    "I'm shaking."

    Season 16 of The Bachelorette just premiered last night, and of the 31 contestants, it was pretty obvious that Clare Crawley had her eye on one man in particular.

    The moment Dale Moss stepped outside the limo to greet Clare, it was basically love at first sight.

    Dale is a 32-year-old (31 while filming) former pro football player from South Dakota — and he left quite a first impression on Clare during the episode.

    Here's how the meeting played out:

    Dale tells Clare "I really do feel this is gonna be special" and Clare responds with "I agree" and then the two share excitement about seeing each other inside
    Clare gets emotional as she says "I definitely feel like I just met my husband"
    Clare covers her eyes saying "I'm shaking'

    And he left so much of an impression on Clare from the moment they met that he received the first impression rose later on.

    So far, not only does Dale seem to be Clare's favorite — he seems to be a fan favorite, too. Here are just some of the best tweets about Dale from last night's premiere.
