By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/07/2018
The Bachelor's Season 23 premiere starring Colton Underwood 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 Colton 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 Colton met 30 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 or most memorable impression on him.
That lucky bachelorette was Hannah Godwin, a 23-year-old content creator and model from Birmingham, AL, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
ABC revealed Hannah is a "sweet Southern belle" who definitely isn't camera shy. Not only does she model for her booming social media business, but she also serves as the photographer for it.
Hannah, who has over 65,000 followers on Instagram, also enjoys being a foodie and glamping.
According to Carbone, Hannah works for Soca Clothing and graduated from the University of Montevallo in 2017 with a Business Marketing degree. She models for Red Dress Boutique and has also starred in multiple music videos.
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison all but confirmed Hannah earned Colton's first rose, as he said during a Facebook Live streaming event on Thursday the pair had an "immediate spark" and Hannah made "a big first impression on Night 1."
As for why Hannah allegedly received the coveted First Impression Rose, ABC disclosed, "He ends up giving it to the lady who helped him feel the most comfortable in this very new situation."
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.

"Hannah is for sure going to be a name Bachelor Nation will be talking about for a while going forward, you can guarantee that," Carbone teased.
By the end of Colton's first Rose Ceremony, the bachelorettes will be narrowed down to only 23 ladies.
The rose, however, often puts a big target on the winning bachelorette's back, as other women become jealous and bitter. Some The Bachelor fans may therefore view the First Impression Rose as the kiss of death.
After all, in recent The Bachelor history, none of the 10 women who received the first rose went on to win the competition and get engaged to the show's star. Most of them didn't even make the Final 4.
The First Impression Rose, however, is very significant for The Bachelorette series, as the last four female stars chose the men who had received that special rose on Night 1.
