Matt James is having quite the effect on his Bachelor contestants. 

In a new promo, exclusive to E! News, the new Bachelor is taking off his shirt and making out with women dressed as brides while the women seem to be losing their minds. Bri is astounded by his shirtlessness. Queen Victoria is...being annoying. Sarah might actually pass out. Meanwhile, a whole bunch of ladies are all receiving kisses from the man himself. 

"The new season of The Bachelor is taking off...literally," the voiceover says as Matt sheds his clothes. "And Monday, they're all in. But you've never seen them go all out like this." 

Twenty-four women remain after Matt's relatively drama-free night one, and it sounds like things are not going to remain drama-free for long—especially as we head into one-on-ones and massive wedding-themed group dates.

The Bachelor 2021: Meet the Women of Matt James' Season

ABC's description of the episode says, "Matt is intoxicating although the atmosphere among the women is plain toxic." A one-on-one with Bri triggers an "emotional bombshell" among the jealous women while Sarah herself gets jealous after her own one-on-one, "leading to multiple women spiraling out of control." 

Meanwhile, that wedding date is actually the largest group date in Bachelor history, with 18 of the women all dressed as brides for a messy-looking photoshoot. 

It all goes down in the next episode, and you can bet we'll be there with bells on. 

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
