The First Impression Rose is a rose offered to a contestant who made the best first impression to the Bachelor or Bachelorette. The contestant who receives this rose is safe from elimination at the first Rose Ceremony. In some cases, more than one contestant may receive a First Impression Rose at the discretion of the Bachelor or Bachelorette. The First Impression Rose can only be given out on week 1.
