Jenn took a conservative approach on her first night, locking lips with just one of her 25 suitors.

The lucky guy was Sam M., who was also the recipient of Jenn’s first impression rose.

“I’ve seen the show; I know how it works. I know people are making out left and right,” Jenn explained to USA Today in a recent interview.

“I really just wanted to stay true to who I am.”

Who Did Jenn Send Home on Night One?

But while Sam M. emerged as an early front-runner, seven unlucky guys were sent home before they even had a chance to unpack.

As Life & Style reports, Brendan, Brett, Caleb, Dakota, Kevin, Matt, and Ricky were all left empty-handed at the conclusion of Jenn’s first rose ceremony.

We’re sure it was a crushing blow for those guys, but you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet!

And Jenn has made it clear that she’s not taking any chances with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to find her person.

Jenn’s Second Shot at Love

Jenn, of course, was a contestant on Joey Graziadei’s season of The Bachelor.

While she and Joey were not a love match, Jenn quickly emerged as a fan favorite, and her popularity helped her to land the coveted gig of Bachelorette.

Clearly, Jenn wasn’t thrilled with the prospect of eliminating so many men on her very first night.

The rose ceremony was an emotional one, but it also gave us the impression that the new Bachelorette has embraced the responsibilities of her position.

Elsewhere in the episode, Jenn made it clear that she knows what she wants, and she’s confident in her ability to find love.

“I’m looking for a partner who really prioritizes me and values me and listens to me and sees me and tries to understand me and wants to love me,” she said.

“I feel like I’m going to fall in love. I’m going to get engaged, and I’m going to do it my way.”

We have no doubt that Jenn will find what she’s looking for on this journey. And we can’t wait to watch it all unfold!

So check back all season as we continue to keep you up to speed on Jenn’s search for Mr. Right!
