The Bachelor's Season 22 premiere starring Arie Luyendyk Jr. is still several weeks away, but for fans who can't wait until then, here's a juicy detail about which bachelorette hit it off with Arie the best on Night 1.
[Spoiler Warning: Stop reading now if you don't wish to learn which woman received the coveted First Impression Rose].
After Arie met 29 beautiful bachelorettes and became acquainted with most -- if not all -- of them, the Bachelor had to hand out a First Impression Rose to the lady who made the best first impression on him.
That lucky bachelorette was Chelsea Roy, a 29-year-old administrative assistant for Keller Williams from Portland, ME, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Chelsea is a never-married single mom with a three-year-old son named Sammy.
Chelsea, who also models, graduated from the University of Southern Maine and appears to visit Boston, MA regularly.
Carbone also claims that Chelsea was the first woman to whisk Arie away for some one-on-one time during the initial cocktail party in the first episode of The Bachelor season.
ABC teased of the bachelorette to pull Arie aside first that she's "very assertive and mysterious," adding that she also received a "very romantic kiss" from Arie.
The woman who receives the First Impression Rose each season is allowed to stand confidently during the nerve-wracking and gut-wrenching first Rose Ceremony, knowing she will be advancing to the season's first round of dates.
By the end of Arie's first Rose Ceremony, the bachelorettes will be narrowed down to only 21 ladies.
The rose, however, often puts a big target on the winning bachelorette's back, as other women become jealous and bitter.
Carbone has yet to reveal how far Chelsea makes it through Arie's The Bachelor journey other than she survived the first few episodes. However, according to his Final 4 spoilers, Chelsea was eliminated before the women's round of hometown dates.
The Bachelor's 22nd season will premiere Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
While they have already leaked out, the identities of Arie's Season 22 bachelorettes have not officially been released by ABC yet.
