle personalities don’t usually get to thrive in this environment I have to stan!!! #BacheloretteAu— Eliza Barr (@ElizaJBarr) October 20, 2021
hey darvid, i’m single and i have a lawn you can mow #BacheloretteAU— taryn ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง (@thereafter) October 20, 2021
The Love Seat Scandal
It wouldn’t be The Bachelorette without a scandal kicking off on night one, so may we introduce to you: #LoveSeatGate.
Fans were left reeling after Jess made a beeline for the seat Konrad With A K built. Fully aware of what she was doing, she nestled in on it for a chat with Brooke before the carpenter got a chance!
10 minutes ago I was saying the chair looked crap. Now I would burn the mansion down over it. GET OFF THE LOVESEAT! #BacheloretteAU— Jen (@jenbrec) October 20, 2021
this is konrad’s villain origin story #BacheloretteAU— kasey (@_kasenation) October 20, 2021
Nobody Likes Beau
“Edgy” Instagram photographer Beau Tauwhara made an impression for all the wrong reasons. For starters, he was a grown man saying “BB” and “cute AF”… unironically.
Cried like 3 times watching #BacheloretteAU but now Beau is making me cry for different reasons— Tahlia Pritchard (@Tahls) October 20, 2021
“Picking up what I put down”— Osher Günsberg (@oshergunsberg) October 20, 2021
Beau is missing so many signs he’s trying to catch a train at a bus station. #BacheloretteAU
Oh, and then he made out like “his team” (the dudes) “won”, because Darvid received the First Impression Rose.
Beau? More like, No.
not beau taking this as his ‘team’ winning ew #BacheloretteAU— Jenna Guillaume (@JennaGuillaume) October 20, 2021
Beau out here thinking it’s called The Bachelorette: Guys vs Girls 🥴🤮 #BacheloretteAU— victoria🌙☕️ (@JustMeVictoria_) October 20, 2021
Who Didn’t Receive A Rose?
At the end of the episode, we said so long to a guy in a pink suit.
We think his name was Johann. It was a J name, so bullet dodged nonetheless.
Bring on the intense music for the rose ceremony 🎶🌹#BacheloretteAU— Ximena Iglesias (@XimenaIglesias) October 20, 2021
First rose ceremony is always very “who is that? Were they here the whole time?” #BacheloretteAU— Sass🧣 (@supergirl_sass) October 20, 2021
