Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for Season 26 of The Bachelor.
Which lucky lady gets Clayton Echard's first impression rose on Season 26 of The Bachelor? The first night at Bachelor Mansion is vital for the contestants vying for Clayton's heart. And the prize that every woman wants on that first night is the ever-so-important first impression rose.
Not only does the rose keep that recipient safe from night-one eliminations, but it also means they've been successful in catching the lead's eye. (What's more, the person who lands the first impression rose historically makes it very far on the show.) Who was the lady who made such an impression on Clayton? His season may not air until Jan. 3, but we've got the juicy details for you now.
Surgical unit nurse Teddi Wright gets the first impression rose.
Clayton gives his first impression rose to 24-year-old Teddi Wright, a surgical unit nurse who hails from Highland, Calif. According to Teddi's official bio from ABC, Teddi is a "hopeless romantic" who's all about that instant connection. She's looking for someone "who won't be intimidated when she asks hard-hitting questions on the first date."
Teddi's bio also notes that she's looking for a man who has a sense of adventure and knows how to have fun — someone "who won't be afraid to join her for a late-night skinny dip!" The nurse says she loves massage and would eat pasta for every meal if she could! (Girl, same.)
Teddi seems like wifey material! How far does she get with Clayton?
Unfortunately, while Teddi does get a one-on-one date with Clayton in Croatia, according to Reality Steve, she isn't one of his final four. As of now, it's not known when Teddi gets eliminated. Could Clayton decide not to give her a rose at the end of their one-on-one because he realizes they lack that strong connection? Or could it be that Teddi simply gets lost in a sea of drama, much like Matt James' first rose impression pick, Abigail Heringer? (Poor Abigail. Matt basically straight up told her that he forgot about her.)
We'd like to know more about Teddi!
Teddi's Instagram page reveals a lady who loves dogs and is super close to her family and friends. She made a heartwarming post about her sister getting married. Clayton's first impression rose pick also shared that she never tires of beach sunsets.
Since Teddi doesn't get Clayton's final rose, we're thinking she should definitely get an invite to the Bachelor in Paradise beach. We're rooting for Teddi's journey for love, wherever it takes her! You can watch Season 26 of The Bachelor when it premieres on Jan. 3, 2022, at 8 p.m EST on ABC.
