Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette is finally here, and Twitter of course did its thing. Fans fired up their phones to lovingly cut up on Becca's new guys, her much-disliked ex Arie Luyendyk Jr. and the guy who showed up in a chicken suit.
Let's do the damn thing! And by "do the damn thing" I mean read some tweets.
Becca's goofy catchphrase — which she'd like to retire — had Bachelor Nation rolling their eyes.
It was neck-and-neck between the catchphrase and the ex about which people are already sick of hearing about.
Take a shot everytime Arie is mentioned #TheBachelorette— nicole 🥑 (@niicoleheaney) May 29, 2018
As the guys started getting introduced, a clear fan favorite emerged: former NFL player (and Aly Raisman ex) Colton.
Ok that former fball player with the cystic fibrosis foundation just melted all of America's hearts. I know it's night 1 but can he win already 😢 #TheBachelorette— Chisom (@____chisom) May 29, 2018
Colton is definitely my favorite 🔥😍 #TheBachelorette 🌹— Lauren Oakley (@laurenoakley93) May 29, 2018
becca please don't pick colton so i can have him!!! #thebachelorette— Emily Helton (@ylimehelton) May 29, 2018
Aye, I have zero jokes for this Colton dude. He's solid. #thebachelorette— Diggy Moreland (@diggymoreland) May 29, 2018
Diggy may not have had any jokes, but Justin did!
I love that Colton volunteers, but there was no way that girl was going to guess "Surprised a little girl with cystic fibrosis with a vest" in response to "guess what I did today." Be real, Colton. #TheBachelorette pic.twitter.com/lPpGFT56Tt— Justin Kirkland (@justinkirkland4) May 29, 2018
And some people aren't sure if Colton is here for Becca, of course:
Colton is here to be the next bachelor. Calling it now. #thebachelorette— Jem (@JustJem24) May 29, 2018
But look at this face!
Two guys had man buns like it was 2014.
Man bun and an arie cutout? Omg NEXT. #TheBachelorette— Blaine Dashiell (@bdash717) May 29, 2018
This is a good point.
With all these awkward nerds on #TheBachelorette, this is where Comic Con should be held from now on.— Jared Freid (@jtrain56) May 29, 2018
These guys are not actually nerds, but they are all awkward and goofy. None of them seem to know how to talk to Beeca. But they're not actually nerds, unless there's such a thing as a gym nerd, as in someone who studies working out. Which might be a thing? It is. These guys don't drink Mountain Dew, but they might drink protein shakes the way nerds drink Mountain Dew.
Anyway, we all agree the chicken guy was very wack, right?
MALE MODELS FACE AT THE CHICKEN I AM CRYING #TheBachelorette— Rebecca Winget (@rebwinget) May 29, 2018
This guy Justin is cooking tonight! Kamil ("60/40") seems like the worst dude of the season!
One astute Twitter user noticed that Jordan, the Zoolander-esque male model, looked like a mash-up of Robby Hayes and Dean Unglert, two of the previous two seasons' biggest ding-dongs.
There was one guy who Becca knew from Minneapolis. They weren't friends, but they had some people in common. And they will not be friends, because Becca was immediately suspicious of his motives for coming on the show. He didn't help his case by not remembering numerous times he'd met her.

During the rose ceremony, Joe the Grocery Store Owner from Chicago got sent home, which was too bad, because he seemed like a good guy.
What was your favorite part of the season premiere?
