Monday night Twitter is exploding with live tweeting of ABC’s The Bachelor 2012 premiere. The highly-anticipated premiere features Ashley Hebert’s runner-up Ben Flajnik as he searches for love. Fans were thrilled to see lovebirds Ashley and JP join “Bachelor Nation” buddies Ashley Spivey, Jackie Gordon, Alli Travis and other NYC friends for a viewing party. They are picking their favorites, and cheering Ben on as he greets his 25 bachelorettes. Fans are enjoyinig the show, of course, but are also enjoying the fun of following their favorites as they watch the show.
Throughout Sunday and Monday, Ashley Hebert, Ashley Spivey, JP Rosenbaum and Spivey’s boyfriend Scott Wheaton were joking on Twitter about Monday night’s The Bachelor viewing party. Hebert was seeking fan’s ideas of an appetizer to bring (jalapeno poppers were the winner) while JP wondered if there would be any testosterone at the party. Luckily for him, Wheaton piped up and joked, ” So much testosterone – we’re going to wrestle sharks, make aggressive after market trades, bench press & shotgun Budweisers.”
Midway through the premiere, Ashley Hebert shared her top five favorite gals so far: “1. Amber T. 2. Jamie. 3. Nicki 4. Kacie 5. Lindzi are my top 5!!!!!!! maybe it will change! We will see! :)” Of course Ashley and JP know Ben Flajnik pretty well after their time together on The Bachelorette last spring, so will they have the inside track on picking out the right lady for Ben? Fans will be watching closely to see how well their picks fare this season!
