Tré's 'Bachelorette' Entrance Proves He's A Keeper

Katie Thurston's Bachelorette season isn't premiering until June 7, but I already have a favorite: Mr. Tré Cooper. The 26 year-old software engineer from Georgia peaked my interest immediately, and now, thanks to a new photo teasing his entrance, he has my attention. Seriously, Tré's Bachelorette entrance proves he's one to watch.

The Bachelorette dropped a series of official Night 1 photos on Wednesday night, and while it looks like most men chose to go with a standard limo exit, a few did come up with some gimmicks. Like Connor B., who showed up in a feline costume, looking like he just got off the stage of a high school production of Cats. But it's obvious that one stands out among the rest: Tré, who brought along something I'm not sure we've ever seen in Bachelor history — a ball pit. Well, technically a ball pit in the back of a pick-up truck, but a ball pit nonetheless.

Now, normally I would be against public ball pits (you never know what could be in there), but I think it's safe to assume that Bachelorette producers did not bring in a used ball pit for this meet-cute. Especially not if Katie is going to go in. And therefore, I love it.

What makes it even better is the fact that, based on this new promo, it looks like Tré will actually burst out from beneath the balls to surprise Katie — a move that is both very silly and very brave (not everybody likes to be scared!). Over the years, we've seen all the grand romantic entrances before — riding in on horseback or driving a super expensive, fancy car — this is much more memorable. I give Tré points for originality, charm, and guts. 10/10 great entrance.
