The premiere date was revealed March 27 on the season finale of “The Bachelor.” The episode ended with a “Bachelorette” sneak peek spotlighting Lawson nervously awaiting the contestants opposite host Jesse Palmer. Surprisingly, the first man to exit the limo was her brother, Nehemiah, who plans to infiltrate the men in disguise and gather intel throughout the opening cocktail party that could be very useful in helping her choose wisely.
