Spoilers for the premiere of The Bachelorette.

Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette has already seen the craziest characters: A "box king," a freestyle rapper (not his profession, but it's how I'll ID him going forward), two pilots, a tractor-driving farmer, and a fence jumper.

There's incredulity over the fact that some how "The Box King" and the hot farmer "Matt Donald" went home instead:
