On Wednesday night we met our shiny new bachelorette, Georgia Love.
While we already knew a few things about Ms Love (she’s a serious career-driven journalist lady looking for a man who gives her heart tingles), this was the first time we REALLY got to know our bachie queen.
And if Richie’s season taught us anything, it’s this: the first episode decides whether we will hate-love or love-love the person deemed the most eligible in the country.
Last night, the nation decided what it thinks of Georgia.
We love-love-freakin’-LOVE her, and there are three clear reasons why.
1. She’s SMAAAAAAART.
If you were worried Georgia would struggle cracking out of her emotionless journalist persona, you really shouldn’t have.
On the premiere episode, she had intelligence, eloquence, and wit in spades.
And her vocabulary? It definitely exceeds "you... look... incredible".
I think she even said the word "ambivalent" at one point, and if that's not 10 points to Gryffindor then I dunno what is.
2. She's not afraid to laugh at herself.
After seeing those sad, gloomy ads where Georgia was inexplicably holding a big-ass umbrella (?) we were delighted to find out that this girl is fuuuu-nny!
From handling her J-Law-esque stair fall with grace and humour to shaving off a dude's beard, our new bachelorette had us giggling/slightly peeing our pants from start to finish.
3. She speaks her mind.
You know what, super-hot-but-douchey-dude Sam? Sometimes a girl likes her sauce in the pantry, her cats over her dogs, and is impartial to coriander.
THAT IS NOT A CRIME AND GEORGIA IS NOT HERE TO PLEASE YOU, PEASANT. IT'S THE OTHER WAY 'ROUND.
What made Georgia such a standout Bachie goddess was that she gave precisely zero craps about pleasing the penis possessors. She's a goddamn catch just as she is and she knows it. How utterly refreshing.
All hail Georgia Love, our hero, our queen.
