Stacey Elza, who was rejected on the season premiere of The Bachelor on Monday, nonetheless made quite an impression on Matt Grant and viewers.

But she says she didn't give Matt her "real" panties.

On Monday's The Bachelor: London Calling, the Chicago graduate student, 26, slipped Grant, 27, her underwear "to spice things up a little bit."

"I'm spontaneous, outgoing," she added, "and I figured, why not?"

It didn't work.

Matt Grant dispatched Stacey Elza as well as nine other would-be ex-fiancees Monday night, remarking that "I don't give a $h!t what country you're from, that is not cool." It's difficult to argue with that kind of logic.

Stacey Elza's creative move failed to woo Matt Grant.

But at least they were, um, washed.

"For the record, they were an extra pair," Stacey Elza added.

"They did not literally come off my body."

That's certainly nice to know... and at the same time a little disappointing. Oh well. Also on Monday, fortunately, Shayne Lamas made the cut.

It wouldn't be The Bachelor without thoughts from ESPN's Sports Gal.

Well, sure it would, but it wouldn't be quite as funny.

Here's what she had to say about Monday's premiere. Sounds like The Sports Gal liked it, and is a pretty big fan of Matt Grant... who wouldn't be?


The Bachelor started Monday night, and it was, as usual, a competitive first show because girls were doing everything to impress the bachelor -  including singing, arm wrestling and playing the clarinet.

It was like a beauty contest for crazy people.

They always have one black contestant who makes it two rounds before she gets voted off. [Bill Simmons, aka The Sports Guy] always compares her to Gonzaga because she's an underdog who never makes the Final Four.

Granted ...

Anyhoo, this year's bachelor is A HOT GUY FROM BRITAIN [take a bow, Matt Grant] and seems to really like this year's black contestant, so maybe she will make the Final Four before Gonzaga does!

The other highlight from last night other than THE BACHELOR BEING REALLY HOT was a woman with fake lips who got tanked, fondled the bachelor's knee and gave him her panties before passing out face-first on a bed.

I love this show.

Ladies, did I mention that THE BACHELOR IS SMOKING HOT????

Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant pared a very sexy field of gold-digging, fake seeming trophy wives down to 15. That's still too many for us to call any of them clear favorites, but one of them caught our eye - and his.

The hot blonde introduced only as Shayne is actually Shayne Lamas - the daughter of actor and action star Lorenzo Lamas, and a sister of former Lindsay Lohan boy toy A.J. Lamas. Small world, huh? Not that Matt Grant is complainin' ...

Shayne Lamas is one of 15 remaining contestants on The Bachelor.

Here's Shayne's official bio from The Bachelor homepage ...

Name: Shayne Lamas
Age: 22
Occupation: Actress
Birthplace: Malibu, CA
Hometown: Lake Havasu, AZ
Resides: Toluca Lake, CA

That's a lot of hometowns, but perhaps Shayne Lamas has another in mind... this season, of course, has been named The Bachelor: London Calling.

The Bachelor returned to TV last night and when we first laid eyes on Matt Grant, we were go glad that jackass Brad Womack is officially Bachelor history.

The debonair Englishman - the first international star in 12 seasons of The Bachelor - didn't waste any time charming the panties off his 25 potential ex-fiancees.

In one case, literally.

The Bachelor debuted last night with a cocktail party starring the handsome Matt Grant - and as the 25 women arrived, they had no idea he was British.

Not that they minded. After a night of getting to know them, Grant cut 10 women and got ready to embark on a journey with his 15 favorites.

Grant. Matt Grant.

How did Matt Grant reach his difficult decisions?

One by one, the women got out of the limo to meet The Bachelor, Matt Grant. Of course, everyone was nervous but he tried hard to put them at ease.

Some girls were confused by the accent and asked him where he was from. He took it all in stride, joking and flirting with the women.

At first, Matt Grant seemed most attracted to blondes, but a few others, like Marshana and Robin, caught his eye as well.

The women stopped at nothing to make a great first impression. Chelsea arm wrestled Matt and faked a loss to appease her. That's a new one.

Michelle P. played the clarinet while Ashlee sang a song that she wrote especially for Matt. Denise sparked a political debate and Carri chewed through a tin can.

Seriously, it had to be seen to be believed.

Stacey was craziest of all with a foul mouth, aggressive flirting, and the coup de gras - going Britney Spears style and removing her underwear in public.

She shoved it Matt's pocket. This pretty much punched her ticket home.

They're hot and they're about to be two of the biggest stars on the reality TV scene. DeAnna Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack on the stunning finale of The Bachelor last season, returns this summer as The Bachelorette.

Starting this evening at 9:30 EDT on ABC, Matt Grant takes over for Womack as The Bachelor begins its 12th season. Heck, all the handsome Englishman needs to do is pick a damn winner and he'll be an improvement over that stiff Brad.

