Alicia, 24
Professional Ballerina, New York, New York

Alicia is a hard-working and incredibly driven woman. When she was only 13, she began pursuing her career as a professional ballerina. Through years of dedication and commitment to her craft, she is now proudly living her dream, dancing for the prestigious Dance Theater of Harlem. While it took a ton of hard work to get where she is, Alicia wouldn't change a thing. After years of being unlucky in love, Alicia is ready to find a man who will absolutely desire her. Her ultimate date consists of a day on the boat drinking champagne and eating from a thoughtfully curated charcuterie board followed by shopping and a romantic dinner at one of New York's best rooftop bars. She describes herself as very confident but not sappy. She's not looking for anyone who relies on cheesy pickup lines and would prefer a man who gets straight to the point. For Alicia, it's all about finding a handsome, intelligent and respectful man who is not afraid to put in the hard work to make their love go the distance.

- Alicia once performed onstage with Aretha Franklin. RESPECT!
- Alicia loves hot chocolate.
- Alicia says she loves all vegetables, with the exception of tomatoes.

Amber, 30
Nursing Student. Costa Mesa, California

Amber is a vivacious single mother whose world revolves around her 13-year-old son. Currently, her typical Saturday night consists of dinner and board games with her son or soaking in the Jacuzzi with close friends. Amber finds it hard to date as a single mom, but now she is ready to focus on herself for the first time in a long time. When asked what her physical type is, Amber enthusiastically says "MATT JAMES!" She is looking for a man with whom to travel the world and eventually have more kids. She is caring, trustworthy and open-minded, but admittedly is also stubborn and a bit impatient. She says she is terrified of being on the edge of cliffs, but she is ready to take the leap head first into this once-in-a-lifetime adventure and hopefully return home with the man of her dreams by her side.

- While traveling through Joshua Tree, California, Amber once had to run away from a mountain lion.
- Amber's dream job would be to take care of beluga whales because they just make her so happy.
- Her dream is to live on a big ranch somewhere near a lake surrounded by trees and to rescue every animal she comes across that needs a home.

Anna, 24
Copywriter, Chicago, Illinois

Anna is a small-town girl, living the big city life. She was born and raised in a tiny town in Minnesota, and at an early age, her parents nicknamed her Hollywood, thanks to her affinity for chic scarves and oversized sunglasses. As much as she loved her childhood filled with Friday nights at the local bowling alley and family dinners at Applebee's, this high school cheerleading captain knew she was meant for something bigger. Now, she lives in Chicago and says she is living the life she always envisioned for herself. She is looking for a man who will take her as the open book that she is—the good, the bad and the ugly. She wants a man who wants to have a family just as much as she does, and who will have no problem being open and honest in communication. Due to her Gemini vibes, she needs someone who is a match for her intellect but will also always want to keep life fun. Oh … and her dream guy must enjoy doing puzzles with her!

- Anna is TERRIFIED of fish and OBSESSED with cheese.
- She calls herself an "experience junkie" and once convinced a pilot to let her fly the plane over bluffs of Minnesota for 15 minutes
- Anna dreams of writing screenplays for Hallmark movies.

Bri, 24
Communications Manager, San Francisco, CA

Bri is really something special. She was raised by her mother and grandmother who made countless sacrifices to give her a fighting shot at having a successful life. For this reason, Bri has always outworked everyone around her because she learned early on that everything in life was earned not promised. Bri now works for a high-profile social media company and is very proud of her achievements, as she should be. With her professional life intact, she is ready to focus on her personal life and find the man of her dreams. Bri describes herself as very laid-back and someone who is not embarrassed easily. She says that she is always the alpha in the relationship but would love to find someone who can challenge her and keep life interesting and exciting. It's very rare that she spends a weekend indoors and not outside hiking or hanging at the park and nearby beaches. One day, Bri hopes to have two or three kids of her own.

