"The Bachelor" kicked off its latest season with more awkward introductions. This time around, one contestant showed up with a fake baby bump, while another broke down crying about her ex-fiance -- awkward! Another offered Juan Pablo Galavis a stethoscope to listen to her heart. But it was the first impression rose that created the most awkward moment.

Juan Pablo was clearly enjoying his first one-on-one date with Sharleen, but was she feeling the same? "Juan Pablo is definitely a good package," Sharleen admitted. "But I guess I thought that I would feel more of this, like, insta-chemistry than I did.” She said it seemed "a little forced."

Still, when Juan Pablo offered her a rose, Sharleen accepted. She said, "Sure, yes," and took the rose. Not exactly an enthusiastic response, but maybe he'll grow on her. Luckily, he thought her odd response was due to her being shocked. Hollywood Life's Emily Longeretta enjoyed their opposing reactions, writing, "Everyone in the house was shocked, but I wasn’t — he completely loved everything about her. However, she also wasn’t crazy about him like the others, which isn’t exactly fair. But, I guess love isn’t.”

"The Bachelor" continues on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Fans can also enjoy weekly "Bachelor" specials every Sunday in January at 8 p.m. EST.
