When Jason first stepped out of a limo, he approached Clare with a pillow under his shirt to pay homage to Clare's entrance on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor when she pretended to be pregnant.

Not only did Jason make Clare laugh, but the pair also bonded over their love of the outdoors during the cocktail party. Jason told Clare he'd love to own a cabin in the woods someday and just drink some whiskey with his girl.

"I love your energy!" Clare gushed, as the bachelor was all smiles.

Jason called Clare "the most beautiful girl" he's seen since his mother. He hoped to make a great first impression, and it appears he may have because ABC revealed Jason will be accompanying Clare on the first one-on-one date of The Bachelorette's sixteenth season.
