Bringing plenty of drama and fun to 2012, “The Bachelor” season premiere aired last night, and it looks like it’s going to be a wild ride.

Ben Flajnik, a California winemaker, is the lucky lad this time around, and the ladies are already trying anything to get his attention.

For instance, one hopeful named Britney ended up bringing her 72-year-old grandmother along with her, and another gal named Lindzi rode in on a horse.

During the course of the episode, seven ladies were sent packing, and Lindzi ended up nabbing the first impression rose. Let the games begin.