- Her dream is to live in Kauai and to live the island life eating nothing but sushi, swimming in the ocean and hiking.
- Brunching is one of her favorite activities.
- Bri has two tattoos: a wave on her left wrist and another on her right rib cage that reads "thirteen" in Farsi.

Carolyn, 30
Journalist, San Francisco, CA

Though she is fiercely independent, Carolyn is a serial monogamist who says she has always been the caretaker in her relationships. Now, she is looking for a man who will want to take care of her but will also appreciate her for the self-sufficient woman she is. Carolyn wants a bold man who won't be afraid to challenge her and call her out if she needs it. She needs someone who will appreciate her intensity and bring an equal amount of passion to the relationship. The ultimate date for Carolyn is something spontaneous that involves traveling because she says, "jumping into unfamiliar territory together is a great way to bond and get to know each other on a deeper level." Carolyn's ultimate turnoff is a man who spends all their time together name-dropping or bragging about his money, and instead hopes to find someone with a warm heart who is passionate about philanthropy. Carolyn admits that when she feels that spark, she falls hard and fast, and she can't wait to see what happens when she meets Matt that first night.

- Carolyn likes post-punk music and definitely identifies as something different than your average Top 40 basic girl.
- Nothing makes her more upset than injustice! Anyone who abuses their own power over others makes her livid.
- In five years, she hopes to have published her first novel.

Chelsea, 28
Runway Model, Brooklyn, New York

After graduating college and getting a full-time job in corporate America, Chelsea did one of the most outrageous things she's ever done in her life … she quit her job, strutted her way into the world of modeling and never looked back! Chelsea's dating life was pretty nonexistent until she was in college, and her only relationship ended a year and a half ago when, after five years of being together, she felt she had outgrown him. Now that she has spent some time playing the field, she says she has a clearer idea of what she wants out of a relationship. Chelsea loves a man who will go the extra mile to show how they really feel and really appreciates it when someone can be vulnerable and an open communicator. Her dream man will join her as she wines and dines throughout the city; and while she doesn't need it, a man who loves to spoil her from time to time is always a plus. Chelsea can't wait to find a husband and she's hoping to find that with Matt.

- Chelsea is currently learning Spanish online.
- Chelsea's favorite meal is snacks, especially if popcorn and Hot Cheetos are on the menu.
- One day, Chelsea wants to swim with stingrays.

Sharleen:

Episode 1

Welcome back, dear pandas! A couple of announcements…

As you have probably noticed, I am not recapping for Flare this season. This was a pretty last minute discovery (for both me and my editor) but I don’t think it will be a permanent change. (It’s still TBD at this point.) This will be the first time in 6.5 years I haven’t written for them (since my own time on the show!!!), which is kind of a scary feeling, if I’m honest. It also means that these Pretty Panda recaps are the only ones I’ll be writing and, yes, monetizing. So, a gentle reminder that if you enjoy what you consume here, you can support me and the community by buying me a coffee! ☕️

Without further ado, let’s recap…

“Panda bear.”
—Our Bachelor’s favorite animal

This premiere begins like any other, something that surprised me considering we knew so little about Matt heading into this season. Nevertheless, ever-confusing frankenbiting ensues…
“My name’s / Matt James.”
In his sit-down with his mother, it becomes immediately clear that a big talking point of this season will be Matt’s relationship behavior and how he tends to shut down when things get serious, and the show wastes no time crediting (via more frankenbiting) his parents’ relationship (or lack thereof)…
“Any time it gets to that point where you need to take the next step, I’ve kind of fallen back just because I’ve seen everything that’s happened with / you and dad.”

I had a laugh at the footage shown during voiceovers of Matt describing what he’s looking for in a wife…

It’s funny how the show still insists on inserting the famed ab shots, but these days they seem to try to do it in “classier” ways than the traditional slow-mo shower scenes, to the point where there’s just no cohesion between what we’re seeing and hearing.

