New to The Bachelorette? This glossary provides a general guideline of how the show is typically structured. There are often variations of the format as love is not predictable and neither is the show!

Limo Arrivals – During the season premiere, the Bachelorette stands outside the mansion as the suitors vying for her love cascade out of the limo using everything from puns to props to make a memorable first impression.

First Impression RoseIf one is given, this is the first rose presented during the season premiere of The Bachelorette and is bestowed upon the man who makes (you guessed it) the best first impression on the Bachelorette. Typically, this rose is given out before the first rose ceremony and guarantees that the recipient will make it to the next week in the journey to find love.

Date Card - A date card is the official invitation from the Bachelorette to join her on a 1-on-1 date, 2-on-1 date, or group date. The date card usually gives a small hint as to what the date will involve.

Group Dates – Select groups of men go on a date and partake in an activity with the Bachelorette in hopes of receiving the group date rose (see below).  Whoever captivates the Bachelorette, receives extra time with her.

Group Date Rose - With several men vying for the Bachelorette's attention on a group date, the Bachelorette decides who she felt she connected with the most and may give out a rose. This rose is usually given out at the end of the date and guarantees that the recipient will not be sent home during the next rose ceremony.

2-on-1 Dates - The dreaded "2 on 1." This happens when the Bachelorette chooses two men to join her on a date.  At the conclusion of the date, there can be multiple outcomes: one rose may be given out, both men go home or both remain.

Rose Ceremony – Typically during The Bachelorette episodes, a progression of true love is seen and the Bachelorette may say goodbye to those she does not feel a connection.  Calling each man by name, she asks "Will you accept this rose?"  The roses are given to the men she wishes to remain on a journey to find love and those who don't receive a rose immediately pack their bags to head home.

Final Four Men - This refers to the last four remaining men with the opportunity to win the Bachelorette's heart.

Hometown Dates – After dating for a few weeks, the Bachelorette visits the hometowns and families of the remaining men while entertaining the prospect of a marriage proposal in the near future.

Fantasy Suite – The Bachelorette has the option to invite a few select men to spend the night with her for one-on-one alone time in the romantic "Fantasy Suite," typically towards the end of the season.

Final Rose - The Final Rose refers to the season finale of The Bachelorette where she usually narrows her choice down to the final 2 men. Generally, she decides who will be chosen as the man who has won her heart and this man may receive the "final rose."

Men Tell All - "The Men Tell All" episode is a reunion where the Bachelorette joins the men who were sent home throughout the season.  The men reveal top moments from the show, bloopers are shared and tough questions are answered.

After The Final Rose – This episode immediately follows The Bachelorette finale.  The Bachelorette, the final rose recipient and the final bachelor she sent home join each other in a talk-show format.
