The Bachelor: An Officer and a Gentleman

Thirty-year-old U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, M.D., is on board as the 10th star of The Bachelor (can you believe we're still watching??). In my opinion, he is without a doubt the sexiest Bachelor to date. Hello, he's run six triathalons and he's a doctor who's all about helping kids... catch, catch, catch!

Check out the highlights from last night's premiere:

The Premise
Andy met all 25 contestants at the house for party, which turned out to be his birthday party.

The First Rose
StephanieT. from Folly Beach, South Carolina made a winning first-impression on Andy and received a rose before she had even walked in the door.

The New Erika
Does everyone remember last season's socialite and resident brat Erika? Well, this season, we had Lindsay, a 22-year-old student from Lawrence, Kansas. She was the one who was calling Stephanie T. "heinous" and "lucky" for getting the first rose before she had even had a conversation with Andy. In the end, Andy ultimately cut her -- thank God because I don't think I could handle one more minute of her! Before the rose ceremony had ended, she stormed off the set a threw a temper tantrum. Not like, sniffle, sniffle, tear -- like full on two-year-old temper tantrum. She swore a bunch and then said she didn't care because Andy was short, had a big head and fake-looking teeth. I'm surprised the producers didn't make Andy keep her on for the added drama.

The Final Fifteen
At the end of the night, there were 15 lucky ladies who will continue to compete for Andy's affection. See who they are in our Bachelor Countdown! Is there one you like in particular already? Or hate? Do you think the girls are as pretty this season as they have been in the past?
