The Best Reactions to the Girl Dressed as a Dolphin (Not a Shark) on ‘The Bachelor’

It’s way too early to make predictions, but if the limo entrances are any indication, this season of The Bachelor is going to get weird. Between camels, shark costumes and someone calling Nick out for being a “piece of sh*t,” it’s going to be a big season.
Rachel got the first impression rose and an awkward kiss, but it’s Corinne who we’ve got our eye on as a front runner. So many folks are talking about those entrances, and the ensuing craziness. Take a look at reactions from the big moments of The Bachelor season 21 premiere.
Before Nick ever even stepped foot on those bricks for that awkward reception line, he met with some Bachelor Nation alums. They offered some good advice, but they also had some real-time reactions.

Based on the season 21 premiere, who do you think is the front runner? Any guesses about who the next Bachelorette might be?
