After months of (im)patiently waiting, Australia got its first look at the new bachelorette Brooke Blurton on Wednesday, and it was everything we could have asked for.

First, there was an Acknowledgement of Country and then a Welcome to Country, which made Brooke cry. And also... all of us.

There is so much about this season of The Bachelorette that is momentous. 

Brooke, the first ever Indigenous, bisexual rose-giver, is exactly what we've needed to ~shake up this franchise~ for years, and we couldn't be more excited to watch her journey.

Because of how incredibly important this representation is - in the context of the reality TV world, yes, but also as a wider part of Australian culture too - we have rounded up the best/funniest/most wholesome reactions.

Yep. Representation matters, folks (and also, it turns out we are really into Love Seat related drama).

We cannot wait for more when The Bachelorette continues tonight.
