The Bachelor Season 16 premiere began with 25 women eager for a chance at true love with Bachelor Ben Flajnik. But by the end of the night, only 18 women remained.

So which seven ladies didn’t make the cut? During the first elimination ceremony of the season, Amber Bacon, Amber Tierney, Anna Snowball, Shira Scott, Dianna Martinez, Lyndsie James, and Holly were sent home.

We sure hope none of them quit their jobs to be on the show!
