Find Out Who Clayton Echard Sent Home Last Night on Night 1 of The Bachelor Season 26

Clayton Echard‘s quest to find love as the star of Season 26 of The Bachelor officially began on Monday night, but as is always the case on everyone’s favorite all’s-fair-in-love-and-on-reality-TV franchise, not all of his romantic wannabes managed to stick around past the first night.

On Jan. 3’s premiere episode, the 28-year-old, Season 26 lead met 31 pretty potential paramours. They included: Salley Carson, who went to Clayton’s hotel room before the first cocktail party to cry about how she was supposed to get married the day before (and got offered a rose that she rejected, opting to head home instead): Susie Evans, who used a hidden hand buzzer when she shook Clayton’s hand and joked about feeling “electricity” between them; Kate Gallivan, who pulled liquor bottles out of her dress and joked that she and Clayton would feel less nervous if they each held one of her “nips;” and Kira Mengistu, the physician who showed up in red lingerie with nothing but a lab coat on top.

Bachelor Nation fans were also re-introduced to former Bachelor star and new host Jesse Palmer.

So, which contestants already got the boot? Find out who Clayton Echard sent home on the first night of The Bachelor Season 26—and who got his first impression rose.

Who got Clayton Echard’s first impression rose on The Bachelor?

You could argue that, technically, Salley got offered the first rose—but she turned it down. The real first impression rose went to Teddi Wright, the virgin from California, who also was the first contestant to kiss Clayton. “There’s a clear connection,” Clayton told her. “She’s got me feeling some type of way,” he later said during his one-on-one interview with producers.