INTRO VIDEOS

Not much stood out to me about these season’s intro videos, except that I seriously related to Anna’s assessment of the emotional experience pre-filming…

This was me to a T! 👆🏼

NIGHT ONE

It’s Night One, and instead of Chris Harrison pulling Matt aside for the traditional Night One chat, the producers strangely make Matt request this conversation. As I said on HTMF, this really felt like The Powers That Be leaning into the whole “Matt has no idea what he’s doing” narrative. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think Matt knows what he’s doing, and I find him all the more endearing for it. But making him request something that is now standard was a strange choice.

Heading into this conversation, I did enjoy Matt’s backhanded compliment about the decor…

In terms of this chat, I really enjoyed it. I can imagine some people find Matt a bit stiff, but I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise that I find his obvious discomfort in this role charming. In this chat, he’s quick to touch on being biracial (as we said on HTMF, it eerily feels like his obligation to do so). In general, he is very transparent about his flaws and general imperfectness, which I find refreshing given this show’s propensity to shout from the rooftops how perfect their leads are.

LIMO EXITS

In keeping with my tradition of sharing my first-impression notes from the limo exits, here are the ladies who stood out to me…

Bri, 24, communications manager: First limo exit! She seems wonderfully normal. This might sound weird but I LOVE her speaking voice; it’s crystal clear. Full exit/convo shown, major frontrunner potential.

Rachael, 24
Graphic Deisgner, Cumming, Georgia

With beautiful eyes and personality to match, Rachael is a southern sweetheart with a close-knit family. Though Rachael says she is a hopeless romantic to her core, she has never been in love and believes that Matt may just be the guy to change that. Rachael is hoping that her love story will be something huge and life altering. She wants to look back on her life when she's old and feel like she has made the absolute most out of every single day. Nothing makes her happier than a good movie, good wine and charcuterie boards. Rachael needs a man who will make every day with her something to tell their future children about and says, "At the end of the day, love is what makes your life more special than others. Life can be hard and really difficult and dark at times, but if you have someone by your side that loves you more than they love themselves, that makes it all worth it in the end."

- Rachael's favorite way to pass the time is by doodling.
- Rachael hates slow drivers!
- Rachael is very neat with organization and cleanliness, and messy with plans and schedule.

Sarah, 24, broadcast journalist: She’d already stolen my heart with her intro video. Full exit/convo shown.

As impressive as the Nemacolin Chateau is (ESPECIALLY after so many weeks at The Bachelorette’s decidedly less glamorous La Quinta resort), I did have a laugh over the layout of this main entrance’s setup. At the Bachelor mansion, the lead always watches each woman walk off into the house, presumably taking the back half of her in. But here, with the stairs leading upwards, it gives Matt a hilariously unobscured view of each girl’s behind. Case in point, I laughed when Sarah turned and laughed, realizing Matt was watching her walk away, unlikely to be checking out the back of her head…

Sarah, 24
Broadcast Journalist, San Diego, California

Sarah has always dreamed of finding her fairytale ending. She comes from an incredibly close-knit family and says that her parents are the true example of the loving and loyal relationship that she wants for herself one day. Sarah has been in two serious relationships, but unfortunately neither turned out to be her Prince Charming. Sarah enjoys traveling, trying new foods, going to concerts, tennis, hiking and biking. She is hoping to find a man who prioritizes fitness and a healthy lifestyle just as much as she does and wants someone who will turn every day into an adventure better than the last. One thing that is very important to Sarah is finding a man whose commitment to faith is as strong as hers. She hopes to one day be in a power couple that when they're not spending time with their kids, they are doing work for the community and giving back to children in need. Sarah is truly a hopeless romantic. Will Sarah get the fairytale ending that she has always wanted with Matt? Only time will tell.

- Sarah is a trained fire dancer.
- Sarah's personal superhero is Oprah Winfrey.
- Sarah dabbles in photography as a hobby.
