Lily Price | 23 | Crane Operator | VIC
It might not be a plane, but crane operator Lily still took her Bachelor entrance to new heights by arriving in a rose-decorated hot air balloon.
And our leading man was certainly smitten by blonde beauty, mesmerised by her blue eyes.
"There's probably a big smile on my face," Jimmy told the camera. "She's beautiful."
Brooke Cleal | 27 | Occupational Therapist | VIC
Brooke's Bachelor entrance has given us food envy. The occupational therapist brought a Sri Lankan love cake to share with Jimmy and it certainly went over well with the show's leading man.
Though, in what was a good sign, he was more interested in Brooke than the cake.
"Brooke's breathtakingly beautiful, I'm doing backflips inside," he confessed.
Holly Kingston | 27 | Marketing Manager | NSW
In an ultimate turning the tables power move, marketing manager Holly planned a single date for her first meeting with Jimmy.

"It's flirty, it's fun. The chemistry's definitely there," Jimmy said.
Jay Lal | 31 | Nutritionist | NSW
While this nutritionist may not have been able to say 'checkmate' during the chess game she challenged Jimmy to, she has definitely made some solid moves to win over Jimmy's heart.
"I feel like Jay's chess probably game didn't go to plan," the pilot confessed, before adding: "It's really cute and it's just really authentic."
Chanel Tang | 34 | Flight Manager | NSW
If you thought we were laying on the pilot puns thick, flight manager Chanel went all in on her first meeting with Jimmy.
The red carpet was adorned with an aeroplane passenger seat, in which Jimmy sat while holding a glass of champagne (though, we're sure he's more accustomed to the cockpit).
While Jimmy kicked back and relaxed, Chanel said into a fake PA system, "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome on board Bachelor airways flight 2021. Destination: true love".
The bit earned a chuckle from Jimmy which only intensified as the flight manager purposely fell into his lap while demonstrating how to recline the seat.
"A bit of unexpected turbulence at the start there which… I’m not complaining," Jimmy told the camera through a smile.
