The crane operator used her career to her advantage when she descended into the first cocktail party via a very floral crane.
"When I met Jimmy, it was just a rush of intensity," she admitted after their first chat.
The Bachelor himself was instantly taken when he met Lily as well, and couldn't help complimenting her on her blue eyes.
"I think when I'm attracted to someone I make it pretty obvious, there's probably a very attentive stare and probably a big smile on my face. So I'm feeling a little bit awkward where I've got 22 girls who I've just met looking at me smiling at another girl."
Lily also had an unexpected connection with one of the contestants.
Turns out she and Ashleigh, who Jimmy sent home ahead of a rose ceremony, hail from the same hometown but didn't actually meet until they were in the mansion together.
"We didn’t actually know each other which is astounding because we’re from such a small town but the connections we have are just bizarre," Ashleigh told WHO after her elimination.
"I was at a baby shower the day before I went that her housemate and best friend were at and I was spending time with her housemate before I went on The Bachelor and yet I’d never I met Lily but I knew exactly who she was. And then we became really good friends while we were there."

Sparks certainly are flying between Lily and Jimmy.
Ahead of their single date, the handsome pilot admitted: "Lily has this effect on me where she manages to get my attention."
And the feeling is definitely mutual.
"I've never felt like this, I'm surprising myself!" Lily laughed in a trailer.
With the bookies tipping her to be in the top five, we expect to see this beauty at hometowns. Guess we'll have to stay tuned...
