The first episode of The Bachelor Thailand, which aired on Channel 3, was full of surprises and drama. The show follows the journey of 22 women who are competing for the affections of a single man, the bachelor.
The episode started with a montage of the bachelor, Thiti “Mike” Mahayotaruk, getting ready for his big night. He talked about how excited he was to meet the women and find “true love.” Mike is a successful businessman in his late 30s, who is looking for someone to settle down with.
As the limousines pulled up to the mansion, the women stepped out one by one, introducing themselves to the camera and the bachelor. The women came from all walks of life, from a nurse to a personal assistant to a student. They all seemed eager to make a good impression on the bachelor.
The first woman to step out of the limousine was Baitong, a 27-year-old personal assistant. She immediately caught Mike’s eye with her charming smile and bubbly personality. He seemed impressed with her confidence and didn’t hesitate to give her the coveted “first impression” rose.
However, not all the women were as lucky as Baitong. Some of them made awkward first impressions, like Tan, who showed up in a chicken suit, or Namthip, who brought a giant teddy bear as a gift. Mike didn’t seem too impressed with either of them and they were the first two women to be eliminated.
As the night progressed, the women tried to get to know Mike better, some of them putting on elaborate performances or sharing emotional stories. One woman, Onkeo, even showed up in a wedding dress and had a fake wedding ceremony with Mike. However, it wasn’t enough to win his heart and she was also eliminated.
The other women were not faring much better. Some of them were struggling to make a connection with the bachelor, while others were getting caught up in drama with their fellow contestants. A few of the women, like Pia and Jane, seemed to have a genuine spark with Mike and were getting more attention from him.
As the night drew to a close, Mike had to make some tough decisions. He only had 15 roses to give out and 19 women were still vying for his attention. Some of the women who were on the chopping block included Lek, who had made a memorable entrance on a horse, and Som, who had impressed Mike with her cooking skills.
In the end, Mike chose to give the 15 roses to the women he felt the strongest connection with. The eliminated women were left heartbroken, some of them crying as they said goodbye to the bachelor.
Overall, the first episode of The Bachelor Thailand was filled with surprises and drama. The women had to navigate tricky first impressions, deal with their own insecurities, and compete with each other for the bachelor’s attention. It remains to be seen who will win Mike’s heart and become the next bachelor couple, but there’s no doubt that there will be plenty of drama and romance along the way.
