The Bachelorette: The Best Bachelorette Premiere Ever – Here's The Rankings

Who will win her heart?
The premiere of this season’s The Bachelorette was hands down the best premiere of the series to date.
There was no real cattiness, no truly despicable contestants, and our lovely lady was even more charming, more personable, and more beautiful than ever.
For those of you who remember my rankings for Brad’s season you know that I actually proclaimed Emily the winner after the very first episode.
I saw something incredibly special with her that America seems to agree with. She’s a down-to-earth, poised, sophisticated, and honest woman.
Everything she says seems genuine, and I love how even though she’s the most beautiful woman to ever be on the Bachelor or Bachelorette, she doesn’t hog the cameras.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
She makes this experience a personal one, not something that she can claim fame for.
Emily is there for the right reasons, and the way she handled each man with grace, kindness, and openness had me in awe that such a personality exists on reality television.
Emily is the real deal, and I truly hope this time she finds happiness and love at the end of her journey. She deserves it.
Moving on to the premiere, there were quite a number of contestants, and I got a little lost as far as pinning names to faces. I think as far as whom to send home, Emily picked the right people.
She saw right away that David was there to pull a Wes. He’s probably a decent dude in real life, but I have to reckon he was there just to promote his music. Emily cut the chord with him as soon as she realized there was no chemistry.
Emily now already has a leg up on Ashley and Jillian in this regard. Ugh, the horror of those seasons.
The only person I was genuinely surprised to see stick around is Travis. His ostrich egg had to be the stupidest, most disgusting prop to ever grace The Bachelorette show.
The egg looked like it was about to hatch and explode any minute. It was shiny, and seemed like something was about to pop out. I was expecting the dragons from Game of Thrones to hatch and start breathing fire all over the mansion.
Travis is a bit too quirky, too insecure, and too much of an oddball to stick around for very long.
I think Emily kept him around because he did make an effort to go out of his way to get her attention, and he is probably there for the right reasons despite his gross-looking egg.
