Our Favorite Bachelorette Contestants From This Season So Far

While Rachel and Gabby's groundbreaking season of The Bachelorette has barely even begun, we can't help but have formed a few favorite contestants already.

With more guys (32, to be specific) than ever for our Bachelorette(s) to get to know, there's a solid assortment of both the usual future-Bachelor-wannabes, funny guys, tall, dark and handsome types and even a set of twins to spice things up a bit. But who has already stood out and started to steal our hearts? Here are a few that have caught our (and Rachel and Gabby's) eye so far:

7. Tino

Tino is the perfect mix of cringey and cute. His dance moves and cheesy nature are nearly ick-inducing, but his sweetness with the girls (especially Rachel when it comes to his scene with her on the stairs) makes up for it. He seems like he's off to a great start, so we'll be watching out for him for sure.

6. Mario

Mario knows how to make a good impression, especially with Gabby. He comes off as authentic, which isn'always the case with contestants on these shows, but it certainly is a breath of fresh air that we can't wait to see more of.

5. Alec

Alec wins major points for style—and we don't just mean with his earring. His intro was impossible to ignore, and it was the one that mentioned Clayton that the girls seemed to actually appreciate.

4. Hayden

While we don't love that it seems like Hayden might cause a bit of a stir (judging by a clip from a future episode shown in the intro), he is an absolute sweetheart who seems to have the right intentions. After all, he appears to have his eyes set on Rachel, who lives only an hour away from him back in the real world outside of the Bachelor mansion.

3. Ryan

The comedic chemistry between this Boston-based guy (who Gabby playfully interrupted about 15 times in one sitting) was tough to ignore, so we're excited to see if this playful banter continues throughout the season.

2. Aven

Not only is this 28-year-old sales executive fun to look at, but he also came forward with a very wholesome and family-loving vibe that our Bachelorettes seemed to appreciate. And hey, anyone who mentions Gabby's precious grandpa wins points in our book.

1. Jordan H.

Come on, we didn't hate the cover-each-bachelorette's-ears-to-speak-to-them-directly-without-the-other-hearing trick—it was actually kind of cute. Plus, he seemed to establish at least some sort of connection with our girls, so we're going to be keeping an eye on him as the season progresses. (Side note: the other Jordan, Jordan V., deserves an honorable mention on this list for his conversation with Rachel, so we're keeping him as one to watch as well).

With a whopping 32 men to choose from, we know that there's still plenty to be seen past night one of Season 19—but these seven men made such an impression that we're certainly excited to see where they go, and we aren't afraid to crown them as our favorite Bachelorette contestants from this season so far. There are other showstoppers, no doubt, but we can't help but question the intentions of other screen-stealers like Erich and Logan. Whatever happens this season, we're so happy to have our Monday night binge-worthy content back for now.