Who are these hotties? We'll have to get to know them better in the coming weeks and months to really answer that, but for starters, here are a few Matt Grant photos and DeAnna Pappas pictures to get you acclimated ...

The identities of the 25 women who will compete for the affection of Matt Grant on The Bachelor: London Calling - the 12th season of The Bachelor hotness - have been revealed in advance of the season's March 17 premiere.

The 27-year-old "global financier" and Bishop's Stanford native represents the first international star of The Bachelor in the show's storied history.

Matt Grant is "totally charming and [a] witty English gentleman [who] works with millionaire businessmen, but he has something on his mind that is more urgent than any business deal - he wants to find the love of his life and to start a family as soon as possible," according to ABC's official bio of the stud muffin.

Monday, Matt Grant will get the ball rolling as he embarks on this quest by meeting his 25 hot, potential ex-fiancees during a cocktail party.

Matt Grant and Bachelor Women

Monday, these bachelorettes won't waste anytime in trying to woo Matt Grant.

Their methods are a bit bizarre - an aspiring singer croons him a tune she wrote just for him; a General Hospital actress starts boasting about her family's acting credits; a fashion designer models a handmade dress; and a graduate student takes off her thong and slips it into his pocket. And so on.

The 25 bachelorettes appearing on The Bachelor: London Calling have been revealed. Follow the jump for the complete list ...

Matt Grant: I then dumped her three weeks after The Bachelor.

Just kidding. We think. Would it surprise you with the track record of this show? The Hollywood Gossip thinks that it would not.

In any case, Grant, the star of The Bachelor: London Calling, which debuts next Monday, says of his experience on the long-running reality TV show, "I definitely found love. It was incredible. I'm still buzzing from it now."

Matt Grant is the first international star in The Bachelor history, something he was worried about prior to meeting his 25 American suitors.

"I was concerned about how that would go down," said Grant. "Overall, it went down really well. But I won't lie, I was concerned for sure."

One thing Grant wasn't concerned about was The Bachelor trend in which the show's stars always dump their chosen females in real life.

Or, in the case of last season's star, Brad Womack, they reject both of the finalists in favor of no one. Because that makes a lot of sense.

Fortunately, one of last season's two spurned finalists, DeAnna Pappas, will return as The Bachelorette this summer. Yet the sting lingers.

It's a good thing Matt Grant is not fazed by the past.

"If you were to go by track records, life would be pretty dull," he said. "Those guys weren't me. I was confident that I could come onto this and be myself and I was hoping that there would be that one person that would stand out - someone with those unique qualities. I'm not too fussed about the track record of the show... As far as I'm concerned, [The Bachelor history] didn't bother me in the slightest."

ABC's upcoming star of The Bachelor, Matt Grant, isn't just looking for a bunch of flings with hot American babes. Although he'll certainly take it.

No, the British financier is looking for love, a wife, and the mother of his children. He has a very close relationship with his father and credits him as being part of the reason he is so serious about starting his own family. Soon.

"My dad had a stroke at the end of 2006 and that shook me. I want my kids to know him, because he was a great father and I want him to be a grandfather to them. I wouldn't mind having three or four kids," he told OK! Magazine.

Other than his accent, which he describes as "geeky" (try sexy!), Matt Grant doesn't see too much of a difference between British men and American men.

There are a few things that set them apart, though.

"We drink more tea and have crazy sports like cricket. I like to consider myself a British gentleman," Matt Grant said.

Twenty-five lucky aspiring trophy wives will get to meet this British gentleman when he follows the lame footsteps of Brad Womack on The Bachelor.

The show makes its season premiere on ABC Monday, March 17.

America already knows DeAnna Pappas, a rejected finalist on last season's finale of The Bachelor who still star on The Bachelorette this summer.
But now it's time for America to meet Matt Grant.

The newest star of ABC's The Bachelor, Matt Grant is the first bachelor hailing from abroad (London). The 27-year-old global financier works with millionaires every day but would trade it all to find true love.

Like other stars of The Bachelor that have come before him, Matt Grant is looking to get married and start a family as soon as humanly possible. He says that his ideal partner is adventurous, outgoing, and fun.

Matt's take on participating on The Bachelor:

"I'm a single guy, I'm a red-blooded male. I have the opportunity to date hot American women. Enough said."

Well, there you have it! Here's the first pic we could find of the stud ...

Like past stars Andy Baldwin and Brad Womack, The Bachelor's new star, Matt Grant, is not only good looking, but athletic and intelligent, too. Hot!

Matt Grant received his B.A. in history and politics from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge where he was the captain of the university rowing team. He also skis and plays cricket and tennis. He also works out. A lot.

The Bachelor for season 11 will meet 25 women, one of whom could potentially be his wife, but most likely will get dumped after the show, on March 17.
