The Bachelor night 1: A time for the ladies to make their best first impression, or, in some cases, make an awkward attempt to nab that coveted first kiss. 

“I’m the only one that kissed him so far and I am not going to let Ben forget about me,” says Lace, 25, in an exclusive sneak peek at the premiere. To Ben, she asks, “Is it awkward if I ask you for a better first kiss?” 

Yes, Lace, the answer is always yes if you have to ask.

Ben, who doesn’t appear to be all that interested in the real estate agent from Denver, lets her down in the nicest — and most reasonable — way possible. Check out the clip above.
