Rachel returns from last season of “The Bachelor” with Nick to become the first ever black women to star as a Bachelorette. The lawyer from Dallas, Texas has not only brought diversity within the show, but also her heart opens to love. With 30 guys ready to take her Rachel as their wives, some made more of a first impression than others. From the penguin guy to the drummer boy there were plenty of memorable moments in the first week. Here are 10 moments to note from the season premiere of the Bachelorette.

1. WHABOOM

Honestly what more is there to say? Lucas came out ready to party and simply have fun. The goofy guy showed his character to the audience with his megaphone and his whacky WABOOM tank top to complement his outfit. His quirky narration of other’s encounters with Rachel made him one to remember.

2. Diggy the sneakerhead

Diggy the sneakerhead from Chicago came in with some confidence but was fearful of getting rejected. Luck was in his favor as he got the rose at the end of the night. But, I still can’t get over how Chicago native has 575 pairs of shoes including Yeezy’s. I need to step my game up alongside him.


3. Mohit the Bollywood dancer...turned alcoholic?

Mohit had it going for him. Handsome. Bollywood dancer. Ready for love. Except he chooses not to talk to Rachel at all. He shoots his shot and it plays a consequence. It cost him a rose. Also, the fact that maybe he was too drunk to talk to her was an important factor too.


4. Bryan the Colombian ready for love

Bryan stole the show when he started speaking in Spanish. He had the audience and Rachel swooning at his every word, even if many weren’t sure of what those words were. The Colombian from Florida had Rachel, giving him the first impression rose without a doubt.

5. Brady the literal ice breaker

Brady came in ready to be the man of the hour. He came to Rachel taking this pun to new levels. Being the great “ice-breaker" he is, he brings out a chunk of ice and breaks it to bring the incredible pun to life. Rachel definitely had a laugh from that.

6. Blake E...the drummer boy

Blake E had an unforgettable performance that shocked everyone, including me. He came ready to play—literally—as he showed up with a marching band, being the star of the band.

7. Matt the penguin

It wouldn’t be “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” without someone dressed up in a costume. The past season there was shark girl, now there is penguin boy. Sporting Rachel’s favorite animal Matt shows up to impress her in a memorable costume.


8. Josiah...confident or cocky?

Josiah repeatedly makes his presence known by telling the guys that he is the one for Rachel and there is really no need to continue. He even makes the bold move of putting on the first impression rose. He was so sure he was going to be the one but, has his attitude put in check when he loses it to Bryan.


9. Adam and Adam Jr?

Just when we thought Matt the penguin wasn’t weird, Adam comes along with doll representing his “son.” It was a very interesting, yet extremely creepy way to try and impress Rachel, but it worked.


10. Lucas shocking us all getting the final rose...WHABOOM!

Well, there’s really nothing else I can say about this one.

I would say Bryan was one of my favorites from the very beginning. Who was yours and who do you think will make it all the way to the end? Leave your prediction in the comments below.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.
