The Bachelor is finally back on our screens, with hunky Richie Strahan as our leading man. Last night, the season premiered with a bang as we saw all kinds of weird and wonderful from the 22 ladies who will be competing for his heart.

Here, we recap the 7 strangest things that happened on last night’s show – because let’s be real, some weird stuff went down.

1. Sasha eating her rose

At this point it was probably 5 o’clock in the morning, so we’ll forgive her for being peckish.


2. Eliza singing

3.  This clip that played before the ad break and then got no explanation

4. Richie straight up asking Kiera ‘What turns you on?’

Mr cool bananas definitely lost his cool.

(Richie after realising what he’d just just asked a woman 30 seconds into meeting her)

5. Janey

Just Janey. Full stop. This girl is a character and a half.

She’s a 27-year-old children’s entertainer who is ‘passionate about herself’, as well ‘rainbows, cupcakes, glitter’ etc.

Also, did anyone else catch this?

6. The girl that likes bacon

This wasn’t so much weird as it was wonderful. Nina also has a bacon tattoo and gave Richie bacon roses. Vegans vying for Richie eat your heart out.

7. Vintaea dropping some of the best one-liners of the season already, then leaving. 

‘My earrings are so f**king heavy. And my tits are so f**king, like, up to my neck.’

‘I’m going OK … at least the dress covers my *****’

‘Oh, they’re heavy as f**k, these earrings. Don’t even get me STARTED on these earrings’
