Ali Oetjen and Bill First Kiss The Bachelorette 2018

Watch: The Moment Bill Got the First Kiss of the Season on The Bachelorette

The Wild Rose

The wild rose and the first kiss of the season goes to Bill!

Posted by The Bachelorette Australia on Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Ali Oetjen's turn as The Bachelorette premiered last night, and we got our first glimpse at the 18 eligible bachelors vying for her heart. In what was certainly a jam-packed hour and a half of television, there was dancing, there was drama, there was Paddy (enough said), but the biggest moment came when Ali handed out the Wild Rose.

Each season, the bachelorette is tasked with handing out a rose that grants a special power to the one man who has made the best impression on her. This year, the Wild Rose's power allows the chosen bachelor to be able to swap themselves into someone else's single date, essentially stealing it from them, which will no doubt cause high tension when the moment arrives. The lucky recipient of this powerful prize was Bill, the man who endeared himself to Ali with his nervous rambling and humility. He impressed her with his willingness to be vulnerable, making him a stand-out among a crowd partially made up of inflated egos.

But the Wild Rose wasn't the only thing Bill received, as he also nabbed the first kiss of the season too. After Ali was infamously rebuffed by Tim on the first night when she appeared on his season, it certainly feels like a full circle moment. While it didn't go down too well with some of the other contestants, it seems safe to say Bill has firmly cemented himself as a frontrunner.

Watch the full moment above!
