Season 8 of The Bachelorette began with 25 men eager for a chance at true love with Bachelorette Emily Maynard. But by the end of the night, only 19 men remained. Sadface.

So which 6 men didn’t make the cut? During the first elimination ceremony of the season, fitness model Jackson, family man Brent, super-suave Lerone Anu, marine biologist Jean-Paul LaCount, musician David Homyk and grandma-in-disguise Randy Lee were all sent home.

We’re kind of thinking that Brent’s 6 kids are slightly better off with him home and not all the way in North Carolina — but honestly, guys, we’re sad to see you go!
