05/18/15 | TV-14 | CC

For the first time, two bachelorettes -- Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe -- greet potential love interests on the 2015 season premiere of The Bachelorette. And perhaps even more deliciously dramatic, for the first time, those two bachelorettes are waiting out in front of the Bachelor Mansion waiting to greet the 25 bachelors as soon as they arrive in their limos.

So as soon as the first limo door opens, the drama begins, because now these guys have to decide who to approach first. No pressure though, because while a guy is talking to one of the ladies, the other gets to just stand by awkwardly while the other two flirt, creating tension right off the bat.

As always, the arrivals are glorious -- Shawn E arrives in a hot tub car, Chris pulls up in a cupcake car, Joe shares some moonshine with the ladies -- and both ladies take turns feeling like all the guys are into the other bachelorette candidate. Which makes the cocktail party interesting, because this is usually where we see the guys going nuts, fighting for 1-on-1 time, but in this case, Britt and Kaitlyn are the ones feeling the pressure because the twist has been revealed: The guys are going to vote on who becomes the next Bachelorette.

So everyone at the party is feeling at least some pressure, scrambling to make a connection with someone. Ryan M seems to feel a whole lot of pressure of some kind, because he drinks A LOT and ends up making a few enemies quickly. But his routine is quickly put to an end after he slaps Kaitlyn on the butt, because that's a line that just can't be crossed. Host Chris Harrison calls him outside, and kicks him off the show, sending him home before the Rose Ceremony.

And soon the guys begin to break into two camps -- Team Britt and Team Kaitlyn. The vote will determine whose affection they'll be fighting for all season, but they also quickly realize that casting a vote for the woman who isn't sticking around could be detrimental to their chances going forward.

But they've got to pick someone. And at the end of the episode, the votes have been cast. You'll have to watch the second part of the two-night premiere to see who will go on to be the next Bachelorette!
