After host Chris Harrison wished Andy Baldwin a happy birthday, Andy
got to meet the twenty-five bachelorettes. Andy had a first impression
rose that he gave to Stephanie T. from Folly Beach, South Carolina.
After the initial introductions, Andy spent some time in the house talking to the bachelorettes. While Andy was learning about the girls for the first time, Linda said that they had read all about Andy on the Internet. Tina sang the national anthem to Andy. After talking with the girls, Andy said “Not only are these women absolutely gorgeous, but they have careers, they’re intelligent.”
Lindsay voiced her displeasure that Andy gave Stephanie T. his first rose, calling her “kind of heinous.” Blakeny fell off her bar stool, and Lindsay laughed at her, which led to a yelling match. Peyton revealed to Andy that it was her birthday today, and Andy told her that it was his birthday as well. Some of the girls made Andy a cake using tequila as an ingredient. Stephanie W. did back flips in her dress for Andy.
Since Andy had already given a rose to Stephanie T, he had fourteen roses to give out at the first rose ceremony. Andy gave roses to Peyton, Bevin, Kate, Alexis, Danielle I, Amber, Tiffany W, Tessa, Nicole, Susan, Amanda, Erin, Tina, and Stephanie W.
After Andy had made his choices, Lindsay stormed out of the room and said she wanted to go home. Lindsay through a temper tantrum and said “And you know what, truth be told, he’s short, and his head is big, and his teeth look fake.”
