Not surprisingly, all the lads were frothing for the coveted first-time yellow rose.
"Man, the 24-hour rose is the biggest game-changer," said I-brought-a-bunch-of-sunflowers-guy Timm.
"You can learn so much about a person in 24 hours. So, 100%, I'm gunning for that."
Firefighting puppy wrangler Jamie was super keen for the flower, too
"Spending 24 hours with Angie this early on would be the perfect opportunity to really solidify that spiritual connection between the two of us from the red carpet. I really want that rose."
But after a quick chat with her brother Brad, who slipped into the group of guys as a spy, Angie chose chiselled-jawed hunk Carlin to wear the yellow rose.
"Carlin's super-genuine," Brad advised before she made her final choice.
He also looks like he's carved out of marble, although that's something that Brad failed to mention.
Pulling Carlin aside, Angie explained to the total hunk:
"The reason why I wanted to give you this rose is that we didn't get to spend a whole lot of time together earlier this evening. But as soon as I met you and looking into your eyes, I just felt like you were somebody I want to get to know. And then you went out of your way to, you know, write that song for me, which usually I would find quite cringe, to be honest... I didn't, though!
"That's why I thought that there's something different about you, because I really loved it. Carlin, I wanted to know if you will accept this yellow rose?"
You're damn right, he did!
Carlin had that sucker pinned on faster than you can say "BRING ON THE GENTLEMEN" and wore it proudly to the first rose ceremony of the show... where we were all horrified to watch as smarmy politician Jess received a rose and made it through to night two.
(Although, let's be honest, he's going to make for some can't-look-away viewing.)
Sadly, we did have to say goodbye to two guys whose names didn't... actually... come up all that much during the episode (that's the way premiere cookie crumbles, right?), but see ya later, Oliver and Josh, hope you boys had fun!
