Ed, 36
Health Care Salesman, Miami, FL
After dating around and being single for the last year, Ed says he's finally in a place mentally and professionally to make finding his soulmate a priority. Ed is looking to find a woman who has natural beauty without looking overly fake. He has a weakness for women who can joke around and be playful, and would love to find someone to enjoy one of his many aquatic hobbies with, like kayaking or paddle boarding. Ed hopes that this experience will produce the meaningful and loving relationship that he hasn't quite yet experienced. He is serious about getting married and is hoping to return home with Clare by his side, never to be single again.
- Ed's biggest turn on is a woman with beautiful eyes.
- Ed loves all-inclusive resorts.
- Ed is bad at multitasking and planning ahead.

Sharleen Joynt on Episode 1 of The Bachelorette

As many of you might know, I began a podcast about two months ago, where my husband and I discuss relationships and answer dating questions. It has been very interesting to observe which questions have become true “FAQs,” frequently-asked enough to warrant their own tangents (or even episodes!). So far, those FAQs have been regarding finances, jealousy and “knowing.” A lot of people want to know how you know, if there is such a thing as “just knowing.”

Thus, it was with some amusement that I found myself watching Clare declare that she would “know” her husband the second she met him, that she “knew” Dale was her husband having just met him, after a minute-or-so long conversation (and I’m being generous).

Now, not to rain on any soulmate or love-at-first-sight parades, but I just don’t believe in it. I have as good a relationship as I ever could have dreamed (certainly, I doubted if I could be completely 100% content with any partner), but I cannot claim to have “just known” the second I met Andy. Andy is a tad more romantic, claiming he “just knew” within five minutes of speaking to me, but I tend to chalk that up to his age and experience. And, hey, it makes a nice story.

In Clare’s case, one can’t help but make the connection between her words and the fact that hers was the first season in history where filming was delayed after her cast had been announced. In other words, she had all the time in the world to stalk her men’s online presences. (And I’m not judging here—who in their right mind wouldn’t??) Certainly, it was enough time for Blake Moynes to break the rules and slide into her DMs. (Such a disobedient Canadian!)

This is a crucial detail. We live in a time where our social media presence has the distinct ability to turn one on or off; a face-to-face first impression can easily be stolen by an Instagram profile. And I’m not saying Clare didn’t go into her experience with an open mind—as she surely did—but I do think this is worth mentioning.

Do I still think it’s a bit extreme to know Clare felt this strongly about Dale despite (allegedly) never having spoken to him? Sure.

But again, I fall squarely in the skeptic column. I’m the type to wonder: If the concept of “soulmates” and “The One” and “fate” weren’t so romanticized in our culture, would any of us even care so much? What does it matter if you met cute or swiped right, if it took you five minutes or five years to “know?” If the end result is still a stable, happy partnership that fulfills you, I don’t think the choose-your-own-adventure taken to get you there matters all that much.

Шарлин, будучи скептиком, ей этого не понять, что бывают люди другого типа, как я, например, для меня не составляет труда тут же решить, что кто то мой человек! Хотя, ходят слухи, что Дэйл понравился Клер еще по инсте, а она уже нравилась ему!

But don’t get me wrong: I LOVE this about Clare.
Her conviction in such things—especially knowing how unbelievable it might sound to us skeptical types—is precisely what makes her great to watch.

This isn’t someone who hedges her bets, who wonders if the grass is greener. Her gut is her gospel.
Upon meeting Dale, most women—even the more romantic types—would get an extra flutter in their heart, would maybe make some comment about how she especially liked him. But few would have the guts to declare the man her future husband. Even Chris Harrison shared that such a declaration was a franchise first. (More on that in a bit.) It’s such a level of audacity that I almost—almost!—feel inspired to believe her. The analyst in me cannot imagine one saying such words many times before realizing they would lose their gravity. Besides, it is far more interesting (not to mention, entertaining) to watch someone who chooses to believe than it is to watch someone who is incredulous and reticent (*raises hand*).

What I do appreciate is the refreshing change Clare’s approach is to the usual rigamarole—the lead perpetually “unsure,” their pretend hemming and hawing, how they only “just realized” who they were picking the night before a proposal. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Speaking of “knowing,” on this show, the lead does know their pick relatively early on. (Can you imagine how much easier it would be to “just know” if you were choosing from a pool of 30 or so candidates?!) Certainly, they have their favourite two or three men or women based on Night One alone. It has become increasingly patronizing to be told otherwise, so with my patience wearing pretty thin in that regard, Clare’s declaration that Dale was IT for her was welcome.

