Katie Thurston's Bachelorette Premiere: The Best Memes, Tweets & Reactions

Bachelor producers dropped a huge bomb on fans when they announced that not one, but two of the contestants who had vied for Matt James' heart were chosen to be Bachelorette. Bachelor Nation was thrilled that the world would be able to see both Katie Thurston and Michelle Young go through their own public searches for love. Thurston's season premiered last night, and the two hours of insanity definitely lived up to her own wild entrance.

For those of you who may not remember, Katie was the contestant who marched up to Matt James and presented him with her vibrator, saying that she wanted him to take the place of her trusty quarantine companion. While Bachelor has been slowly ramping things up in the sex department (Windmill sex, anyone?) this was probably the most forwardly sexual entrance we've seen yet. That sex positivity has clearly carried over to Katie's season.

During the episode, Katie was very explicit in her desire for a partner who doesn't shy away from sex stuff - even adding that her family would be hard pressed to approve of a suitor who's shy about entering the bedroom. Judging by the episode's introductions, this attitude (and her vibrator stunt) influenced a lot of men to get incredibly dirty with their greetings. One contestant, Cody, even tried to one-up Thurston by presenting her with a blow-up doll, explaining that it was his answer to her vibrator.

For all the sexy talk, many fans on Twitter expressed confusion (and delight) that producers decided to stir the pot by throwing a conservative virgin into the mix. But that wasn't the only aspect of the show that got meme'd. Other goofy contestants got the meme treatment as well. While some were mocked (Connor, the wholesome math teacher who spent the evening in a cat suit), Greg Grippo seems to have stolen the hearts of Bachelor Nation's Twitter contingent. Greg, the youngest of four children, presented Katie with a very special gift - a pasta necklace made by his three-year-old niece. He was rewarded with a very aggressive makeout session. Maybe this is an instance in which the nice guy finishes first? Whatever his fate, all we know is that the craziness got us pretty pumped for next week's episode and the inevitable drama. These memes and reactions might get you pumped, too.

All The Best Memes & Reactions To Last Night's Epic Fence Jumpin' 'Bachelor' (SPOILERS)

The moment that all fans of 'The Bachelor' have been waiting for finally happened last night - the fence jumping moment that has been teased since episode 1. While we still have a two-night finale to look forward to, a whole lotta drama happened (and we can expect more during tonight's edition of Women Tell All). 

First, Tayshia and Colton shared a romantic helicopter ride to a dreamy cliffside castle, where the pair made a lot of virginity jokes. Despite a lot of ogling and even a nip slip, Colton and Tayshia opted against a night of Fantasy Suite deflowering. Tayshia seemed a bit disappointed, but in the end was just grateful to get to know Underwood a little better. 

Next up was Cassie's date. The two seemed to be getting along brilliantly, sharing steamy kisses on idyllic Portugal streets, and goofing off in souvenir shops. The fun stuff finally gave way when Colton revealed that Cassie's father had not given the stud his blessing. Colton was hopeful that the duo could move past a moment that clearly shook Cassie to her core, but matters got worse when Daddy Randplph himself showed up to persuade his daughter to cut things off with the former NFL player. The evening culminated in an agonizing stretch of Colton and Cassie going back and forth, and Colton inexplicably announcing that she's the one he wants to end up with. Cassie eventually decided to dip, which led to the much-awaited fence-jumping. For a moment that everyone has been waiting for, it sure seemed anticlimactic. 

As can be expected, fans on Twitter went absolutely wild tweeting reactions, gifs, and even some well-crafted memes in response. Here are some of our favorites.