Sure, it may be a massive pendulum swing in the opposite direction, but we know by now The Bachelor and its spinoffs do nothing halfway.

What is worth observing is the fact that we were shown Clare saying this. Consider the great lengths to which production typically goes to level the playing field and add confusion (versus clarity) as to who ends up down on one knee.

I’ll take Chris Harrison’s word for it that no one has ever said these exact words, but other leads have surely revealed who they think they’ll marry, whether on Night One or halfway through their “journey.” But instead of being buoyed in their excitement and pursuit of their favourite, just the opposite would seem to happen: Colton has famously revealed that he felt he had to downplay his interest in Cassie in order to even get time with her; after his season, Peter revealed he was told by production Kelley wasn’t that into him. Not only is a lead’s favouritism not shown to us, but production appears to use every tool at their disposal to throw everyone—even the lead—off the scent.

With that in mind, isn’t it a bit suspect that we heard Clare say she’d just met her husband? And further, that Chris Harrison trotted over to ask her to repeat herself? And further still, that it was a moment that evaded the editing room floor and made it into the episode?

I already had my suspicions about this season and I feel no less suspicious having seen this premiere. It’s no secret this season is fraught with rumours that Clare was “difficult” to work with (which, after living with her for six weeks during Juan Pablo’s season, I highly doubt—Clare may be emotional but she’s not a diva), that she runs off into the sunset with one man, that another Bachelorette is flown in to replace her. (I’m very anti-spoilers but you’d have to be living under a rock to not know about these rumours!) With the few puzzle pieces we have so far, one must wonder who most benefits from a scenario in which Clare doesn’t remain the lead of her own season. You could argue the heart wants what it wants and Clare just had the come-to-Jesus moment of fairytales. You could also argue an entire season’s worth of drama comes perfectly packaged if she were to leave. Notably, they’re not mutually exclusive arguments.

I’ll keep with my tradition of singling out my Night One standouts.
For the most part, Clare’s crop of men are shockingly good-looking (and you know I never say this)!

and Brandon

both stood out to me in terms of looks—supported by the fact that they were blissfully drama-free.

Mike, 38
Digital Media Adviser, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Mike is a total Canadian stereotype in that he is quite possibly the nicest person you'll ever meet. He loves spending quality time with friends and says being close with his family is a top priority. He enjoys activities like traveling the world, downhill skiing and going to see his favorite hockey team, the Calgary Flames. After his last relationship, Mike put up serious walls when it came to allowing himself to being vulnerable, but now he's back and better than ever! He is looking to find the right girl to ultimately marry and have children with. Mike wants a woman whose values align with his, as well as someone who is extremely honest and trustworthy. Being a good communicator is very important, and the biggest requirement of all -- his mom and his sister must love her. Mike is ready to find his forever and he can't wait for his chance to sweep Clare off her feet.
- At the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Mike captured a video with Hoda Kotb at the women's gold medal ice hockey game and went viral!
- Mike is a proud, lifelong member of the Shania Twain fan club.
- Mike refuses to acknowledge that season 8 of "Game of Thrones" ever aired.
- If Mike could live in any time period, he would live during the Jurassic years so he could roam through life with the dinosaurs.

It’ll come as no surprise that the two Canadian men stood out to me; I loved that Mike brought flat sandals for Clare (brilliant!)

Eazy, 29
Sports Marketing Agent, Newport Beach, CA
It's easy to see what makes Eazy such a great catch. With a smile that lights up the room, a great career and a fun personality to match, Eazy is the total package. After playing in the NFL for four years, Eazy decided to shift gears and move into the marketing side of sports where he now has a very successful career as an agent. While his place of work has shifted from the field to the office, Eazy still dreams of world domination and shows no signs of slowing down. The only difference now is that Eazy says he is much more focused on his personal life -- he's ready to find his queen! Eazy is a hopeless romantic who loves being in a relationship and says he is looking for a woman to be the other half of a power couple. She has to have passion to be great in her career, but also know how to turn off work mode and enjoy the fun side of life. Above all, Eazy wants to make his family proud, and what better way to do that than by capturing the heart of America's most eligible bachelorette?
- Nobody hypes Eazy up better than himself.
- Eazy hates insects, especially ones that fly.
- Eazy's dream is to own the New York Yankees.
- Eazy has seen every episode of "Grey's Anatomy."

I look forward to his comedic moments and commentary as the season progresses.
